I sooooooo hear you ladies. I too am on sleep medications, and I will eat my cheeze-its or dry cereal to ward off the nausea, then continue to snack on them as I read my book that also allows my slumber to capture me. I am a very light sleeper even with my sleeping pills, so as soon as I am up...I eat more and this usually involves a sweeter snack. In my head a voice ensures me that this one little sweet snack will give my my slumber I soo seek...then WHAM...I have indulged on a candy, Twinkies, cake or cookie.
I have also tried to NOT buy anything that I will binge on..cracker, sweets, cereal and this has also failed. I will eat soup, bread and even foods that repulse me.
I have also tried to eat only fruits and nuts at night...and this also becomes a problem as i will make myself sick on them.....
I can counsel others on how NOT to binge, but they are one-ply words...a binger is a binger...I think we must dig deep and find and resolve the reason...as just knowing the reason is not enough.....grrrr!
