We don't celebrate Halloween so I am golden in that area.

I was very good. No candy whatsoever for me.

Ugh, it was the Reese's that got me! I had a few packs of Reese's Pieces and a few mini white chocolate cups.

Not a piece though was tempted by the Reese's.

I did, I picked out a couple pieces of what I really liked and stopped there.

I sat there for two hours with that candy bowl in my lap and kept telling myself that I could eat the pieces that I set aside. And it worked. Otherwise I would have been draining the candy bowl

I kept it in moderation (4 or 5 mini candies). Luckily my kiddos decided they wanted to pass out their own candy once they got home and all the teenagers took all the good stuff. :P

11/1/13 1:03 P

I had two little packages of Whoppers (there were 3 whoppers in each package) and a fun size cookies and cream hershey's bar (those are so good!). Whoppers aren't as awesome as I used to think they were!!!

11/1/13 11:35 A

2 little packages of Sixlets with about 8 pieces in each package. They weren't as good as they used to be when I was a kid.

We get a lot of trick or treaters... around 100 or so. I buy stuff the kids like (Air Heads, Laffy Taffy, Jolly Ranchers) that I won't eat because it might pull the crowns off my teeth. Hand it out til it's all gone and then I'm done. I don't eat any of it. Frankly, I don't miss it.

We live on a cul-de-sac with no kids, so we've never gotten any trick-or-treaters. At work, however, the candy was everywhere.

I allowed myself 2-3 bite-sized midnight Milky Ways each day for two days. So yes, I indulged in a small, portion-controlled, moderate amount.

This is a GOOD thing for me as it's not always been the case.

a little, but not enough to mess me up. I stayed well within my calorie range for the day. emoticon

yes, but a very limited amount, some milk duds and some twizzzlers, and that was it. Pretty proud of myself that I did not go overboard.

Shock and awe - no! Not one mini kit kat bar passed my lips, not one rocket, not one tootsie roll, not a single one.

What I am surprised at is how little emotion I feel about halloween candy this year, how little I care. This is the first year that we haven't bought the Jumbo Box o' Assorted Treats 2 weeks before the actual day.... kept them out of the house and consequently forgot to think about them - out of sight, out of mind, the truth of that saying hit home as I realized that "doing without halloween treats didn't even hurt!"

No, I bought little packets of mini gingerbread men and chocolate coated animals. (not real animals, biscuit ones.) But no children came. So I may not have indulged yesterday but today I've had a little pack of mini gingerbread men. 115 cals

No, none! I live in a big building and there is no trick-or-treating here, so there is no reason for me to buy any. I expect some candy in the work kitchen today though... I tend to like higher-quality chocolate, so hopefully that will keep my hands out of the candy jar!

Just curious...handed out candy to the kids in the neighborhood but didn't partake. I would have if I had wanted to and tracked it but I just wasn't craving it so I didn't. Sent some of the left over candy with my daughter to her work just now and already been to the post office this morning and mailed the rest to my son at college.

So, was just wondering how you handled it!
