3 Reasons Kids love Halloween:

1. Candy
2. Caramel Apples
3. Parties with tons of food

3 Reasons Feather hates Halloween:
1. I eat the Candy
2. I eat the Caramel Apples
3. I attend the parties and eat tons of food.

Why is it that in the summer I was so aware of what food I was putting into my mouth, but as soon as October is here and I guess I know I will be wearing sweaters and layers so I subconsciously think it's ok to scarf down 5,482 Halloween colored M&M's...Why did I even buy them in the first place??? I think I have eaten 2 lbs of candy in the last 2 days...no wonder Halloween is of the devil...the overwhelming candy aisles with all the "Fun Packs" (which is a total deception within itself...because you think, oh, this little package of candy won't hurt...but you eat 10 of them) hypnotize you as soon as you walk into the store...lead you to the candy then thoughts get into your head thinking you "need" this stuff...aaarrrgghhh...Plus...they put the candy out in like August...Great, I have 3 more weeks of being attacked by the candy devil...I shall do my best to stand my ground...so please don't entice me by asking me if I would like one of your snack size snickers...because I would like one...I just know I don't need one...because honestly, I probably have eaten a whole bag at home for my dinner, not a snack...ok...I can and will make it through these next 3 weeks without gaining 954 lbs!

I'm not a Halloween hater...I love to wear costumes and dress up...I just hate the way I seem to have little to no self control when it comes to the sweets...I'm not the only one am I?

5 remarks:

From about Oct 1 through Jan 1, it's feeding season. Between football Sunday, Halloween, and all the various other sorta, pseudo and sundry holidays -- there is no shortage of food and reasons to eat. I have three bags of Halloween candy that scream "Eat me!" everytime I walk by the hall closet. I should never buy candy until Oct 30.

i so know what you mean... the kids get candy, i put it away so they don't rot their teeth, but then i feel guilty, there are kids across the world who have never had the chance to taste candy, so how can i bring myself to throwing it away... then i end up eating it...all and needing to find my workout videos!!!

I have to admit, I'm the same way. I love Halloween and seeing all the kids dressed up, but damn that candy gets me everytime. And we don't even get trick-or-treaters at our house, still buy that dumb candy though!!! UGH!!!
