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 300 - Happiness, Get It Here

Today is Day 300 of my mission. Balloons at the ready, fireworks loaded for launch; not so fast...

A couple of days ago I wondered if I should do something special for this post. Many ideas passed through my head and I had a great idea too. But that idea of mine could not come close to being as worthy of my time today, or yours, than the words of another I came upon yesterday.

So, for my day 300; I dedicate this day to her words and share them with you...

Cinner (ME, MY FOUR CHINS AND I) is a blogger I follow as do several dozen bloggers. Those that do have known for a while she has a gift for perspective that most of us only wish we could wrap our heads around.

There are many bloggers out there that can capture perspective with their blog skills. Since perspective is what we hunger for, we follow on because we feel they are among the best out there. But even the best of the best at times hit homerun-posts so amazing that when the reading is done, we just sit and stare in awe at the screen. After a few self-reflective moments we whisper to self, "Wow, There it is, another piece of the puzzle, found!"

Cinner did just that with her post this past Monday.
