I gave up all snack items (which includes dessert!!!) and I fast every Friday. I don't drink anything but water and orangs juice so this is the only thing I could give up reasonably. I gave up eBay last year but I can't do that right now. I'm into purses too much and giving up snack items is definitely giving up something more than just eBay.
i'm not doing it because of lent, i'm not religious at all, it just kind of...coincided i guess (i didn't even know lent was coming up when i made the decision), but i went back to weight watchers this week. i like to think of it as i'm giving up being fat, lol.
Same as every year - I've given up giving things up for lent.
Sorry, I don't mean to be rude, but I come from a pretty non-religious background (dad's an athiest - a devout one tho'), so its never been a big deal for me. But for those of you with more willpower than me (ie anyone who's given someting up), best of luck!
