I live in Illinois. I am a full-time student and part-time receptionist. I am trying to lose 50-75 pounds. The most exercise I get is walking to the bus stop, from the bus to school, and from the bus stop to home. I am trying to lose some weight to feel better about myself. Sat, 11 Apr 2015 20:12:47 EST Hi! I'm new to the team and wanted to introduce myself. :) I'm Ana and I'm obsessed with the Harry Potter books and movies. :) I'm looking to lose some weight and meet people with similar interests. Hello! Sat, 28 Mar 2015 04:25:36 EST Greetings!!! Hello, I am jenn. I am new to all this, so please forgive any mistakes. lol. I am having trouble getting around. <BR> I am 38 and live in PA. <BR> I fell in love with Potter when my younger brother used to insist I read the books to him when he was little. I was hooked!! Sat, 30 Aug 2014 18:46:53 EST Hello everyone! Just thought I'd join the team since I'm a huge Potter fan! Hi guys! Sat, 12 Jul 2014 12:39:45 EST Hi! Hello! New here. I love the HP books. I've even gotten my kids hooked on them. My son's 11th birthday was a HP one (of course) complete with wands from Ollivanders and polyjuice potion. :) Thu, 3 Jul 2014 12:53:43 EST Any RPers? I know I can't be the only HP geek who loves a good text based RP game! Anyone else here indulge in the hobby? I am always looking for other people who can write a couple of paragraphs of decent text per reply, especially if they are a Snape or Lupin. ;) Mon, 25 Nov 2013 12:14:59 EST I love Harry! I am a 42 year old Mom of 1 son(why I started reading Harry) and 7 month old grandson. I have read the books and watched the movies so many times. My fave is Prisoner of Azkaban. Sun, 15 Sep 2013 11:24:50 EST Hello! Just saw this group and I love all things HP. I look forward to "meeting" you all! Fri, 23 Aug 2013 12:08:57 EST Hey Everybody! I can't tell you how happy I am to have found this group LOL! Harry Potter is one of my motivations for losing weight, oddly enough. I ordered a Hufflepuff tee and it's too small, so I'm working on dropping some weight so it will fit and I can wear it comfortably. My name is Adrianne, by the way. I'm a huge fan of Muggle Quidditch and I plan on getting a Harry Potter tattoo in the future. I look forward to being really involved with they group and getting to know some of its members :-) Fri, 2 Aug 2013 15:20:50 EST Hey! I am new to the group, I joined mostly because I love Harry Potter and really want to lose weight. It will be great to chat with anyone about Harry Potter and weight loss tips. Sat, 13 Jul 2013 13:55:32 EST Hello! Hi everyone! I'm Sawyer, a 42 year old married, stay at home mom. My 8 year old son attends public school online so I spend 6-8 hours a day teaching and then I spend another 8-10 hours working on my homework, I attend university online. My days are super busy, but I am NEVER to busy for HP! Wed, 23 Jan 2013 21:08:27 EST Chit Chat! Just checking in! How is everyone? Wed, 16 Jan 2013 10:42:26 EST Finally Introducing Myself I have been a member of the group for awhile, but I have never posted anything. I figured that should probably change, so here I am. <BR> <BR> My HP love started young, when I was ten or eleven and read the first book. At that point, Philosopher's Stone had only come out a short time before and was gaining traction fast in the US. A teacher assigned it to me when she found out I had already read everything on the reading list for the year. It was a great assignment. <BR> <BR> Fast forward... Fri, 11 Jan 2013 14:24:05 EST Not a fan of Harry Potter per se Harry Potter has no extraordinary talent at all. He has fought his way out of a number of tight corners by a simple combination of sheer luck and more talented friends. He is mediocre to the last degree, though as obnoxious and self-satisfied as was his father before him. Tue, 21 Aug 2012 00:59:24 EST New to this team but not to Harry Huzzah, just happened to see this team when browsing around sparkety spark. I've recently returned to the site with a new user name but have been off and on here for some time. I am trying to learn to cook at home more and love the recipe site when I get around to using it. Love Harry Potter and his friends and have read all the books and internalized them permanently, I guess. Too bad no one is writing any new ones. <BR> <BR> Have a great day, all. Mon, 6 Aug 2012 14:46:22 EST Harry Potter Audio Books? Has anyone listened to the Harry Potter series on audio book? I was skeptical but I have to admit, the narrator Jim Dale is BRILLIANT!!! It has been VERY enjoyable. <BR> <BR> Just an idea...great entertainment for monotonous workouts??? <BR> <BR> <em>334</em> <em>275</em> Wed, 18 Apr 2012 10:29:08 EST Favorite Spell?

