I have been on spark for a little while and reading other success stories and understanding that others faced the same problems each day and did not give up, motivated me to finally stick with it and do whatever it takes to stick with it, also motivating others by responding to blogs and sharing
encouraging thoughts and ideas as well as reading them
If you've begun to give into a serious binge episode, don't hide; go find someone and tell them! As soon as you start talking, you will hear how foolish your actions were, and your escalating emotions will abate, giving your mind a chance to sort things out and get you off your path of destruction. Not only that, but you'll have someone to hold you accountable. This saved my day today, after a three-cookie trigger.
I tell a trustworthy person who I think will understand and will encourage me to do what is right.
