We’re approaching the most difficult time of the year for me. The months of October and November are “sweets” months and if there’s one thing that can easily sabotage my weight loss plans, it’s sweets.
I’ve been pleased with my efforts to curtail the consumption of candy over the course of the last nine months but now the real test begins. Walking down the aisles of Publix, Target, JoAnn’s, and Walgreens bags of candy beg to be added to my shopping cart, but so far so good.
I won’t disappoint the Trick or Treaters this year because I’ve given up candy. Instead, I purchased Air Heads and a bucket of Double Bubble bubble gum. Neither of these will tempt me. I can’t think of any candy I like less than Air Heads, and I can’t stand to be in the company of anyone chewing bubble gum so I think it’s safe to say I’ll avoid the pitfalls of eating the leftover Halloween candy this year.
I’ll just need to make sure my Mom doesn’t drop off her extra treats after Halloween!
