My GMA Appearance!

Here’s my short clip on Good Morning America this morning!

I’m glad this is getting some attention. People’s weight-loss photos are stolen all the time to sell bogus products. The more we talk about it, the less people will fall for these lies.

    sorry that this happened, but VERY happy that you are taking the high road (trail??) and I hope that this WILL serve as a warning for people not to fall for some BS quick fix crapola. Rock on, Roni!!

    Way to turn a crummy action into something that will open people’s eyes and hopefully save some from buying into the ‘quick fixes’ that pop up in our news feeds daily! Thanks for being tenacious!

    What a freaky feeling! This takes “out-of-body-experience” to a different level. Good for you for getting your story out.

    So happy GMA featured your story! I’m sure it will direct people to your site and they will get real, practical help. I couldn’t help but smile when I saw the Duchess featured along with you in your story, how cool is that :)

    I’m so pleased to see how GMA edited what was probably a long conversation. They could have easily misrepresented your message – that it’s about healthy living, not weight loss per se – but they didn’t at all. And you were so poised & professional!

    Hugs to you Roni – I just sent you an e-mail. I’ve been going through the same thing with some of my work (I’m a photographer) being stolen for a hypothyroidism drug. GRR!!!!!

    All I could think was I hope someone who’s using those photos was watching and dropped their spoon in their Cocoa Puffs bowl from shock. Hahaha I am all about fighting back in situations like this! Yay for you!

    WOO HOO. Glad this is getting exposure! What a bunch of creeps. I hope you got some $ out of this too (not that $ is what it’s all about, but seriously, I would have asked for a settlement).
