    Hi Ladies - as the title says..... Are any of you giving anything up for Lent?

    In a bid to shift a couple of pounds and get a little below target, I am going to give up chocolate and biscuits. It's gonna be hard.......:cry:

    Anyone else?

    Chocolate too.
    I gave it up for Lent a number of years back - it was hard but I managed it!!

    oooh great thread - I never usually bother with lent but I'll give up chocolate AND biscuits - will certainly help my SW life! AND I'm hoping to get to target by Easter so this could be the boost I need!

    I'm thinking alcohol and unnecessary packaging (refusing to buy anything bound up in pointless plastic).

    Either wine or chocolate - don't think I could live without my glass of wine on a Saturday night so I guess it has to be chocolate!

    I'm not sure to be honest... I have so little chocolate etc now it's not really worth giving up, but I teach at a catholic school so have to make a lenten promise and set a good example tomorrow I think. Argh! What to do.... I can hardly tell a class of 5 year olds I'm gonna give up sex! lol

    I gave up chocolate last year with my housemate - and we both managed it! (although my housemate did have recurring dreams about chocolate for the first week or so! :S)

    I don't really eat all that much chocolate now - so I think I'm just going to try to get more exercise in.. instead of giving something up - I'm gonna start doing something :D lol!
