    My memory is that AAA actually warned their members about a stretch of 301, and the little town Jon mentioned. There are actually a few of these places. If you drive back roads in Florida you are going to go through one of them for sure.

    Yesterday was a good clean food day. I feel as if I learned a lot about my binge eating disorder this week and am now acting on that knowledge. I have added 5htp back in to my evening supps because I think sleep is one of the keys. I also read an article about binge eating disorders and it all fit me. They suggested that low evening serotonin levels could be a cause of late binges. I'll attach the link to the article here for anyone who is interested.

    I am grateful that it was a snowday and I didn't lose a personal day to go to court for an hour.

    If low evening serotonin levels are part of it (makes sense, since I think you primarily begin a binge in the evening?), you might benefit from taking 5-HTP in the late afternoon. "The Mood Cure" always recommends splitting up the dose, if possible (if it's not just 50mg or something fairly low), but says you can start as early as mid-afternoon (I imagine that's around 3PM) and take the rest of the dose with dinner. If it makes you sleepy, you can take it later. I take mine around dinner time and 60-90 min before bed.

    I am currently going with 50 at dinner. I was taking 100 a while back, but sometimes had symptoms of too much serotonin. and Yes, I am an evening binger, usually between 7-10pm so I hope it will help.

    I have also moved my mag to the same time. Taking either too late can be a problem for me.

    Just stopping in say 'hi'. Hope you have a fantastic day. (I almost wrote TGIF, but I'm getting ahead of myself here).

    Hi Paula. Very interested in the 5HTP discussion as I have been rather pissy for about a month. Could be seasonal affective disorder, but I think it's mostly lack of quality sleep. Thanks for sharing your experience.

    Jenn - I have tried 5htp before, but I am not sure if it helps or not. The thing is that I have always been taking a ton of other supps and not been consistent with it. This time I am starting at the lowest dose, only taking it with magnesium and taking it at dinner rather than too close to bedtime. I'll keep reporting in. I wear the GoWearFit device which actually shows me my sleep pattern. I hope to see longer periods of uninterrupted sleep with fewer awake periods overall.

    I wanted to get a fitbit but now I see that it's worn on the shirt? Odd. I'm looking at a GoWearFit device now. Which one do you have? I'm thinking of getting the core, but the pages aren't loading for me. *sigh*

    A bodybugg would be cool too, but I think it's much bigger and bulkier than the GoWearFit.

    Ok. I want one. Watching them on eBay. Might start squirrelling away my $25 a week allowance for one. Or I could just ask Brad.
