Lent is approaching - who's giving something up?

#2
Ok since you started this I will join in.

Chocolate
Crisps/snacks
Red wine

I don't eat biscuits as normal or have puddings only yogurt so need to keep the yogurts lol.

Wow thats a lot to give up! I dont know about this year yet. Maybe chocolate but that will be really hard! Maybe crisps. Hmm I dont know! Maybe I will give up fruit and veg ;) lol x

I'm giving it all up because over the years I've found myself substituting the given up item for something else! So instead of choc I just eat more biscuits!!
It will be a challenge, but worth it I'm sure.

I always give up chocolate for Lent - and 99% of the time I'm ok!!

BUT I might take something up for Lent as well. Thinking of making sure I have my 5 a day every day.

Giving up something for Lent?

Now, I am not really religious but I like the idea of giving something up as it keeps me focused.
I wondered if any of you are thinking of giving anything up.

Mine is usually chocolate but for the first time I am so focused on Slimming World that I don't really feel a need.

I'm going to give up unplanned meals out-this is a way of preventing losing control.

The other (more of a mental one) is stop obsessing about my ex boyfriend. (Long story!) x
