Hi, my name is Tissa.
I have a weight problem enitrely (ok not entirely but mostly) due to my sleep-eating habits. Its worsened dramatically since my second was born June 2010. I gained about 20 lbs in a couple months after she was born and I would eat a few thousand calories between midnight and 7 am. Coupled with some night-time emotional eating...I feel like I'm in weight loss hell.
This first started when I was a little kid and for the longest time it wasn't even something I was fully conscious I was doing. I could wake up with a pile of wrappers on my bed and once a scissor next to my face to open said wrappers.
I had success stopping this habit with SP's help a few years ago. But its reared its ugly head and despite tons of exercise and day time portion control...I can't win. I feel AWFUL. Really incredibly awful and out of control. I do remember that once I stopped stocking the cupboards with sugary food and eating three times a day it stopped and I slept better but my family doesn't want to stop eating sugary food and my youngest still wakes many times at night...so even if I could sleep better myself it doesn't matter.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
