I get so hungry at night too. Today I had plenty of calories already, and tonight I started to binge a bit - cheese, ice cream - but then I quit and decided to check out this SparkTeam. Maybe it's because of TOM but I think it's something more. I will journal now and see if I can get anywhere, or maybe I'll get sleepy and just sleep it of. Eeek I literally feel afraid of what I might do and the guilt that would follow.
Good for you for joining the team. Everyone here is struggling with the same things. Some have become quite successful in changing their behaviour. Please read as many posts as you can on the 21 Day Binge Free Streak Thread. And post yourselves, whether you have a good day, or a bad one. Being aware and admitting that binge eating is a problem is a huge first step.
Persevere. Even if you fall on your face, you have moved forward.
Instead of reaching for food...STOP and think! Write down how you're feeling, journal it out. If you are really hungry, then have something healthy. Eliminate any junk/bad foods from your house. Really try and evaluate what you're feeling & thinking when you are faced with the need to binge.
Everything we do in life is a choice...I choose to get fit & healthy.

Just a thought, don't know if it would apply to you. Was in same boat 30 years ago (17+/-). BF of the time was very caring and learned some about bingeing and when he told me all the things this can do to different parts of your body, that was when I began to turn this around. Now I emotionally eat sometimes, but I don't binge and I no longer throw up in shame afterwards. We are all in process; this is not something that has to be beat in a week or month. Think of yourselves as learning healthier habits for the long run. Wishing you all, and me too:), health and happiness! BTW, my dear friend, Myra, died of complications due to bulemia and anorexia. Pleases, please, learn to love and accept yourself, respect yourself and learn about this disease!
