One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Feeling Totally Out of Control but Excited!

Let’s just say…

Stress + Pizza + PMS + 12 Hours at Work = DISASTER

Ummmm let’s see….

I lost my cell phone today. I don’t really care about the phone itself but all those numbers. AAACK! I don’t even want to think about it.

It’s the last week of classes. Which should make me happy but it’s a super busy time.

I have an inbox full of messages I just can’t get ahead on.

3 client projects that are starting to fall behind.

A house that is in constant state of messiness.

Oh and I’m a mom to a very active 3 year old (well, almost 3) who is showing all signs of potty train readiness and I have NO idea what I’m doing.

Now, if all that wasn’t enough I launched my new weight loss community this weekend! I am SUPER excited about it but it has been a wee bit stressful as well.

It’s been going well so far and I’ve been having a lot of fun welcoming and orientating everyone to the new system. If you are interested there are new forums, a blog feature for users and even a chat! I plan on doing some scheduled meet ups there when everything calms down a bit.

So, on top of all that I haven’t worked out since Saturday (I’m missing it) and I ate (OMG I can’t believe I’m going to confess this) 6 slices of pizza over the course of 4 hours.

** Sigh ** No I don’t turn to food for emotional support at all, nope not me, not at all.

Right now it’s yet again after midnight, because I can’t sleep after a long day at work without unwinding first. At least I’m not snacking. Oh yea, that’s right, it’s because I feel like a bloated overstuffed pig.


Tomorrow will be better.

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.

    you do have so much on your plate, woman.
    and as Ive said to you before IVE NO CLUE HOW YOU DO IT and all so well.

    be kind to yourself.
    today is a new day.
    new points.
    a new chance to set yourself up for success.
    you’re an amazing role model—yes, because of all youve done and achieved but also because you are REAL.
    just like us :)

    and you struggle and sometimes your days dont unfold as planned—just like us.

    and you pick yourself up and carry on the next day—just like we’re try to do.

    (as always, if I can ever lend a hand SHOUT my way!)

    My oldest – a boy also – was at that same stage just before third birthday. I actually waited until his 3rd birthday and then it was 3 days total – no more diapers and totally done. It helps if they drink WATER and not juice for a while – it is easier to know when you have to go and there seems to be less urgency with water. I picked 3 days when we were going to be home. the other thing – is don’t ask IF they “HAVE to go?” just tell him to “go try”. I used to say do you want to try in the little bathroom or the big bathroom? And I always send kids to go (mine are now 18, 14, 10 – but I still say this) before we walk out the door to go anywhere at all.

    Sounds like you’re having one of those weeks when everything in your world seems to have gotten together and planned one massive attack!

    You have a lot on your plate (no pun intended) and it’s understandable that things feel overwhelming.

    and pizza is mighty delicious. You’re strong and fiesty and you’ll get through this. Don’t be too hard on yourself.

    My oldest turns 3 in a week and we’ve been in undies for about 3-4 months now – although he REFUSES to tell me he needs to go at home, only out in public. So I just take him and tell him he HAS to try to go, and it has worked out so far! I promise he will do much better than you think he will – I was so surprised by my little guy. I just wish someone had told me how much work it is – constantly dragging him to the potty, especially with a 1 year old in tow! :)

    I also lost my phone and when I got a new one, the phone company asked me if I wanted them to transfer all my old numbers over. I was ELATED! I thought I lost them forever – maybe your company does that too!

    Good luck with everything!

    ….at least it was over the course of four hours! :)

    I’m so excited to have found your blog! I love your banner. I love that you are struggling even after being at it so long. I love that you’re so honest about it all. I’ll have to go check out your new community. Tomorrow will be better!

    When I get tired I reach out for the easy stuff too. Sometimes it not just the easy stuff that satisfies, its the pizza, or something someone else made :)
    One meal at a time, one day at a time.

    Roni, as for the potty training thing. My son is now four. Although he showed signs at just before 3 we were a success story until 3.5. My suggestion wait wait wait. If you can get him to sit on potty and try at a set time each day that starts the process but dont push it. it will only drive each of you nuts. None of us know what we are doing when it comes to this and I so felt that way. Try not to give your yourself a goal cause he will do it when he is ready. Start with sitting on potty at set times and trying (say 10 minutes after a lunch/drink) When it was all said and done for us. I was totally a believer of waiting.

    they say… if you start and 3 you will finish at three– if you start at 2 you will finish at 3. When potty training students at school, we go at a set time everyday– that helps train your more than them. But with my daughter, she showed lost of interest and would do it at daycare, but not at home. Then one day, I let her pick out her own panties– and she was done. I had tried everything… timer every thirty minutes, undies to le them feel it…she didn’t care. When she was ready… it happened. Good Luck. ~~Amy
