I found your emails…

by Andie Mitchell on May 2, 2012


Friends that feel and act like my family,

This morning I went to my dark place- my email spam folder- and therein found hundreds of emails from you. Naturally, I was shocked. How did y-? Who put these there-?  None of it made sense. The only conclusion I’ve come to is:

Gmail hates you. Just generally not a fan of you. Perhaps all of Google, too; I can’t be sure. I’ll try to tell them to consider your good qualities, but you know how stubborn they can be…

I’m now attempting to read each and every one of them, but I’m also attempting to do a lot of things, and you know how I can be…

Expect my Email from a Reader series to resume shortly.

P.S. Thank you for all of your incredible kindness on my last few posts. I am in love with you.

Hii!! Im from México and I have been loving your blog for almost a year and a half. I just wanted to say hi and say that I really love you blog and how you live your life. Right now, im in my journey to lose some weight ( right now 13 kg/28 pounds) and to have a healthy life. For inspiration I read some of your blogs several times, because you make me hope of a future where I can enjoy healthy and not so healthy food with a good balance.

Also I wanted to ask, when is your book been published?? I really can´t wait to read it. Hope they make and amazon kindle version ;). Lots of love!!

Andie!! I’ve been missing so many of your recent posts–I just realized the RSS feed isn’t working. I had my nerdy hubby check it out and he said it’s not something he can fix from this end…do you know if this is something other readers are experiencing as well? I haven’t had a post from you since April 24 :(

Google and I have been at odds for years now.

Hope you don’t have to many emails to go through-I know how daunting that can be!

Oh! How delightful to hear. I’ve only just found you yesterday, but must admit to having quite a crush already!

I am on a weight loss journey and I LOVE your blog! I have shared it with many friends who also think you are wonderful. Thank you for your encouragement and wisdom :)

Jeez lady, I would totally read your blog if you weren’t so gorgeous… but you’re so gorgeous!

That’s all. I’ll go.

I just came across your blog today on Pinterest. I’ve enjoyed reading about your journey…very inspirational! I have experienced life, in the weight arena, mostly as a size 4/6. Eighteen years ago I was involved in an auto accident that uncovered a congenital brain and spinal cord malformation. I’ve under-gone 10 major surgeries during this time frame and gained 50 lbs. I eat regularly 1200 calories a day. Once-in-a-while I allow myself a treat and I try to figure those calories into my 1200 for the day. I know the only way I can reverse what is happening with my weight, is to get more exercise. As of 4 days ago, I am now facing knee replacement surgery. I share this just to say again, you are an inspiration. My almost, “two decades”, has come in what I’m hoping is toward the middle of my life. I’m 64 years old. Once my knee is repaired, I’m looking forward to falling in love with walking as a daily routine until the 50 lbs has disappeared. Thank you for letting me share part of my story. :)

I just found your blog through Pintrest and I am so grateful that I did! I want you to know you are my new hero! I am such a procrastionator when it comes to loosing the weight I need to. I keep telling myself I will start tomorrow, but tomorrow never really comes. I will excersise once a week and then tell myself I don’t have the time. But I know that I want and need to be healthier. Not only for myself but for my family. My son is almost 2 and is constantly on the go. I want to be healthier and be able to do more things with him. Wow, I really didn’t expect to go into such detail about my feelings. Anyways after spending almost two hours reading tons of things on your blog, I know that if i just start taking steps I will eventually get there. Thank you for sharing your journey! Congratulations!
