Yay for control!! I found that going through the 4 week process was also so beneficial in targeting when I was going to lose control, and recognize it before it happened - having alternatives in place ahead of time is HUGE in terms of controlling what goes in my mouth. AND I survived the Easter Bunny yesterday!! Had a few nibbles of M&M's, but my kids baskets were otherwise safe. And I have not secretly binged on the extras!

We are ALL in more control now! We have the knowledge and tools to reduce sugar. I will still eat it in moderation and am more aware of where it is hiding!!! Another great Spark Challenge!!!

Its almost a feeling of power -- learning you have more control over food addictions than you than you think you did!

This is great to hear. Comforting to know and believe. You are on the right track.

Keep following those good, healthy instincts.

Before starting this challenge, I had gone without my sugar bowl for a week and felt like I was a drug addict going through withdrawal. But when I went through this challenge and worked on it over 4 weeks I have definitely cut down significantly on the sugar. And I know when the cravings will come and I have alternatives. I have more control. And I will continue.
