I purchased one big bag of candy and it was things that I didn't like, so I didn't have to deal with the temptation. What was left I took it to work to share with my co-workers. That problem was solved.

I barely noticed it was Halloween, we don't have kids yet and didn't give out candy (Not even sure if we could have...we live in an apartment building that requires a code to get in the door) That is how I avoided it!

Worked til 7 then out for a healthy dinner. Didn't get home til the kids were off the streets.

My friends and I went to go see a play tonight! It was a great way to get away from the typical Halloween festivities, plus it was a wonderful time :)

no temptation, just indulge on Halloween and get back on the healthy wagon next day.

This year it wasn't a problem. We handed out the candy and sent the leftovers home with someone else.

It's easy for me to ignore it. No Halloween candy in the house, no temptations.

I read the labels - the "Fat" content usually turns me off!!!!

Bought snacks--not candy for the trick-or-treaters. Not that there have been any, too many trees and wires down in the streets still.

Not to linger around the candy dish or cookies that may be floating around at work. No candy here at home.

Resisting candy is fine, but I'm staying away from the break room and all the halloween cakes and cookies emoticon

I don't like sweets much so candy or cookies aren't much of a temptation for me.
We do have a bucket of candy in the house but I don't know where dd put it.
I do plan to make cookies with dd because it is a tradition of ours but I will not be doing any other baking this year.

We don't have kids come to the house this far out in the woods. My hubby has a stash of fun size bars for himself. If I want one, and I can stay within my range for the day, I will have one. :)

Allowing myself a chocolate bar.

So far really good. Hubby bought 3 bags of chocolate candy (Snickers, Three Musketeers, Milky Way) several weeks ago. He's been eating them. So far I have had none. We usually have a handful of trick or treaters and he uses this holiday as an excuse to eat what he shouldn't.

I've been at goal weight 4 years now. Some years I have had moderate chocolate candy at Halloween, but this year I'm at the top of my goal weight range and am trying to avoid it.

No biggie for me, we never get kids in our subdivision. But starting next month when my customers start bringing in goodies, that is when I will have it hard...homemade fudge, cakes, that type of stuff UGH it will be super hard

10/31/12 6:37 A

Not a temptation for me either... I don't like candy... My problem is pork chops, and steaks and buttery mashed potatoes.... Thanksgiving is going to suck!

I bought candy that is not my favorite, so I am eager to give it away. Whatever is left will go to the teachers' lounge at school on Thursday.

Easy -- we give all our Halloween candy to a community pool and let them hand it out

I won't be buying any Halloween candy. I live in the Country so no kids come around.

I let myself eat candy when I want anyways - no deprivation - so I handle it well.

We no longer have kids or grandkids that visit, live out in the boonies, so only a few kids come by for Trick or Treats, so just have candy here that we don't like.

We're not giving out candy this year and I'm ignoring the sweets at work.

I don't open the bags of candy until Hallowe'en evening. At work I look at the ingredients (yuck) and calories, if available, of the offered 'treats'. That's usually enough to turn me off. If ingredients aren't available I extrapolate from past experience.

Wanted to see how everyone is planning on avoiding overeating all the yummy Halloween treats......we've bought a bunch of candy that I don't eat for dietary reasons (I'm vegetarian, so avoid gelatin) but at work there are all KINDS of things I could overindulge in!
