👻Halloween🎃 is right around the corner and this can be a stressful time for anyone trying to lose weight. All that candy 🍫lying around who wouldn’t be tempted !!! I totally get it. !!!
💥if you are handing out candy, buy the kinds you don’t like. I personally hate Rockets and Suckers so those are the only things I buy.
💥out of sight out of mind. Clear out a cupboard and store the kids loot in there so that you don’t see it. Put a post it on the inside of the door with your goal written on it to remind you of what you are working towards!
💥Don’t eat candy for the wrong reasons. Remember, you aren’t eating the gummy bears for their vitamins or minerals (there are none), fiber (none again) or health benefits (nada, nil, zilch). You’re eating your treats for their taste and the pleasure of indulging. So choose the indulgence you actually want, not the one you think you should want, and don’t give candy a hierarchy.
💥Give yourself rules that work for you, and stick to them. First, you need to think what has NOT worked for you in the past when you’ve tried to lose or maintain weight during Halloween, then, come up with what you will do differently this time. Different people need different rules, so there’s no right or wrong here. You need to listen to your body and be honest with yourself about your habits, strengths, and challenges.
💥Eat your Halloween sweets in an empowered manner. Sit down. Enjoy your treat so that it is mindful, conscious, and satisfying, rather than when you’re distracted by goblins and ghosts. Take the time to savor its deliciousness.
