I have a problem with waking in the middle of the night to eat. I used to weigh 250 pounds, over the past year and a half I got down to 132 through diet and exercise. I had to force myself to stop counting calories because it had become such an obsession. I now just try to make healthier choices and stop eating when I'm satisfied. I have developed a problem where I wake up several times throughout the night and eat large amounts of food. It used to be every once in a while but it has now become every single night. I will go to the sleep and beg myself to not get up to eat, but after only an hour asleep I find myself in the kitchen eating handfuls of whatever I can get my hands on. It is not eating out of hunger, because I am not hungry. I seem to wake up unsettled and need to eat to comfort myself, but I don't know why I am unsettled. I often find myself pleading with myself to stop eating while I'm doing it, but I just can't stop. It happens no matter how much I eat during the day. Eating healthy during the day is a priority for me, because I want to be healthy, but when I get up in the night eating healthy doesn't seem to matter at all. I just don't know what to do. I don't want to gain weight, but more than that, I wake up so ashamed every single morning.
