I agree with the person that suggested you drink water if you wake up. You might be thirsty instead of hungry.
If you're truly physically hungry and feel so ravenous that you can't go back to sleep, you could eat a slice of whole wheat toast or a couple of crackers or something small to stave off the hunger. (I don't like to eat after I've brushed my teeth because I feel I have to brush them again before going back to sleep or I'll get cavities.) I think carbs cause sleepiness more than protein - I think protein wakes people up - so that's why I suggested the toast & crackers. I no expert, though! You'd have to add what you ate to your nutrition tracker.
When you get a chance, you might want to set up your own Spark Page. That way other members can "friend" you, leave encouraging comments on your page, and send you a Spark Goodie now and then. It's a good way to connect with others.
PS - in response to the suggestion that you change your Spark name, you could just call yourself RIGHTONGIRL!
