Pizza! I love it but it doesn't love me so I make a better option to avoid it if its around!

skipping breakfast. That was very hard for me because I am not a breakfast person.

Dipping my hand in the biscuit jar every time i go past. I'm not sure that i've conquered the habit as the urge to snack on the biscuits is always there but i'm managing to restrain myself for now.

Fast food. Before starting Spark, I had gotten used to going out almost everyday for fast food for lunch, and sometimes for breakfast, too. I craved it so badly for about two weeks, but after I got over that, I didn't really want it anymore. Now, I rarely think about fast food as an option.

Potato chips and snack size cheese. I ate toooo much of both of these and usually in the evening as I watched TV. I no longer buy or eat either and eliminated all TV and evening snacking!

Does giving up diet coke count?
it was my favorite thing to drink - replaced with unsweetened ice tea! But what withdrawals I had!

Being a total space cadet in the kitchen. My first attempt to make spaghetti, I burned myself soooo badly! I couldn't even boil water without the kitchen becoming a disaster area.

Soda/Pop

I don't know if I would say I've conqu3red it but I have gone from drinking an insane amount every day to now not being able to remember the last time I had a soda.

It's not a forbidden item but I know it isn't good for me and choose to avoid it.

Diet Coke. For years and years and years I was a Diet Coke addict. And it took years to ween myself off the stuff. So, for me, quitting Diet Coke was a huge food habit that I conquered.

I'm totally soda free now. If I drink a soda, it has to be organic or all natural, no preservatives or chemicals. I won't touch the conventional stuff anymore.

I got myself out of the habit of taking 2nd servings of the main dish at dinner, I learned to be satisfied with just one serving, a sensible sized portion.

Gave up chocolate and cookies about 9 months ago.

I've also reduced my intake of bread, crackers, and desserts.

eating too much / large portions of healthy food.

I conquered the junk years ago but as it turns out, too much of a good thing is no good either.

I didn't even think of ketchup—but yeah, at some point I guess I conquered that (I used to eat everything with ketchup). Huh. How did I not notice?

I was seriously addicted to Little Debbie Swiss Rolls! Sad but true. Can't even stomach the thought of eating one now!

Coming home from work and going straight to the fridge. I wouldn't even be hungry, it was just habit. Looking back that was always a good 300-500 calorie chunk right there, only a couple hours before dinner.

I now have more sensibly sized snacks and that time, and only after asking myself if I'm ACTUALLY hungry.

my craving for bread and french fries, my daughter had some the other night and offered me some and I didn't even think they looked good! That was a great wow moment!

Mine is using ketchup. I put it on many things including eggs. I very seldom use it now, I don't even buy it anymore. I use it when I go out for a burger and fries and that is it.
