Hi Bella - welcome to the forum
I'm a night eater too. I think I do the exact same thing as you... I get up, go to the loo, then head straight for the kitchen without even thinking! I've had a couple of nights where I haven't eaten anything, and it's been great... but those nights are few and far between
It takes a huge conscious effort to make myself not wander into the kitchen at night. And it's hard to make a conscious effort when you are only barely awake! I think it's a matter of doing it once, then again the next night, and again until you just don't do it anymore... that'd be great wouldn't it
I'm a bit unfortunate in that I don't have a lockable door to my kitchen... in fact, there are no doors between my bedroom and the kitchen (well apart from my bedroom door, and it's probably best not to lock that!) So, I've started putting a chair in the hallway to remind myself not to go into the kitchen.... but I just walk right on by it. Tonight a pad of paper and a pen is going on the chair, and I will make myself sit and write down what and why I want to eat. After I week I'm sure I'll end up with a list of pathetic excuses and far-fetched justifications
Sorry Bella for writing a novel here. I'm still searching for the answer too
We will beat this!!
