I am also a night eater. I try to exercise like crazy to offset some of the calories and keep lots of health foods to snack on. I have tried the brush your teeth and use mouth wash to stop yourself from eating late, that works for me. Last night was a football game so I really have a hard time not snacking during those. Good luck on your new goals and keep us informed on how you are doing.
I've found without question that the best way to lead others to a more plant-based diet is by example - to lead with your fork, not your mouth. ~Bernie Wilke

Kim, Welcome back to SPARKPEOPLE! You have the right attitude so I know you will lose the weight and get healthier. Any time you feel like binging please come and post and we will give you encouragement. GOD BLESS! Louise
Hi Everyone! ... My name is Kim. Been here before - needed a new start. I am hoping this time will be the time that my spark is re-lighted. :) I live in Toronto Canada with my husband. Don't have any kids but lots of stuffed animals. :) I am addicted to horror movies, facebook, hello kitty, black&white photography, reading, listening to music (all kinds), and apparently collecting stuffed animals. :)
I am a binge-eater, late night snacker, emotional eater, addicted to food (mostly sweets & high calorie stuff). :( The worse time for me really in the day/night is around 11pm. I guess I should really make sure to be in bed by then. (haha) I really need a lot of help to control my binge-eating and emotional eating. There are times that I just want to eat everything in sight.. and, sometimes I *do*.. & then totally regret it about 5 minutes later. :( I feel like I don't get very much support from home so that is why I am here. For support. I know that SP has a *great* support system .. because I was here for 10 straight months before. And, had a lot of great friends who stood beside me through the bad times AND the good times. :) SO.. I guess I'm just looking for that same kind of support now.. while I try to get back on track.
By re-joining SP - I am hoping to re-find my spark and make new (as well as get back my old) friends! Also.. I am hoping to get back on track. I've been off track too long and I am totally unhappy with myself. So - I am hoping to change all that. :)
Good luck with all of your goals... we can DO THIS. :)

PS: Also this being September 11th.. I would like to say that I am thinking (and praying) for all those who lost family and friends during the terriorist attacks on September 11th, 2001. :(
