Since the small changes that stick are what willl give us longterm success, I think that was a BIG win.
I work night shift, and our secretary suplies us with candy all night. I did take one little 10g Krackle bar, but that is it.

When I say "no" I use the same technique as FITBODME. I visualize and imagine. It almost always works. I am so proud of myself in the morning if I have resisted food the night before. I am instantly in a good mood! My reward: I get to eat an awesome breakfast!! Oh yeah!
Eliminate "I will try". Replace with "I will". You are now ready to succeed. Let's go.
Every "no" is big to me! I have a roommate who is a tooth pick and has so much junk food in the cupboards. i try to have tunnel vision when it comes to opening those doors lol. I have a designated shelf for me alone so i can stare straight eye level. hehe You did a awesome thing and every little no counts to the big picture.

It may be small step, but the calories you saved are huge! I kept craving an alcoholic drink yesterday, especially toward the evening so I "could sleep better". I kept saying "no" and just imagined all of the carbs I wasn't going to drink and the weight I was going to lose. It worked and I slept fine. I was also craving a cigarette, but that's another story (I said no again)

Super Fantastic!!! That is what it takes, small changes lead to big results. One decision at a time, one meal at a time, one day at a time, one week at a time!

Awesome - some times it's one day at a time, others it's one hour or moment at a time!

Yeah, it is a small victory but that is exactly what the Spark approach is all about: small, achievable goals, small victories building up, one on the other, to create momentum. You keep making the healthy choices! Spark ON!
You’ll get where you want to go as long as you are taking more steps in the right direction than the wrong one.
