One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


My Top 20 Posts from 2008!

12 Comments 2003 views

You may have noticed I did a bit of New Years Cleaning around here. Nothing major, just rearranged a bit and added an orientation for any new readers (or old ones who may have been missing something.) Cleaning up and re-reading my own posts was just what I needed to get out of the funk I’m in. So I decided to pluck my favorite posts from 2008. Hopefully it will motivate us! :)

  1. Resolutions vs. Goals
  2. A Weight (Watcher) Maintainer Rant
  3. 10 Stay Active Tips!
  4. Fat is NOT a Dirty Word but Maybe it’s the Wrong One
  5. Accountability & Awareness
  6. Can’t vs. Haven’t
  7. Ask Roni – No Answers Just Self Analysis
  8. Are you ready?
  9. What 5 things would you tell yourself?
  10. "That was a good run Mommy!"
  11. Ask Roni – Scale Habits? Gone Full Circle?
  12. I could have…
  14. Why isn’t my unhappiness motivation enough? – A Follow Up
  15. All the Hard work is Really Worth it!
  16. Can you LET IT GO?
  17. 3 Steps to a Healthier YOU! – A Series
  18. I DID IT! I Freakin’ DID IT!!
  19. New Month’s Eve!
  20. Weekend Quote: New Beginnings

I’m off to make this New Years Eve Sensational! :) Have a GREAT ONE!

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.

    Happy New Year Roni…I haven’t commented in a while….I haven’t really been online….just been staying busy..and enjoying life..nothing wrong with that..I have lots of videos to watch that you’ve posted and I can’t wait until this weekend to do so.

    Have a great new year tonight…..My bf and I are having new years at our house with friends and all..this is a first for us..but I’d rather have everybody over having a good time and sleeping over then paying a ton to go out and have to worry about getting home…

    Happy New Year, Roni! Thank you for a wonderful year of inspiring posts. You’ve kept me in the fight so many times! Have a great new year!

    As a new reader, I appreciate both your new orientation section, as well as getting to look at your “best” posts of 2008!!

    I want to congratulate you on your wonderful weight loss and maintenance! (I hope some day that I too am a success story!)

    Happy New Year! I have a site suggestion…like you dont have a busy enough life! LOL You should have a segment or section where your readers can submit a favorite recipe and you could post a lighter/healthier substitute recipe?!

    I was just sitting here enjoying a cannoli, thinking that I wish I was a better cook so I could make a lighter version.

    All the best, Nicole in NY

    Loved reading #1 and posted about it and you on my New Year’s Resolutions post yesterday.

    Roni, you have been a true inspiration and it was great having the chance to meet you in 2008. Wishing you a very Happy New Year.

    Thanks for this post! Turns out I may have missed a few!

    Happy New Year Roni!!!

    Thanks for putting this together. This is just what I needed today. I was able to sit down and take some time for myself. A tip I picked up from one of your videos. Thank you for being REAL. Without going back to find it I want to comment on a video that you did not to long ago. It was an ask Roni where a woman had a husband who wasn’t kind about her efforts. While not as extreme, I sometimes feel the same and that post really touched me. It gave me a new confidence to deal with it. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I will continue to follow.

    I am really loving going back and reading these Top 20. I am a fairly new reader of your blog (started in June or July of 2008), so a lot of this is new to me. Thanks for compiling these!

    Oh, and on a completely separate note, I absolutely love your podcasts. I used to watch the videos at work, but now that they are blocked, I subscribe in iTunes and listen to them either while I work, or while I run.

    Happy New Year and here’s to a fabulous 2009!!
