Roni Noone used her blog, Roni’s Weigh, to shed 70 pounds, start a running habit, get over a fear of weight training, complete her first marathon and run seven Tough Mudders, yes, seven. In 2011, she published her first cookbook based on recipes shared on the popular GreenLiteBites and brought the fourth annual FitBloggin’ conference to Portland, Ore., bringing together new and seasoned health, wellness, fitness and weight-loss bloggers for knowledge, personal growth and networking.
Recognizing the power of blogging, she also started a supportive online community called BlogToLose where more than 6,000 users are blogging to reach their own weight-loss goals.
Roni has represented and consulted for a wide variety of clients in the health and fitness industry including: Kellogg, The Laughing Cow, Liberty Mutual, HumanaVitality, Weight Watchers, Kraft, Vitalicious, Subway, Johns Hopkins University, Quaker, Nutrilite, ALDI and Pom.
