One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Whoa, What a Wednesday Weigh In!

… not because of what the scale said because, well, you know I didn’t get on.


Why would I? I didn’t want anything to take away anything from last week. I was off grid in more ways than one and that included not worrying about what I was eating or how I wasn’t running or not going to the gym or any of that.

Nope — wasn’t going to do it to myself.

Speaking of last week, I posted pictures on TheUnworldlyTravelers today and I can’t lie, it totally made me tear up. Thinking about the week just makes me smile. Click here to see my recap.

As I said on Facebook, 8 years ago my son was a HUGE — if the not THE — reason I decided it was time to lose weight for good and stop the dieting cycle of hell. I would have never imagined taking a vacation like that before him. Now I hope to make our adventures a yearly tradition.

Anyway, that’s not why I’m extraordinarily late with this Wednesday Weigh In. My lateness is due to the unexpected interview with “Good Morning America”!

Yup, I was shocked, too! They called me this morning and wanted to talk about the story of the stolen photos. Before I knew it I had a film crew in my house and I was discussing weight-loss tips with a corespondent from ABC.

I THINK it will be airing tomorrow at the 8 o’clock hour of “GMA.” They haven’t confirmed yet.

SO… I’m so sorry about missing weigh in this morning. Please forgive me. I’ll get back into the groove next week!

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.

    Well, those idiots stealing your photos ended up doing you a favor!!!!! It’s amazing how life works. You better prepare a “Hey, GMA people!” post, something tells me you’re about to get A LOT of new traffic…

    woohoo for your press coverage! i don’t have cable set up in my apartment, but i hope someone can post a clip of GMA or something when it airs. glad you had a good vacation too.

    i weighed myself the past few days, and it wasn’t good. i think i will start posting my weigh ins here to stay accountable.

    HW (2/2004): 171
    CW: 126.4
    GW: 122 (to maintain WW lifetime)

    i’m almost 5 lbs from my goal weight after the past couple of months or so. i just moved in with my boyfriend in july and it is wreaking havoc on my eating and my daily routine in general (he works crazy hours, cooks a lot, and wants us to eat the same food, so i have to plan my meals better to save points for dinner). i gave up my AM coffee last week and am tackling my sugar intake this week, and i think those two things will stop the cycle of crazy stress eating at least. i just need to remember that WW works and trust the process.

    That’s awesome! Can’t wait to watch it :)

    I’ve been weighing in everyday again :( it’s doing a number on my mood. Especially because I’m still up and I appear to be up again. I’m up a total of 6 lbs into 2 months. Ugh I need to get it together

    Those bad guys won’t know what hit them–sorry there are so many people that have no character in the computer world.
    But you stand for the way it should be–congrats to you!

    Hey Roni. I know you are a member at MFP, someone mentioned your story on the forums. You should stop by and say hi!


    August 22, 2013

    Wow! I am currently watching them talk about you as “coming up in this hour”! Holy cow….amazing!!!! I weigh in at my Dr Appt on 9/4….it won’t be pretty I’m sure but teachers go back on Monday so I’m hoping getting back to work and a more regular schedule will be just what I need to get back on track. 15 weeks into this pregnancy and I’m exhausted and not exercising and falling down the slope but trying to claw my way back out.

    I just saw you on Good Morning America! You looked great and sounded like a professional. I think this may lead to other things for our Roni!….

    I happened across your blog after reading the article about the stolen weight loss photos… and was properly sucked in. I’ve been reading for over an hour and I am absolutely impressed, not only with everything you’ve done, but with the incredible resource you provide for other’s finding their way in the journey to better health.

    And your river rafting photos… AWESOME!

    Looking forward to spending more time around here :)

    Roni-I saw you on GMA this a.m. I listen while I get ready for work and had to do a double take when it was you! Congrats on the interview!
