Nighttime Eating

I've been at it again...

The overeating. The binges. The multiple dinners. The carbs. The not-even-close-to-Vegan junk. I am OUT of FrEAKing conTROL.

I can't seem to go more than 12 hours without craving fried food or ice cream or crap of some sort, and justifying it by saying "I'll start over tomorrow." Then I do start over tomorrow. And then night comes...

For some reason, night is a trigger for me. I love sitting in my bed, catching up on DVR, and eating myself sick with comfort food.

I joined WW online. I've done it before. This cycle will never end, will it?

Sick (both physically and mentally),
The VP


  1. I totally understand. Eating at night is one of my problems, too. Now that I'm old and fall asleep by 9pm not so much time to eat anymore.

    I don't buy food that I don't want to eat. If I don't have it in the house, I won't eat it when (there is no if) I get a massive munchie attack. You should see me tearin apart the pantry and realizing there is nothing but dried beans and bananas, so I decide I will eat TEN bananas (that'll show me!) but then I can never get more than two or three down! Whole food binging satisfies in a way junk/fried/sugary foods never did.

    I know, it's so hard and, believe me, I'm not trying to oversimplify it or tell you to do what I do, just sharing my own experience in hopes you can use it on your journey :)


  2. This is a huge trigger for me, too. Kids are in bed, time to watch some TV/zone out and along with that is the snacking. Usually I'm still full from dinner, but it doesn't seem to stop me. I am walking down a very parallel path to you VP.
    Your post today made me think that maybe you would be interested in the podcast I have been listening to since the start of the year. It's called Inside Out Weight Loss and its available on iTunes.
    Don't be too hard on yourself, this too shall pass. And it sounds like you've been awesome sauce at running, so there's that!
