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 407-408: Memorial Day

A Happy Memorial Day to one and all

Today most of us will go about our days, or lives, as we do just about every day. Many will engage in a variety of holiday activities, taking advantage of the day off of work, and enjoying the day with friends & family. And we should, for that is just what those who gave the ultimate sacrifice fought & died for; that we may live free and enjoy each day as we choose.

Part of the Memorial Day holiday in the USA includes a call for "The National Moment of Remembrance" which encourages all Americans to pause wherever they are at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day for a minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation.

I welcome all from all nations to join me in observing The National Moment of Remembrance with me.

Enjoy the day!

Responsibility 199 - Gotta Do It!!


  1. Thank you for the reminder, Patrick.
    We should honor also those who are often forgotten on such holidays, those in Coast Guard and National Guard whom we also owe so much for keeping this country safe.

  2. Have a great day, Patrick!


  3. I will be doing it Patrick! Thx for this post!

  4. Happy Memorial Day to everyone in America from your UK friends across the pond :)

  5. YES! my daughter kept asking why DADA was home yesterday and I explained it to her on her level.
    I didnt just give her the pat "its a holiday" and move on.
