I loved reading this thread. I loved Nells post too. I didn't have any problem because we were out of town the whole weekend. I gave the grandkids some candy, and I didn't have any at my house. I hope everyone has gotten rid of all the left over candy. As Dot always says emoticon take it one day at a time.

Nell, I loved your post! LOL

No one in China would die if I did that (if I also had a garbage disposal), but my family would sure make it seem like someone is dying if I did.

My strategy isn't working too well right now - trying to ignore it all. My little ones decided that Mommy NEEDED to have some of their mints. What generous souls they are. I love them! I'll get better at ignoring it though - at least TOM was this past week, so the chocolate won't call me quite as much.

I don't have them here as I am not home. However, s.o. has decided to do Halloween this year. I am at his house a gret deal, but I really don't have much desire at this point to have any. However, I know that he needs to learn healthier habits so perhaps by trying to set an example so, to speak, I can keep myself away. Otherwise, if the worst happens, they are portion controlled so I will also need to be in control. Thanks for the link. I like
these suggestions.
Have a Happy and Healthy Halloween!

Love your posts!
I agree with you. My garbage disposal accepts "junk" foods happily!
And it does cost much more to lose those pounds than the cost of the leftover candy!

We don't have leftover candy because I make sure I give it all. The teenagers are the best "customers" to finish off the candy.

I do have some Halloween candy in my apartment. I usually don't get that many kids. I have my WW Meeting in the morning and we take all left over candy there and they ship it on to our troops. I will for sure get rid of mine first thing in the morning.

You are allowed to put leftover Halloween candy into a sink of water, then rip them open and let them go down the disposal. No one in China will die. Your co-workers don't need it, your fellow church members don't need it. You don't need to keep it around while you figure out who should get it. It's just candy. You will not have wasted any money. It is far more wasted on your hips than down the disposal.

Brew a nice pot of decaf, turn off the outdoor lights at 8, and have your own Candy Disposal Party. Then go to bed with a smile, knowing that nothing will be calling you from the cupboard.

Tomorrow you will feel like a million dollars!
