One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident

I rarely have pictures taken of me (that I don’t take myself) so I had to share these. My friends photographer was phenomenal!

And here’s a 15 minute healthy meal idea for you. The little guy and I made it up last night and recorded a video while making dinner. Click here to watch all our shenanigans. Here’s the result…

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.

    beautiful pics, roni! it looks like you had such a fun time at the wedding :)

    OMG! You are so beautiful! You have always been beautiful (I started reading in 2006, I think). But, I swear, over the years, as you have gotten more comfortable in your skin (grace, maybe?), you are just getting more and more beautiful as the days pass. Your smile is so genuine and full of life. These are photos that could be in a magazine. It’s obvious from the second picture that your husband is one lucky guy!

    I totally second what Elaine said. You look gorgeous. I love the genuine smile you have in both of them. That really is hard to capture on film sometimes for all of us.

    Oh, and as a mom to 2 kids, I totally get what you’re saying about having little to no pics of yourself! Me too! I’m always the photographer, never the subject. :) Ah…well at least I have such wonderful subjects. They’re more interesting than me anyways.

    Anyhoo, great shots. Thanks for sharing!

    You look so happy in those pictures and thanks for the new recipe. Looks yummy and I know my hubby will like it, too. :o)

    you have such a beautiful spirit…it just shines through

    OhMyGod roni you look so pretty! I agree w/ Elaine i started reading in 2007 and the more comfortable you have gotten in your own skin the prettier you have become, you look so full of life and to me that’s what makes you so inspiring. I admire how you have this “go out into the world and grab it by the balls attitude!” you give me motivation to just TRY and not fear failure (something i deal w/ on a daily basis), thank you!

    Roni, you truly are beautiful. Not just in the wedding pictures, but everyday. Those pictures are amazing, though.

    I want the joy that is on your face in both of those pictures. Your smile radiates a … joy within you ~ and a peace that I don’t have yet I am “happy”. I don’t want to be happy ~ I want to be a peacefully joyful bubble that is so contageous!!


    May 18, 2010
