Fact: it was successful. I kept to my goal the entire 40 days except for two exceptions:
1. At the Seattle Bike Expo my friend handed me a Smartie from the candy basket at one of the booths. I popped it into my mouth and then realized what I had done. After I spit it into my hand, he ate it.
2. I also took a Swedish fish out of another friend's mouth at a dance party.
So apparently, I am really good at avoiding eating sugar as long as it doesn't involve someone else's mouth. Heyo.
