We don't pass out candy. But, I did great with my kids' candy. I am past the chocolate temptation phase.

Not well, although at the end of the night I was getting the kids to hand out 5 or 6 mini chocolate bars to each child. Get rid of it, or I will eat it! So, that was a good choice, but I have been nibbling out of their stash. That is over as of today though.

Get healthy and stay that way!

I would like to start training to walk 5K again, try to get my time under 62 minutes this time.

I am 5 feet 5 inches tall.

I bought candy I am not a big fan of. My son ended up handing it all out. My daughter didn't go too far so she didn't get much. I'm not feeling the need or desire to eat it.

Our trick or treating was delayed 'til tonight, because of "Sandy the Storm": I had planned well-no candy giving since I jut can't be around it. My dear mother, of course, bought candy a few days ago, but was kind enough to put it out of sight:I don't have a clue where it is! For that candy exravaganza tonight I will be volunteering at the hospital-Phew! My struggle will be that I get free food in the cafeteria: Friday nights are always fish!! I can get that, which is always delicious..if fried-the salad bar..the biggest struggle? All that candy in the gift shop with me! Can't wait to see just how well we all do with this junky holiday...

I failed a little but, but it could have been worse. My company put huge bowls of candy around at work, so when afternoon hit and something stressful happened, I grabbed a piece... then went back for more.... it was so much harder to resist once I had had one! We haven't handed candy out yet, it got postponed until Saturday because of the Hurricane. I think I'll just buy candy that I know I don't like, haha.

I am the master of my fate.
I am the captain of my soul.

I did pretty good, I managed to eat my regular lunch at work. I did have 3 pieces at work during the day but didn't have any at night. We have left overs but I've been letting my husband eat them, although he's not so helpful he keeps offering things to me.

I was great on Halloween, but succumbed yesterday!

I'm ok with it, though. I had WAY fewer pieces of candy than I would have usually, and I ate only the ones that I really liked (my father had bought assorted bags). And I went over my calories, but still ended up about neutral for the day in terms of calories eaten vs. calories expended.

I'm counting that as a victory!

I did pass out candy and have TONS of leftovers. I have not eaten any though and really don't feel tempted. WHat got me yesterday was fast food to try and get home quickly and get busy with trick-or-treating with my little girl. I over ate but not by much. I also felt horribe afterward, so I am not motivated to keep eating that way. Congrats on being successful as well.

made the decision this year not to pass out candy and instead focused on taking my daughter trick or treating instead. this way there are NO leftovers to tempt me AND I got the benefit of walking quite a few miles with DD. I have eaten just a tiny bit of cand (3 pieces at work) and honestly I'm ok with that. my nutrition has been seriously lacking (but I'm trying to get it normalized) and I know that the few pieces of candy I ate are not going to undo me.

I feel like I was quite successful this year! the holiday was fun (was in costume ALL day) and I didn't feel compelled to eat crazy amounts of crap.

any others successful? big or small successes? let's focus on what we DID right!!
