Trisha | 31440 comments what do you think about changing this to the 18th?

Gisbelle | 27299 comments that's great. I am getting a overwhelmed with all the buddy reads and the challenges :) So 18 sounds perfect.

Trisha | 31440 comments just finished the first chapter
too cute!

I'm just starting the 2nd chapter

and the weigh in (view spoiler)

but their middle name exchange (view spoiler)
I love his name!

hers is pretty too! Annabel

oh and her mom (view spoiler)


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I'm at work so barely read, but I love how it starts in the dedication. I feel for Annabel and how she is so insecure with herself due to her weight. I can totally identify with being with your trainer, not wanting to hear your weight or body fat, etc.

I love the name Tegan, very unique.

I'm wondering what part Tegan's brother might play in all this.


Gisbelle | 27299 comments lol... Jerk McJerkerson :) Love this!


message 17: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 3 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments right?! That was funny! LOL!

I just finished chapter 3.
off to cook dinner and then I'll read more :D


Gisbelle | 27299 comments That'll give me time to catch up :)

Speaking of dinner, I am hungry.


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Good, I'm not so far behind then!

This book is so true to an overweight person's thought processes! I've been like Annabel where I'll step on the scale, get off, back on, and accept the lower weight. Lol I KNOW the mind of an overweight person on a diet! Lol

We STILL are having Internet problems! I'm MORE than frustrated! I can't read the spoilers or make them. Grrrr


Gisbelle | 27299 comments finished chapter 2

I agreed! Only boxers needs to weigh :)

Her mother totally irritates me. How can a mother act that way?

Love her father, though.

Curse the Internet problems :(

Anyway, here what Trisha wrote:

I'm just starting the 2nd chapter

and the weigh in [ Ugh! What gym still does that? I had a trainer for almost 2 years and she NEVER weighed me - especially in front of the whole gym. We didn't need the scale to see the difference.... (hide spoiler)]

but their middle name exchange [ is too cute! Edgar! Tegan Edgar.... :D (hide spoiler)]
I love his name!

hers is pretty too! Annabel

oh and her mom [ clearly sucks. Who does digs on their own daughter and their weigh :( (hide spoiler)]

Trisha | 31440 comments yay! chapter 6 makes me happy!!!

How far should I go today, ladies?

should I go to 10 chapters, stop here??


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I know, right? I'm also at chapter 7 but not sure I'll be able to read anymore tonight. I won't be able to read thru ch 10 myself.


Gisbelle | 27299 comments I'm in chapter 4. Nothing happens much :( a bit bored. Let's read til chapter 10.


message 25: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 3 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments okay, chapter 10 it is!! :D i'll be back!


message 26: by Sarah (new) - added it

Sarah (simplysarah13) | 315 comments Recently, I've found myself on a kick to where I've been watching The Biggest Loser. I caught an episode in the middle of the season and became hooked. After I read the synopsis about this book, it put me in the mind of it! I'm now definitely going to try to read it sometime!!

Gisbelle | 27299 comments Trisha, I finished chapter 5. The scene where Annabell accidentally punched Tegan was so hilarious :) I am a bit sleepy now. I'll read more when I wake up.


message 29: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 3 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments lol wasn't that great!?! Ha! They talk about that a lot!

I just finished chapter 10 and her MOM! Ugh!!!!!! :( I dislike her EVERY chapter!


Gisbelle | 27299 comments I hate her mother too. What she said to that lady behind Anabell's back is so not cool :(

I am in chapter 8, by the way. I might not be able to read much today. I need to edits for pictures for team challenge.


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I only made it to ch 8 & fell asleep! Lol

I dislike Annabel's mother too. She's not supportive and it seems she only cares about appearances and what's on the outside. It's mothers like her who make overweight girls feel unworthy.

I loved the scene where Tegan calls Annabel "kick ass hot" and she can't handle it so halls off and gives h a black eye. He's only pressed but not mad! Lol Does he have the hots for her?

My students will be working on essays for Odyssey today, so I won't get in any reading time till after school around 3:30. You're gonna leave me in the dust! Lol


Gisbelle | 27299 comments I loved that scene to Vic.

It is true that Trisha is going to finish first. Again. I am going to be a bit busy too.


message 33: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 3 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments lol Done

it was cute but not my favorite from this author so far.

let me know when you ladies are done


Gisbelle | 27299 comments I finished :( I didn't like it. Too slow, and boring.


message 35: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 3 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments I agree.....it was pretty slow and kind of boring

but I did like some of their bantor

sorry you weren't a fan Gisbelle.
