W43, Day 5: Oh those holidays...

Halloween is just around the corner and you know what that means:  kids in costumes, cute ghosts and goblins, and yes, that dang candy.  I'll admit to you that after I bought our Halloween candy for the big day tomorrow, I had my husband hide it from me.  I do not want to be tempted by that bag of candy.  It'd be fine if I could control myself to just take one small piece of candy and leave the rest alone...but let's just be honest, that's not going to happen.  The holidays are always difficult on a food level because we tend to celebrate with food.  It's just not the holidays without eating, right?

Instead of a slippery slope, it's more like a raging waterfall.  Every time I've hit the holidays, I've had major weight gain even though I've been on Weight Watchers and had every motivation to do well.  Three years ago  when I was desperate to look good for our wedding, I still gained ten pounds over the months of November and December.  I'm bound and determined to do better this year.  But how?  Sheer will power doesn't seem to be enough because it erodes away.  More posts on this topic are bound to follow.  But in the meantime, I think I've navigated Halloween pretty well (plus or minus a few fun size kit kat bars).

As a reward to myself for doing so well, I bought myself some new tops.  A lot of my shirts are baggy and I wanted some that show off my more curvy and sexy self.  I've still got a long, long ways to go, but I want to show off the progress I have made too.  Besides, shopping is a lot more fun when you know things fit.  :)


  1. It's so nice to read this post today. I am having an awful time this year with Halloween. I would have my husband hide our candy, but our house is so small and there are only a couple of places it could be. I would definitely just find it in a moment of weakness.

  2. Oh and good for you for abstaining! I should have promised myself some clothes too!
