    I’ve owned and used a couple of these radois recently. Make sure they have good battery backup. I went through a couple of the First Alert units until I got one that worked (quality control issues?) (power supplies dying, locking up, failing to respond to keypress, etc.), but even the last one I got missed some alerts. I have finally replaced it with the Reecom R-1630 and that one has been rock solid performer. There should be automatic weekly tests in your area, which should register on your radio. If you haven’t got a test alert recorded in more than about 10 days, your radio may not be picking them up (serious saftey issue).VA:F [1.9.21_1169](from 0 votes)

    I am a 57 year old female, 5 6 and I wish I wegheid 148! We’ve been wheat free for just over a month now and weight loss is slow, 2 3 lbs and they fluctuate. I feel much better though. Aches are gone, except for my feet. Carpal tunnel in my hands even seems better, maybe because inflammation is down/gone. I take a thyroid med and may need to have that adjusted. Also a blood pressure med which I believe I understand may inhibit weight loss. And a statin which I would love to be rid of. Following this blog is very motivating and helps to keep my head around the concept of wheat free. Thank you to everyone for posting your stories.
