How long after eating was your test done? I'm concerned about the readings pre lunch and post-dinner that are in the 60's. That's getting into too low territory, which to me indicates that your breakfast bolus may have been too high for what you ate and your dinner bolus was too high as well since you dipped to 61 afterwards. In his book "Think Like a Pancreas", Gary Scheiner has a table showing target ranges pre-meal and 1 hour post meal with a specific pre-meal target. For "typical" control (vs Very tight or looser control), , the pre-meal target range is 70 to 160. One hour after your meal your target should be below 180 and you should strive to have a pre-meal target of 120.
An average of 107 in itself is good and if consistent over 3 months, your A1c would be in the 5's which is excellent but it would be better without the low readings in the 60's.

Your average is great, but you want to avoid the lows. Those can be dangerous. Any average below 140 is wonderful. I just hate to see you were in the 60's twice.
