    Okay so it's been one week and almost 2 days since COFFEE... and I am hurting. I guess thats the whole point of this right?!?

    My question is.... did any of you give up anything? What? How's it going :)

      I gave up sweets. No cookies, candy, chocolate, etc.

      I'm doing ok but it is hard to resist the temptation! I did eat a piece of chicken in a salad for lunch on the first Friday of Lent and felt really bad about it afterwards. LOL

          I have a hard time giving up also - I've decided to add something the last couple years and it's helped a lot! This year I added going to Church every Sunday since I've been so bad about it.

                Okay....FI totally laughed when I told him my main thing that I was giving up....so don't laugh. No....it's okay, you can. I gave up HOT CHEETOS. I was eating a 99 cent bag every day with lunch. I don't know what it is about them...they are addicting. Along with that I gave up sweets....right in time to recieve my Girl Scout Cookies...AHHHHHH. So far so good....so maybe I'll loose weight, save money, and feel better. Woohoo Go ME!

                  AHHH you caught me! Actually, I think I'd have major withdrawal issues, so it was probably better for my health to not give up all caffeine But nothing seems to do it like black coffee!

                      to show you how much I've forgot about religion class in primary school: I didn't even know it was Lent.

                      I haven't had any chips since last Saturday, does that count? lol