Sun, 25 Mar 2012 12:08:01 EST Leaky Con Just registered for Leaky Con in Chicago! Anyone else going? I am hoping to be a total of 100 lbs down by then (August 9).

Books and movies both. :) Thu, 8 Mar 2012 20:18:52 EST The Woman in Black movie Have you all been seeing the ads for the Woman in Black movie starring Daniel Radcliffe? It's spooky.

Hi, I'm Veronica, aka dragoncurls, aka twinkletoes, and I am a long time Harry Potter fan, as I imagine most are. <BR> I'm a Ravenclaw (I was actually a hatstall between Ravenclaw and Gryffindor), and my username is willowpixie83 over on Pottermore if you need a friend over there... :) <BR> I actually found this group looking for a muggle Quidditch group here on sparkpeople, as quidders are the most fitness oriented hp fans I've ever known.

I'm Nikki. I'm not reeeally new to sparkpeople...but I'm finally attempting to make use of it with the hope that it will help me achieve my goals. I'm not really sure what else to say...but hi! :) Wed, 31 Aug 2011 23:39:30 EST Which Book is Your Favorite? Prisoner of Azkaban is my favorite of the books. I think Chamber of Secrets is my favorite of the movies. Tue, 2 Aug 2011 16:32:01 EST Hi everyone! I'm Ally. So nice to find this group! Hi guys. I feel like this group was tailor-made for me! thanks so much for creating this group. It's great to know that the daunting and intimidating task of losing weight and being healthy can be done in a fun, supportive way. Dare I say it...I'm even.....hopeful. :-) Would love to meet other members of this group.

My apologies if there is already a thread for this - I looked back through several pages and did some searching, but didn't find anything. I was curious how everyone first found the series. <BR> <BR> For me, I actually was one of those people who refused to read the series for a long time. It wasn't until my sister-in-law persuaded my husband to read the books right after Half-Blood Prince came out that I finally caved. I really expected to hate it and ended up loving it instead! Mon, 27 Jun 2011 19:21:39 EST Happy Harry Potter Fan Hi everyone! I just found out about this team and had to join immediately. I'm a huge Harry Potter geek and love everything to do with the series. I'm glad to find a group of fans. :D Wed, 22 Jun 2011 09:09:54 EST In 2 1/2 days, Rowling is making an announcement.

Hence the screen name. I'm 39 and married to a wonderful woman, Kathy. We have a pug named Coco(2) and 2 cats, Mackenzie (3) and Sneezie (13). I love Harry Potter. I resisted when my mom gave me the first book but after I got through the beginning, I couldn't put them down. I, of course, own every book and every movie. I knew Deathly Hallows was gonna end somewhere in the middle but I was bummed where it did end. I can't wait for the end of it. I will miss Harry and the gang, but I ...

Mon, 24 Jan 2011 14:06:19 EST Other Book Series We are all here because we are hardcore fans of the Harry Potter story series. <BR> <BR> Is there another series of books that you are a big fan of? <BR> <BR> For me it is the Dark Tower series by Steven King. <BR> Thu, 20 Jan 2011 11:07:37 EST I just found the team--this is Brilliant! I've only been Spark Teaming for the past week, and it didn't occur to me to search for Potter fans. When I saw one of my Spark Friends was a member of the HP Challenge team, I went hunting, and here you are--so here I am, too! <BR> <BR> For my first signature block, (it took me a couple days to figure that part of my page out) I chose a couple of my favorite Dumbledore quotes. I plan to change the block periodically, anf sometimes the quotes will not be Potter-related, but I have more of D... Fri, 14 Jan 2011 22:21:43 EST Are you waiting? Is anyone waiting until the second Deathly Hollows movie is released before seeing the first? I had considered it, but as a true HP fan, decided half was better than none. <BR> <BR> While I did not like the concept of two movies at first, the advantage is they present more of the story as written. Tue, 11 Jan 2011 09:45:32 EST Future Books When interviewed by Oprah, J.K Rowlings mentioned that she had considered one or two more books, but at that time, did not think she would write them. <BR> <BR> The Harry Potter story is about his battle with Valdomort, which came to an end in book seven. There are 100's of stories that J.K. could add to the series, but they would most likely not be directed towards the main theme of the story. <BR> <BR> Would people want additional books from J.K. about other adventures around H.P.?

