    I always give something up for Lent, usually chocolate or cheese but these year I'm going for it. I'm giving up....
    Chocolate
    Sweets
    Biscuits
    Cake
    Puddings
    Eeeeeek!!! It's going to be a struggle! :D

    So, anyone else planning on giving something up for Lent?

    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.

    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

    I've already pretty much given up bread and cheese as part of SW so don't think I could cope giving up anything else!!
