Hello! I was recommended to your blog by a friend. :)

Your blog inspires me in so many ways. Thank you so much! And Happy 2012!

I am new to your blog and I really liked looking through this recap. I especially loved the post about why you eat bagels. I hate when people label foods as forever bad. There really is something truly special about a yummy weekend breakfast.

Happy new year, Andie. I keep finding a new nugget of great advice wrapped in a wonderful story. You’re a life-saver.

Andie you have been so inspiring and always there even though you’ve been so busy with your books and travel and all. I now need to take heed of your teachings because I haven’t done well at all in the weight loss and good health departments. I recently had a mild heart attack and it was directly related to my overweight condition (over 60 lbs overweight)high blood pressure and diabetes. Keep inspiring because it is what I and alot of others need.

Wishing you a prosperous new year and looking forward to those books! :)

After I get some work done, I’m gonna read the ones I missed. Hope 2012 is a wonderful year for you!


Emily January 3, 2012 at 8:37 am

You are such an inspiration to me. I have about 100 pounds that I need to use, and reading your blog makes me feel that it is possible. Thanks. :)


Emily January 3, 2012 at 8:38 am

Oops! That should read “lose” instead of “use.”


Gabby January 3, 2012 at 4:53 pm

I stumbled upon your blog for the first time today and truly think I may have found my favorite. blog. ever. This is saying a lot considering I read at least 20 every day. Reading through these posts was so much fun and made me think about my own life in ways I hadn’t before. Though I certainly don’t need to loose weight and could actually gain some, your outlook on food is so healthy and inspiring. Thanks for sharing.


Mindy January 3, 2012 at 6:24 pm

Hi Andie….I found your blog last week and it is AMAZING! I have been reading your story and past posts when I get a few minutes.

What an inspiration you are to so many. I look forward to reading more posts and your 2 new books – congratulations!