I stumbled across this website and I am so glad because I was having such a hard time getting motivated. I have two frogs that I named Hagrid and Weasely. Tomorrow my wonderful friend is taking me to see HP in 3-D. I'm super excited! Tue, 30 Nov 2010 21:10:27 EST Would you? Sorry, Harry, you know I love you.

So my question is: What will *devastate* you if they leave it out? <BR> <BR> My favorite parts of the book were Snape's WHOLE story, how much each and every character gives for the battle (especially Tonks, Lupin, and Fred Weasley, though I'm sure I'm gonna bawl!!!!), when Harry walked into the forest and had his lost loved ones with him, and of cour...

Fri, 26 Nov 2010 18:28:02 EST Did you scream during the movie? Ok, I am a girl (I know DUH!), but I am a major girlie girl. When I went to the movie the first time I screamed louder than the high school girls I was with. Did you scream during the snake scene? Tue, 23 Nov 2010 09:01:27 EST Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II Will you be at goal weight on July 15 when the movie rolls around? How much do you have to lose to make goal weight by 7/15/2011? <BR> I've been fat for most of the time Harry Potter's epic story has been told, it'd be nice to be average weight for the finale. That being said I won't kill myself if I have a couple of pounds to shed to be at a healthy weight by then! I have give or take 150lbs to lose by 7/15/2010. If I can get within 130lbs, I'll be a happy camper!

Thu, 18 Nov 2010 15:24:40 EST Will you not watch Part I of the last movie till the second one comes out. I think that's what I'm going to do. I know it's going to be tough but I can hold out! I for one can't wait till July 15 'cause I'll watch Part I at home, then Part II in the theaters!

Love the books, I've read mine over 30 times already. I remember when the last book came out, it was on a saturday, and I was worried I wouldn't get one and I reserved 2 copies at 2 different places. I was in college so I had to wait the whole day until I could get my book. I ran to Toy R Us frantically asking where the books were. They probably thought I was a nut. I locked myself in the hot car an read for half an ... Fri, 29 Oct 2010 01:04:52 EST I GOT MY TICKETS!!! for the first half of the final movie!! Wed, 27 Oct 2010 09:34:37 EST Mugglecast?

I'm excited to be joining this team- I had no idea it existed when I first joined spark people!

I am mainly focusing on preparing all my own meals and getting exercise in 5 times a week.

Wed, 20 Oct 2010 22:57:33 EST IPhone/IPod Touch Spell App I don't know if this has been covered and if this is a repeat to what anyone else has posted, my apologies. A while back I found a HP Dueling Spell App where you can learn the spells, practice them, and duel with them. It's really basic, but they've added more spell packs that you can purchase to expand your "wand" knowledge. My son loves it! (Secretly I do too) Sat, 9 Oct 2010 00:56:51 EST QOTD 9/17 - What is your Guilty Pleasure? Harry Potter has been cemented as a well-written and intelligent series; in other words, it's okay to love it! Other things... well, perhaps not so much. <BR> <BR> What is your guilty pleasure? Fri, 17 Sep 2010 12:15:42 EST New Team Plug Hey all, <BR> <BR> I just started a new team called the Fake News Followers for fans of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, and the values they instill.

