    Hey Brenda, how is it going?

    Hi Tracey, I am recovering from a UTI/ YI :/ I haven't had either one in over a year. A couple years ago I was bit by a tick and had the tell tale bulls eye rash but the basic blood test came back negative (That test mostly comes back negative anyway) so since I had the rash they gave me antibiotics for only two weeks and I think it should have been longer but I'm not a doctor and what do I know :D Anyway I believe that my infections was from the Lyme disease. Every once in a while I will have symptoms such as aching joints, numbness in my face or hands and infections. So this past week I was reading up on what I can do to help my symptoms and was told that prebiotics/probiotics should help so I went to Amazon and found some all natural pills called Hyperbiotics Pro-Women and will take these. Keeping my fingers crossed that this will help o:)

    Oh Brenda, that doesn't sound fun! Hopefully it'll clear up soon! <3

    I pray you are back to normal soon and the prebiotics work for you. You were missed.

    I've been taking the pre/probiotics for about 2 weeks now and so far so good :)

    I've been maintaining at 125 for the past 3 weeks and this week is the first week I will be eating OMAD everyday and they will NOT be low carb :# I also won't be having anymore splurge days and after my body gets used to eating carbs and I start losing weight again I will then start eating 2MAD either 1 or 2 days a week and OMAD the other days. I hope this works o:)

    Brenda, I have the same love/hate relationship with keto. Imagine this! Crawfish etouffee and rice didn't kill me yesterday!

    Hope you continue to feel better.
