It is hard for me to stay on my diet living alone since my husband passed away. I am o.k. during the day but at night it seems like all I want to do is snack on fattening foods. I don't have anyone to talk to at night and so I get lonely and depressed and so I eat. At least when my husband was there I would be talking to him all night and didn't think about eating. All my friends are up North and there is no where to go, I don't like to drive at night so I stay home.View Thread
Yes, this is when I eat the most even though I eat my 3 meals each day and I log everything I eat including what I eat at night. I still seem to have this craving to eat at night. I think it is because I am lonely since I lost my husband I have no one to talk to at night and I am a shy person. I have been trying to go for walks or walk on my treadmill at night so I won't eat. I am 260lbs. and I need to lose weight.View Thread
