One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Saturday Link Fest!

7 Comments 1408 views

I’m feeling SO better! Not 100% but a lot better. Tomorrow I WILL be going to the gym and getting back into my groove. It will be my first workout WITH the trainer! I can’t wait. 

Anyway I thought it would be fun to do a bit of a link fest today. I’ve been collecting a few things all week that caught my eye.  So here goes!

In need of some motivation?

Girl on a Mission gave a great Pep Talk to herself that everyone should read. One of my favorite quotes…

If I want my future to be a healthy, happy and prosperous life, I have to love where I am headed and look forward to the journey.

I also have stumbled on an AMAZING success story. You really have to check out Lynn’s Weight-Loss Journey. She has awesome before an after photos and great insights on food, exercise and maintenance.

How about a laugh?

Red’s been leaving comments here for sometime and I always found him funny in a sarcastically humorous way. Well, he’s started a video blog called Unstarved which I find hysterically funny. It’s nice to put a face to the name and get a good chuckle every week.

The next one made me laugh in a “Holy Crap! People actually do like my ideas” kind of way.  Amanda from Down Home Dieting made one of my recipes and posted about it with a ton of pictures. It was a very flattering post for me so I feel a little egotistical sharing it but hey, it’s my blog right?! ;~P  Thanks Amanda!

A game?

This Eat This Not That game is actually fun and I learned a few things about some fast food choices I didn’t realize.

Okay, that should sufficiently keep you busy for a little while! Have fun and I hope are having a great weekend!

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.


There are 7 comments so far.

    Thanks for the links, Roni! I’m always looking for success stories and recipe ideas, so the sites you listed were perfect!

    Thanks for linking my site! I’m really excited about my next update on Monday, and the site is still very much a work in progress, but I’m glad to hear someone besides my sister (who helps the writing…) likes it.

    In your post you said..
    “I’ve made myself a HUGE batch lemon-lime water”. Can you post how you make that. I LOVE Lemon-Lime water..but it is so expensive off the shelf!

    Roni, thanks so much for posting a link to my site- it almost excites me the same way I get excited about waiting for weigh ins on Monday’s. As always, I look to you for motivation and support….and I hope that I will someday be as successful as yourself.

    Cheers to another good week!

    So I’m not the only one who has been batttling a bug.

    Glad you’re feeling better. (me too!)

    If you do end up throwing together the quiche, don’t forget the tips I e-mailed you about pressing the crust. You WILL need to spray your hands.
    Have fun!

    Thanks for the link, Roni! I love your recipes and look forward to trying out even more.

    Right now I have my eye on that Polenta Pizza. I’ve never made polenta in my life, so that should be interesting!

    Have a great week!

    Thanks for all the links. I love good finds!

    Did you see that Lyn gave you a shout out on her blog? How cool.

    I’m glad you’re feeling better! Thanks for writing while you were sick.
