Giving it up for lent

We are not Catholic but I usually give up something for Lent.  This year Jeremy and I have been talking about what to give up.  We decided we should give up something that will help us on our healthy eating diet.

So we decided to give up 

soft drinks
The buffets wont be too bad since we don't eat at them THAT often. We did go to our favorite Chinese buffet on Monday to "get it out of our system".  The soft drinks will be a major challenge.  I have given them up before, once for 4 years, but it's a hard habit to break.

I'm hoping it will help give me that extra push in my weight loss that I need right now.  I've been stuck at the same spot for a few weeks and am ready to get it rolling again.

Do you give anything up for Lent?

If you do, what are you giving up this year?
