I was beginning to think it was not going to come down but I actually had one of 98 yesterday before dinner. Could have knocked me over with a feather.

Mornings this week have been in the 120's to 140's I feel like I'm making a little progress.

Holy cow, anything over 160 now is a high and do I feel it, I've been as low as 93 and as high as 195 in the last week. I wanted to see some fluctuations so I could figure out how different foods were affecting me and I guess I got what I wished for.

most of the readings are between 120 and 150 so its progress but now I feel the roller coaster that I've heard others talking about.

A step in the right dirrection. Lower is always good as long as it doesnt get too low. Yeah, the ups and downs that we cant figure out can be a mind bender.

I added Gymnema 2x a day late last week, my AM BGL has been 114-127 my other readings are all between 95 and 140 with the exception of one at 156.

Had a huge BLT (with actual toast!!)slathered with mayo heaped with bacon and a bowl of tomato soup and only hit 140.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate this site and the fellowship it provides. Thanks for the encouragement!

I was really starting to wonder what was going on with me with my numbers sticking at about 180-200 and it had been suggested to me that if they didn't start coming down I might be a 1.5 and need insulin too.

now all I have to do is figure what is actually working… HAR! I think I'll save that stressor for another day and just enjoy the win this week.

I have been having the same highs. This week I have been very commited to eating right, 3 meals, 3 snacks (one before bed) and exercising. My numbers have come down to fasting 98-110 right where I want them to be! It is a balancing game!

Keep working at it - Good job!
