I echo what everyone else has said. We all struggle with fluctuations. As far as the night eating I allow myself to eat at night. I always have and I have still managed to lose weight. Granted I don't gorge or anything but I do allow myself a small bowl of cereal or another snack that gets me satisfied and do not feel guilty about it at all.
We are all here for you and KNOW
Enjoying life! :)

Welcome to the group. We all get frustrated over weight fluctuations. Remember that going up and down a couple or more pounds a day probably has more to do with water retention than with real weight gain. Try to limit sodium and drink plenty of water. I gained 5 pounds the other night because of the sodium in a really good pizza, but it was gone by the next evening. Yes, I also hate to see the scales go up like that, but I no longer panic quite as much when it happens!
My inspiration for 2011 -
"If we could learn how to balance rest against effort, calmness against strain, quiet against turmoil, we would assure ourselves of joy in living and psychological health for life. " Josephine Rathbone
" Taking ACTION is the ultimate power of Motivation. Nothing beats it, period." `~`~`~`~`~`~`~`~`~`~`~`~ Do not stop enjoying the wonders of life despite the inevitable hurting that impairs our soul. Hence, it does not make you less of a person when you weep in tears and are in distress. Nonetheless, learn to withstand the stings of time; rise on your feet for no one can ever bring back the soul in you and the beauty of life except you, and you and you."
