One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Weekend Quote: What a Ride!

10 Comments 940 views

I saw this quote on a friend’s Facebook page and fell in love with it…

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skin in sideways, chocolate in hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming “WOO HOO what a ride!”

I’m home from vacation. I enjoyed every moment, every slice of pizza, every ice cream cone, every beer, every french fry. I walked. I ran. I played paddle ball and frisbee, rode rides, walked the boardwalk, flew kites and dove into waves with my 6 year old.

I have no regrets.

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 believe that quote is originally from the late, great George Carlin. Its been one of my favorites for years!

    Is it George Carlin?!? I was digging but couldn’t find anything. He’s one of my favorites and now that you say it it sounds so like him!

    Hi, so glad to hear you’ve enjoyed your vacation with your beautiful family. If you don’t mind, I have a breastfeeding question as I see you are nursing and I plan to as well (8 mths pg!) Do you know what the “rules” are for alcohol and nursing? Do you have to wait a certain amount of time after you have a beer to nurse? I tried to look on La Leche but didn’t see it under FAQ. Thanks!

    LOVE IT! And I’m with ya, I would rather enjoy pizza with my kids, swimming in the lake with them and doing new and fun things together than worrying about how much I weight or if my butt is showing a little too much in my suit this year!
