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.

You rock Roni!!!
I’m shopping for a bathing suit now…and my problem area is my hips/thighs, which are basically impossible to cover in any way. But, it’s for my HONEYMOON….and I have to tell myself that so long as the suit fits well, I need to just let go – I’m marrying the man of my dreams and going on a day 10 adventure to Hawaii. Who the hell cares that I have fat thighs??

I love you perspective, and I also love the fact that you are absolutely right….

Awww! So sweet! You are right, now one cares as much about the way you look as you do. The people that love you love you no matter what!
I just got all verklempt!!! It is a beautiful picture and the absolute truth. Our boys love us because we’re Mom and not because we rock a bikini. Beautiful, beautiful truth!
Love it and oh SO VERY TRUE!!!
Best. Quote. Ever. You are the definition of awesome!
I think you look perfect the way you are! You are rocking that swim suit!! :)
Love that picture:) great quote, your right!
Unconditional love, we need to love ourselves the way our kids love us! Beautiful!
Maria @ my waist loss journey
are you saying he doesn’t care or that it doesn’t matter?? I know what you meant…
Beautiful picture! :)
good point. hard to remember sometimes im sure, but so true.
This made me smile. I love it. I wish and want to remember this always.
I always joke about how I love that my kids are never peeking out from behind sunglasses thinking to themselves…. “ooooh yeah! I bet that mom over there makes a mean grilled cheese!” they love us for who we are, however we are. and because we are all on your website, it means that we are all trying to be healthier for them and for us!!! Go moms!!
You hit the nail on the head with this!!!! Lovely photo too. All the best!
Love it! And even though he doesn’t care, you look great and that picture is priceless!

Yes, it is and sometimes I need to remind myself of that fact.
perfectly said! and for the record…you look great!
i love this post. your confidence is inspiring. and, not to totally defeat the purpose of you posting this, but you look great.
Love. This. Post. A picture and a small amount of words can be worth a million.

LOVE THIS! I had this discussion with a fellow Mom the other day. I spent years trying to coverup and two years ago – I decided I was missing out on all the fun. So, I’m the larger women, in a one piece with rolls and wrinkles having a FABULOUS with my two boys.
Love this more than you know!
*sniff, sniff* I teared up reading that. It’s so true! ( and thanks pregnancy hormones!)
I’d like to frame these simple words and this beautiful image to remind me every day about what matters. And how lucky I am to have little hands to hold. Thank you Roni.
Hi Roni! I’ve been a silent reader for sooo long but this picture (and the caption) has finally moved me enough to comment. I’m guessing that it was taken by the husband? :-) I read how you’ve lost and gained weight over the years but it’s great to have a husband who loves you for who you really are right? Wish I’ll meet my Him soon.

Good for you!! Enjoy every precious moment!
This one made me cry. It’s so true.
Belinda – It was taken by the husband. He’s literally been with me through thick and thin. :)
You have absolutely no idea how much this touched me. I have had body image issues my entire life….no matter what weight I am. Well, you know what? Your words couldn’t be more honest. I finally realized that if I’m healthy and can show my boys the right things to do in life, that’s what matters. And if I want them to love themselves, I need to love myself no matter what. I’m about 15 lbs away from my goal weight and I’m going to embrace everything about myself, no matter what size. We went to the pool on Sunday and I didn’t think about what I looked like AT ALL. I soaked up every moment of giggling in the pool, getting pushed over, laughing, laughing, laughing. You can’t get those moments back and that is what I want to remember. Not that my thighs are too chubby or my stomach isn’t flat. No one will remember that about me and certainly not my kids. So thank you. So much :)
