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 100 - Monday

Well, has it been 100 days already? Assuming I know how to count the answer is yes. Since I am on vacation there was no weigh in for me yesterday so I am not certain just where I stand at the century mark.
If 100 days ago you told me that I would weigh 41+ less in 100 days I'd have laughed at you out of one side of my mouth & prayed for your words out of the other.

Next up is the next 100 days, where will I be on day 200 which is sometime in November? That seems so far away. But, we all know it will be here in the blink of a Stooges eye. Not a moment to waste in getting after them days. I am typing this post out on my blackberry while warming up on this awesome hotel treadmill. Vacations can be healthy ;-)

In Kansas City yesterday for some of the best BBQ on earth & to attend the Manchester United vs. Kansas City Wizards game. Anne, it is a soccer game, soccer I left that detail out yesterday; I had issues
loading pics today so I didn't, bummer as I had a good one of me sporting my new commemorative t-shirt & the 1 lite beer I allowed myself to cool the heat.

Kristen, Blue & my other soccer / ManU loving friends here sorry but ManU came up short in the USA this day~ which surprised all in attendance.

Allan & my other BBQ loving friends, Arthur Bryants was everything we've it was hyped up to be on BBQ Paradise. It was my one day of indulgence on this trip; BBQ Burnt Ends, Slaw & BBQ Beans. Treadmill, remember I am on a treadmill right now!

Ok, gotta post & run. Some young college kid just got on the treadmill next to me & is making me look bad, real bad. Gotta go make a better showing for prides sake.

Wishing all a great week!