Are there any Nerdfighters in here? If you know what this means, woohoo! <BR> <BR> If you don't, chances are that you already are a Nerdfighter without realizing it. If you're interested in knowing what the heck I'm talking about, let me know and I will post an applicable link or two! :D Mon, 13 Sep 2010 11:42:53 EST Co-Leaders wanted! Hello, my fellow HP addicts! <BR> <BR> A long time ago, the leader of this site and the leader of SPEW went MIA. I took over both teams because I didn't want someone who didn't LOVE Harry to take it over and let it tank. <BR> <BR> But I have a lot going on, and I'd love to add a co-leader or two! If you're interested, please let me know! <BR> <BR> If you have ideas to make this site more active, please share! <BR> <BR> Thank you!!! <BR> Tracy Mon, 13 Sep 2010 11:32:10 EST Whatcha doing to prepare? Only two more months until the new movie! This just dawned on me yesterday. I've been in an unrelated Harry Potter mood most of the month. I re-watched all the movies and am reading Goblet of Fire for inspiration in my own creative life. <BR> <BR> How about you?? Mon, 13 Sep 2010 11:20:57 EST Hai!! *waves* Hey everyone! I've just joined the team. I have to throw this out there - HP fans are the best. Who wouldn't want to join??? <BR> <BR> A bit about my Harry Potterness: <BR> <BR> * My favorite character is Luna! My second favorite are the Weasley twins - because lets face it, they're almost one person.

Tue, 7 Sep 2010 13:58:05 EST Harry Potter Scrapbook I've wanted an art project for a while and have started making a Harry Potter Scrapbook. It's so much fun! I've found some paper online and have printed out pictures of the castle and different parts of the Wizarding World. For anyone else who adores the books and needs something creative to do, I thought I'd pass on the idea! Fri, 27 Aug 2010 13:12:30 EST H P Fan Check In Very little activity here lately. Are the real Harry Potter fans still stopping by daily? Fri, 27 Aug 2010 08:34:08 EST Reading Harry Potter while using stationary bike? I really want to try to read all seven Harry Potter books before November 19th! :D 1. I don't have a life so I think I can do it. 2. I can try to finish a book before 3 weeks is up...but hey, people read the books in a few days 3. Can I read the books while I use my exercise bike? Maybe. :P <BR> <BR> What do you guys think and ever read a book while using exercise bike? I don't like to exercise unless there is something stimulating me i.e, music, TV XD Wed, 28 Jul 2010 00:07:41 EST I love Harry Potter! I discovered the series in college when my co-workers were reading it! Mind u, these women were in their 40s so I had to find out why they were so besotted by a "kid's" book! Well, I found out in short order!

Can someone just help me out. When I follow some of the recipies on sparkpeople , it mentions 1 cup of this or that. I do have measuring cups,however I was just wondering if a us cup was the same as a uk cup. The reason I was asking was if I make cookies or muffins or what ever I always seem to get a bit less out of the batter even though I try and use a teespoon or table spoon to measure the portions out as per the recipie. So I was maybe thinking that a US cup is maybe more than a uk cu... Thu, 22 Jul 2010 18:37:05 EST Joining in the fun! I'm a major HP fan, and new to sparkpeople. I have read the series at least 7 times and even decorate one of my christmas trees in a HP theme. If I could decorate my house like the Burrow or Hogwarts I would. My kids laugh at me but they like the series too. <BR> <BR> I'm 39, mom to 4 kids ages 18, 15, 12 and 8. I have to lose weight for my health. I have an autoimmune skin blistering disease and the medication I was taking has given me health issues. I have quite a lot of weight to lose.

Sat, 10 Jul 2010 12:55:19 EST Harry potter and the deathly hallows movie Just been on you tube and watched the new movie trailer. Wow it looks amazing !!! I for one am glad it's in two halves to much of a book to squeeze into one 21/2 hour movie. However I will be chomping at the bit to see the second half. Ha ! Here we are in the middle of summer and I'm wishing it was November all ready !!! Wed, 7 Jul 2010 06:57:59 EST 1st part of target reached Just wanted to share because I am so excited ! I have just weighed myself and I have lost a stone !!! ( or 14 pounds ) . It has come off slower this time round but feel that is better as it's more likely to stay off this time. So chuffed !!!!

We both want to rush down to see the new park but history on new parks has taught us to wait until the rush is over and the bugs are worked out. We will likely wait for off season in Feb-Mar so we can better enjoy the adventure. Sat, 12 Jun 2010 10:30:28 EST My sister is here!!! YAY!!! Ladies, I want you meet my sister!!

