What’s One Thing You Gave Up That Really Kickstarted Your Weight Loss?

RIP your Diet Coke obsession.

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

But even if there's no single ~magic~ step to losing weight, little changes can make a big difference.

Maybe giving up alcohol made a huge difference for you.

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.

So tell us what you ditched — whether it was a food/drink or habit or attitude — that really helped with your weight loss.

Share it in the comments and you could be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Health post.
