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.

    Hey Roni – I’ve also been crippled by perfection in the past. Check out the post on Gretchen Rubin’s Happiness Project Blog

    She has posted on “Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good”

    It’s not directly related to weight loss/maintenance, but I really think the principle applies to us. It’s powerful stuff!

    Thanks for the answer Roni, now I know I’m not alone in my “mind/body disconnect” as you put it. Maybe one day it will finally click!

    lol. i liked the funny story. :)


    January 22, 2009

    I liked the story…too. It is sooo wild for me to look back at my progress pics…and I love seeing the change in yours too. Awesome reminders.

    I just e-mailed you a food find and a video about making workout excuses that is a good motivation.

    FYI, I love the beer pong poster behind you ;)~

    ROFLMAO….just watching you laugh about yourself made me laugh and every time you’d laugh harder, so would I. You are too funny, Roni.


    January 22, 2009

    You look so pretty!
    I think the berries are pronounced “A-Sigh” but maybe we should just call them berries to be on the safe side!

    Wonderful video! You have every right to be disheveled.
    Some of the things you were saying on the video, I was just sitting here saying, “Yes, Exactly!” You took the words right out of my mouth. I too struggle with Body Dysmorphic Disorder, and I have for as long as I can remember. I’ve lost 25 lbs and I still can’t really tell a difference. I’m waiting for the brain to catch up!

    haha…your story was funny. I hate when I do stuff like that. In my line of work they always want us to refer to poeple over the phone as ‘sir or ma’am’ but I am worried I will get it wrong so I avoid it as much as possible.

    I have asked a lady that ‘looked’ pregnant when she was due…only to find out she was just a bit heavy in the stomach area and not pregnant at all.


    January 23, 2009

    I think it was funny……*smile*. I’ve had the same body/brain problem all along. I think now that I’m Lifetime, and because my legs and butt are really skinny, it’s easy to tell that I’m smaller. But I still have skin or flab or something in the stomach area, and on my back…sides…like above the bra flab, and so I still have some body image problems with that. I’m still wanting to lose some more, but I’m not letting it get to me when it takes a long time. My healthy weight range is 129-155 and I’m 53. I stopped at 155 for my WW goal and I weigh 152 right now. I’m taking it 5 pounds at a time and re-evaluating at each. I seriously doubt that I will go any lower than 140 though. I just feel like, at my age, I don’t want to lose too much, or I may get “gaunt” looking, and I don’t wanna do that.

    I worked at a health restaurant that sold an acai smoothie. It is pronounced “ah-sigh-ee”. I’ve seen TV commercials where they say it wrong.


    January 25, 2009

    Thanks! I knew I wasn’t right! :)

    This is way overdue but I just now watched this. I laughed so hard at your story, mainly because it’s SO something I would do. My foot is very comfortable in my mouth…it’s there a lot.

    And I teared up right along with you because I can completely relate to those feelings. You can’t even imagine how many “before” pictures I have that have no after pictures to go with them.

    Thanks for being so honest and sharing. :O)

    My boyfriend gets so angry with me when I ask him to tell me whose bodies are semi comparable to mine. He just doesn’t understand that it’s hard for a lot of women to really tell what size they are.

    I don’t know if you would get this show in the States, but a British show I’ve caught a few times on television called “How to Look Good Naked” focuses on [mostly] female body image. There is even a part of the show where they take the woman who is featured that day, have her in her underwear, and stand her in front of a line of women [also in their underwear] ranging in sizes [from bigger to smaller] and ask the woman to place herself where she thinks she fits in line. The women ALWAYS put themselves at least two steps up from where they should be [so they think that they’re bigger than they actually are]. Like I said, I’ve only caught the show a few times, but I loved the idea behind it and the whole “feel comfortable in your own skin — no matter what size” mentality.

    Thanks for the great [as usual!] video, Roni! Hope you had fun at Blissdom09!

    Great job on the video, it was pretty funny too! I must agree that some of these products are complete BS. But, some really do have benefits.
