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...

    Welcome new people! I'm so glad you're all here! :smile:

    @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.

    Welcome @kailey_watson ! Of course you can join :heart:

    I 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!

    Hope everyone had a great holiday that celebrates it! I apparently celebrated too much and had a 1.5lb gain this morning. Need to get my hind end in gear so I make my first goal!
