Just woke up at 2am, first thing I did was go into the kitchen, without even thinking I just ate a plain bagel.

Whyyyy do I do this to myself? I didn't even want it, I was just on autopilot!

How frustrating! I know what you mean I've done the same thing many times over the years. :(

you did it because you were on autopilot. Period. This is a habit. Change your routine so that when you wake up you DELIBERATELY do something differnt to usual so you avoid food until you are awake enough to control habitual responses. Maybe you will need to put a reminder on your bedroom door for a while until you have a new habit in place

15kg gained again (as at October 2010).

thanks everyone!

kate - really?? bagels are awesome :) but maybe its better to not know what you are missing.. hmm

tegan - you're very right. when im at joels house, i NEVER snack in the middle of the night because its a different environment, so i guess i dont get the cues i do at home? and because they are boys, so there isn't usually a lot of food...

but yeah. definitely gotta change my habits. maybe when im at home tonight i will put my chair in front of my door or something so i have to move that to get out and see how that works.. hopefully ill be good!

i wanna weigh in tomorrow, so thats some motivation!
