...and for lent, I've gone CRAZY :)
« on: March 09, 2011, 11:20:08 PM »
I am Kirsty...and I'm a chocoholic!

I have seemingly gone CRAZY and have decided to give up anything chocolatey for lent! That's all the way from NOW (or, this morning) until Easter Sunday. That's a WHOLE 47days of chocolateness!

Now, this maybe impossible but:
a.) I'm simply too stubborn to give up without reaaally trying!
b.) What am I loosing by doing it? Other than a bit of weight and a few potential cavitys (I could definately think of worse losses!)
c.) I feel it maybe a good step to recovery - nothing better than a bit of cold turkey ;)
d.) Think of the big stash of chocolate I will have by the time it comes to Easter Sunday. It'll be like Christmas 3 times over! [Although, I will be on Splosh and the stash will be at home, so I may just have to buy some!]
e.) I would LOVE to raise some money for the NAS by doing this!

WHAT'S MORE? I will donate 10p for EVERYTIME I say I want some chocolate! :) That'll stop me moaning at least ;) !

Please get donating now...

The more I raise, the less likely I am to cave in ♥ - Every little counts!
All money goes to the National Autistic Society who do amazing work supporting those affected by Autism accross the country! Without them, so many families would be in crisis, and Autism research would also be nothing! :) They also DESPERATELY need your money!

Before you put on a frown, make absolutely sure there are no smiles available! :D

Oh you don't need chocolate.  You especially wont miss the cadburys cream eggs with their sweet and creamy insides.  Kit Kats and Mars bars too, they wont be a problem with their biscuity and caramel goodness.  No more tins of Roses and Quality Street; you can leave all those for your friends.  If I were you I just wouldn't think about Haagen Daz or Ben and Jerrys ice cream.  You wont need their rich chocolatey goodness or many flavours like cookie dough, fish food, srawberry cheesecake or half baked.  EEEuuurrrrhhh yuk

I have chosen to give up my current job for lent...although I will be 2 days into Lent by then!  Roll on 5pm when I skip out of the door!

Kirsty, I will eat chocolate for you to help you :)

For Lent I am giving up Lent. If I have in the past given you anything on a temporary basis then please give it back.

Good luck Kirsty, you are braver than me.

THANK YOOOU Mark :) Greatly appreciated!!

For anyone that doesn't know - I made it! I gave up chocolate all the way from Shrove Tues until Easter Sunday, which apparently happened to be more than 40 days *sniffs* .....I am still just as much of a chocoholic as I ever have been ;)
