Cake central forum is truly addictive. That is why I am giving up cake central forum, facebook, and surfing the internet for lent.


If you observe lent, what do you plan to give up?

Same as usual, I observe the traditional fast of the medieval Catholic church: no eggs, meat (except for seafood), or dairy.

Thank goodness for Sundays, otherwise I'd have to wait to celebrate my birthday (March 30) after Easter most years! icon_biggrin.gif

LOL, you observe "Lent Lite" too? (Taking Sundays of Lent "off" from your chosen penance/sacrifice.) My youngest child's birthday is March 29th and we also celebrate his birthday every year on a Sunday. icon_smile.gif

What a true sacrifice to give up eggs, meat, and dairy! I could never make it as a vegan.

icon_lol.gif My mother used to let me do that when I was younger!

I haven't decided yet but that's quite the challenge prterrell! thumbs_up.gif Probably Facebook and always chocolate.

My husband became a vegan for health reasons. My children still drink dairy, egg and fish/chicken.

I do not believe in forcing my kids to become a vegan until they are an adult.

The best part of giving up junk food I lost over 100 pounds.

That's a wise choice. I was a vegetarian as a teen and didn't grow at all during the three years I was eating like that. When my sister got much taller than me, my mom took me to the doctor and he said there was an enzyme I should have been adding to my diet in order to grow. So I have short arms and legs, not to the point where most people notice, but shorter than what's normal on someone my height.

Well, according to what I've been taught in church, Sundays aren't part of the 40 days, so as long as you go to church on those days, you don't have to count them. I generally stick to it on Sundays, too, though because it's just harder on Monday, otherwise, but I *do* make an exception for a slice of birthday cake! icon_biggrin.gif

You are exactly right - the commemoration of the Resurrection is every Sunday, including Sundays of Lent, so Sundays aren't counted as any of the 40 days of Lent...but some of my friends who don't take "off" the Sundays of Lent call it "Lent Lite." LOL

I wish I was hardcore enough to give up dairy, eggs, and meat too. That is really amazing.

The Day of Lent

I am giving up cake central forum, surfing the internet except at work for email and spreadsheets (I'm an accountant)

sugar, and flour.


I eliminated eggs, dairy and meat from my diet and decided to be vegan for life.


My husband is giving up chocolate and coffee.
