    Still alive ... and didn't binge too much after coming off my 30 DONN, amazingly. Still hovering in the low 140s, probably due to stress. A new source arrived on our doorstep a couple of weeks ago,...

    Got my first unassisted pullup 8/03. I'd been doing pushup work mostly—sllloooooooow and really deep pushups (nose touching the floor pushups), and think that helped get my nose over the bar.

    Four days left to my 30DONN and I'm doing really well. I'm also within spitting distance of the 130s in weight, which has me happy beyond imagining. Oh, and I'm very close to a full pullup!

    Very busy week; with some increased stress (and a new source of stress) to boot. Still, I'm doing well on the 30DONN: no cheating with grains, off-plan dairy, or nuts so far. Slipped a little on the...
