Have you done a sleep study? Maybe sleep apnea?

Though you feel embarrassed, try to be honest in your journal. The journaling can be very helpful when you reflect on the why you eat, when you eat & what you eat head work that will support you changing your relationship with food.

Not sleeping at night is awful. For decades I’d lie awake for hours. Watching the clock & anxiously calculating how many hours I could get in if I went to sleep now before I’d have to get up. Stress at work then menopause meant I developed bad sleeping habits. But losing weight helped a lot. Have gone from getting maybe 5 hours a night (& sometimes a lot less) to averaging 7. Some nights I can even get 8 or 9. Sheer bliss. Have to admit I didn’t eat, but I’d often get up to work (how sad is that), watch tv, read, etc. My mother gets up & eats when she can’t sleep though & I’ve seen her frustration with that habit. She was on that terrible sleeping med for a little while too where you would wake & eat & have no memory of doing so. She’d find empty ice cream containers, or other food wrappers in the kitchen in the morning. Scary! Hope they can sort yours out soon.

All the best.
