Thank you!!!!!!
I had the same problem with my older sister a couple of years ago. She got really depressed over our parents deaths and just started doing nothing all day. I found out(after three months) that taking her to the gym with me helped alot. You have a 1 year old daughter i would suggest taking the candy away(yea i know chocolate is good),Encourage her to eat more health,Show her you can stay away from sweets too, And dont let your other children have candy too, becuase that will make her want it alot more.

Eating any less than three hours before going to bed (sleeping) is very bad for you, as your body slows down during the night. Be right on top of her and find out where she puts the stuff, the trash, when she gets it, where her "stash" is, if she has one, etc. Chack constantly.
I do the same thing atleast once a week were i eat dinner with my gf and then just fall asleep at my house when i get home. I think it has to do what you said slows down, but i found out THROW UP or it becomes worse.
