Yes,your reading are good!

Detailed Answer:
Hello
I have gone through your query and understand your concern.

At your age ,It is very important to avoid hypoglicemia.
For this reason,it is better if your blood sugar levels are between 120-130 mg/dl fasting or before meals and until 200 mg/dl after the meals.
This is correspond with the A1C result 7%-8%.

You have good result in the morning.If you always start the day with these results,you will have good result all day long.

Well done!

Hope i have clarified all your doubts.
Best regards.
