**Still Day 303**

I told my husband that my plan is to not have any Halloween candy - not one piece!  And, of course, he looked at me like, yea right!!  He was not trying to be mean - he was just be realistic, because, realistically, I, normally, eat about 50 pieces of candy on Halloween!  It's sick, really!  I am a chocolate freak, and if it's in the house, well, I eat it.  So, this year, I'm not buying the candy I'll be handing out to the kids until Monday afternoon because I don't want it in the house any longer than it has to be.  I will be buying candy that contains no chocolate because, for me, if it doesn't have chocolate it's not candy, and I won't have any urge to eat it.  The problems will start when my girls get home with their big bags of candy from trick-or-treating!  There will be chocolate in those bags, and I will want to tear through those bags to look for Twix, Snickers, Hershey's.....anything with chocolate....BUT I won't do it.  I am not going to have one piece of candy this Halloween season!  I don't need it!  Will having one little piece of candy do any real damage?  No.  But stopping at one is very hard for me, so I'm just going to pass on it altogether.  I can do it!

  1. The benefit of being British is that we don't celebrate halloween as crazy as you guys over the pond. We rarely get anyone knock on our door and if we do we just tell them to go away LOL.

    Stay strong, you can do it!
