Congratulations! I am so glad that it sounds like you are finding No-s helpful during this difficult time. Of course I hope you've discussed it with your doctors and have gotten their OK. Best wishes on all fronts! Please keep us posted.

Put "maintenance and sanity" first, and you get weight loss as a bonus. Put weight loss first, and long term, you get neither. I don't know if this is always true, but it certainly appears to hold in the case of Kaalii, who started No-S for "maintenance and sanity," and lost weight and significant b...

Uppy elbow is pretty much gone. Think I owe it to these eccentric chin-ups (still just 3 a day, barely anything). Thanks again! I've started up with "shovel" and "armwrestle" again and so far no issues. I may try quitting the rubber truncheon next month to see if I can reclaim those few minutes ever...

With the help of some wise, moderate "mods" she's even exceeded the quantitative goals she had in mind when she started.

I've been doing the "eccentric chin ups" every day in March, just a few (3 actually) but I think it's actually helping. So hard to tell with these things. The truth is what I feel now isn't so much of a pain or actual discomfort as an unpleasant "awareness" of the spot, a kind of sensitivity which I...
