Talking Harry Potter Weight Loss Challenge

The final Harry Potter movie is being released the second full week of July in most of the world. I thought it might be fun to do a short challenge that will end the week the movie opens. If we start weighing in next week, that'll be 12 weeks.

Your day of weigh-in doesn't matter, since the movie opens on different days in different countries. Just pick a day that works for you, and weigh in once a week.

My goal:

April 24-30:
May 1-7:
May 8-14:
May 15-21:
May 22-28:
May 29-June 4:
June 5-11:
June 12-18:
June 19-25:
June 26-July 2:
July 3-9:
July 10-16:

Anybody want to join?

Linda ... I am SOOO jealous! I want to go so bad. My kids think I'm crazy. LOL They'd rather do Disney. We are hoping to go to Orlando late summer / early fall. Might have to push it back though so we can save up and go to both parks. LOL

Ooo, I'd love to join, what a fun idea! I can't believe it's already time to be thinking about the last movie - I still remember the first time I started reading Harry Potter way back in high school!

April 20 - Actual: 242
April 27 - Goal: 239, Actual:

You know what? What the heck! I'm not a big HP fan; I've only seen the first movie and read a few of the first books, but this looks like fun regardless and it's just starting, so count me in!

12 weeks at hopefully 2 pounds a week = 24 pounds.

I'll start on Sunday, as that's easiest for me and kind of is a "fresh start" rather than already most of the way through the week

It was AWESOME!! You have to break your weight loss regiment to try the butterbeer... sooooooo good!
I had never been to Universal in Florida so I like a lot of the roller coasters. The new Harry Potter ride was really cool, but the dueling dragons from The Goblet of Fire was a better ride. I guess it is a ride that was there before but revamped for Harry.

I am so in.... DH and I love the HP series and I could use some accountability over the next few months.

We leave next week on vacation and will be gone for almost 3 weeks, 15 nights of it on a cruise. My plan is to stay 90% OP and increase activity; when I've done that in the past I've always come home with a small loss, so I hope to have the same experience this time.

We were actually planning to go to WWoHP at Universal at the beginning of the trip, but I understand it's been an absolute zoo the past several weeks with Spring Breaks going on, so we decided to use some free passes I have for Sea World the day we're in Orlando instead. WWoHP will still be there the next time we get down to Florida.

Goal: 216 pounds

April 24: 239.5 Uggh... heading the wrong way, but totally OP, so it's gotta be water.
April 27: 235.5 MUCH better... that ugly water weight is gone.
May 18: 235.5 After a long vacation, I'm not complaining!
May 25: 234.0
May 29:
June 5:
June 12:
June 19:
June 26:
July 3:
July 10:
