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.

  5. Congrats, and great photo! A weird place to post this, but I'm interested in your greek yogurt dressing recipe. Would be grateful if you forwarded it on.

  6. FiT & Sharon,I have been full of big cheers and expressions all night and into today.

    Dave, I posted this in your blog but decided to also put it up here in case anyone else wanted to check it out...

    Greek Yogurt Dressing:
    Juice of 1 lemon (fresh is better than concentrated juice)
    1/2 cup Greek yogurt (fat free or not as you like)
    1 small-medium clove garlic, minced or if desired finely chopped into a paste
    1/4 cup EV Olive Oil
    Salt and ground black pepper to taste
    Mix it all up & enjoy!

    Now that is the recipe as written & given to me. I usually never follow a recipe to the letter. For this one I found the 1/4 cup EV Olive Oil
    to be a bit much so I use half that. Sometimes I squirt in a bit of brown or yellow mustard for added flavor or color. I've used both Olive & Sesame oil in the same batch, if you know sesame oil it has a bold flavor so use just a bit in place of some of the olive oil.

    So this recipe really gives you a base to work from and play with.
