    * This is my first 5% Challenge and my first participation in a Group.
    * For fun I enjoy board games, NY Times games, reading, browsing, walking, family time with husband, children, and grandchildren and visiting with friends. I enjoy the ocean and the mountains.
    * I live in Portland, Oregon but am in the process of moving to Forest Grove, Oregon.
    *My health/fitness goals for this season is consistency - to strengthen habits that will allow me to to reach and maintain a weight that will make my liver happy.
    * Just about anyone would describe me as quiet, helpful, progressive Christian and a numbers nerd.
    * My favorite TV program (early 1950s) was "Mr. Wizard". My favorite radio program now is '"Wait, Wait, don't tell me".
    * Before I had kids I was much more adventuresome - climbed mountains and tried parachuting and river running with friends.

    Hi everyone,

    This is my first challenge on MFP so it will be a good learning experience

    At the moment I don’t do a lot for fun, between working, exercising and renovating our home I’m too tired to do much but watch tv.

    I am English and live in the North level with Newcastle

    My fitness goal is to get my back strong enough to carry a diving tank as I love to dive- but I have had lots of back injuries so need to be careful. I would also like to loose another stone or possibly a tad more

    My cat would describe me as annoying and slow and not psychic enough

    I wore shell suits in neon colours many years ago

    My favourite kids tv shows were fraggle rock and he man

    Two fun things, I live in the middle of nowhere and I’m a Trekkie
