Food... Day or night I just want my balance to be right!

Wednesday, January 04, 2012


I hate that I struggle so badly in the middle of the night to eat food. I hate that I will wake up one or two time and automatically without any or hardly anythought go right to the kitchen. During the day I will anaylze my thoughts of why I eat in the middle of the night why I cant say no and resist the temptation. I know that I am craving something that I scared that I have a lack of that I am trying to fill with food. I know at night there is a small part of me that is very deep within me that I probably supress during the day. Maybe I should be more mindful to that part during the day and I can help that part of me for the night. In the moment of waking up for the "fix" my mind wont allow myself to stop and think about saying no to that craving of food. If I do I basically ignore it and allow the binge to go through. Feel like crap about it the next day and I dont lose. I just have to keep trying new way till i figure it out. Sad about this, I hope there is a light at the end of the tunnel soon. Until then I will keep on controlling whats in my control and do well during the day and exercise which overall is easy for me, Ughhhh wish I can just sleep instead of eat.

    Well you know that when we eat we trigger certain areas of the brain-and I think those are the same areas that are sated by chocolate, prozac, and yes, orgasm. It is simply how the human body functions. In fact, I wouldn't feel bad about having a tiny stash of very dark chocolate close to the bed as well-its enough to calm that craving and very small amount of calories (and the higher the cacao %, the less sugar it is-some companies have a 99% cacao chocolate that is sugar free-great for diabetics and vegans)

    I woke up last night and went straight to the kitchen-in order to decrease the 'damage' I had a spoonful of cranberry apple butter.

    This is going to sound...well it will sound how it sounds. In order to supress my desire to eat in the middle of the night I have started doing two things-one-have a bottle of water nearby for a sip-two-masturbate when/if I wake up hungry. I think it triggers the same area of the brain or whatever-but it does work 95% of the time. Plus I burn calories! emoticon

    What if, instead of getting up to eat, you held on to a Teddy Bear!
    Get yourself a real big one and squeeze it really tight when the urge sets in.
    You can even talk to it and tell it what's wrong.
    Or, maybe you can get on sparks and write about what you're feeling at that instant(you're up anyways).
    There's always someone on spark no matter the time.
    Hope this helps!
