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 169 - 48% Progress

How was your Saturday? Are you ready for Sunday?? I know I am, lets get on with it!

I am off to a good start on the October Go The Distance Challenge (for you tweeters hash tag #OctGTD); I've out in miles both yesterday and today.

It is weigh in day but before chatting up myself lets chat up others with a couple of shout outs...

I came to know Kelly this week via her post here. Actually I came to know her via Jack Sh*t's reply to her calling him out on his post here. Kelly is running a local 5K on Sunday, November 14, 2010 to benefit and raise awareness for prostate cancer. Her Dad was diagnosed with prostrate cancer back in May, so this is will be a very personal race for her. On that day I will get in 5k myself some how, some way, some where. Walk, jog, both; whatever under my own power. If you decide to join us please let Kelly know via her blog or twitter.

Aliana is on the cusp of OneDerland. She can't get any closer. Next week, she should be there. Follow along as she cracks that oh-so cool milestone.

Ok, weigh in details. Excellent week overall. So I hit the scale this a.m. hoping for not only my desired 1.5 pound weekly drop but2-3x that. Drum roll in your head if it helps, here it is...

Kicked to the curb are 48% of the pounds I need to kick.
Kicked all total is 58.5 pounds over twenty-four weeks; 2.5 of them this past week.
Today I weighed in at 261.5 pounds.
All together now - Oh Yeah...

    I see from your profile you live in Northern Illinois. Me too. Vernon Hills. I've been trying to convince Mr. Klein to bring the wife and come out for a visit. It's nice to know he has other friends out here.
