    Every time they do blood work on me, they say I am fine. Lately I have been having some crazy high FBS. Then yesterday it was 109. I just had a full blood make up and my A1C was like 5.3 which is good and they calculate my average FBS is 105.

    Maybe your meter needs calibration?

    This meter does not require recalibration so I am not sure.

    OO feeling more than empty and its not a happy feeling. 50 minutes until I can heat and have my broth.. I should have done it on plan time

    My meter came with some liquid I was supposed to put on one of the sticks while it was in the meter to make sure it was reading correctly (is that calibrating it? I am a newb at this thing)

    Yes. For blood testing, You usually also have to make sure that you set the code on your machine the code on your bottle of test strips. Your meters may be different, however. I am using meters that belonged to my mother. They are a few years old.

    UGH.. back. Today is dd for me. This weekend while I made some good choices, I also made poor choices. Weight is up again (I expected this) and FBS is 108 which I DO NOT UNDERSTAND!! I ate crap and it hovers in the 100's? wow.

    Next weekend when its my birthday, there will not be all this crap.

    Sleep: I am having some trouble FALLING sleep, but staying asleep I am doing pretty good. I found an app that is resting sounds and does the beats thing for deeper sleep. This with AT has been great. The falling sleep is hard because I am having trouble regulating my body heat initially. Too hot, flip off the blankets, get chilled, pull them back, foot out, leg out, blankets flipped off, pull them back etc. etc. etc. GRRRR However, there is no sign of hotflashes though but I do have a fan going in the room. I have noticed this since temps here have reached about 70. Good grief, what will summer be like?

    I had trouble last night for exactly the same reason. The house had warmed up to 77, not quite warm enough to turn on the A/C but a tad too warm for me to fall asleep in combination with being a bit sore from gardening and starting TTOM. We have a ceiling fan as well as a box fan that I have pointed at my feet, but we run A/C in the summer, so once it actually warms up steadily it goes on.
