Today begins the long season of Lent - are you ready for it? I am Episcopalian hence I believe in giving something up for this season. As usual I wait until the last moment to think about what I want to give up for the entire season. Usually I go into the easy pace of giving something up that I can live without having too much trouble. This year I am trying to think of something that will help my weight loss and also help in repenting. I am taking today to really think about the season and come up with something that I can give up while still making a large contribution to my observance of this season. After all, this is the season that is most important to Christians around the world.
So, what are you giving up this season? Yes, I'm looking for more ideas. (cheating) Even if you are not Christian, have you thought about giving something up for yourself? It is a great time to take advantage of giving something up that could also help in your weight loss this year. It is a time to rethink your life and your beliefs... Every time you think about the item you are giving up, you will think about your weight loss and hopefully even about the reason why Christians give up things this time of the year. (see link) It might help you find yourself (and maybe even God) this season.