I'm Paige and have been a Harry Potter fan for a few years. I saw the first two movies and then read all the books up to The Order of the Phoenix. I loved the Prisoner of Azkaban movie and Goblet of Fire book. Those are my favorites. I actually still have yet to read the final book, so I'll be avoiding all those links like the plague. :P <BR> As far as favorite characters, I just can't decide. <BR> Looking forward to chatting with you all. Tue, 25 May 2010 12:35:22 EST Harry Potter merchandise Is anyone else but me obsessed with the Harry Potter t-shirts from Warner Brothers? Right now I'm wearing the Levicorpus where on the back it says - upside down - Now you can read this! <BR> I also have a Muggle tee, a DA tee and a I solumnly swear tee. <BR> <em>246</em> <BR> But it doesn't stop there - I even have Dumbledore's wand and my son has Harry's but that was just an excuse to get that one, too! <BR> Go Harry!

The next time I need a Potter fix, Harry will be putting on his trainers instead of his sneakers. Can't wait! <BR> <BR> They also had a French version of one of the books which I almost bought, but as I don't read French I decided to use some of the little bit of self-control I have and leave it behind.

Fri, 30 Oct 2009 14:26:57 EST New to the Team Hi! <BR> <BR> I'm a Harry Potter fan who loves both the books and the movies. <BR> <BR> I am a Slytherin who adores her Potions Master, Severus Snape, and finds that the Weasley Twins are the most adorable people ever. I am a mixture of a Slytherin and a Gryffindor really, but find myself leaning more towards the Snape side of it all, I just don't follow the Dark Lord. <BR> <BR> I just love the world of Harry Potter and in many ways wish I had gotten my Hogwarts letter at 11, but oh well.

I stopped because they closed down the site. Within a year after that I was overwhelmed, anyway, so would have had to quit had they not. It was then that I got re-married and had my last 2 (a set of twins). <BR> <BR> If not for Harry Potter I would likely have more help around here, but my oldest probably would still be struggling to read.

Tue, 8 Sep 2009 17:47:49 EST Harry Potter Edition of Clue Recently, I picked up the new Harry Potter Edition of the board game Clue. This weekend I finally had a chance to play it. It was a lot of fun. It has twists unlike regular Clue; doors to different rooms close, much like the staircases move; the death mark appears which can cause you to lose House Points (if you lose all your House Points, you're out of the game). Lots of other fun stuff. <BR> <BR> Has anyone else played this version??? I can't wait to play it again! Mon, 7 Sep 2009 23:00:38 EST i'm new to the team :) Hi. My name is Nicki. I'm from MN.

I would guess when the groups are large they only sort a couple of volunteers. But there were only five in our group. My DH, my son Geoffey,myself, and one other couple. So everyone got to sit on the stool and put on the hat. My husband and son both were sorted into Ravenclaw. And the hat put me in Slytherin!

Sat, 25 Jul 2009 22:51:50 EST Cook Once and Eat Twice We are busy ladies and let's face it we like food, especially good food. You can get boneless skinless chicken breast or tenders and marinate, grill, and have enough for these recipes. Better to cook once and eat off that one large batch several times. Helps keep your meal plan going and keeps you on track even on the busiest of days. If you grill several pieces of chicken you can use freeze 1 or 2 pieces in small freezer bags to take down as you need them. <BR> <BR> This is taken from Todd ...

My favorite moment was when Harry has drunken the Felix Felicis and they have just buried Aragog. Hagrid and Slughorn are singing about "Odo" and Slughorn remembers a fish that Lily gave him. He does a FANTASTIC job being drunk and remembering the good times. When he gives Harry the memory, he sounds so aged and weary. It was a beautiful scene. <BR> <BR> The worst was when Ginny and Harry have their snog. It made absolutely no sense that she would take him to the ROR and drop the book o...

So, interracial relationships, it's okay for Ginny to date Dean Thomas who is black, so I figured that it was okay for Ron to date Lavender Brown who was ALSO black. Right?

