I am sooooo in...just because it's a holiday doesn't mean I have to succumb to poor eating choices and pay with the sugar-lows and instant belly fat!!

Here's to a healthy Easter Sunday 2010!!!

I'm in for a modified pledge. I pledge that I will not eat more than TWO (2) Cadbury eggs and ONE (1) small chocolate bunny. Everything in moderation, right?

Yes, yes, yes. I am maintaining a 27 pound loss, and I will not go through another relapse. No jellybean is worth it. I'm in!

I'm doing good so far! I have not had any Easter candy this month! Of course, it's not in the house, so that makes it easier.

The only candy I have had is those soft peppermints... Not too many, but I am trying to quit smoking, so I use those as an aid.

Gosh, taking the pledge really helped keep me from mindlessly taking a chocoloate egg here or a jelly bean there. I am so relieved to have made it through the holiday without going overboard on candy/food. I know if I had started and had even one piece, it may have started me off on a bad road of overeating/gaining for a few days or even weeks. I feel great today! Thank you for starting the pledge!!!

It could have been a lot, lot worse. I was fine all weekend. Today of all days, I broke the pledge. It's gone, it's over, and I'm moving on.

I have done it so far - not one bite. There is still some in the house, but I'm staying away from it. And the birthday cake.

I'm proud of myself, believe me! Let's hope I last until it's all gone.

Good grief. I took the pledge. I avoided all the heaps of candy at the stores. I avoided all the offered candy. No candy came into my house. Made it to noon Easter Sunday.

When two teenage friends were in a verbal tiff about whether the pink jelly beans were too hot to be consumed. Asked me to referee; so I popped three jelly beans. Completely forgot they were candy and I wasn't doing candy.

No, they're quite spicy, but not too hot to be consumed. Teenagers leave chasing whatever the next thing was on their mind.

I guess three jelly beans for the season wasn't so bad - but I'm annoyed that they slipped in my mouth so easily.

I was right on track with my plan -- small amount of chocolate bunny & 2 creme eggs.

Until my aunt unexpectedly mailed us a solid chocolate bunny from the specialty chocolate shop near her place in NJ. I think DH and I ate about half of it last night. I have the willpower to avoid bringing sweets into the house, but once they're in, I can't resist. And it's from the special shop all the way in NJ! How could I throw it out?

Well, my announcement was premature. About 2 hrs later, I ate a mini kit kat in a pink wrapper. Perhaps it was a Valentine's kit kat? Bill, it was kind of auto-pilot for me, too.

Old habits and all.

Could have been worse. I hate that motto, but it's been close to my nutrition/exercise choices lately.

I may not be out of the woods yet... My mom, whom I didn't see this weekend, has an Easter basket for me at her house that she is saving until she sees me next... If I don't get it until Mother's Day does it still count as Easter candy?

I had none. Nothing. In spite of being alone in a hotel room that night with my mother's opened bag of Jelly Bellies lying right on the kitchenette counter, with the beans spilled out in a colorful array. I moved myself away & tried not to look at them. I thought of having one & decided that was a bad idea. I never stop at one. I had an orange & took a long time peeling it, getting the pith off it. Then I brewed a cup of decaf & drank that. Then it was bedtime.
