a book and a couple pounds

I just finished the first book in The Hunger Games series and really enjoyed it (I can already hear my sister Dani's 'I told you so').  The best part of finishing it was that the interest driving me to start the second book was easily met by a quick download to my nook.  This officially marks the first novel I've started reading on my nook and so far, so good.  I have to admit I was a little worried I wouldn't like reading from it it as a paperback book (and I don't completely) but I know I'll appreciate it the next time I'm traveling and can bring as many books with me on it as I'd like.  More than once, I've finished a book sooner than planned and had no other options OR I haven't already started a book prior to leaving and have to pack several to provide options (I never know what I'll be in the mood for!).   Overall, I'm glad Jake bought me one for my birthday and I'm sure he's glad to see me finally using it.

On a separate note (although it's not too much of a stretch to jump from something hunger related to talk about weight), I've lost almost 7 pounds so far on Weight Watchers and I'm really excited about it.  It was really nice to step on the scale at the end of a holiday weekend and have still lost over a pound that week.  I'm starting to see my clothes fitting better and the chub in my cheeks has definitely lessened (or so people say).  I know seeing more weight come off will be a slow progression, but the little bit so far as been a big motivator.  Hopefully my weigh in this Sunday will mark another pound down.  My goal was to see 1-2 pounds each week, which considering I'll be on this plan during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's it'll be nice to potentially be losing weight during the holiday season compared to gaining it.

Thanks for all the encouragement you've been sending my way, it's been nice to read/hear it!
