Because I like Harry Potter and I like losing weight and I like FOOOOOD... this started life on my personal goals blog and I thought, well, there are lots of Harry Potter fans milling about on here... so... here we go.

**Rules**

Enjoy your gosh-darn selves.

Check in here with your progress/Harry Potter gifs (you get Brownie points from me if you include gifs of Lucius Malfoy or Barty Crouch Jr.)

There is no time limit! Time limits are for Muggles.

Page totals are for the first UK editions (because that's I what I own), and according to Wikipedia.

On with the fun...

Total loss that this challenge goes up to is 86lbs - if you have fewer pounds to lose, just follow it up to wherever will take you nearest your goal

937Member Member, Premium Posts:937Member456Member Member Posts:456MemberStarting Weight is 205, so heading to 198 for the first book...what a great excuse to re-read the series also!

159Member Member Posts:159MemberI have a lot of weight to lose, so I'll throw in Cursed Child in the end. Which I preordered and waited in line for, but still haven't finished because the play style fanfiction writing makes me sad and mad....but anyways.

I will be listening on audiobook, because I sadly haven't much time for actual real page reading these days.

604Member Member Posts:604Member@Boyer6605 - if you copy and paste the link of the gif you want to share with us, then above your post click the black piece of paper icon (next to the smiley face and two interlinked chains) - you can stick the link in the image URL box.

604Member Member Posts:604MemberI hope everyone's having a great week this week I keep peeking at the scales but since it's not Official Weigh-In Day for me I'm resisting any updates!

604Member Member Posts:604MemberWeight is the same today... water weight and the fact I lost 7lbs total in my first couple of weeks here

I feel pretty today though

937Member Member, Premium Posts:937Member4Member Member, Premium Posts:4Member604Member Member Posts:604MemberBUT I did lose 3lbs, which leaves me with 4lbs more to lose to complete Philsopher's Stone.
