Are you tempted with Halloween treats? How do you overcome?
Yes, I get tempted with Halloween treats.
How I overcome is when the kids bring candy back from trick or treating I still end up eating a couple of pieces, but then the candy is put away. The kids will get a piece a day or so, maybe even 2. I also don't hand out candy in the neighborhood that I live since I am out in the boondocks. When I would hand out candy I usually bought candy that I didn't care for, or I handed out popcorn, gummy snacks, pencils and other small novelties.
I have to say the kids still had candy in the house from a parade over the summer and even had Christmas, Easter and last Halloween candy. I threw a bunch away and the other thing we do with the candy is take it to my DH work and he puts it in the bowl for when people come in.
