"No" Spark Streaks


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Start a "no" streak, like no chocolate or no cookies or no candy. Take it one day at a time. Don't say I will NEVER eat a chocolate again. Just say, I am trying to see how long I can go without it. I can eat one if I want to, I simply choose not to today.

Giving up chocolate has eliminated a large number of "problem foods" and I have lost 15 pounds. Posting the number of days where I can see it all day is a huge motivation, especially when everyone at work knows what it means.

    emoticon strategy. Willpower with an acknowlegement that you can have it, just choose not to. It's all about choices. Thank you for the "secret".
