Why can I do so well all day long and then binge like no tomorrow come evening? I have no reason that I am aware of and I feel awful. I really don't want to admit it but I am tired of denying it too. If I deny it then it must not exist right? Well it is real and it is going to kill me if I don't accept it and find a way to use food for fuel and not for comfort, acceptance, avoidance and the one hundred and one other excuses I come up with. I gave a close family member a "lecture" about excuses, perhaps I need to look in the mirror and give that lecture to myself.

OK - I can't change the past, but I can move forward and start again right now - even if it is bedtime!

    I have that same problem. I suggest going to bed instead of sitting up as a good way to curb night-time eating.

    I share your mystery - I am determined and fine all day and when evening comes it all crackles and I go eating stupid things....takes a great effort to break that habit I think!

    I started eating frozen berries at night. Cures my sweet tooth, they're really yummy and healthy too. I put them in a cup at dinner and they're defrosted by the time I crave sweets. I had to find healthy options because I have no will power.

    You've at least admitted that your eating habits during the evening are not as healthy as they are during the day so maybe you can change up your evening routine so that you don't get trapped again. I too have more success during work than I do at night. Keeping the bad snacks out of my home has helped me with evening snacking. emoticon
