    This is such an amazing idea! I love Harry Potter and breaking it down this way gives me nice mini goals to work towards. Coincidentally it's almost the exact amount of weight that I'd like to lose too.

    Since I clocked in at my highest weight last month, I'll start from there.

    Hi @stephhcharlenee & welcome!!

    To add a gif you just click the Picture icon (next to the black sheet of paper) above the comment box - paste the URL of your chosen gif in and MFP will insert it :)

    Think it only works on the desktop version though, I haven't tried it in Mobile!

    I have to admit I have never read any of the Harry Potter books. However I was meaning to for a long time so maybe this is a good opportunity. I'll go to the library tomorrow and get a copy!
