Halloween is next week. And that means your kids are gonna have bagfuls of free candy that will probably take a week or two to eat. It's a great time to be a kid -- but not such a good time to lose weight.
But really ... Is there EVER a good time to lose weight? After Halloween, we'll be looking forward to Thanksgiving, then Christmas, then New Years ... Lots of food everywhere.
Mix in a birthday party here and a wedding there and it could be that there's NEVER a stretch of even a few weeks where somebody's not putting a plate of food and a high-calorie drink in your face.
