I see you're losing well. It's good that you've come up with a strategy that works on this problem. At this point, I'm keeping sweets in the garage fridge, so I'm able to avoid eating during the night--though I'm buying sweets again and eating too much of them and other comfort food while I'm awake. The amount I overeat varies depending on how stressed out/ exhausted/ upset/angry I am at any given moment. I have to feel not-depressed and not-anxious to refrain from buying the stuff. How are you able to resist buying the wrong foods?

I started eating in the middle of the night since I was about in my late teens. I would get up and my mother would see wrappers and crumbs and ask me if I got up in the middle of the night to eat. In the past few years my middle of the night eating has been just a piece of cheese or some other protein. I cannot have any treats in the house and fortunately I don't have to have them for my boyfriend who lives with me so I'm safe. I now keep a drink by my bed and that helps. I get up and take a drink and go back to sleep.

I started getting up during the night to eat as a 17 year old college freshman away from home for the first time. I kept doing it, though, night after night, for the next 30 plus years. I stopped cold 15 years ago when we bought this house. Now I only wake up when I know there's something good to eat in the house--a dessert. It doesn't feel now like it did before: I no longer have that driven, 'get out of my way, don't get between me and the cake or the ice cream gets it' feeling.
