    How many 5% Challenges have you done? I started the Challenges in 2010. This is 54 for me.

    What do you like to do for fun? Dance to live bands, listen to audiobooks, Happy Color app, Octordle, play cards especially canasta and 10 card crib, RV travel, try new recipes, meet new people, read online news, weekly hikes, explore new places, have dinner parties, watch 90 Day Fiance, plan trips, travel.

    What major city do you live in or near? State? Vancouver Canada

    What are you health/fitness goals for this season? I had Covid and need to regain my strength and endurance. Get back hiking. I lost 90 pounds and regained 30. I want that 30 pounds gone!

    How would your pet or friend describe you? Friend - Adventurer Lynn, Dog 'where are we going?'

    2 fun things about you? I am always looking for my reading glasses and phone. Often the glasses are on top of my head and the phone is in my back pocket. Why don't I look there first? Since I had Covid I don't remember names very well, so it can be awkward and funny.

    Set small goals and build on your successes.

    How many 5% Challenges have you done? This will be my 3rd round.

    What do you like to do for fun? Spending time with my grandsons, gardening, reading, exercising, word games/puzzles.

    What major city do you live in or near? State? 10 miles west of Albany, NY

    What are you health/fitness goals for this season? To continue losing weight, improve my A1C and cholesterol levels, and exercise daily.

    How would your pet or friend describe you? Loyal, honest, loving, organized

    2 fun things about you? My husband calls me “Sheldon” sometimes, after the character on the Big Bang Theory. I think it drive him a little crazy when my touch of OCD kicks in.
    Most of my structured exercise takes place in my living room, in front of the TV, in the form of low impact aerobics or walking. I think I spend more time than I should perusing exercise videos on YouTube to find ones that I like. The ones with terrible music or too much chatter make me nuts. I have made multiple libraries of the ones that I like.

    Anything else you would like to share? I wish for everyone to have nothing but success with this round of the challenge.

    Anything else you would like to share? I was a leader of the seasonal challenges before stepping down before the IBC back in the Spring to Summer (I think). I decided for the fall challenge to come back and love being a member while I did enjoy being a leader I think it took a toll on my own journey. For the moment I'm doing at home workouts written by my former coach since I hit a deer almost 2 weeks ago I'm OK was just shaken up but my car is totaled and waiting for the insurance company to make the decision so I can either get a new car or have mine fixed.

    How many 5% Challenges have you done? hmmm a few now

    What do you like to do for fun? play games, read, dance in the livingroom to good music, eat good food, enjoy walks at the river and sunsets and landing planes.

And there are many more to learn from.

    How would your pet or friend describe you? Sadly Amigo, the cat, would not like me right now as he is very sick and needs meds and has to take them, so I am the giver of the yuk ... otherwise, it's I am the treat person. My friends describe me as dependable, loving and kind, but also serious.

    2 fun things about you? I am too serious most of the time to be funny. I can't think of a thing really.
