One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident



10 Comments 1672 views

Little Einstein QuincySaid like my favorite Little Einstein character, Quincy.  Can you tell I have a toddler?

In all seriousness, I really cannot believe it.  I hopped on the scale for the daily morning reading fully expecting it to be at least 5 pounds up but knowing I didn’t actually gain 5 pounds in a weekend.  I was bracing myself for the water weight and such.  To my surprise it was only up 1/2 pound!?!?  This was utterly shocking mostly because I know my body pretty well.  Weighing in daily for 2 years will do that to you.  I have literally “gained” 5 pounds overnight on more then one occasion, especially after a weekend of brownies, fried foods, tons of cheese and just overall JUNK!

Now I’m bracing myself for tomorrow almost like there’s just a delay or something.  LOL I know it’s not true but I feel like I have to somehow pay for me weekend of over indulgences.

All that being said maybe there is something to this working out thing. Since starting to seriously workout about 3 months ago, I’ve noticed my indiscretions don’t matter as much.  Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying I can go nuts and eat anything I want but I am surely noticing more “wiggle room” in the diet. Why didn’t ANYONE TELL ME THIS! I would have started a lot earlier. ;~) 

Let’s see. I had other things I wanted to tell you but now, of course, I’m exhausted and my brain is failing me.  I hate Mondays!  Anyway, I am WAY behind on email and comments.  Bear with me, I’ll catch up this weekend. I’ve also been working on my new food blog.  I honestly can’t remember if I told you about it or not. If not, here’s the deal.  I’m working on a new food only blog where I can post my recipes and food related posts.  I never anticipated having as many recipe ideas as I do and I’m finding older recipes are hard to access.  I really want to archive them in an easy to access way.  

Needless to say I’m a busy bee!

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.

    Its always great to have some of those surprises…By the way just wanted to say thanks for having a page out like this. It is actually inspired me to do one of my own. It really does help writing it out and its cheaper than therapy :)

    Dear, you really make my day :-)

    For those who are horizontally challenged, it is Great News to read the title of your post.

    Over the years, I did have some rare experiences like yours. It is what we called technical corrections like in stocks trading. It could be just one-off as well.

    A lot of people prefer the natural approach to weight loss. Perhaps, it is a good approach for you too.

    You’re doing something right :)! A food blog would be awesome!

    I’m so out of the loop when it comes to the toddler cartoons. My son loved Franklin when he was little and my daughter was a huge Mary-Kate and Ashley fan. She is now into the Jonas Brothers and anything on Disney Channel. I’m old

    No Where to Run ...
