    6/12 SW: 202.2
    GW: 195.2lbs

    6/16: 200lbs. Sweet progress! Previously doing Zumba, but this week I started Beachbody's Insanity. Only on day 4 and it is kicking my butt, but I feel like I'm getting stronger. Not dieting so much as trying to control my portions better, drink more water, and eat better quality foods.
    6/25: 197lbs :) Doing pretty good. This past week I've been a bit off schedule with my workouts but making it up with lots of walking. Also, even though I ate out a few times, I tried to make healthy choices and drink lots of water. Two more pounds before I can move on to CoS :)
    7/11: 195.2 is exactly what the scale said this morning, and exactly how much I need to weigh in order to move on to CoS! Changed up my calorie intake and so far so good.

    CoS 251 pages equal 8.
    Lose 8lbs from the completion of the PS challenge.
    GW: 187.2
    7/24: 194.4 still truckin along

    Lose 11lbs from the completion of the CoS challenge.
    GW: 176.2

    GW: 161.2

    OotP 766 pages equal 19
    Lose 19lbs from the completion of the GoF challenge.
    GW: 142.2

    HBP 607 pages equal 13.

    Count me in. (Cursed Child isn't canon. Fight me.) However I don't have *that* much to lose now so I may be able to call it quits at Book 3 (which is still my favorite, because Sirius Black & time travel are my jam).

    CW: 151.8(!)
    GW Sorceror's/Philosopher's Stone: 145.8
    GW Chamber of Secrets: 138.8 (Honestly I would be ecstatic to get here)
    GW Prisoner of Azkaban: 127.8 (I would be thin as a freaking rail)

    Harry Potter Challenge!

    150.4 today. It's a modest loss, but I'll take it. 5.6 more lbs until I've earned Sorceror's/Philosopher's Stone.
