Me, I crave salt at night. Any salty snack will do. Of course you have to have guessed that I am sensitive to sodium and retain water like a sponge. I get a reasonable amount during the day, so it's not a lack of sodium. Every night the same struggle.....it's like a bad rerun! I had better get it under control soon or
If you fail, it's because you took a chance. If you succeed, it's because you grasped an opportunity!

I'm totally the same! I feel so terrible and angry afterwards so I can't understand why I continue to do it each night without fail. All I can think is not to give up, and keep taking it one day at a time, and to remember that we've still come a long way from where I was before I started this change of lifestyle.
Good luck!! We WILL get there, even if it takes just that little bit longer that we thought.

Well, what's helped me (and I gotta go get some more of this) is this gum that actually tastes like apple pie. There's a cheesecake flavored gum too. Even if you're not generally a gum lover, trust me, this stuff tastes like the real deal! Oh! if you have ant problems in your area, like where I'm at, put your gum in baggies. Another thing that helps me is keeping V-8 juice handy. I don't generally like it, but I force myself to guzzle as much as I can, when I get the night time munchies. I'm actually getting to like it more, as a result. Lastly, and I do this all day, not just at night, I add my favorite flavors to water bottles and sip off and on all day. Good luck!

I can't seem to make it 2 days without a SLIGHT BINGE. I am starting tonight AGAIN.. Hoping for one night of binge free living.. Wish me luck. This is my hardest struggle.. I am saint all day... what gives with the night struggle.. and YES I have sewing, crocheting ect all lined up and STILL make a pathway to the kitchen BOOOOOOOO AND THIS IS MY HEALTH I AM RUINING.... Dang..
When life pushes me beyond what I know When the joy fills me up When the fear tries to settle in When I am holding on to hope with each breath When all this and more leads me to feel unsure of the next step, sometimes I step outside, feel the warm sun upon my shoulders, look up at the blue sky, and make one decision: I fly.
