This is the first session of the videos I recorded on Friday. I go on and on about my new hair do a bit, can you tell I was excited about it?

I have one more session from this recording I’ll get up later in the week.

Topics in this video include…

  • Problem committing to smaller sizes?
  • Does the husband read my blog?
  • Whole Grain Snacks
  • Curbing Cravings
  • Getting over a plateau? (see link below)

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.

    Great video post~ (the videos are my favorite)! I appreciate your openness about family members who aren’t on the same page with healthy eating. My husband is pretty good, but his parents are a real challenge. I feel bad when they come into town because I don’t keep any unhealthy food in the house (except very few kid-like snacks like wheat goldfish and fruit snacks that my toddler occasionally eats- and those aren’t so bad). I want to be accomodating, but I also want to set a good example. My husband’s dad is really off the deep end. He hard-headedly refuses to even try healthier versions of things. It’s like he genuinely doesn’t care or comprehend how his food choices impact his health. I have to admit, it sort-of bugs me after a while because it comes off as ignorant. At least he could acknowledge that eating healthier is certainly better, even though he chooses not to. I would respect that more. My husbands mom is on the fence, at least. She understands that they should eat better, but she gets tied up in lots of emotional eating (more than most) and falls into eating with my father-in-law. It’s a bad cycle for them and I think he is a big part of the problem. Anyway- it frustrates us because we know that their choices are why they aren’t in the kind of shape to be as active as they could be with their grandkids. I try to not think about it and just keep pushing on, trying to eat as healthy as possible- maybe one day, the will be more motivated to eat/live better~

    Beigel and Beigel and Landau and Uncle Henry’s make 100% whole wheat pretzels in salted and sesame flavors.

    Thanks Roni…..for answering my question about the whole wheat pretzels. Just a couple weeks after I asked you that question, I traveled to the Detroit area to visit my Aunt and cousins and I got to go to Trader Joes, believe it or not!!! So I stocked up on a lot of Trader Joe’s snacks (including whole wheat pretzels), but of course I couldn’t buy anything frozen or refrigerated. But I spent around $60 there…..and it was such a fun store. I wish we would get one in the central Illinois area.

    Your haircut looks cute!

    I have had my “ups” and downs with sizes as well. I have clothes that range in size from 2 to 8. This past July, I got serious with my training (running and weights), and I have gotten back into my “2s.” This is a crucial time for me, because I am more scared of gaining weight back than of having the weight on to begin with. By keeping the larger sizes in the closet, it reminds me that I need to stay on the right track!

    I just bought Triscuit thin crisps. I need to stop eating them from the box. Lol.

    I realize this makes me sound semi-crazy but I do have a photographic memory so bear with me lol…I’m pretty sure the post about eating in the car was a written post and not a video, because I remember seeing the words on the screen. Of course, I could be wrong…


    October 27, 2008

    I agree with everyone else. The hair looks great. I am on a bit of a stand still with my weight…I think I am going to pull up all your Q&A sessions and listen to then while I work. Hopefully it will help me think of something to kick start my efforts. :-)

    Good morning….. It is me, you, the rest of the “family” and my cup coffee… my morning ritual :)…
    I am still not sure from where on this site I should send general questions, but you mentioned trader joes again. I have been to this store while in San Fran… and we have one in Milwaukee, WI. About once a year we take a trip there and stock up on well.. 2 buck Chuck :).. which by the way in WI is 3 buck chuck. (it is a pretty decent Wine for 2$ if you have not heard of it) We have not been there in a year, and I was not on my new life back then. We will be planning a trip soon and I know you have a LOT of items you recommend from them. Do you think you would ever consider doing one of your “shopping” lists for Trader Joes, like you did with Aldis!

    Thank you for another good start to my morning

    Hi Suzzan! Askin question in comments is totally fine! Unless you want to ask me one for the videos then use…

    As for the Trader Joe’s list, I beat ya to it! :~) Well kind of….

    That page has some products I must get when I go which isn’t that often because it’s a little far for me. If I get some time I’ll work on a list and shoot a video but I don’t have plans on going anytime soon. :~(
