Resistance is Futile

Sweettooths unite!

This is the season for resistance… as many of us have made resolutions or set goals for the New Year, I expect that, like me, there are a good number of you who made diet part of them.

Resisting the temptation to give in to those oh-so-tasty carbohydrates is probably the hardest part of any weight loss program; harder than keeping that exercise regimen and getting the clothes off the treadmill…

Then, there’s February’s ultimate carb-laden celebration: Valentine’s Day!  Lots of candy hearts and chocolate is given for this holiday to celebrate the martyred priest who was beheaded in 269 AD for performing Christian marriage ceremonies.


Lots of candy indeed, but were you aware that it’s only the 4th biggest holiday for candy in the United States?  Halloween, Easter and Christmas beat it out in total sales.

Are you getting candy for your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day?

Inspired by WordPress Daily Prompt of Resist.
