Which of the following would you wish for?

The power to stop time
Winning the lottery
A traffic-stopping body
The ability to read minds
Landing my dream job

None of the above. I would wish for good health and continued happiness!

We're on a one-lane road with no street lights...and no children that I know of...so we usually get nobody at all. Just in case, I have oranges, though I know that pretty well assures that if anyone comes, they won't be back next year! :)

Nothing for me or my house. I'll get something to hand out to the few kids who come to the door, but anything left gets tossed.

I sometimes hand out popcorn with a ribbon on the top of the little bag but do hand out one mini candy bar, too.
This year I am at my dd's so it's her thing.

I buy a small bag in case I have children come to the door. I have two little friends who are struggling with diabetes and gluten issues, so buy small non-food items for them.

I usually do not buy candy this time of year. I did buy a large bag of mixed candy recently...

I made a jar of candy for a friend to have on her desk. Another jar of candy for a neighbors children. And I made a very large container of candy for the firemen that came to my house when I had a water hose leak in my house just recently/ Nice guys.

And no, these were not healthy treats.

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win but think you can't,
It's almost certain you won't.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can. (Walter D. Wintle)

What is your biggest weight loss hurdle?

No motivation
No time to work out
Dining out too much
No help from anyone else
Discouragemen
Holidays and vacations

For me it would be dining out too often.
