First of all, I have to say. I wasn’t absent because anything bad happened to me. My sister became quite unwell and I had to look after her and her 8 year old son, so I didn’t have time to do my daily blog updates.
Now, here’s what’s been going on the last week.
I’m still on Joylent, but not 100%. I’ve added 1 meal back into my daily schedule. Sometimes lunch and sometimes dinner. That one meal in generally MUCH more healthy than I was eating in the past. So my weight is hovering around 85kg at the moment (187lb). I find I’m eating a pretty big meal each day so that probably stops me from dropping more weight. I’m going to start swimming each day as of Wednesday. I’ll put get my updated blood tests done in a few days as well. I always intended to add possibly one meal a day back into my diet. I just did it a little earlier than I was going to. This was also partially because I had to cook for two other people for the week. I found that 3 meals a day of Joylent was getting a bit old, I needed the variety. I really wish Joylent would do a neutral flavour, that way I could add some stewed apples, or other fruits and instead of eating a meal per day I could sort of add food to the mix of my Joylent.
Anyways…. so how do I feel…. I feel amazing. I feel better than I’ve felt in many many years. My thinking is much clearer, my mood is stable, I haven’t had a single “crash” as I would call them. My high and low crash moods are completely gone. It took a few days to get used not being up and down, it was a little weird at the start but now it’s the norm. The anxiety which I usually get is GONE, I’m not sure what the exact cause of this is, but I can suffer pretty badly from anxiety at times, I haven’t had a bout of that since I started Joylent. My skin is a LOT better. (psoriasis update coming in a day or so with updated pics). I’m sleeping more normal now. I get to sleep a lot easier, and i stay asleep mostly through the whole night. This is another thing I haven’t been able to do for many years. I’m pooping normal again… daily, without strain. Once again, something that hasn’t happened in a long time. I just feel great. I even fed it to my sister when she arrived at my house very unwell, the change in her skin after 3 days on it was remarkable! Red skin patches that she has had for years were almost gone in just 3 days. She mentioned how when she looks in the mirror that she feels strange, like she isn’t looking at herself anymore..I got this same feeling when my red patches went from my face!
I can honestly say that I don’t know what I’d do if I didn’t have Joylent in my kitchen. I need to have at least one serving a day of it now. It’s the first thing I do every day now. I get up and drink my Joylent. I’ve changed the way I like to drink it, I now prefer it after it’s been in the fridge for a few hours and I don’t like to drink it freshly mixed anymore. I really hope my next order gets here before I run out. This is my new worry, I need to stay up on my ordering so I always have some here.
The above sounds like a bit of a sales pitch…. I assure you, I’m in no way affiliated with Joylent, it’s just my experience. I’m sure I could get what I’m getting from Joylent by eating certain foods etc, but no way near with the ease and cost of what I get with Joylent. That’s part of the reason that I don’t eat so well, I don’t want to buy, cook, clean after cooking. It just works for me.
So everything is going well!
