Nicole sent this to me via email. I’m not sure who to credit.
I loved it when I saw it, and it was EXACTLY what I needed today. Exactly.
I’m not 100%, but feeing better. I ate great. I worked out. I spend time with my boys. Life is good.

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.

    This was great for me because I feel very depressed today for no real reason because my life is fabulous and I have way too much to be thankful for.

    I saw this on someone’s blog yesterday and thought it was fricken brilliant.

    And so true. :D

    Hi Roni! Any chance your blue mood has to do with the end of daylight savings time? It always takes me a while to adjust. Sometimes just knowing that it is the cause of the blues helps. Feel better!

    Glad you are doing better Roni.

    I’m pretty fed up with my scale right now. I’m giving up on weighing myself for a while.

    Totally with you. And yes, we are more important than ANY number!

    I totally flipped the scale off this morning because it is up .2 from yesterday (yes, I’m a daily weigher but only to keep myself on track from day to day). I don’t judge myself based on it but it’s a way to see how certain foods effect my body. If I eat too much sodium or haven’t been eating enough veggies, I can tell. I don’t beat myself up and I do believe that my weight isn’t a reflection of who I am as a person. I have lost 5 inches off my waist and 5 inches of my hips alone since the end of July but have “only” lost 2 -3 pounds. Clearly I’ve built muscle. My legs are looking killer! Although – the past few weeks have been rough in terms of exercise; I was going 6 days a week. Now I’m lucky if I go 2 or 3 times…

    This is why the scale has gone to the closet and only gets pulled out when I “really” need to know…day to day I can tell by my mood and how my clothes fit.

    Roni, I hope you feel 100% soon. I use that description all the time, haha. You’re not the only one kinda down. I’m helping my mom draft the program for her mother’s funeral tomorrow. So many details that I’m unfamiliar with on top of the sadness of losing her and emotions that are associated with family and memories (good and bad). But my mom is experiencing diabetes stress and her numbers are going haywire and dr said its stress related. I got a real lesson while in the urgent care with her to bring her level down. I have to find ways to relieve my stress. I don’t work out on a reg basis esp now in the middle of all this but I need to. Dr Oz was just talking about ways to make ourselves happy yesterday. I think I’ll take at that again. Here’s a cyber hug for ya’.

    A humorous look at getting into a funk/depression. :)

    Hi Roni!! Just stopping by to say Hi! I have a NSV – even though I lost 2 pounds this week, I felt skinnier, and slipped into size 14 pants for the first time in years! Wahoo!!!

    You are doing great and you look awesome and you have the cutest kids – life is good!

    Hope you feel better :0)

    Well I weighed in this morning and was happily was down 1 lb, but my immediate reaction was “Take THAT scale!!” with an air punch! (there was a curse in there but I won’t add that part) Sometimes I do just want to chuck it out the window because it can be so friendly but so terrible all at once!
