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 71 - 27% Progress

Last weekend I didn't have a weigh in due to our trip to St. Louis. I considered weighing in on Monday but decided against it; just leave the scale where it be there on the floor and keep on working at it towards the next weigh in.

Today is that next weigh in and my goal for today is 288.5 which would be 3 pounds less than my last weigh in 2 weeks ago. Lets get right down to the root shall we...

The scale told me I've lost 27% of the weight I desire to lose. That is 32.5 pounds in TEN weeks; 4 of them the past two weeks. Today I weighed in at 287.5 pounds.

Oh Yeah! That leaves me 3.5 pounds away from 284 which is a milestone, it is when I will be 30% of the way to weighing 199. I can see 284, it's so close I can smell it; even taste it. It shall be mine!

What milestone is up next for you?
Can you see it, smell it, taste it?
Let me know, I want to be here to celebrate with you when you make it yours.

Oh, my Streeeeeak-o-meter, I am leaving at 0 for now as I didn't live up to all commitments last week. Ate some snacks after dinner a time or two last week and I slacked on the water on others. That may sound a bit anal but I have to wonder, what if I didn't do those things I said I wouldn't? Would today's weigh in have been better?

Responsibility 199 - Gotta Do It!
