One of my biggest problems is eating in the middle of the night. Most of the time I am half awake but there's those times that I don't remember getting up because I would say to my husband,"I didn't wake up and eat" and he would say,"Yes you did". I wouldn't have no recollection of it. Now I think my night eating was because I allowed myself to do it. Since joining Sp I'm not leaving much room for excuses but I've had slip ups because I felt like,as long as I was within my calorie range,I could eat at night. But for me,I know it's a problem. I eat and go right back to sleep while chewing and that's dangerous. It's a process for me because a few nights ago,I got up with the urge to eat but I settled for some crackers instead. I am sick but getting better.
I will bless the Lord at all times; His Praise shall continually be in my mouth. Psalms 34:1
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trust in Him! Psalms 34:8
Live simply. Love seriously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.
I used to be a really bad sleep eater. It all stopped when I moved into my condo 8 yrs ago. In my past houses my bedroom was always on the same floor as my kitchen. At my condo my bedroom is up a flight of stairs and down a hallway.

I just watched 48hours mystery and it was about mysterious medical conditions and this was one of them. they featured two women on there that they filmed literally sleep walking and eating. There is a condition for this and you might want to see your doctor. One lady went on medication and it worked for her, the other one had more issues so she was harder to treat, but they were working on it. Get checked out.

Nothing is forever why not live for today and make it the best day ever.
this is the 1st time for me in awhile...but ive done it b4 in the past when i wasnt watching my weight...i would always b hungry when i wake up, but lastnight i wasnt hungry at all i was sleep..lol..i mean to the point when i got the cake i went straight back to bed and ate the cake laying down falling back to sleep..lol seriously i was possessed..lol..
When I was pregnant and sometimes before when I was sleep deprived with my other kiddos I would wake up starving and eat. The funny part is I would be not completely awake. Like sticking cold food in the cabinet or leaving it out on the counter not awake. The nutritionist mentioned about not getting enough calories if you have an increased activity level. Or perhaps that fruit just wasn't enough. I heard your supposed to eat a little bit of carbs and protien at each meal as well as healthy fats to feel full. Anyways, know your not alone in that weird event. I hope you can figure out why you woke up to eat and get a handle on it before it becomes a bad habit!
