Dear Halloween Candy

Dear Halloween Candy,


Oh what a weekend we had!  Our time together was special wasn’t it?  I mean, I’ve never indulged so much in at least a year.  Our 3 nights and 2 days together was something I won’t soon forget, but I cannot let it go on any longer.  There is such a thing as “too much of a good thing” and Candy, let me tell you, you are too much of a good thing for me.  While our joy was fleeting, I fear the pounds and inches you left on me won’t soon go away, and that is why I must say “No More!”.  It causes me more pain and anguish than you can possibly imagine to have to do this, but I cannot see you anymore. We must part ways, at least for now dear Candy.  I must be strong and take a stand, because my health would surely suffer if we were to continue our tryst.  I’ve worked too hard and too long to be where I am today and I cannot let a little chocolate and caramel detour me off of my path.  But rest assured, my sweet H.C., that I do still love you and will think fondly of you until we can meet again in only 363 short days.  Until then, stay sweet.


Yours forever,

    LMAO! I had a horrid flashback of my mother rooting through my plastic halloween pumpkin bucket when I was a kid, on Friday night as I was rooting through my son’s pumpkin. They both have so much candy and they’ll never eat it all. Hopefully I won’t either!

    Are you reading my mind?!? I feel Exactly the same way!

    Over at MizFit, she recommended planning to indulge, just for Halloween, and then getting back on track over the weekend…unfortunately, I just read the first part 🙂

    Heh! That was great! I fell prey to the “after Halloween candy sales”…

    Here’s to getting back on track before the next holiday derails me again ^_^

    Very funny, I hate those bite sized chocolate bars. It’s too easy to just sit and eat 10 in one sitting.

    I’m glad to see you broke it off 🙂

    I just broke up with Candy too! First year I’ve had Halloween stockpiles and we only had one trick-or-treater…that equals bad news!
