Having Halloween treats around does bother me some. I don't usually bake anything unless I know I will be taking it somewhere for someone. When I buy candy, I usually put it in the freezer. That way it is out of sight, and when I do get a "craving" for it, I just grab a piece or two, and it takes longer to eat. It helps me. I don't buy a lot, and if I buy extra, I leave some over at my friends' apt, and he lives in the same building, so it makes it handy for me to just get a small amount when I want some.

    emoticon as they say, out of sight out of mind! If you don't see those candies, they can't tempt you!

    I give out granola bars now. Technically they are no better than candy, but their parents are happier and they tempt me not.

I am used to internet discussions where the last post is at the BOTTOM. I forgot that the last post goes to the TOP on Spark.
When I did not see my post at the bottom, I assumed that it did not get printed and kept trying to post it again.

I was very tired when it happened so the moral of the story is to go to bed when you are tired and not stay on the computer.

    I like your ideas for controlling sugar. Pretty soon you will lose the desire for sugar. emoticon

I refuse to give kids candy. I give out crayons or dimes for Halloween.

    I am not ready for control over sugar yet. You have great ideas. You could do like me and move next door to a cemetary. I never get trick or treaters. emoticon

    I never thought about freezing candy! I'll have to try that the next time I break down and buy Reese's Miniatures!
Thanks for the idea.

    I like your plan. What I found that works too is frozen fruit! I buy at Publix Supermarket. It is crunchy and sweet, and helps me stay out of trouble. Keep up the great work!! emoticon
