Leftover Candy....???



Recommended Posts

Alright, Halloween has come and gone. Throw that evil stuff out, or give it away to somewhere, anywhere. We don't need it. Be strong now.

Focus on the Protein, the veggies, and fruit!!!

I am so proud of myself, I have not touched a single piece of that Halloween candy!! It's all here on my desk, and everyone else is eating it..and I am laughing at each one.

I have this awesome bowl that yells at you when you take the candy. It tells you candy is no good for you, that it will rot your teeth. You can't have it..and it screams at you that it will bite your fingers off.

I love watching them all jump and then take two just to hear it go off again! I look at it this way I'm losing calories by laughing it up, I'll keep feeding 'em :)

At my last LB support meeting this topic was discussed and there are actually some great things you can do w/ the candy, in lieu of throwing it out: Send extra candy to a charity:

ii. Operation Shoebox – Donate to the Troops http://operationshoebox.com/

iii. Operation Gratitude http://www.operationgratitude.com/

iv. Some schools and food pantries also accept these items

I love all of the suggestions.. I am lucky because we live so far out in the woods no kids come to our house for Halloween.. my grandkids go into town to trick or treat.. so I don't have any candy in the house.. but I will say even if I did I think my band helps me make good decisions and keeps me focused on healthier options...

That's awesome! And I have heard you can donate candy to places. I think that's great!!! Keep up the good work.

Now I'm getting back on the treadmill!!!

Too late (snicker)

Unfortunately with 3 kiddos, throw away is not an option. They'd literally hang me by my toes. However, I believe in moderation and allow myself 1-2 pieces..and fortunately that curtails any sweet tooth cravings :)

I have two kids and a husband that would kill me if I gave away their candy! So it's sitting there on the kitchen counter just tempting me. Last night I gave in. I wish I could say I only ate 2 or 3 pieces, but I can't. So today I am trying something new. I put a bottle of mouthwash right on top of the bowl. Now hopefully if I reach for the candy, I rinse my mouth out instead. Who wants to eat after they use mouthwash??? Not me!!

This is my first Halloween not eating ANY candy. It was so easy. I can't believe it. Why didn't I do it years ago!?!

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
