Bare Bones About Halloween

Definition of Halloween as it relates to the start of the Binge eating season:

Halloween is a poor maligned holiday, abused as the excuse to eat sugar laden foods starting with the first Hershey miniature. Characterized by closing your eyes while you relish that first bite of chocolate and then opening them again 62 days later/20 pounds heavier and unable to understand how you let it happen again. See also Christmas Coma. 

I don't know what your plan is for this day. Mine is to remain food sober. I am seeking my happiness in sharing the day with others and enjoying some non-sugar related treats such as holiday decorating and making a sugar free pumpkin custard that is out of the world-scary good. 

Before I leave you with my wishes for a happy and peaceful Halloween, I invite you to look at these photos my husband took while I was exercising this week. I am beginning to think I might have a warped view of my own body fat and perhaps I need to cut back on my exercise plan. What do you think?  

Come to think of it, I think I look good! 
Happy Halloween everyone!

Lol!!! Love the skeleton. It's dark at my house on this Halloween. First time ever. A chance to do something else and no real urge to buy a bag of candy or contribute to the candy stream.

Joining you in food sobriety this holiday season. KarenP

When I finished planning my food for today I realized I did not plan to have the pumpkin custard after all. Rather than change the plan, I decided not to have it today. I can have it any day, it does not have to be today and it will still be Halloween without it. I love living inside my food plan today.

Hi Jane,
I made my goal weight in September and now am working through maintenance. Boy, is it scary! I'm so glad to find your blog. I will be reading up and looking forward to getting to know you.
