One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Today I’ve been. . .

. . . a caregiver to my little man. He hasn’t been been feeling well so we camped out at home all day.

. . . a bottomless pit. Note sure what’s up with me the last couple of days. I swear I could just eat and eat and eat and it has nothing to do with hunger. It’s just a desire to consume even when I’m quite full.

. . . an Ikea assembler. Putting together 4 pieces of furniture for the new house. This one by far my favorite…

my ikea book shelf

. . . a home cook. Making homemade meatballs and big ole’ pot of sauce.

. . . a host. My close friends made it down to check out the new house! YAY!

. . . a motivator. Challenging my fellow BlogToLoser’s to stay concious through the holiday week.

. . . Relaxing. I took a bath, cuddled with the boy, watched a movie with the husband. It has been a wonderful day. :)

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.

    I have that set of shelves, let me just say…yours is looking a bit more organized than ours. :)

    That is ONLY because it’s new. lol

    I hope your little guy is feeling better. A hot bath and epsom salt have been my thing this week – I started The 30 Day Shred and have been very sore. Thank goodness for a hot bath…:-) Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.

    What a day! I can totally relate to the first two — the sick little one and the bottomless pit. Those sound like my WEEK! Hope yours snaps out of it faster than mine did.

    The ikea books shelves look beautiful in your house! Hope Ryan feels better soon!

    I’ve got the expedit shelves too! I use it as a room divider in the loft and it’s the bomb!

    bottomless pit, you want to eat and eat and eat? hmmmmm, me thinks you better add a pg test to that list when you’re out and about on your busy day. ;o)

    Haha, I was going to say the same thing Jan did! ;-) funny, I haven’t been feeling well either. I think that really worries us all these days, doesn’t it?! I hope he feels better!

    I have been in those bottomless pit stages before. Just be careful it doesn’t get out of hand…but stress could be a big part since you have been extremely busy.

    Anyway, I also am a huge fan of IKEA. I need to make a trip there for a new coffee table….

    So sorry you little man isn’t feeling well. I hope he feels better today. And those meatballs sound fabulous. I just checked out the post :-)

    I’ve been wanting to be a bottemless pit today again. Didn’t do so well yesterday. Need to mark on my calendar when this happens. I’m sure it coincide with something. Went spinning to try not to do that again today! Hope your little one feels better.

    I feel like we are on the same wavelength….when you blog that you are cranky, I am cranky…when you can’t stop eating just to eat, I am going through the same thing!
    I feel very helpless sometimes when I can’t seem to eat enough!

    That’s so crazy, I have been a bottomless pit for exactly two days as well! I had been eating amazingly healthfully for a while, but then today and yesterday were absolutely ridiculous. Actually, beyond ridiculous. Roni, what do you do to get out of eating this way? How do you change this before it becomes a habit? Do you ever feel like you have to do something to “reverse” the damage you’ve done? That’s where I am right now. I will NOT make this a habit! But instead of eating healthfully tomorrow, I want to fast/detox because I feel like I’ve done so much damage. Blah. Hate this feeling!

    hey roni! i have those shelves too! i bought a bunch of canvas bins at target in cream, red and light green… i put it in my basement to hold my kids’ 10000 toys. :) it is the BEST – if it gets scratched, i just use a sharpie to cover it up! enjoy – great purchase.

    Mattison – Don’t do it!! Out of all the things I learned these past couple of years dropping that mentality has been one of the most important.

    what do you do to get out of eating this way?

    I don’t beat myself up! I simply prepare for the next day the best I can.

    How do you change this before it becomes a habit?

    I know from experience that this feeling will pass. Even though I feel out of control I’m still making good decisions… making my own pizze vs. ordering. Choosing egg white omelet over a regular. These little things add up and these decisions are no healthy habits. I won’t lose them just because I ate a few extra calories for a couple of days.

    Do you ever feel like you have to do something to “reverse” the damage you’ve done?

    YES! I feel it but I don’t act on it anymore. I simply make my next choice a better. It’s all about balance. It’s NOT about perfect. Fasting will not undo anything it will only perpetrate the yo yo cycle.

    Blah. Hate this feeling!

    SO DO I! :)
