I have a good friend Lori who pointed out something to me while our kids trick-or-treated this Halloween. She said that Halloween candy is like her gateway drug. Of course I laughed, but at that instant I had the lightbulb go off over my head. Lori said that once she eats one piece of candy it's all over. "What's one more, it won't kill me, I have it all under control". Just like the person who says "it's just pot, it's no big deal. I don't do anything harder." and the next thing you know they're shooting up heroine. But it's not just the gateway to finishing off your kid's halloween candy. It's the gateway to gaining 5 pounds over the holiday season. It's the gateway to not just falling off the wagon concerning your weight loss efforts, but in jumping off with both feet and screaming "yahooooo!!!!". So if you don't want to lose control this holiday season don't let halloween candy be your gateway drug!
