    Hey, Gryffs! I'm officially demoted to Deputy Head of Gryffindor.

    Collett (Letty_c) is taking over for me as Head of Gryffindor. Kelly (kellyisfat, from Ravenclaw) is taking over for me as Headmistress.

    This weekend is your starting weight for June, last week was an 'off' week.

    I'll still be around, but not very much for the next month or so. Behave for Collett ;)

    Sorry this is kind of late!!!

    June Week 1:

    (Starting after check-in between 6/1-6/4

    and ending with check-in between 6/8-6/11)


    OWL (exercise): Clock Lunge
    Each day you reach your daily goal you earn 5 OWLs, you earn 3 OWLs for reaching half way to your goal, and 1 OWL for trying but not reaching half way.

    NEWT (food): Measurements! I know this is not food-related, but bear with me. I would like to start having the first week's NEWTs be to take measurements for a while. So often we focus on the scale and forget to look at the other changes our bodies make.
    Take as many measurements as you want. MFP has some basic ones when you go to 'check-in' but you can add as many as you want. I suggest picking the areas that want to see progress in most right now and measure those. You'll be able to see your progress in a month when we take them again!
    You earn 5 NEWTs if you record your measurements, and 5 NEWTs if you post them in the Common Room to hold yourself accountable. 10 NEWTs possible for this week.

    SPEW: Earn 1 point every time you post something encouraging or motivating or how your day is going in the Common Room (ANYTHING BUT A CHECK-IN POST COUNTS TOWARD YOUR SPEWs).
    Up to 5 points possible per day, 35 points possible for the week.
    ***Remember to double check the dates for this challenge! Don't start early and lessen your progress for the current week!

    Here is the link to the chart to check in :

  • Hi there! I just discovered this group, and I have to say I'm thrilled. I'm a HARDCORE Potter nerd. I do text based rp and everything, so adding a little potter to my weight loss seems like a great idea :) I'm always, ALWAYS a Gryffindor if the character I'm playing is anything like me (and I'm a gryffindor on Pottermore) so when I thought about it well...there wasn't much thinking to do. I'm excited to get going with y'all. I've read through the info on the group, but I'm still a little confused...do we check in on the google doc?

    Second question where is everybody its getting kinda lonely here in the commoms room....
    Been travelling a lot, now going through a bit of a rough patch, busy at work, fell off the wagon, somehow managed to put weight on, and am generally struggling to get motivated.

    But I am still here and I will be back to my old self soon, a few nights of undisturbed sleep will do me the world of good. :)
  • awesome, well I'm starting on my way to build up to what I want, I'm doing a few different things, working to cut down on carbs and get more protein in (I need to figure out what is a healthy amount for me, how many calories I should be eating etc) but that can be dicey because I'm an icthyo-vegetarian, meaning I eat fish eggs and dairy but not meat! I already don't eat much in the way of carbs, so I just...am not eating enough in general I think, so my metabolism is slow because I just...don't eat? I dunno it's weird. I'm working on building up my exercise plan (woooo) so I'll try and throw in the owl exercise every week for sure! This is gonna be fun I can tell!

    Hello everyone!

    I hope everyone has been well! I've been away due to my very random schedules and just lack of motivation to exercise and monitor what I am eating :( Yesterday was my birthday and I decided to weigh myself (not sure why I chose my birthday to do so >_< thought I should see where I am at at 28)... I put back all of my weight back on. I'm pretty bummed out at my performance. I do good for a few weeks them it always goes in the toilet because of stress, lack of time and money :sad: ; I get discouraged quick unfortunately.

    Anyone got some good tips to getting back on track? I usually start with baby steps, but maybe I need to switch to hardcore boot-camp mode? :frown: I certainly don't want to tackle more then I can chew, but I wanna lose weight and start feeling better about myself
