Responsibility 199, what is it?

Responsibility 199 is a belief; I believe that to be healthy and to increase my longevity I need to weigh 199 pounds or less...
Responsibility 199 is a need; I need to reduce my weight, reduce my percentage of body fat, and the elevated threat of disease my present condition presents...
Responsibility 199 is a mission; I recognize that achieving 199 will be a challenge, perhaps the hardest I have ever undertaken...
Responsibility 199 is a commitment; I acknowledge that I must commit to action, commit to change, commit to myself and those I love to achieve this mission, to increase my longevity...
Responsibility 199 is ME.

Evenings & Me

I am at most hungry in the evenings. On any day, before beginning Responsibility 199 and the few days since, on any day I can eat responsibly with little effort from the time I wake until the time I get off work. But once the work day is done my gut screams for food. Why is that?

On most days I cook dinner. My wife cooks just fine but she dislikes cooking and since I enjoy it I usually do it. When I do cook I usually cheat while cooking. A taste here, a bite there, and by the time the meal is served I've likely eaten have a meal nibbling. Why can't I wait for dinner to be served?

When dinner is served my portions are hefty and helpings usually two. As I'm heaping it onto my plate or shveling it into my mouth I think to myself and know what I am doing is wrong. Samething when I a nibble while cooking; I get it that I am doing myself wrong. So why do I willingly over indulge in the evenings?

I'm not sure if there is an answer to these "Whys" other that I do it because I want to eat & I can.

Regardless of why I do so I cannot do so going forward or Responsibility 199 will never be realized.

Responsibility 199... Gotta Do It!!


  1. I haven't read your more recent posts but I know for me if I don't eat a good amount of calories during the day BEFORE I get home from work I am the same way wanting to nibble nibble nibble.

  2. Dawn, nibble nibble nibble... I hear you there. My nibbles tended to be chomp chomp chomp at times too. My eating smaller meals and adding reasonable snacks between meals seems to have helped curb that nibble/chomp attack after work.
