Secrets of Success

"No" Spark Streaks



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.

More Information:

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". - by DHSPARK
  • If I want a piece of chocolate I'll have a piece and I'm usually good with one piece. I don't eat chocolate as much as I used too or as much as my son does. My thing is pasta, bread and sugar. Pasta and bread have become better. Still working on sugar. I like sugar in my tea. - by DEEKELLYE
