I don't buy any Easter candy, but get plenty of it from family. I make my hubby take it to work so it's not in the house.

I must confess to having a hard time with the candy this year as well! 3 years on maintenance, but I think my stress level at work is so high, that my resistance to the onslaught is down. I know all the tricks of the trade, so to speak, and so I don't buy it, get it out of the house, try to avoid the "high chocolate traffic areas" at work, but when a co-worker gave me a bowl full of those malted milk eggs, it was all over! 2 days of chowing on those left me feeling quite ill, so that was the end of it, and now the rest will go "away" when I get back to work!

highest weight ever:202, SP starting weight: 143

New goal: more practical new goal, 129, update ticker to reflect that goal.

I love Easter baskets and candies! I'm doing good this year. It really helps to allow a small amount of what you like every so often. I too work in a bit of chocolate everyday. I put a lot of thought into the choice though and carefully look at size, calories and satisfaction potential. Hehe. It's easier for me to resist temptation when I know I've had my sweet tooth fix that day.

I'm with MONGO2SIX all the way about really relishing what you're indulging in! If you're really tempted and are going to treat yourself make sure the quality is good and really enjoy it in a small amount. It's when you're eating junk just to eat junk and binge that is bad behavior. Hang in there!

It's a bit difficult for me as well. It sure tests my what is a treat and what is a habit plan. For me, if I have it, it's dark which I prefer, and I enjoy it with no guilt attached. Then I do an extra walk or something to balance it.

I find if I don't start eating chocolate, I don't crave it... I can leave it totally alone, but if I eat even one little chocolate egg... all bets are off!!

My protein bars have chocolate, so I do get a fix in every week or so...

I worked one small package of Cadbury Mini Eggs into my day yesterday. It's not something I can get any other time of year and I relished every bite!

I have a small amount of dark chocolate EVERY day...built it into my daily calories. Milk chocolate (without the antioxidant and MUFA properties) has no appeal, just empty calories.

You probably have it in the house for the children, but I would keep it out of sight and out of easy reach, both for them and myself. Good time to teach them how to eat sweets in moderation and for you to be a model for choosing healthy food.

I hear that! I have had several chocolate eggs this week. Gotta get a hold on that!

I am finding it very difficult to avoid all the temptations that around at this time of year. How's everyone else handling it?
