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.

Day 22 - 8% Progress

First of all - Happy Mother's Day to all; have a great time today giving Mom's everywhere a big Thank You for all they do.

So lets get down to brass tacks, today is weigh in day; Today I weigh 310 pounds...
After three weeks I am 10 pounds lighter than when I started, 3 of those pounds were lost this past week.
After three weeks I am 8% of the way to my goal - Oh Yeah!

Achieved my exercise goals I set for myself at the beginning of the week; to exercise at least 4 times, two of each cardio and weights. It is going to be a busy week this week so I am going to maintain that as a 'minimum' standing weekly exercise goal for now. Certainly I hope to raise the bar and increase the amount of exercise I do in a few weeks after I've proven to myself I can at least meet this goal consistently.

My gorgeous wife & I are on our way out for a walk now, so off to a good start on that goal for this my fourth week.

Again, Happy Mother's Day!
