ASK RONI Q&A

Ask Roni _v05 Session 1 – Video/Podcast Post

12 Comments 2334 views

I’m at it again, answering all of your great questions! This time I recorded three sessions but I’m using the first to experiment a bit with the whole Podcasting thing. Click here for the podcast file and I’ll be adding the link below the video player for all future video posts and I’m working on getting the podcasts added to iTunes. I’ll update here when I successfully get it up there.

Topics in this video include…

  • Do I get overwhelmed with the popularity of the site?
  • Do you ever get recognized?
  • Don’t have time to cook, ideas?
  • Weekly points in maintenance?
  • What is my occupation?

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.

    So, I don’t think that people can ever hear this enough, even though it’s a bit awkward to tell a perfect stranger… you are gorgeous! I don’t know if it’s the lighting or what, but you look like you have a hair and makeup team at your house!

    Anyway, I absolutely love the site (and GLB) and have made a ton of your recipes and enjoyed them all. Your positive attitude and kindness are so refreshing, helpful, and motivating and I really appreciate the time and energy you spend on us — even if it’s for you, it really is helping a whole lot of perfect strangers! With your help, I am developing a better mindset, and trying quinoa! Ha!

    But seriously, you’re an amazing person, and I think I speak for us all when I thank you very much!

    The video screen wasn’t there … but I listened to the podcast. We were just talking about maintenance at today’s meeting, so even though I still have 30 pounds to go, it was great timing.

    Great job, as always. I love hearing your take on things.

    i concur with rebekah. you look great! like, gorgeous great! i don’t feel weird about saying that because after all that hard work losing the weight, you deserve to hear how good you look. i know ive said it before, but it’s inspirational.

    keep video blogging. it’s really engaging.

    ps. social media communities are fascinating to me too. and you’re alexa rating is waaaay better than mine!

    Woohoo! Podcast! For some reason I think I could listen to you talk all day. Even though you would not be considered a licensed health care or diet professional you still have so much stuff to say that people want to hear. I don’t want to hear a doctor tell me that I need to lose weight. But I don’t mind hearing you suggest things that will aid in my loss. Not to mention you are a walking, talking success story. Oh…any you are a pretty person that is NOT stuck up. :-)

    I agree with Christy……Woohoo! Podcast! And I too, could listen to you talk all day! I’ll bet there are a lot of us out there who could! I am SO into podcasts, and how great to have Roni on my iPod when I walk!!! Man!!!

    Good video! I wanted to mention two things that are sorta off topic. I think you look very nice with your hair down. It seems like your hair is normally pulled up for the videos. Also, I cannot believe that you had wet hair in the video. It totally looks styled.

    And….don’t laugh too hard…you are one of the few people I know that can actually look good from the angle you are at. If someone was to shoot me from an upward angle they would mostly get my chins…haha

    Any word from Oprah yet? ;-)

    Thanks for the maintenance question!!! I’ve found that since I’ve become a lifetime member, I don’t ever seem to be in “actual” maintenance mode…rather I go from not counting to “loss mode” to get me back on track, etc. Perhaps if I try the actual “maintenance”…I won’t have to do so much back and forth!!!

    So Roni,
    Will you let us know when you are on Oprah, because your audience will be full with all the people you inspire AND we want to meet you. (If someone did not contact Oprah – I will!) You are just soooo awesome at your job and I really want you to see how many people you are helping. You are doing such great things for us. You still rock sistafriend.
    Your greatest fan (not stalker :o) from Wisconsin!

    I love the podcast! I’ve been trying to make time to sit down and watch the videos. Since I have been back at school, it has been really hard to do that. Yesterday, I played the podcast on my computer while I cleaned out a big storage cabinet in my classroom. It made the time pass much faster, and I got to enjoy your post while I was getting some necessary work done. Thanks!
