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 341 - Thursday 'What & When'

Thanks for all of your comments, emails, etc. with well wishes & prayers. Very much appreciated!
It is Thursday, finally. My appointment is at 3pm this afternoon, a bit less than 5 hours away. This appointment is just the consultation with the surgical oncologist, so I won't learn anything today about whether the melanoma has spread or whether the plastic surgeon got it all a couple of weeks ago. But I will learn the 'what & when' re: the next procedure so today I will know how much longer I need to be in the dark regarding what the reality is here.

I'll share what I learn today with my next post.
