    It can be helpful sometimes to know what sort of things people are eating, as it might give some ideas for a more varied diet. So, I'll start off with what I ate yesterday:

    Breakfast - 1 slice buttered Burgen toast (my breakfast every day, I don't like to run with too much in my stomach)

    Lunch - two soft-boiled eggs, two slices of buttered Burgen toast soldiers :) Activia yoghurt

    Evening meal - home-made spaghetti bolognese and a bounty bar.

    I also nibbled on chilli-dusted peanuts through the evening.

    Great idea Alan!

    Here's mine:

    Breakfast: 2x slices Burgen toast one with a little jam, the other marmite

    Lunch: Ham salad sandwich (Burgen again) and an apple

    Eve meal: Party buffet for my neice's 18th birthday. 2 small slices of pizza, some crisps/nibbles, salad & dips. All the drinks were fruit juice infused cocktails/mocktails so I stuck to water. Stayed strong and avoided cake, but still had a bit of a spike after (buffets are my food nemesis)

    It wasn't a disaster, but 5.4 to 12.2 at 2 hours :rolleyes:

    Thankfully Artoo (pump) steered me neatly back to 5.8 before breakfast this morning.

    Thank you Alan...i received another email after I pm'd you. The email showed that things will get worse. However I've starting to focus on a positive future because life is too short to stay upset.
    Susie has been fantastic company today so I'm cooking her favourite meal - Shepherds Pie......I want to spoil her because her operation is on Monday
