I was looking for articles on this topic and stumbled across this team. I was so surprised by reading so many introductions which felt as if I was writing them. I have felt deep down inside that I have had a bigger problem for while and have refused to face it head on. It started before I quit smoking 5 years ago. One night I found myself sitting in bed, on my laptop with a cigarette AND candy in my hand. I felt horrible, and a few other adjectives. There I was, 40 + pounds overweight, claiming I smoked to keep from snacking, shoving gummy bears in my mouth between drags on a cigarette.
Well since then I have been diagnosed with RA, got out of the army, quit smoking and even trained up enough and ran a 1/2 marathon. BUT my original problem is still tormenting me...I self sabotage by eating sometimes thousands of calories at night.
I enjoy eating at night, I plan my evening run so that I can eat dinner an hour after running. It is honestly my daily treat, but the problem is, after I eat dinner that late, I cant stop. Food items will pop into my head and I like a crack head I just have to have them. I am amazed I have been able to lose the weight I have and keep it off.
Anyway, felt good to write all that down...if anyone wants someone to team up with to offer support or whatever let me know!
