Do I Trust These Numbers?

Hello! Today I got quite a shocker... I woke up and tested @ 110, pretty good for me. After breakfast of an omelet I tested (2hrs post) and was 121. Ok, well I had a veggie wrap (wheat tortilla) and when I tested 2 hrs later it was 229! I was surprised by that so I immediately tested again and it said 205. An hour and a half later I tested @ 145. Lesson learned, can't have tortillas! But do I trust those #'s even though it went from 229 to 205?

Learning a lot about testing...

There is a small error margin in the meters.  

But yes, it looks like you go high from tortillas and should avoid them in future.
