    OK. This one is easy and short. It's open to anyone who has kids, is giving out candy or is otherwise going to be around a lot of Halloween candy tonight.

    Today post how many pieces you are going to allow yourself to eat.

    Tomorrow come back and update your post with how many you actually ate.


    My goal is to eat 1! Reese's Peanut Butter cup. That's all I'm going to let myself eat.

    I don't want one because once I start I can't stop. I might smell the chocolate. :drool:

    Apparently, everyone was smarter than I was and stayed away from this one.

    I did limit myself to 1 Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.

    However, I was the one who wound up giving out candy last night, and it was kind of a slow night. I ate probably 5-6 mini Snickers bars. :o

    Congrats! But I notice you didn't post your prediction beforehand. You left yourself an out! Smart move.

    I made it!
    Zero/none/nada candy went past my lips and there was candy everywhere with my son and his friends and about 100 little goblins and ghouls that paraded to the door for their rations.

    Congrats to anyone else that stuck to their guns and avoided or only had a small ration. Good on ya :)

    Oh man... I am horrible.

    Last night
    4-5 mini chocolate bars
    2 chips
    1 cheese puffs
    2 popeye sticks (popeye cigarrettes in the old days)
    red licorice pack
    some marshmallow chocolate thing
    rockets (some kind of sweet candy)

    Today
    couple of chocolate bars
    2 chips

    The worst part is my son is too young to have any of it. I gotta get rid of this stuff. We bought enough for over 200 kids. We only had 175 this year plus the goodies the neighbours gave us when we took the little guy up the street.

    Me and my dad didnt buy candy not to stop ourselves from eating any but out of lazyiness we forgot :P . So when the trick or treaters came we just acted as though we werent home, poor kids. But hey if we bought some i might not have eaten any that night but having it in the house it would of have eventually brought me to my knees and i wouldve ended up eating it all over a period of time
