Great suggestions from Spark friends, thanks so much for helping ....

Saturday, November 03, 2012

We had a huge supply of Halloween candy, and only got 4 kids at the door due to the freezing cold weather ........ minus 8 with a good strong wind, snow on the ground already, SHEESH !!!

As a result, I was left with tons of goodies that I don't want around as they are too tempting. I have been more than very good, I never ate one single thing, and I used to be a chocoholic, so I am extremely proud of myself.

Several of my friends on here suggested I donate to a Food Bank, and that is what I did. I also donated some to the children's ward at our local hospital for the poor little ones that weren't able to have Halloween and are approved to eat the candy (that was a suggestion from a co-worker, thought I'd pass it on for others if they are looking to rid themselves of the 'heavy weight' in the bags)

I feel much better now, and know I made some children happier and not put on a single ounce since I tested my will power and passed the test.

    I live in a condo, so no candy given out here. That helps me, but when I go to family functions, they have a bowl sitting out. I pass it up, most of the time. Great idea to give it away, when the trick or treat night is over and not have it around. When I worked, people always brought it in to work when they had left overs. I remember, pulling out my apple or greek yogurt , when I saw it. nutrition in it, empty wasted......calories...I always tell myself this when ready to buy any at the grocer. Keep up the great job and Keep eating healthy!!

    This is truly an example of helping others helps us more. emoticon for staying away from the temptation of the extra candy. That was a wonderful thing you did. Those are some great ideas to practice.! Perhaps even on an 'average" day. Thank you for sharing! emoticon

    That is such a good idea and I'm so proud of you! We had 3 kids plus the parents, neighbors of ours, so I just had them pick out all they wanted and that way I got rid of alot. I even had the parents to really be greedy! ha! I saw your blog on the side of Temptation Busters and decided to look up your blog! That is so cool of you and you have good, solid discipline! That's a good feeling, isn't it?! You can do it now after accomplishing all that! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Great ideas! I'll have to remember them for next year. I had my boyfriend take our leftoverd to work, I was going to take them to work myself but figured I'd just be tempting myself in a different place!
