    I LOVE THIS!!!!!!

    I have a lot of weight to lose, so I'll throw in Cursed Child in the end. Which I preordered and waited in line for, but still haven't finished because the play style fanfiction writing makes me sad and mad....but anyways.

    I will be listening on audiobook, because I sadly haven't much time for actual real page reading these days. :)

    I can't seem to get through this book either. I don't like the style at all and have myself mad at it as well. I am listening to Order of the Pheonix now on audio though to cleanse the experience

    Absolutely, @PinUpGirlAtHeart - wherever you feel comfortable starting! Really there are no hard-and-fast rules about this challenge - it's just a way of getting us motivated using a common hobby!

    So, welcome.

    I love your enthusiasm and I think having a passionate personality is really useful when it comes to something like weight loss. Not to say that "go big or go home" is the right way to do things, but I reckon passionate people's focus is really highly trained to fix on a goal and to get it! Kind of in the same way successful sportspeople achieve things without giving up - because they have a love for what they do.

    I'll give you brownie points for that post!!!!!! Er, uh - house points then ;)

    Sorry I haven't checked in - Thanksgiving sent me up a few pounds even though I thought I was really good. And then TOM came so I didn't weight for a week. I am finally down a few pounds though, so yay! I haven't started reading HP though...so I am apparently doing this challenge all wrong, ha ha. I had to finish the series I was on as I didn't want to just quit. So I am almost done and then on to Sorcerer's Stone!

    Super excited to go to the Barnes and Noble HP Ball tomorrow - I am trying to get through this last book so I can start Sorcerer's Stone when I get back.
