107! Better than my average over the last couple of weeks which has been 110-113.

Perplexing! I hiked most of the day, bacon and eggs for breakfast. I ate hard boiled egg, 2 bacon strips, cheese and a few nuts while hiking. Drank water and made hot tea. Dinner at home was a small salad with ranch, a large croissant filled with a lot chicken salad mix with mayo, cheese and cranberries piled really high. Bulletproof decaf. I know the croissant is pretty high carb and my wife boiled the cranberries to remove any sugar, still had a wonderful flavor.

108- took a short time off of the CarbSmart ice cream. I did OK on it back in May- June, but the body has decided it is not for me. I was enjoying the low 80s. I can take a hint.

3.8 (68). Usually when it's that low first thing in the morning, I feel like crap... but not this morning for some reason.

I ran that pattern for about a month, then I cut back to just one after meal test, at one hour at breakfast and lunch and two hours after dinner.
Six months later, I made my doctor very happy by dropping the post meal tests except when there's something new on the menu.
Thanks for that, John. I don't have to get prescriptions for test strips, I just go buy them (in Australia, Diabetes bits and bobs are heavily subsidised, especially for those on Insulin) But I still think 10 a day is too many, I'm just not that dedicated (nor are my stabbable bits) I was just wondering what "normal" is for most.

aha! Likewise, really. I'm hoping my A1c will be under 6 this time round (due to get done in late November). Its shaping up pretty well.

And for this morning, a 3.9. It was very very early am when I tested, but I'm up and awake so I'm counting it.
@ Xenon: me too when it goes that low but my bod is gradually getting used to lower levels so I also feel pretty good this morn. 3.3 the other day was a bit awful but I expect to get back to tolerating that, as well.

99 for me this morning. I ate a small dinner, so I guess I caught it right after my liver helped me out!

68 (3.82) this cloudy dark morning, 82 (4.5) at bedtime.

For the first couple of months I did the same as John, but I also did a bedtime reading too. So 11 -12 tests a day. If my numbers weren't coming down at 2 hrs I did 2.5 and even 3 hours. It was a lot, but it gave me much info on what foods did to my bg. Now I only test fasting and bedtime unless I eat something new. And like Nancy every so often I will run a full day of tests just to be sure everything is still OK. I have crazy good Rx coverage so the cost of strips was never an issue.
