I have been doing great with my giving up of food with sugar. I am looking forward to an Easter splurge, but then I hope to go back to not eating it. I do have to work on the sugar in beverages, as in the coffee drinks I love so much. I have limited myself to 1 starbucks a week, but I have found myself at those golden arches, and not for food either, but for an iced coffee. I knew that I couldn't do both for lent though, so I just kept it to food. Babysteps. How is everybody else doing?

Hi Boxer Buddies. I have been away from Spark People for a little while due to family/grad school situations. But I have been doing well on diet and exercise. I had some set backs, i.e. weight gain, this winter and have powered through it since lent started. Every year I give up sugary items, this year I gave up junk food. I vowed to only eat clean. It has not been easy. I love crisps, pretzels, pizza, etc. Since lent started I lost almost 8 pounds and I am really hoping to not return to my old ways next week when Easter arrives.

The first two weeks of lent were kind of bad, getting used to not eating a small piece of chocolate after lunch or pretzels at work that are always there. I have had some close calls but my self imposed guilt has been keeping me on track. I have read a few posts, glad to see people surviving cravings too. I think lent is a good will power exercise. I hope we all can come out of the season better off than when we started.

Best of luck to all, we only have one more week.

Cheers.

Did great last night, I went to a concert/dance party and there were some tempting goodies there, but I hardly had the desire for them, today though, I have been having a pretty steady craving for something sweet! So far so good, but *sigh* it hasn't been easy.

So far, so good. I have not had any sugar, although I have been tempted. But only mildly tempted. And I went to bed hours earlier than I have been last night, and I am so tired tonight, I should be in bed even earlier. My goal is to go to bed early enough that I am not tired in the morning.

I am giving up sugar in food (I am allowing my one shamrock shake of the year and my once a week starbucks treat in drink form) and I am giving up staying up late.
