Hi, I’m Roni! Also known as Veronica Noone. I’m a mom, wife, web publisher and overall geek. I used to teach web development full time at a community college but now I blog for a living.
I started blogging when I got pregnant with my son, “the baby” “the toddler”“the little guy”. Creating a web page became a way for me stay in touch with friends and family and keep them updated on the new addition that was about to bless us. (Yes, this is my belly, although the pictures was of my swollen feet but that gosh darn 8lb baby got in the way.)
I was immediately hooked on blogging. It gave me a way to be creative and communicate, two of my absolute favorite things to do (translation: I like to make stuff and I like to talk, A LOT). At first, my pregnancy and new baby took most of my blogging energy.
Then I started to post about my weekly Weight Watcher meetings. After a few weeks I decided I needed a “Weight Watchen” page. I started to use my blog as a means to vent, celebrate and share on my journey of reaching my weight loss goals.
Hmmmm I forgot to tell you. I had a weight issues, didn’t I. Well, it was more a “body image” issues. This is me in 1999. For a bit more about my weight history click here..
So back to this blog thing, Weight Watchen really started to become a complete outlet for me, It was my shoulder to cry on, my friend to high five and my coach to report to (Click here to see the original archives salvaged). I posted progression photos, recipes, tips, insights and pretty much anything else that inspired me. I liked sharing things I thought would be useful to others on their quest for healthiness.
Notice “Recipes” wasn’t linked. I used to post recipes but food was slowly taking over my blog (as I am a bit obsessed with, you know, food) so I decided to start another blog, a food blog, called GreenLiteBites. At this point, I’ve become a bit of a blogging maniac.
In addition to the two blogs I launched a blog community called BlogToLose. Having reached my goals using this medium I thought it only fair to helps others reach theirs. I truly believe blogging can help people live a more conscious life and living consciously is necessary if one is to lose weight and change habits. It took me YEARS to learn that and it’s one of the messages I want to share here, on Roni’s Weigh.
Never in a million years did I think my little community would become as popular as it did, BlogToLose now has over 5000 members!
Since blogging has become such a passionate healthy outlet for me I decided to gather those that feel the same way for a yearly conference. It’s called FitBloggin and I explain my motivation behind organizing it here in this post. I’m planning the 3rd Annual FitBloggin conference currently. It’s been a smashing success!
Back to this blog as I got a little sidetrack… 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.
