I have had such fun putting together an Easter basket for my great-niece. My niece, nephew-in-law, and she just moved here in the last year so it is our first Easter with them. I'm pleased that I'm focused on that and not the candy. I think I'm finally understanding that the candy will be there tomorrow. It does not have to be the focal point of the occasion. emoticon emoticon emoticon

You cannot reach your goal without a plan. It's like trying to reach your destination without a map or directions.

People say God is their co-pilot...fortunately, I know how I drive so I have made Him my pilot. It seems the wiser choice.

I am fighting off the control jelly beans have over me. So far so good have not had one and I am not going to have one!

On my way to my new normal.

Post Easter Post: Nope..I never ate a single piece of candy (nor multiple pieces either!)

Refined sugar is indigestible by the human body so the body stores it as fat!

I decided no Easter candy for me is the healthy choice since I've just dropped below the pre-diabetic marker of 200 for the fasting glucose blood test. I don't want to mess up the progress I've made since last October. But, I was very tempted...it's been hard...but I know it's for the best! Thanks to all for your thoughts...it really helped me stay strong and make the right decision.

Today I ate a black jellybean and a peanut butter egg. I have a peanut butter egg saved just for me to eat tomorrow on Easter, and that is all I will have.

Great message! We have done pretty well cutting sugar out of our meals or snacks.

Remember: When you help someone up a hill, you're a little nearer to the top yourself! That's what I see here, so many willing to help us to the top!

I studied and learned what the body does with refined sugar as well as what the sugar does and doesn't do to the the human body..

So .. No.I won't eat even a piece of it..and I haven't for nearly 2 months since I learned about it before heart surgery in February!

How will you deal with eating or not eating Easter candy this Easter?

- I will stick with my regular meal plan and fit some candy it in

- I will go cold turkey and not eat one piece of candy

- I will limit myself to 1-2 pieces of candy only

- I won't have any Easter candy in the house

- Other ways that help you deal with eating or not eating "Easter Basket Candy"
