Don’t let Halloween scare you!
There is ZERO motivation to binge on candy with your thin mentality intact.
I used to be so “good” and not have one bite. My willpower so “strong.” Until I broke and shoved down ten at once.
Did I enjoy that? No. Even while I was eating them I was bummed out thinking about how I was going to have to starve myself the next day… or not.
Now, the big bowl of candy is no big deal. It is just a bunch of candy. When I get hungry, if I want some, I give myself full “permission” to have it. It holds no magic, no power. Nothing.
And it is so so interesting. When I want something sweet now, it is very unlikely that I would pick that, because… I am picky now.
I wouldn’t waste my hunger on a candy bar unless it was the exact kind I love the most and I knew it was fresh.
I love it when I get hungry, I protect my hunger. I don’t waste it on stuff I don’t love.
Why would I? Why would you?
That bowl of candy that has been sitting there for a week doesn’t pass the test, usually. I would rather have something hot and delicious out of the oven- fresh cookies or whatever.
It may be different for you. You may not even have a sweet tooth like me.
Value your hunger. It is a gift from Mother Nature. And take care of it with food you love, not some random candy bar just because it happens to be there…
