Day 254: TSW hates winter

So an interesting observation this week. I had to fly to Japan for a wedding, and it’s midwinter over there right now. It’s around 5 degrees C at nights, and 10-12 degrees C in the day if you’re lucky. Luckily I was only there for 4 nights, because in less than 24 hours my skin […]

Day 205: Still Going Strong!

Just a quick update on my skin. It’s doing well. I still have “flares” but they are almost unnoticeable, at least compared to before. What happens is my skin gets quite thin and fragile and starts to dry up, but if I walk down the street I’ll look normal. It usually passes in a week […]

Day 193: Marathon #2 – The comeback must be greater than the setback

Honestly, nothing really went right from the start. It was 30°C, we were sweating like dogs waiting in those starting pens. Six months ago my goal was to run 2km and get through NMT. Six weeks ago my goal was to finish the Auckland marathon. On Saturday it was to finish Singapore in 4:15. At […]

Day 152: From TSW Warrior to Marathoner

One of the proudest moments of my life today, and it wouldn’t have happened without TSW. I know I’ve written that I’ve been exercising daily in my updates. However, what I didn’t tell you was about 9 weeks ago, I started secretly training for the race of my life. I’ve always hated running. However when […]

Day 130: Healing

The collagen and meat diet has been working great. The shedding was insane a few weeks ago, but it’s all been replaced with new and much healthier looking skin. I looked in the mirror today and my first thought was “Wow, I’m healing.” Here’s what I’m eating every day: 500g grass fed beef or lamb, […]

Day 121: Meat Meat Meat

One of the interesting things I’ve noticed in this journey is I keep trying lots of different things but in the end I keep circling around to the same solutions. The biggest thing for me is still nutrition. I learned recently Dr Sato said that steroids are completely eliminated from our body after 1 month […]

Day 113: Collagen!!!

Haven’t updated in a while! I restarted NMT strictly 4 days ago. For the last few weeks I’ve been totally off the wagon, drinking smoothies whenever I wanted and eating like a pig. Of course it was all healthy foods so I didn’t blow up, but still my healing seemed to stall. Now this flare […]

Day 94: Mixed Results

I’m now 94 days NMT. Honestly I’m not quite where I wanted to be. I would say around Day 40-50 I was at my best, it felt like I was 80% healed and everything was going to plan. Then small things started popping off again until I had a full on second flare around Day […]

Day 79 NMT: Tears

Man, I broke down today. The day started out okay, considering my skin. This second round flare went to another level overnight and really covered my whole torso. I slept badly, and scratched a lot of the areas that were looking good the day before. So it was back to square one. I told myself, […]

Day 77 NMT: Second flare is here!!

This past week I have finally entered my second flare. It took so long to eventuate I thought I may have escaped it, but not so lucky. It actually started the week before but it only developed into a full on flare up this week. The biggest problem area is my neck and chest, which […]
