I would love your vote.

by Andie Mitchell on March 6, 2012


I’ve caught wind that my blog is nominated for ‘Best Weight Loss Blog’ by Fitness Magazine.


I cannot tell you how humbled I am. For once, I won’t be able to articulate how much it means

to me

or my mother.

But if you could,

if you would,

I would LOVE your vote. In fact, I’d cyber smooch you squarely on the lips.

To vote, please click here: Best Weight Loss Blog

When you arrive at the link above, you’ll click the ‘Vote’ button and you’ll likely see a pop up box asking you to register for an account- a very quick and painless process. I totally get the hassle of it all, but please know that I’m grateful for your time and energy.

Two dozen thank you’s covered in frosting,

How exciting! I don’t believe I’ve commented in the past but had to tell you I really enjoy your blog!


Amanda March 6, 2012 at 10:35 am

You’re most certainly the best weight loss blog that I have come across. Voted.


Becky March 6, 2012 at 10:55 am

Love love love your blog and wanted to be sure and vote, but the site was a bit confusing; after taking me to the page to register, which I did, it wouldn’t take me back to the voting page and I couldn’t find it; I think the vote was counted somehow, though, because when I came back to your blog and clicked again, the orange “vote” button changed to a gray “voted” button. Anyway, hope it did go through and that you win hands down! Thanks for all your amazing writing and insights– I am older than your mom but have learned a great deal from you.

It won’t work — I tried to create an account, it wouldn’t work. I tried to log in with Twitter, it wouldn’t work. I keep getting “null”!

I just voted for you! Hope you win!


Ashley March 6, 2012 at 12:58 pm

I have a naturally high meiobaltsm, so I have always eaten junk and not cared. However now I am almost an adult, and I realize that I cannot continue to eat this way without becoming a diabetic or get a heart attack or something terrible. I am 126 pounds and 5’6, so weight is not a problem. It’s just my eating habits. Also, I’m skinny, but I’m not fit. So I’m looking for an exercise and eating program that would help me eat right, because I need structure, otherwise I will just buy junk and eat it. Seriously, I need help! This is an example of my daily intake of food (please be warned, it is grossly unhealthy):- breakfast: don’t eat it. i don’t get hungry til after 9 at sometime, and i’m not a fan of breakfast foods.- snack: at school i get hungry, so i will eat the granola bar from my lunch, and often buy a bag of chips from the vending machine. i also drink 2 juice boxes.- lunch: my mom typically packs me gross sandwiches, so i will buy another bag of chips, or not eat.- after school: i’m starving. i often buy a large bag (like full size, typically people only buy for groups) of chips to snack on throughout the rest of the night. i will finish this before i go to sleep. i also get a litre of coke to drink, i finish by bedtime also.- supper: subway sandwich, mcdonalds, a w, wendy’s. something convenient. if i go to subway i get a 6 inch sandwich and chips with pop, if i go for fast food i usually get a burger and fries and pop. a w i get poutine and a root beer float.- night time: finish off chips and pop. Seriously. I need help.

Voter #300!!!


abby March 7, 2012 at 7:54 am

I’m in! I lost 6 lbs in the 1st week after I first read your blog. (Which may be an indicator of how badly I was doing before that…) I come and reread all the entries like “What I Miss” and “The Journey” all the time, when I’m losing my mojo. Like today. Congrats on the nomination…you totally deserve it! :)


Liz @ IHeartVegetables March 7, 2012 at 8:05 am

The nomination is what led me to your blog! Congrats! :) I can’t wait to start reading your blog!


JaNelle March 7, 2012 at 9:58 am

Done! Where’s the frosting? LOL


grace March 7, 2012 at 11:25 am

T-kia March 7, 2012 at 12:20 pm

I was number 369…way to lead the pack!!


SallyBR March 7, 2012 at 3:10 pm

Voted. I don’t comment often, but here I am to say hello…

(I confess that my poor vision, tired at the end of the day, made me read “I’d cyber smooch you squarely on the HIPS”, and it took me a while to stop laughing once I realized my misreading)

Good luck! I hope you win!


tina March 7, 2012 at 4:03 pm

Keep up the fantastic work. Reading from Saskatchewan, Canada!


Sylvia March 8, 2012 at 8:50 pm

I went there and voted right away–loyalty. Then I checked out the other contenders. They were all pretty cool, but it did confirm what I already kinda knew; this blog is something special. Keep up the good work.


Heather@SugarDish(Me) March 9, 2012 at 5:12 am

Tried to vote 4 times. It hates me, I think. I will try again- you COMPLETELY deserve to win that. Motivational, inspirational, positive- and straight honesty (and a super huge thank you for that).


Caitlin Hayden March 9, 2012 at 3:07 pm

You deserve it! You are so entertaining and inspiring. Thank you!


Laura March 10, 2012 at 8:14 am

I voted! You deserve it, girl!


LMF March 14, 2012 at 2:37 pm

Just voted for you! I guess I’ve never really considered it a “weight loss blog” though. It’s one of my favorite go-to’s for recipes with lots of humor and eloquent writing and a bit of inspiration to stay healthy thrown in too :) Do they have an award for that?! Good luck! And congrats on the nomination.


Tiffany March 14, 2012 at 6:17 pm

I tried to vote but I can’t get the page to load. I even tried to do a search on Fitness Magazine’s website. Any tips??
