Did you give anything up? Did your SO? Kids?

In the past I've done meat, chocolate, soda, and fried foods (that was my toughest I think!)

How are you doing without what you gave up?

We recently changed denominations. Here they don't do the whole Lent thing and I kind of miss it. This year I did not give anything up. I had lap band surgery which severly limited what I can eat, so I added morning prayer time instead. Our kids did do some fourty cay challenge a while back, where they had specific things to do each day and they all gave stuff up. It was amazing the effect on the whole high school, because the kids were very good at sticking it out, it's a large youth group so they watched each other at school, but the other kids all noticed too. My son had given up sweets and forgot and bought an ice cream sandwhich, one if his friends teasing said, "hey, I thought you weren't supposed to eat sweets", my son said you are right and handed the unopened ice cream sandwhich to him. The kid was shocked.
