Probably the toughest event of them all:

Give up a favorite junk food for this contest and share what it is, 10 pts

**** it! I was hoping this was happening later. I was going to enjoy some peanut M&Ms today. Oh well, I'll be giving up peanut M&Ms for the duration. I'll have to write myself a note at work so I don't grab some where they tempt me everyday. Also, I'll have to take a (more healthy) snack to the office.

This is a difficult one! I have a terrible sweet/fat tooth. I'm going to do it, though...

I'm giving up store-bought sweets, particularly snack cakes. I love Twinkies, even though I know they're devoid of anything nutritionally sound. I prefer to make the snacks I send to school in my kids' lunches, but when pressed for time I opt for Twinkies. Guess who eats most of them?

Actually, this goes along with one of my weight management goals for the campaign. I'm avoiding foods that I like but are available all the time. During this season my only indulgences are going to be on foods that are "special", and only available during the holidays.

Mine will have to be candy in general, as in candy from the kids' Halloween buckets, Christmas parade stashes, and all the candy jars at work--HR office, a co-worker's office, etc. This will be tough. But it needs to be done. Yesterday afternoon I managed to snag:

4-5 twizzlers
1 fun size bag m&m's
1 fun size 3 Musketeers
1 little bag of runts

All from the same candy bowl and that was my snack. Pure sugar.


Should we revoke our 10 points if we don't make it or not add them until the end of the campaign when we do make it?

I'm thinking I should give up french fries. I love them. And they are soooo bad.

But I have to think about this for a second. I eat more sugared stuff than I do fries. So.. I'll get back to ya.

This is the worst day of my life...... I don't know how I will survive. Can't this be worth 10 points for each day we are successful????

Oh God. I was going to give up Oreos, because although those are my favorite, I would still be left with a whole lotta other junky stuff that I could eat. That doesn't seem quite right though, so I'll copy one of the other posters and give up......

all store bought sweets including but not limited to candy bars, oreos, other packaged cookies, MY FAVORITE whoopie pies, ICE CREAM, granola bars (not technically junk food, but I eat them like crazy)....

Oooooo this should help me lose my last 5 or 10 pounds! This is going to be tragic, though.

I'm having a hard time coming up with something as I don't eat the same junk stuff every day (or consistently). Not bragging just sharing my misery.
Ok. I'm going to give up ice cream.

This is hard since I have been eating a lot of junk lately - but ice cream is the one thing I eat consistently, so I guess that's what I am giving up.
