My morning sugar number are still hanging in there. Have not managed to get them down, but also managed to keep them there. Got a couple of theories on why the numbers are higher - 1) Put on some extra weight on the waist. The scale does not show it, but the pants do. I think some muscle is converting into fat. Have not been exercising and also been drinking full fat milk. 2) No exercise. Will be corrected now. 3) Extra stress hangover from the last couple of weeks recovering my son from his surgery. The good thing is that he is doing better and now some of that stress is going away, but has left a deep emotional scar on all of us.
