One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Flying Out Tomorrow!

20 Comments 1572 views

I’m still in a slight state of shock. I’ll be signing off for a few day as I’m treating this NY trip as a mini vacation for myself. I’m going alone, brining a book, my ipod and soaking up every minute of “me” time. I’m thinking I will even work out at the hotel fitness center! There is something I’ve NEVER done before. Actually, whenever I saw a fitness room at a hotel I thought to myself “who the heck is working out on vacation?!?!” I mean you’re on VACATION, right? Well now I get it and I am actually looking forward to it. Strange, I know.

I’ll be back Saturday will a full report. Wish me luck!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I SO know what you mean about the hotel fitness center! I could never imagine anyone using them, now it’s one of the things I check out when I’m thinking about booking a room! What a difference…. Night and Day!
    I’m so excited that you’re headed to NY, and regardless of whether you’re chosen for the cover, I’m so happy for you because you stood out in the first place! You look amazing in your recent picture. Have fun getting all made up in the City! I’m looking forward to hearing all about it!

    Have fun!

    And, Godspeed.

    Congrats and good luck!

    When you make the cover, I probably won’t buy the issue, being a guy and all, but I’ll try to discreetly check it out at the supermarket checkout line. Maybe I’ll hide it inside an issue of Sports Illustrated or something… ;)

    Have fun in NYC!

    Congratulations Roni ~ you go and enjoy, we are all behind you and so thrilled for you. Just have to share with you, I also joined a private gym and work with a trainer now, for approx 5 weeks, I’m starting to see small improvement in my arms too, YES. I was worried they might never firm up, but some days my arms actually look like they are taking some form. Back to you, can’t wait to hear about your test cover shots, it’s just so exciting for you. Congrats again.
    Take care,

    OMG Roni!
    That is so exciting. I didn’t catch your post about the photo shoot news until today!
    When you get back this experience deserves a BIG post. I mean B I G.

    *And the whole wheat mini bagels are yummy. Also splurged for the mini strawberry. Taste like a sinful desert w/ a little FF or LF cream cheese.

    Have fun, Joy
