    Chocolate and sugary drinks. It won't be that hard since I don't eat so much since my braces were put in anyway, but I do need to lose weight, and last time I gave them up for like three weeks I lost weight!

    All sugary stuff.
    I do not really like sugary snacks anyway as they are really unhealthy.

    I think for Lent you should give up something that will be a challenge to do rather than something you hardly ever eat in the first place. I'm giving up chocolate and I usually eat chocolate every day! To make matters worse it's my birthday during Lent so they'll be no chocolate cake for me!

    Everything junky and obviously unhealthy - cake, chocolate, crisps, sweets, ice cream, chips, flapjack etc etc...gonna be interesting. It's really tough but it feels like such an achievement! I managed it once before (about three years ago) but I didn't end up losing weight because I started eating toast all the time as a substitute

    I did chocolate one year.
    I lasted about 2 days lol.

    How about saving a certain amount each week which at the end of easter you can give to charity?

    Or do one of those sponsered things. Like a sleep out or a 'wear PJs to school' (we did that one year, it was funny yet a bit awful at the same time lol).
