Week 1 Results!

Hi everyone! The reason I'm posting results late... (I know, I always have an excuse huh?) is that I was really tempted to change my mind and join this round. I weigh myself all the time, so I would just have to stick my numbers into the spreadsheet and I'd be an official member! I gained a couple of pounds the last couple of weeks and I'm thinking that I need the motivation of competing with you guys. BUT, I did finally decide to stick with my original decision to wait until I'm out of school. :( Sad huh? Next round...

Ok, so here are your results:

Awesome, Gayla! Way to start it off!
Ok, guys, while I'm not competing, I'm still in this with you. So, somehow we have GOT to be good about the halloween thing!

Option 1: (this is the best option) do not give in!!!
Option 2: give in, but control yourself and have 1 piece of candy a day.
Option 3: give in and eat everything you can eat in one day and then be more after that.
Option 4: eat everything you want for like 2 weeks until the candy is gone. (please don't really do this one!)

What do you guys think is the best option? I mean, obviously number 1 is the way to go. Those of you who can do that are going to win this week. That's obvious. If you know yourself, and you know you can't withstand, then out of option 2 and 3, which is better? I'm not sure. Nobody better do 4 or I'll kick you out! Each of these options would pair well with "Workout extra to compensate for eating candy." Maybe that would be a fifth option.

Also, I know there are dentist/orthodontics offices that will sometimes pay you per pound of candy and then they give the candy to the troops and stuff. If you can find something like that, you'll get the candy out of the house and the kids will be happy to have a little spending money. Anyway, I'm just curious how you guys are going to be good in the face of this chocolate madness! I'm leaning toward number 2...

Until next week,

I posted results! I thought I'd leave a comment because I know you get those emails immediately and the feedburner emails are delayed. So go check out the winner!

Congratulations, Gayla! I have been a real slacker... just barely maintaining.... so here goes! The competition has begun! Yeah... I know... Carrie doesn't believe me.

I have done really bad today, and yesterday with the halloween candy. Once I started, I just kept going. I already know that if I have it in the house I can't control myself. I am going to let my kids have a day of totally pigging out, and then the candy is going in the garbage. Then I won't be tempted and the kids won't be sneaking it, or getting sick eating so much. One year, our dogs actually got a hold of the candy when we were at church, and ate it all. Problem solved!!

okay, usually I would go with option #1 (I have the last few years) but ever since I got pregnant last year I have been having weird cravings...and even though I had the baby 3 1/2 months ago, I am still having trouble controlling myself. hmmm :)
Well, I went with option #3 and ate all the Halloween candy I could on the drive home from my mom's house after trick or treating. I was planning on just eating a few (It has been quite a few years since I have eaten actual candy) but all my kids feel asleep in the car and I was enjoying the peace and quiet and I got a little carried away. So I decided to just eat a bunch and be done with it. (I can't believe I am admitting to this) :) Anyways... Good for anyone who didn't give in!!
