    I am on week three of this darned chest cold. I spent a few days in bed having a Harry Potter marathon which we usually do during the holidays anyway. I am looking forward to starting on this challenge!

    Okay, I admit it. Christmas, my birthday and New Years were not pleasant for me weight loss wise. But New Year eh? I started the Hogwarts weight loss challenge too, so hoping these are helpful to keep me on track ;) Started out 2017 with crappy morning shake, ate well, no blended coffee (sob!) and got some exercise and lots of water in. So here's for day 2! And I'm starting Sorcerer's Stone on audiobook today, Stephen Fry edition (I've only listened to the amazing Jim Dale). So I will officially be starting this challenge ;)

    I got back this week from Christmas traveling.... I spent about 3 weeks all together in four countries eating amazing food and drinking mulled wine, so I was a bit scared of the the scale. It looks like all the walking helped balance all the delicious food though.
    Sw: 168
    Last weigh in 30/11 : 164.5
    Today: 161
    Ps goal weight: 161

    So I've reached PS goal weight and I'm starting on CoS!

    CoS goal: 153
    Lbs away: 8

    This is a very interesting challenge and different from any other I have seen.

    CW: 216
    PS Goal: 209
    CoS Goal: 201
    PoA Goal: 190
    GoF Goal: 175
    OotP Goal: 156
    HBP Goal: 143
    Reevaluate here as this is close to my goal weight

    DH Goal: 130


    Good luck to everybody!

    ~ Truth ~

    I was at a plateau which finally broke and I lost 2.8 lbs this week. I am currently 213.2, so another 4.2 lbs to reach my PS goal.

    I wish you all strength, perseverance, and success with your goals!
