You guys,
 
I do this almost every year.  Last year I was smart and bought stuff that I didn't really like.  But this year I bought kittkatt and twix bars.  What a dummy I am.  Now I have to go out and get more.
 
I was just curious if anybody does that too.  I know it isn't good to do, the sugar will effect my mood and my weight and I have been walking so much lately to get my weight down.
 
So please let me know that I am not the only one.
 
hugs, Karen

Nope, you're sure not alone. I have been managing to gobble a large chocolate bare veryday for a couple of years. If I hadn't, I'd probably be forty pounds lighter. It has to do with the levels of serotonin, on hand. The chocolate and sugar produce serotonin.

Ahah,

Thanks for the response Tyno.

I cannot keep chocolate in my house.  I have bought so many bags of candy bars already and between my kids and husband they have completely empty me out.  I only eat the dark chocolate M&M's (although I really want to stuff my face with the others, I LOVE CHOCOLATE).  I do have a bowl full of other candy for the trick or treaters.  Candy the kids won't eat turn .

I've done that so many times, I can't even count...bought the candy and then ate it and had to go out and buy more. This year, I bought juice boxes. Probably a little healthier for the kids and maybe they will look forward to something to drink to wash down all the candy???!!!??? At least I can stay away from them. Hopefully, the kids won't be disappointed. I have a friend that told me she does this every year and the kids in her neighborhood look forward to getting them...hope it's the same here...

Oh man, can I relate!! I used to just buy it to have for my kids, since we live too far out for trick-or-treaters, and the kids wouldn't always go out. Every dang year I would eat the first round of it!! I'm so glad the kids are at college now, and I don't have to buy any!
I would love for people to give out healthy stuff, but can you imagine the look on their faces, when they'd receive an apple or whole grain crackers?? haha How about toothbrushes?? hahaha
I'm old enough to remember getting apples and home-made popcorn balls while trick-or-treating, and we were happy with most of it.
I think its very dangerous to begin the Fall/Winter season with events like Halloween. I think we all get hungrier naturally in Fall, to stock up on our insulation and reserves for winter. But once we taste that sweet stuff...........its hard to ever stop!! And even if you get yourself under control after Halloween......there's Christmas coming!! Be brave everyone. Be brave. ;)

Karen, you are not alone!

The Twix are my downfall too- and had to go out and buy more. Youngest son devours them too. (and his friends)

Cathy- That's so true about getting started at Halloween because just around the corner comes all the Holiday goodies, and more goodies and more goodies......

I thought about the upcoming holidays. At this rate I will be three hundred pounds by the end of the year.

The juice boxes sounds like a good idea. Never thought of that.

I am glad that I am not the only one. Now I don't feel so bad. Oh and I love dark chocolate too. That is why I use to buy the Hersheys miniatures, to eat the dark ones.

So off I go shopping again for more stuff. I found last years candy in one of my coat pockets. Smarties and starburst, I didn't get chocolate last year. I should have known better this year.

Hugs, Karen

I learned a long time ago to wait til the 30th to buy candy. We have had so few trick or treaters since we have lived here that I'm not even doing it this year. We probably didn't have two or three last year. There are so many private parties around here at churches and boys and girls clubs they don't go out. Plus we live right on the edge of town so I think that makes a difference.
 
My youngest son doesn't get the kids this year cause he had them last year so I won't get a picture of them in their costumes for the first time.
 
We will be celebrating our anniversary that night which we haven't been able to do for many years.
 
luv and hugs

I guess I'm the only one that never eats the candy I buy for Halloween trick-or-treaters.  I bought M&M with Peanuts to give out and I have them safely tucked away.
 
BUT, I have bought Baby Ruth, Butterfingers, a large bag of M&M with Peanuts, and Twizzlers for my daughter and me to woof down!  tongue (Had you fooled, didn't I?)  yeah

You sure did Sherrine, I really thought you had more control. LOL...

Marlee,

I forgot that your anniversary was on Halloween. So Cool!

It has been a year now that I have been on the forum. I love it! It is like having my own secret world. My own secret friends. Kind of neat when you think about it. Does anybody else feel that way?

Hugs, Karen

It is cool to be here a year. I forgot your anniversary was Halloween, too, Marlee. I never buy candy until the day before and I still usually end up eating 1/4-1/2 of a bag before the kids get here. I have no willpower about candy. Diane

I wanted to share my kids favorite halloween goody.  We always trick or treat in the same neighborhood and there is a dentist that gives out toothbrushes and my kids just love it.  Every year they run there first and get so excited to see what color they get.  Of course, they do like the jumbo size candy bars that my sister in-law gives them to.  When they get home, they pig out on candy and then go brush their teeth with their new brushes.  Funny kids tongue .

Karebear the year has gone fast hasn't it??? I haven't looked back at the post I first wrote. I'm sure they were pretty pathetic, I wasn't in a good place. cry
 
Yes, I will be snuggling up with Ken thanking God for all the wonderful years we have had together and be praying for many, many more. We decided to wait til the last of Jan or first of Feb to go somewhere warm to celebrate. With all that is going on I think that was a wise decision.
 
You really thought Sherrine had self control, hehehe. devil You got to be kidding.
 
luv and hugs
