Last night around 3 am I had an acid reflux attack or indigestion of some sorts. I was awakened by a burning sensation in my throat and it was just too uncomfortable for me to lie down. I needed something to make be belch and couldnít find any soda so I took a couple sips of beer, belched, and went to sleep for a few more hours. I think it was the cookies that I ate before I went to bed and the crumbs I ate this morning. Yes I ate cookie crumbs for breakfast, sad I know. My cycle causes me to crave sweets but I am going to have to find a new way to satisfy that craving if what happened last night is the result of it. I was doing some research online and the very foods that I love especially during that time of the month should be avoided. I also found out that I should avoid acidic foods and beverages. Duh! I thought I was helping the situation by drinking beer but I guess I made it worse. I stopped in Walgreens for Rolaids and a cherry coke (and drank most of it before I was able to research foods to avoid) So I am DONE! I canít continue to fill by body with garbage. It's not worth it. What I felt last night was one of the most uncomfortable feelings in the world. On a positive note, I had my first official TOPS meeting as a member and it was great! They gave rewards for weight loss and inspiration. My goal is to lose 2-3 pounds so that I can ring that bell next week! (we ring the bell when we weigh in if we lose) May God be with me.