I love Harry Potter. My mom gave me the first book when it first came out, but I didn't read it until about a year ago. Then I breezed through the rest and was so disappointed when I was done with all of them! Can't wait for the new movie in July and the rest of them, too. Tue, 23 Jun 2009 07:35:59 EST Harry Potter the Musical Okay, I was on mugglenet for a change and they showed this link to a fan-made Harry Potter musical. Yes, I was skeptical but I went and watched it anyhow. Guys, this is not to be missed. It's so funny. There were no parts where I wasn't laughing. They basically condensed all the books into one plot. Yes, some of it is naughty PG-13 stuff but you have just got to see this! <BR> <BR> <link><BR>C6B6D83E45245 </link> Mon, 22 Jun 2009 13:59:13 EST QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS... 7th WEEK Today...

For me - each time the next movie is a few months away, I start listening to the CD's and watching the movies to get refreshed. It's like reading them for the first time all over. I just finished Goblet of Fire and have a few weeks left to get year 5 & 6 read before the movie comes out. Can't wait - I'll take the day off from work to see it. <em>437</em> Tue, 16 Jun 2009 14:41:09 EST QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS... 6th WEEK Our next set of 3 questions deal with OBJECTS- not family, loved ones, or pets... but 'things' like a SPECIFIC item TREASURED by you when you were a child (not to say that you still aren't- INSIDE) and ANOTHER item you treasured when you were a teen.

I'm torn between two -- a pedaler and a stepper. Either can be used while sitting in a chair (knitting?). The stepper is $5 less than the pedaler, but I really don't know if there's much of a difference otherwise. <BR> <BR> Does anybody have any input? Probably just about everybody knows more about this than I do, and I'd appreciate the help. Wed, 18 Mar 2009 22:06:30 EST Half Blood Prince- anyone read this?

For example, I knitting the bookmarks for my books using the colors of the various houses. I have also made some of the dishes mentioned in the books. Some are found in English cookbooks and you can figure out which ones by reading the recipes. I love the idea of having some of these carryovers in our lives.

It's a book by Melissa from the Leaky Cauldron, about HP's publication, the fandom, etc. I'm about 100 pages into it, and it's interesting. I'm not crazy about Melissa's writing style (chapter one is case in point -- she writes the whole chapter without telling us what the hell she's talking about until the last sentence: the announcement of the DH release date. You can guess what she's on about, but it's still annoying.) She tends to jump around a lot -- I prefe... Wed, 19 Nov 2008 07:33:07 EST Off Topic Help Needed.

Yesterday Obama met with Bush in the Oval Office. <BR> <BR> I just had the funny image of Bush saying "and here's this portrait - it may move, and sometimes someone will come and ask you for a meeting" <BR> <BR> It gave me a good giggle. Tue, 11 Nov 2008 15:37:10 EST Questions to ponder from Deathly Hallows... I just re-read for the umpteeth time Deathly Hallows. Here are two questions that hopefully you all can answer: <BR> <BR> - Bill is Secret-Keeper for Shell Cottage. How could Ron hide there when we left Harry and Hermione, and how could Dobby take Dean, Luna, and Mr. Ollivander there? And how could Harry and Dobby then arrive there? <BR> <BR> - At the wedding, JKR wrote that Harry took an extra-large dose of the Polyjuice Potion to disguise himself. In GoF, Barty Jr. transformed from Mad-E... Sun, 9 Nov 2008 12:57:27 EST Goblet of Fire Hat, I'm just like Hermione! I have been teaching myself to knit for a couple months now, and i finally finshed a hat i've been working on since day one! <BR> It is a hat based on one wore by Ginny Weasley (Bonnie Wright) in the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire movie!

Anyone out there going to the Harry Potter Symposium in San Francisco? It is called Azkatraz--very fun time will be had by all. The dates are July 17 to 20, 2009. Mon, 8 Sep 2008 17:48:01 EST Howdy! Hello there! <BR> <BR> I'm very new to Sparkpeople, but I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. I'm a 30 something mom of two from Texas (hence the screenname - txhpfan - creative, right?). <BR> <BR> My daughter is a competition dancer, and many nights I find myself sitting in the studio lobby. That, and some "stress eating" and too much fast food due to some health issues with my son has led me to need to lose a considerable amount of weight. <BR> <BR> I'm a huge HP fan. I eve...
