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 12 comments so far.

    I wanted to comment on the weekends off question. I have lost 30-35 pounds so far and the reason I have the 5 lb variance is because I took weekends off. It was really hard for me to get over the concept of not being able to take the weekends off since I did it for so long (4 months). I didnt even go that crazy but the weekends would gain me 5 lbs and I would lose it during the week. This weekend is the first weekend where I took the “weekend off” concept and made it only one meal off. I chose a meal to splurge on and the rest of the weekend I mentally tracked what I ate, but it was all good light food. Hopefully this works for me.

    Like Roni said, give us an update! I would love to hear what you did.

    Loved the video as always- thanks for answering my Aldi’s question. I will be looking for the shopping list on your site. What a HOOT to do a video post from Aldi’s!
    Enjoy your much needed vacation!

    Loved the video and thanks for answering my question about weekends off.
    I have managed to lose another 5 lbs and have now lost 35lbs in total. I am very happy with this and feel quite proud of myself. I have however, enjoyed my weekends continually since I asked this question. I think that I was actually looking for direction from someone who I respect in the WW department who wasn’t my leader that I see every week at our meetings. I already knew what her answer would be! I guess I was hopeful that Roni you would have some magical way for me to eat what I want on the weekends, not journal or exercise and still lose weight quickly! I know – stupid.

    Roni – I agree. I should start tracking on the weekends even if I do go a little overboad with my points. I think that I have only lost an additional five lbs since writing that quetion because of my splurging on the weekends. We moved and stuff like that as well but I should have lost a lot more weight by now. I am sure it is hard on my body to raise my insulin, over fill my belly etc over the weekend and then do the complete opposite during the week. It can’t be good.

    I like the suggestion made by Tara from Portland…perhaps it will be a one meal splurge and not a two day splurge…

    Thanks everyone and thanks Roni for answering my question. I know I comment a lot!

    Hope you have a wonderful vacation! Tanya

    P.S. LOVE the new site!

    hi roni! i have heard of chia seeds and i eat them everyday! they really have helped me on my road to weight loss because they are a natural stomach filler and provide sort of sustained energy. i guess they were used for centuries by many south american cultures and were known as aztec running food because a handful of seeds could sustain a person all day long. anyway, the seeds are also loaded with fiber, omega-3, antioxidants and vitamins, so people really are calling them a superfood.

    oddly enough, i happen to buy my seeds from the same place that you link to at the beginning of the post. they are called the chia seed and they have a pretty informative site and i’ve had a great experience buying from them online.

    anyway, hope this helps you out and i love your videos so keep up the great work!!!
