I LOVE all your recipes and get so excited when you post a new one. I love how open and honest and hilarious you are on here and you are such an inspiration!

Thank you thank you Meagan! Love your story— in the middle of my journey right now— eating healthier, exercising daily and finally seeing myself in the mirror with a smile: Not sure the topic will be helpful in my pursuit of healthy food though! So I found your blog last night after a friend on facebook posted one of your recipes it was the mini lasagnes, so cute! Anyway, I was up all night, and first thing I did when I dropped the kids at school was come back and read some more!

I am just wondering, do you have any before pictures? I have committed to making at least one thing off your blog each week: I relate so much to your story. I will definitely be checking back! I was reading through your posts and wanted to comment on how wonderful your blog is…then I saw you live in Seattle! I moved to Seattle almost 2 years ago with my boyfriend, we should get together sometime: I might be your new biggest fan — so glad I found your blog.

Keep up the great work! So you are not working in the entertainment industry anymore? I came across your blog tonight and am sitting here on the verge of tears. But your words are wise and so full of inspiration and truth. I have to do that. That number is just a tool, albeit a powerful one. Thank you so much for sharing this piece of light on the internet. So glad I found your blog.

You lost pounds, that is amazing! A friend posted a picture of your coffee cake muffins on her facebook after making them. I asked her what they were and she gave me your link. You are truely amazing and I giggle everytime I start reading. I sent the link to a friend today and told her that your words move me like a well written novel. I found your blog on Pinterest and I am so psyched to make those buffalo chicken rolls, but more excited to have found your blog.

Congrats on your success finding happiness and gaining health. I look forward to interjecting some of your sage advice into my own life and trying some of your recipes!!

Hey Andie I just want to say that I love your blog! Your food always looks delicious and your photos are gorgeous! You are an inspiring woman: What a joy to read your blog. Thanks for sharing your journey and your recipes. Your blog is so inspiring! You are an amazing writer. I look forward to more inspiring words. Thanks for sharing your journey with us. I just found your blog.. I stumbled upon your website and see that you lost lbs. I am currently in the early stages of losing about that much myself.

How did you do it? Any tips or suggestions you might want to share? I am really glad to have found your blog, I need inspiration!! Thanks so much for sharing! You inspire me to cook lighter for myself and my family! Not only do you speak what I feel, but we went to the same college and I think around the same time … so I feel even more connected to you!

Kick it up a notch! So here I am at work and sucked into your blog: What an awesome lady you are! The working yourself to death at the gym is nor was it ever my thing. So happy to have been connected you! Oh my, I follow you on twitter and know you through foodista, yet now I realize I never knew you. I am so happy to discover your writing and your story. Congratulations on your book! I have to say, your boyfriend is one heck of a lucky guy.

I have some buddies coming over this weekend to watch football, and am planning on making the buffalo egg rolls. Buy her flowers, tell her she is beautiful, and appreciate what you have. Cheers, yah lucky dog! I came to look at the buffalo wraps recipe and found someone like my sisters and me. We have all suffered from emotionally eating, for reasons ranging from raising our younger siblings basicly on our own to sexual abuse to watching a another sister die slowly and painfully.

It is empowering to hear the voice of someone who has found the healthy end of weightloss and is willing to tell the story of the past and not discount it. You are an inspiration: I love your story and your beautiful smile. Looking forward to browsing through more of your blog. By the way, good luck on your books! I am an Andi as well! And I too am 26yo.

Thank you for your blog! I look forward to reading about your experience and getting your tips and maybe a few good recipes?! I gained alot of weight my first year in college and I hated to work out, but I still did it twice a day.

I think the stress of having to work out made it hard to lose weight so I gave up the gym and just started cutting portions and walking and the weight all came off. You have such and incredible story and are an absolutely amazing writer. For the first time, in a very long time, I feel inspired and hopeful. You are beautiful, then and now…. Happy to hear that you can enjoy a burger now and then, in moderation. Oh, and then walk Green lake of corse! I just came across your blog and am amazed by your weight loss and dedication to staying true to yourself instead of being a slave to the scale and gym.

And now that I read that you only live about 45 minutes north of me, I want you to come to my house and kick my butt into gear and cook me yummy healthy food: Wow, what a lucky day it was for me to happen upon your recipe on Pinterest, which lead me to your incredibly witty and thought provoking blog.

