just an afterthought

Just wanted to share a HUGE accomplishment.  We took the kidlets trick-or-treating on Halloween night last week and got about 8 lbs of candy.  We only went to 2 trunk-or-treats and a couple neighborhoods, but often the kids were the first and only trick-or-treaters, so they were rewarded with GINORMOUS handfuls of candy. 
I threw about a pound of it away after inspecting all the loot.  I was impressed with myself because even after sorting and rooting around 500+ pieces of candy, I didn't have a single piece!


The candy is NOT hidden.  The candy is very accessible and I could easily eat behind closed doors, but I don't.  I don't think about what I'm missing out on.  I'm not thinking about what it would taste like.  I'm thinking that if I did have a piece, I don't know if I could stop at just ONE.  As I chose not to have one, it's gotten a lot easier to look past the short-term satisfaction and looking forward to the long-term goal.  I never thought that I'd be the one to say no to chocolate and be OKAY with it.  I have given away some of it, thrown away some and the kids have some now and then.  Now the candy and chocolate is an after-thought.  If even that!

I'm getting used to politely telling my uber-sugar tooth, "No thank you." And I don't mourn it.  I don't mind.  I'm getting USED to it!
