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.

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.
