I wait until the last minute to buy treats so they are not in the house to tempt us too long. I then keep the bowl of goodies on top of the scales so I am reminded of my goals and do not dip into those dastardly dangerous fun sized bars. Have fun be safe.

With Halloween coming up, I wanted to avoid the temptation of a bowl full of delicious chocolate staring me in the face all night so I decided to buy candy I don't like. For instance, I hate coconut, nothing, not even smothering it in chocolate would get me to eat it, so naturally Mounds or Almond Joy would be a perfect choice for Halloween treats this year.
This concept also works if someone in the house has a sweet tooth. My husband bought a dessert (with coconut in it) and it sat in the fridge for almost two weeks. No temptation at all!