Nice to meet you, Andie. I look forward to more of your creativity, humor and wit. My good friend Lynsay shared it with me and this is what i just shared on my Facebook about you:. Thank you Lynsay Horton for sharing with me! It is incredible how we adapt as we learn about ourselves, our needs, what we can dissolve and what is worth the fight!

Definitely check it out! I stumbled across your awesome blog via Pinterest. I have a 3 year old and gained close to 90 pounds while I was pregnant. Reading your blog has given me new hope! Someone pinned your blog on Pinterest today, so I followed the link. May I ask what it is you are writing? Do you have a publisher? I always dream of writing for a living — but the process is difficult.

BTW, just found your blog and read your exercise history…and cried so hard. I can more than relate. Too much to say…but not the strength to say it now.

I give you a lot of Kudos. I myself have gone on the weight loss journey. I have lost pounds but still have around to lose. I was so proud of myself and what I was able to achieve with a healthy dose of exercise and eating right. I find though the last bit of weight to be very discouraging to lose. It comes off slower, I find it harder to see the end of the tunnel now but about half way through I could see it clearly.

I saw your blog posted somewhere…. I can not wait to read more and see what advice I can gain from you! Right now i feel like you back when you joined the YMCA.. Thank you for sharing your story.. I love your blog, your perspective, your word choices, your recipes. Thanks so much for sharing. I just discovered it today. I really appreciate your inspiration!

I am so glad I stumbled upon this. Much like you, I grew up in the kitchen. Much like you, I adore good! Much like you, I also have sciatica although I have that nagging pain in my right buttock- not my left. And much like you, I never really enjoyed the gym, although I love being active if that makes sense.

I also just recently moved to Seattle, and I sold my car. I walk to work now 2 mi round trip and everywhere else I can. I hope that my lifestyle change can help me succeed like it has for you. You have inspired me to stay positive and keep trying. I have to ask… in your exercise history, where were those hiking pictures taken? I thought to myself they looked like Mt. Then again, every hiking picture makes me think of Mt. I love this blog…found it just now on pintrest. Your blog is incredible — so beautifully-crafted and organized… I simply want to gobble it up!

You are definitely being book-marked: I love that you are so real! I love this blog, and I hate blogs — I tend to find them boring: I also adore that you have a firm grasp on the English language and grammar weird, I know, but verbiage really bothers me! I have been reading your blog for a couple of weeks now after stumbling across it on Pinterest, and I just had to tell you how much I adore you and your site.

As a college student, you make weight loss and maintenance seem attainable—not an easy feat. Thank you for sharing your story. You really are an inspiration… And quite witty, I might add!

I love seeing some of my favorites and learning about new sites. I would love to have my blog www. I provide researched perspectives on food and healthier recipes. We do not need to eat fish to get those benefits from fish oil, we can take a supplement for that and there is too much good evidence linking fish consumption with higher rates of breast cancer, plus the pollutants in fish are of a major concern.

Whether it is the pollution in fish or the cancer promoting effect from the high level of animal protein, eating fish is linked to a higher rate of breast cancer. When 23, women were followed as part of the Diet, Cancer and Health study, what stood out most was the link between fish consumption and breast cancer.

Surprisingly, women consuming little or no fish were found to have approximately half the incidence of breast cancer compared to high consumers of fish. This study should not be ignored. It received scant media attention. Frequent fish consumption has also been linked to increased occurrence of thyroid cancer.

If fish are consumed on a regular basis it should be a maximum of once per week and it should be of the cleanest variety, not those in the highest range of mercury or other pollutant contamination. That limits the choice in most cities in the continental US to ocean perch, shrimp, haddock, scallops, talapia, hake and trout, eliminating swordfish, pike, mackerel, shark, lobster, tilefish, grouper , sea bass, marlin, snapper and halibut as simply too high in mercury and bluefish, herring, clams, crab and oysters as simply too polluted.

Most other fish are in-between these two categories. Therefore, I do not recommend the eating of fish more than a few times a month, and I would much rather people who eat some animal products utilize eggs, especially those high omega-3 eggs and white meat fowl, such as turkey, chicken or fat-free dairy.

To conclude, if you want to eat animal products on a regular basis, limit the consumption to one or two servings of two eggs or egg whites, or one serving of eggs and one serving of white meat turkey a week, or one serving of eggs and one serving of low-fat dairy and one serving of white meat or an occasional fish.
