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 142 - Happy Labor Day

Labor Day is the unofficial end of the summer.
Labor Day is an occasion for getting your BBQ'n on.
Labor Day is a day for towns, villages, cities to put on parades.
Labor Day is unfortunately where politicians will appear at these parades and open their mouths.
Labor Day is referenced throughout the year as when the NFL and College football seasons will kick off again.
Labor Day is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers, according to the U.S. Dept. of Labor.
Whatever Labor Day is to you, enjoy this day.
