One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


A Thanksgiving Note….

15 Comments 1712 views

I’m signing off for a few days, but couldn’t leave without letting you know. All the Grandparents are due to arrive tomorrow and I am looking forward to a few days of uninterrupted family time.

I leave with a few links and a quote…

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow. ~Melody Beattie

The thing I’m most grateful for? My boys. Click here to see a my photo tribute to them.

I’ve been slacking in the food department on GreenLiteBites so I took a minute and recorded a (semi) quick video about my newest smoothie creation. Click here to check it out and see my Thanksgiving menu.


Other than that, I got my butt kicked in Body Combat today. I was a sweaty mess! My plan is to run a Turkey Trot on Thursday morning, but besides that I’ll be taking it easy in the workout department this week too. It’s time to just be.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

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’m most grateful for my boys too, both home from college for a few days. I wonder if, regardless of how old they are, that will always top our lists. Have a wonderful holiday.

    I love that picture of your boys. They are so precious.

    I’m so thankful that I found you on CNN because I can’t imagine my life if I hadn’t found people to help me cook differently, more diversely and more healthily.
