I couldn't give up ice cream because, well, it's also pie season--apple, pumpkin, pecan, berry--whatever your poison it's all better with ice cream . Even though Cool Whip is a very viable alternative.

OK, I'm giving up nacho cheese doritos. I'm a "salty cheesy" person, not a "sweets" person. This reminds me of giving up stuff for Lent when I was a little kid. This is going to be hard, but actually it'll be good for my waistline.

I'm going with candy in all forms, especially the chocolate kind. I got back into that evil habit around Halloween and am definitely eating way too much of it now. Ughh.....

I will give up candy and pop tarts. I don't eat pop tarts daily, but i do have a weakness for the brown sugar cinnamon ones. But we always seems to have candy in the office somewhere and my son still has a big jar full of his loot, so I dip into that periodically. I will abstain from both and that should cover just about every day.

Honestly, I'm not trying to brag here, believe me I used to eat everything junk food... but I'm a heart patient who lives in semi fear of what "bad" foods could do to me... I don't eat junk food anymore.

How bout I promise not to eat any Pumpkin pie tomorrow?

Lol I don't think I'm in this one. I surprise myself how healthy I eat now compared to a year ago or so and the only "bad" things I allow myself are small candy treats, like 1 or 2 a day. I even only eat ice cream once a week now instead of before where it was everyday! I'd will end up destroying something if I don't get some sugar craving filled.

That's harsh! Don't know if I could do that. Ice cream is the thing that I seem to eat more of although inconsistently. Thanks for thinking of me!! If I come up w/ something else I'll add that to the ice cream veto.

I'll pass on all candy. I also have gotten into a bad habit of eating the leftover halloween candy while I'm watching the boob tube. I should pass on donuts, too. I don't have them as often but they sure are hard to resist if they are in the area.
Ah heck, I'll pass on both candy and donuts!!!

I'm afraid the only really serious junk-food addiction that I have is a doozie - french fries.

I hereby announce that I am going to give up french fries for the next 7weeks.

This is going to be about the toughest thing I've done since I quit smoking over 13 years ago.

Oh, and BTW, The Sandy Claws team rocks!!!

I chose ice cream too I am dying inside. Last week I polished off the Starbuck chocolate almond coffee, the Ben & Jerry's PB cup, and the Edy's Cookies 'n Cream. I cannot believe I am not going to get to have all the different holliday peppermint stick varieties...10 freaking points...just saying

Wow, this was a tough one. I was torn between giving up candy, chips and dip, or ice cream.

I guess I do the most damage with the candy, so that's what I'm giving up.

Egads! Seven weeks without chocolate? Am I mad!?! If I'm not now, I probably will be after...SEVEN WEEKS WITHOUT CHOCOLATE!!

This is a pretty serious thing to contemplate so I've had to spend most of the day carefully considering my options. Although the obvious would be chocolate, my most recent weakness is drive-thru fast food of the McD's, BK, and Wendy's kind. Moving to a big city with options is pretty tempting and I have been known to stop by McD's for a cheeseburger before heading home for dinner.

It's probably the thing that is most keeping my weight fluctuating between 3 to 4 lbs on the scale on any given day.

I will give up all forms of fast food,***

My heart, my wallet and my waistline will thank me for this, I'm sure.

***with the stipulation that if for some reason I am working at one job site for the morning and get called to work at another job site in the afternoon, I will try to find a subway or a grocery store to buy my lunch, but failing that I can go to one of the above-mentioned places out of necessity and time constraints. This has only happened once in the past 2 months so probably isn't even an issue, but I'm just sayin'...

2011 - This  year is about the journey to December 31, 2011, not how soon the number on the scale satisfies me.
