One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


My Cookbook is Published!

27 Comments 2365 views

I’m published! Sort of. I self-published so I’m not sure it officially ‘counts’ but still. After years of flirting with the idea and procrastinating, I finally took the leap. I’m terrified yet excited, optimistic yet worried. Never in a million years did I think I’d be doing what I’m doing for a living.

GreenLiteBites: Favorites From the First 3 Years is 80 full color pages of recipes from my Food Blog GreenLiteBites. I offer suggestions on how to modify recipes if you don’t have all the ingredients, a brief intro that dives into my history and a little about my pantry. My mission is to inspire people to cook, plain and simple. I hope my ideas, the blogs and now this book show you that cooking can be fun.

As I said on GreenLiteBites, I’m going to shut up now. I think I’m babbling due to nerves. :) Click here to hop over to the GreenLiteBites: Favorites From the First 3 Years book page to peek inside and buy your copy today!

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.

    Very cool Roni – way to go! I started reading your blog back when it was called ‘Weight Watchen’ … geez, I think that’s 4 years now! I lost 48 lbs on WW and put back most of it. On the journey again – thank you for the constant inspiration on your blog.

    Oh… it counts.

    Now, it doesn’t mean that some publisher in NY looked at it and said that it passes the sniff test…. but it does mean that you were able to complete it and believe in it and love it— do you see a reoccurring theme here??

    I have a book that I am writing and it is very very difficult to get one finished and published- even when doing it yourself!! So congratulations!!!! Good job!!


    January 25, 2011

    Just placed my order! I’m so excited for you and can’t wait for my copy to come in the mail! :)


    January 25, 2011

    Congratulations! That is very cool and inspiring!

    Just got it in the mail by ordering through amazon. It looks great. I especially like the way you used color to highlight things in the text.
