Huge bags of ‘fun sized’ Halloween candy are piled high at the grocery store. Everywhere you go today has a big dose of candy mania.
NOT EAT CANDY CORN. Not a single piece. You already know what it tastes like. You can think about it and conjure up that exact taste in your mouth. You can taste it now, can’t you? We all have eaten a thousand little cone shaped pieces. One. Colour. At. A. Time. You don’t need to know how many sugar grams there are in five pieces. You don’t need to know the sugar grams in a mini Snickers bar. Halloween Candy is none of your business. It’s not a food for people who have had obesity surgery.
BREAK GLASS IN CASE OF EMERGENCY. Buying the bag of Sugar Free Werther’s allows for an alternative so no one feels punished. Which statement sounds more reasonable even though the voices are in our heads? “You cant have candy corn! You can’t have anything.” OR “You could have the candy corn but why not have a Sugar Free Werther’s instead.” Boom.
FIND JOY ELSEWHERE. Happiness can be found in a slice of crisp peeled apple you nibble while wearing smaller jeans. It can be found while running around the Pumpkin Patch with your children because you can move and even run. It’s found in not taking diabetes medicine. True solace can be found in the colored leaves while walking on a Fall day. Get high on life instead of a candy rush!
FORCED COMPLIANCE. Take control and refuse to be a victim. No one dies without candy corn.
