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 98 - Gett'n Gone

Tofu for dinner yesterday; sauteed with tomatoes and spices, very
nice. Kicking myself for not taking a photo for you. What I did take a picture of was me getting the last Rainer Cherry before the kids woke up and got it ~ bhwaahahahaha!

We head out for vacation today. A trip with our teenage kids to check
out colleges in the Midwest. Fun fun fun, or so we hope. Every hotel has a gym and a pool, and every campus has lots of room to walk. So no excuses to be accepted for exercise missed. I will make my posts this week via my cell phone; I can email a post to my blog from my cell browser but I cannot reply to posts on my blog or others.

That sucks! After blogging hard for nearly 100 days the thought of not posting on your blogs for a week is not setting well with me.

So college, or high school... what did you like most about your school years that you don't enjoy today?
Myself, hmmm... should have thought about my own question before writing it... I know, not caring about what I ate. I didn't, and at the younger age I didn't have an issue getting fat so fast.  That changed in my late 20's, oh to be 20-something again. I also miss the end of semester meal. A group of guys I hung with would go to a real mexican diner (no not taco bell!) and get burritos to celebrate another semester in the books. They were cheap, huge and so good.
