    ...that is, cheating at doing Cambridge, LOL. Cos the only person I'm cheating is me, right?

    So, for the next 46(??) days, I will not be cheating. I will be sticking to the CWP rules like glue, LOL.

    Anyone wanna join me? :D :D

    I'll do it too, so long as fybogel and lactulose don't count as cheating?

    Do we get an easter egg on Easter Sunday? :p

    Yay! Glad I'm not going to be alone!

    LOL, Trisha - I know, I thought that. And then I thought, why not? It's something different to try, and when you're a serial restarter like me :rolleyes: it helps to put the focus somewhere else.

    And that's nearly seven weeks - if I can do this, it'll make a huge difference to my weight - and how I feel about myself.

    Loving the idea about the Easter Egg, LOL. :8855: Maybe not the best of ideas, but hey... :)

    Hey,
    maybe drop the word cheating (negative) and replace it with " I am choosing (positive) to stick to this for the next 46 days "

    Well, if you don't take what you, ahem, need - you might end up giving birth to an Easter egg on Easter Sunday. That wouldn't be good... :D

    Another steaming good idea.

    I am certainly in for it. However I will not be totally SS as need some SS+ days due to family celebrations - is that a cop out?

    I hereby promise to stick to the rules of SS and SS+ for the next 7 weeks

    Scared now lol

    It's a good point and I get what you're getting at, but it kind of spoils the 'giving up for Lent' bit, Fitz :D

    'Giving up' in itself sounds negative, I suppose. :) :sigh:

    I am giving up using negative phrases for Lent?

    Nah. ;)

    Though I am working very hard on not using the words 'weight loss' anymore (cos losing something implies you might wanna find it again).

    I'm for this, I should be pure SS except for 3 days (on a conference with work) that I plan to be SS+ for --- it's always a buffet so I'm just going to go for salad so that it doesn't stand out.
