RIP your Diet Coke obsession.

Losing weight safely is a combination of a lot factors — healthy eating, exercise, attitude, patience.

So we want to know: What did you give up that really kickstarted your progress?

Maybe giving up alcohol made a huge difference for you.


(OK, probably not that big of a difference, but y'know.)

Or maybe you ditched Netflix because it always sucked you in when you were supposed to go to the gym.

Maybe you decided to cut out dessert for a week just to see how it would go.

Or maybe you gave up your weekly weigh-ins because the scale was putting you on edge.
