Yes! Especially if it's been a rough day or there were problems with him falling asleep. I come downstairs and go straight to find some cookies or something. The only thing that's helped is being aware of the problem and being aware when I start heading to the food and forcing myself to stop and get water instead. The more times you can force yourself to stop, the easier it is in the future. It's hard, but you can do it! It is worth it. You can also distract yourself with cleaning the kitchen or something else as well (go brush your teeth, etc) or get a short work out in to help relieve stress and distract yourself long enough to stop the habit of eating at that time. You can rewire your brain/habits pretty quickly - just keep trying! Stay aware of what you are doing (easier said than done, but it is doable!) You can do it!! I used to do it every night and now I rarely do :)

Guilty as charged! Sometimes the only time I can stop myself from ruining a good calorie day is to drink hot tea instead

My kids are older 21, 19 and 15, so they are up way past me. At least 2 of them anyways. I am not a night time snacker. My problem time is around 4:30-5:00. I think I need to start eating my lunch later so maybe I wont be tempted to snack at that time. Are you eating enough at dinner time to keep you full enough? Also what time do you eat dinner?
