Halloween Candy...UGH!!!

Hi, my name is Janie and I am a sugar addict!!!  Candy has always been my weakness.  I would rather eat a bag of Starburst Jelly Beans for dinner than a steak.  So after months and months of trying to cut candy out of my everyday diet I had succeed...then came Halloween!  I am so close to my goal weight, I really thought I would be able to stay focused.  I had a plan, I would pick out a few of my favorites from the kids candy and put them in a bag and when it was gone, whether it was 1 day or 10 days, I would be done.  Well, that has NOT worked out so well.  I really don't want all of my hard work going to waste.  I am still running, so at least I am not gaining weight from it, but I could be losing!  At this point I need to come up with an idea to get it out of my house and not into my stomach.  I feel like getting rid of it is depriving my kids, but I don't want them to have the same addiction.  This morning Gavin climbed in bed with me at 7am and I could smell Reese's on his breath, and I realized he is already a sugar addict too.  Help...give me ideas to get rid of the candy that won't make the kids too upset!


  1. some dentists offer target gift certs. or buy the candy by the lb from the kids... Maybe send it to soldiers... Or take it to a hospital and donate it ... I am having a hard time keeping my hands out of it too !

  2. Those are great ideas Chandra! I think I will talk to them about donating or sending some. I don't recall our dentist buying candy. I did much better today than yesterday!

  3. Just found this blog! LOVE IT! I also love sugar. Especially chocolate. I have to have a little (or a lot) everyday!
