First off, I need to recognize 9/11. There is no better emotional tribute than the video below. Just stunningly beautiful.
Has anyone else experienced the Keto Flu?
I believe that is what is currently happening to me and it is awful, BUT my body is adjusting to something wonderful. I'm getting migraines as well, but they may be induced by the Keto Flu and the fact that I am due for my Botox for Migraine.
Discovering Keto 177 drops on Amazon is amazing, and have been taking them for about 5 days now. I'll have to check back on my notes. I'll be posting these on social media soon, with an update on how much weight I have lost and the effects. One thing is for sure, they are working.
It takes intermittent fasting to make Keto effective, so I don't eat after a certain time, and try to get around 15-17 hours between meals, so that usually takes me to 10am before I can eat again following dinner. It's effective because it puts your body in a state of using fat for fuel instead of muscle. There is a ton of science behind it. Take a look at the video below for more on the science. It's pretty interesting for a geek like me;)
Knowing that there are a ton of people out there, like me, who are addicted to carbs, I felt the need to get a handle on mine to show that it can be done. Sugar is extremely addicting. Carbs in general are extremely addicting. Me? I have a sweet tooth like no ones business. Once I have a taste, I need more. It becomes a vicious cycle of an addict. A serious sugar addict. So, it's pretty much all or nothing.
Something else I tried is Sheer Miracle WIDE AWAKE concealer. I have not been so amazed by a beauty product in a long time! This stuff is the stuff of miracles. Seriously miraculous! Just take a look at the process in my video below. If you click on the picture above, it will take you directly to this product. Just use code SIMPLYBYNATASHA to get $5 off $18 or more. It take so little product to make such an amazing difference! Just watch...

There were child birth classes that my spouse never attended, or would come to late and after a few drinks. He didn't acknowledge me as his wife as I grew in size, and would take longer at business meetings and installations, or would not come home at all.
There were 3am calls that he would get while I was "sleeping". He would leave and then come home early in the morning, or not at all.
He bought a gun, started not wearing his ring, had his brother move in without making me part of the decision, had long discussions with his brother only in Spanish, again leaving me in the dark.
The day came. I was at work and had a feeling that I was going to give birth that evening. So, I told everyone at work what to do with my accounts during my time out of the office. I think they probably thought I was crazy to be saying that I was going to give birth that evening. I just knew, like I have so many other things.
I went home and took a nap. At about 6pm my water broke. I got my stuff together to go to the hospital and my spouse didn't believe that I was about to give birth. It took some time to get him to take me to the hospital.
Finally, I got to the hospital and they saw that my water had broken, so they admitted me. It was about to be a long ride. 17 hours of labor.
I wasn't dilating, so they had to induce me. When they did that, my spouse wasn't even there. A friend came and was by me when I was delirious and in pain. The hospital had given me all kinds of pain meds, but not an epidural. They said that it would make it so I wouldn't dilate as fast. The other pain meds just made me feel out of it, which made the experience worse.
Also, they had to turn my baby while inside of me so that he would not be breach. That was so painful!
Finally, the epidural. Right after that, I dilated fast and had my baby within a 45 minute period. I think that the epidural made it so I could relax enough to dilate. The same thing would happen with my second, but a totally different experience.
My spouse showed up just in time to see my son come out. He actually acted excited at that point. But, that would not last. It was a short time of happiness and hopefulness.
However, having my son changed my point of view on everything. I had someone that was my own now. He was part of me and I have cherished having him ever since I was pregnant with him. Blessings come in these kinds of life-changing packages. This one would steer my life so that it was so much more on track than I could have ever expected on my own. Amazing changes were about to take place, but I had to go through hell to get to the other side and then realize my blessing and the changes that they would create for my life.
