I think you may be too kind to Caps assuming they won't self destruct again before reaching the finals.

I'm 5'7", 165lbs at the moment.
Might not seem like much, but I have felt "fat" since I eclipsed 150lbs about 6-7 years ago. In high school, I weighed about 175 lbs and felt really fat. I dropped 35lbs in one summer before college, which was really hard but at age 18 that's a lot easier to do than it is now that I'm in my 30s.
The past 18 months, I've been going to the gym about twice a week, I lift for about 30 minutes then do a 3 mile run in about 23.5 minutes. I started out at 170lbs when I started back in the gym routine, and really haven't lost that much weight because that really hasn't been my goal, but am lifting a lot more weight than I ever could and a lot stronger.
However, I've still got a bit of a gut... I blame my eating habits. I love fast food (though it's usually roast beef or grilled chicken sandwiches), and I have this awful habit of eating chips at night right before bedtime. I can easily eat half a bag of Doritos 3-4 nights a week - if not for that, I think I'd be able to drop down to 150 pretty easily, or even down to 140 if I wanted to. At one time I dropped down to 125 in college, when I was running 5 miles at a time several times per week. But I know I can't do that anymore, I just don't have the time. Plus it seems like every couple months I am getting sick with something that sets me back and I miss a week at the gym... heck, I've had two bouts with pneumonia since November - it really makes it harder to run like I was and I've actually cut back to 2 miles at a time most days now because I just can't handle more at the pace I like to run.
Anyways, my goal is by June to be down to 150 lbs. If I don't get there I won't be too upset, but I should get close... I have always believed that the way is to eat less (and better), but stay active.
Dropped my Yoda preorder, hoping me waitlist for the exclusive goes through. Didnt want to get stuck with the regular and the exclusive. Regular has not sold out yet so i can always just reorder it.
I am even more impressed with the fact that so few actors were changed throughout the films. Dumbledore is the biggest one, but that couldn't have been helped. The only casting change I can think of in this movie was Hermoine's parents who had a brief appearance in Chamber of Secrets.
Help me out here but wasn't the Young Tom Riddle two different actors as well? The one from Chamber of Secrets should have been nearly the same age as the one in Slughorn's memory.
EDIT: I just chedked IMBD and they were in fact different actors from the Chamber of Secrets and Half Blood Prince. I suppose there could have been an age difference between the two Tom Riddle's but I still think they'd be nearly the same "age" in both memories/incarnations. Of course since the movies were 6 years apart it may not have been practical to try and use the same actor again.
