Candy has been the topic at hand.
I know it’s because of Halloween and I know that I’ve even blogged about it already. What I find interesting is the different ways people have handled this holiday.
Some binged the night of Halloween and regretted it later, some didn’t binge that exact evening but have since eaten a few too many pieces and others have been able to stay away from the candy or eat it in small, manageable portions.
I fell in the middle group. I enjoyed a few treats Halloween night, but I didn’t binge and let myself go. However, since then I’ve had a few pieces every day.
Well, I feel that a few snack-sized candies every day is a few too many for me to continue down the scale in my weight loss journey. So, today I decided “No more.” and I haven’t had a piece of candy all day.
Lori (a weightloss success story by the way) commented on my post from yesterday that maybe I should get rid of all the candy in my house. I personally don’t want to get rid of all my kids’ candy when they aren’t battling weight issues. They are allowed 1-2 pieces a day and it’s stored in the pantry in bags labeled with their names. This works well for us, so I’m going to leave it that way. The kids shared a few pieces with me, I enjoyed them, but now on to getting this weight off.
In working towards losing more weight I will control the candy instead of letting it control me. It may be in my house, but that doesn’t mean it has to be in my mouth.
