this topic hit home with me. this is the only team I am in, and I am staying because it helps me to read about other's struggles with sugar. however, I just now deleted all my "other" goals, fast break goals, etc. I find I am spending too much time on the computer on spark pages, and I need to use my limited time out getting physical activity. I'm no longer going to worry about spark points as much either. just going to track my nutrition, weight, and occasionally read motivation articles or recipes, and check on this team. thanks for listening!

Sorry to hear you're leaving and yet I'm gald to her you found a method that is working for you. and
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
Mistakes are the portals of discovery.
Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
It is never too late to be what you might have been.

but for a good reason. While the quiz identifies me as having a borderline sweet tooth, I'm already doing the challenge activities habitually. After a week, I'm realizing I can't honestly log progress because I'm not retraining, I'm just continuing things already internalized.
I'm going to focus harder on my biggest weakness - getting daily exercise. To that end, instead of blogging about sweets I went out and walked a 17-minute mile after eating lunch!
Best of luck, everyone. Those sweet cravings CAN be beaten, this method works. Just stick with it, and come right back if you slip up.
