One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Local TV, Inside Edition and now the Today show?!?

16 Comments 2558 views

I’m not sure what I stepped in this month but I’m on some kind of roll with traditional media. First “Good Morning America” picked up the stolen photo story. Then “Inside edition” contacted me. Then I had a planned spot on local TV to promote the winning Food Lion Cook-Off recipe. And now I’m headed to New York to to be on the “Today” show for Too Good To Be Healthy competition!

I don’t even know what to say. I’m speechless but I’m sure having fun!

So tonight I thought I’d take a minute to share a few clips. Honestly, I’m too exhausted to do anything else.

Good Morning America

They initially picked up the stolen photo story. I won’t re-embed as I already shared it here.

Inside Edition

They contacted me after seeing the “GMA” story. This isn’t the official video. Just an amateur recording from a friend. I’ll replace it if they end up sharing it on their web site.

WBFF Fox Baltimore

This was quite an experience. Let me just say I didn’t realize how quick and impersonal local media was.

I posted all the recipes from the contest on GreenLiteBites here. 

Today show

Here’s the contest I entered on a whim. Submitting my Bacon Cheese Inside Out Turkey Burgers.


And in four days I’ll be presenting that burger to Al Roker and Willie Geist.


What did I step in this month?

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.

    Hi Roni-
    I am not sure if I have ever commented. But, following your blog is both entertaining and inspirational. I always look forward to your posts. Hearing about your daily life with a job, hubby, two boys, home upkeep, a social life and time for fitness sounds a lot like my own. I appreciate your realistic, but can-do attitude! I am so pleased you are getting the attention you deserve.
