There are two big "Candy Seasons" in the grocery market: Easter & Halloween.
There two things I have a really hard time NOT buying: 1)lots of books at the book store & 2)lots of candy at the supermarket.
I bought some Easter Candy and have been going back and forth between eating candy and feeling guilty and exercising my butt off. LOL
I don't feel as bad about it as I used to. I figure that in the scheme of things if I can just force myself to keep exercising the diet thing tends to follow for me.
I've been fluctuating between 3 to 4 lbs, depending upon hormones & cheating upon my diet with candy. But, it ISN'T completely out of control like it used to be so I don't beat myself up about it as much.
When I first started this journey a year ago I denied myself any of the sweet treats that I loved and I did really well kick starting things with that mentality. However, now that I am trying to continue with the program I've realized I have to give in to the sweets sometimes or I'll go WAY in the other direction.
This is never going to be a natural/automatic thing for me. I love candy & processed foods too much.
To bad you cannot substitute candy for fruit rather than vice-versa. Ha ha.
As always, keeping on, keeping on...
