Lent will be over in a few days. How did you do with your abstinence?

I gave up meat & poultry for lent and in three days I may it eat it again. But I feel so good with out it that I am a little afraid to go back. I love meat, especially chicken and I have a hard time resisting a second portion. I think I will go slowly, and continue to have meatless days.

I don't celebrate Lent, but often tried to give up chocolate. Pop would be another good one for me. Of course, I have nearly a full liter sitting in my frige

I'm not Catholic, and I haven't celebrated Lent, but I did think it was a good time to give up something.

I've been thinking all day, "What do I really like that I should give up?"

I decided to give up my nightly toddy! I know, I know... shame on me. But I love to sit back and relax before dinner with a little nip of Vodka and juice. I'm sure this is what is keeping the weight on!

Farewell Vodka!! Farewell O.J.!!

Your post made think of my days as a young devoted Catholic girl who practiced abstaining from meat every Friday and the Mon-Fri of Holy Week. I since abandoned that practice, but after reading the beneficial reasons for such practice, I decided to abstain from eating meat for 40 days and abstaining from meat and meat products on all Wednesdays and Fridays during lent.

Thank you Becky for reminding of the Lent traditions.

It was Shrove Tuesday(pancake day) here yesterday. Traditionally people made pancakes to use up their eggs before Ash Wednesday when fasting began. We ate pancakes last night, but we won't be fasting for lent! I will continue to buy eggs all through lent and I don't think I will be giving anything up! I am not Catholic, but the church of England still celebrate lent and many people give up something for lent. It does not have to be food!

Just wanted to thank you for this info, it's always nice to keep track of different holidays - especially if they are not celebrated around me. I'll be very interested in reading people's replies emoticon

All about Lent:
Lent is the period of fasting leading up to the feast of Easter, recalling Jesus' 40-day fast in the wilderness. Catholic Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and ends right before the evening Masses of Holy Thursday, although Lenten penance continues through Holy Saturday. In 2011, Lent begins on March 9 in the Western Church.

Is anyone celebrating Lent? What are you giving up for Lent?
