One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


A Thank You and Food Network Star Update

36 Comments 2039 views

OK… 1.) I feel TONS better. Thank you SO much for your comments. I think part of me just had to post that as some kind of therapy. :~)

This morning I hit the gym and worked my arse off for 2 hours. Boy does that do wonders for the soul too. :~)

Now, on this this Food Network Star update.

Amy let me know my video was up The Next Food Network Star page. I had NO idea! LOL

I’m super excited about this as I really thought my chances were over after the casting call! But now I have some renewed hope!

I hate to ask a favor but please, PLEASE check out the video and if you feel so inclined leave a comment on their site (there’s an area under the video). Maybe I can get their attention if it’s viewed a lot?? Right? I figure it’s worth a shot! RIGHT? :~)

Ok, I’m off to the shower to dream about TV stardom! HA! Oh! and I just posted a quick idea on GreenLiteBites, Ramen Noodle "Chili". So YUMMY and SO full for 6 points!

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.

    Congrats Roni!! Great job on the video and Best of Luck to you!!! Hope to see you as a contestent!


    October 24, 2008

    Done! Good luck, Roni! And I was sorry to hear about your cookbook. :-( That’s an awful feeling. I’ll still be lining up to buy a copy when it’s done, though!

    I commented! I also tried to click on your video over and over because I wanted you to be the most viewed darn it!!! lol! I don’t think it worked, but I’m going to keep trying…

    I put the post below on the Food Network site for you:

    “Roni is daring and confident. She fills a much needed gap in the food TV world which is REALITY. I have been following her on her GreenLiteBites site and I think she is a combination of Semi-Homemade, Quick Fix and Down Home but very healthy. I have made several of her recipes and her “toddler-tested, toddler-approved” seal of satisfaction is right on every time.”

    I commented on the video for you. I must say it was REALLY hard to keep my opinion down to 500 words and I had to edit a lot out. You are a great inspiration and keep it REAL!
    Thanks for all you do.

    Hi Roni,

    I left a comment for you on the Food Network Star site. I actually made those butternut squash fries with dinner tonight so it was funny to see that you had chosen to make them for your audition. I learned how to make them from your very first video and I still love them!

    Good luck Roni, you have a lot of support and people cheering for you.

    I posted a comment on the Food Network video. I wish you good luck with that venture with mixed feelings. If we share you with the Food Network, we’ll probably lose you in here. :/ All the same, Good Luck Roni! I’ll be watching for you!
