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 78 - 30% Progress & Happy 4th!!!!

I will be brief because today is not a day to talk about myself. But it just happens to also be weigh-in day so I must share the news. My goal for today's weigh-in was 286.

As of today, the 78th day of my mission, I've now lost 30% of the weight I want to lose. Which means I have dropped 36 pounds in the past ELEVEN weeks; 3.5 of them this past week. Today I weighed in at 284 pounds.

That deserves an Oh Yeah! It also deserves a Thank You to all of you, my blogger friends. I cannot say enough how much your words of wisdom have increased my knowledge and inspired my efforts. Long way to go, but I really don't think I'd have made this sort of progress in 78 days without you.

So again, Thank You!
