Growing up, the only time I ever heard about Lent was when my Catholic friends talked about it. I am a devout Christian, but not all Christian religions follow the practice of Lent.
That said, although I don't follow this practice, I did think about it this morning, and rather than give something up, what I have decided to do is to make a real effort to cut down on my portions when I eat. This has been a big problem for me, especially since we went through a couple really lean years, often only having one small "meal" (a cheap TV dinner, or a can of vegetables) a day. The goal, of course, is to continue this, but I figured that since this is when so many are talking about giving something up, it would be a good time to focus on it.
