Roni (Veronica Noone)

That’s me. Roni.

Isn’t it funny how sometimes you need to define, or redefine for that matter, things before you can move on?

Today I added this paragraph to my About Page

It started as Weight Watchen, became Roni’s Weigh and now it’s Just Roni. After 7 years the blog has changed because I have changed. Just Roni is my personal journey. I share what goes through my head as a recovering dieter. I post race recaps and training ideas as a new runner. I try to inspire and give tips on how to be active with the family by sharing my own. I answer reader questions and post a monthly podcast. Overall, this blog is my personal journal and I used it to inspire myself and others as I try to live a more conscious, healthy life.

Over the next few days you may see some changes around here. I bought and made a new header with a new (transferred from tag line. Even though Roni’s Weigh isn’t going anyplace, it’s still here and will still be tied to my online identify, I felt like this step to be “just me” without the pretense of weight or weight loss is a big one for me. In a way, I needed to free myself of the “weigh” so I can move past it.

Not sure if that makes sense to anyone but me, but there you go.

Anyway, I’m not going anywhere and I have no big plans to change my blogging style or frequency or anything like that. It’s just a new name and honestly, I did it for me.

I’ve also started a new Newsletter list. It’s been in my side bar for about a week now. Before then the only way to subscribe to Roni’s Weigh was via RSS which notifies you whenever I post new content. That’s great if you want to be aware as soon as I post something new. However, if you’d rather just receive an occasional email from me highlighting recent posts please use the form below…

I promise not to bombard your email. I’m thinking monthly updates, if that.

SO… with that news out of the way I have other fun announcements! Hop on over the GreenLiteBites. I have TONS of stuff going on over there and in T-2 hours I plan on doing a live cooking show. Yup, you heard me.. LIVE!

I figured.. why not?

Note: I realize a lot of you may not see this in time and I apologize. The “show” will be recorded and if it works out with no major catastrophes, I plan on scheduling more live shows in the future. This is just a test for me to see if it’s even possible.

Click here for the other GreenLiteBites Announcements and here for the GreenLiteBites Live Show!

Later.. I have lots to do before showtime! :)

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 LOVE the idea of being a recovering dieter. Sums up where I want to get to in life. I’m so excited about your changes!!!!! Way to go, Roni!!

    I love the new duds and I understand perfectly. Like Lara said, I hope that one day I can be a recovering dieter too! I’m going to be in the middle of making dinner when you are on, but I will be watching;-) Good luck tonight!

    Congratulations Roni! This makes so much sense. You continue to inspire and I will continue to read.

    New name sounds to me that you can fit more areas in your life to this blog than just weigh issues. I totally understand your need to change the name. No matter what, you keep motivating me and I love to read your blog. Motivating on line – that is just what you do !

    Love the changes and the focus on just YOU.

    Love the outlook, how wonderful! I find it funny that I have visited your web site under all your incarnations!


    April 19, 2012

    You have indeed been motivating me for a long time! Love the new look!


    April 19, 2012

    Totally forgot about weight watchen!!! I guess I’ve been a reader for a long time!

    AWESOME!! I have been maintaining for a few years now and love reading your blog. Enjoy all the food ideas and I am loving the bootcamp videos you are posting. My husband even brought me home an old skidloader tire! My neighbors now think I am crazy flipping a tire around my yard!!!

    Love it! It seems like the natural progression given all you’ve done! Consider me along for the ride!

    Great job on your new changes. Your blog is so motivating and inspirational and so real. What you post about always seems to hit home with me. I look so forward to your new posts. Even though you might not hear it often enough, what you’re doing is so great and it helps so many people in more ways that you know. Thanks for a great blog. Looking forward to being a loyal follower for a long time to come :)

    Congrats, Roni!

    I love the message behind JustRoni! :) Congratulations!


    April 20, 2012

    I was always kind of surprised that you hadn’t done this sooner. There is so much more to you than just your weight loss. Congratulations!!!

    I love it! I have been wondering what change I might someday make for my own blog – if I want to break away from my original name, how I might evolve as over time I get off the diet rollercoaster and want to find other things to talk about. I did get worried though when I asked readers about it and many said they identify me with my blog moniker. Unlike you, I don’t have my name as part of it so suspect the transition would be harder. (Not to mention I don’t have the tech knowledge for all the little changes!)

    I love it! I love the name and change is exciting and fun. :)


    April 20, 2012

    I totally get it. And I think it shows so much more growth as a person, woman and mom than anything shown on a scale, daily intake diary, or bra label could ever show. Way to go.

    Love this, and love you. It makes perfect sense. It’s wonderful watching you “becoming” who you are, a day at a time, a season at a time.
