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! This is such a cool blog.
There are so many blogs yet so few that really get a person. Bookmarking for many futures. I just found your blog while searching Pinterest for yummy recipes… you are an inspiration! Thank you for writing everyday and telling your story the good and bad.
I love your heartfelt writing, your candor and your honesty. I resolve to plan ahead with lunch this year. I do pretty well on dinners but love the prepare salad veges ahead of time idea. I am also loving the fluffy oatmeal recipe, off to try it now although here in Australia is it 30 degrees celcius here, our summer and may be a little hot! I love the plan ahead nature of breakfast too.
If I was to make a massive pot for five days would I just times all the ingredients by 5? I am so excited to find this site. Thank you for sharing your story with everyone, I am happy to know that there is someone out there that did look like me and successfully changed there life, I have been up and down on my weight since I can remember, I have started eating right and exercising more, but I do enjoy the good things but in moderation.
Thank you and good luck on your ventures. I love your site. I am so glad I found it. I was at my heaviest recently lbs and I am now down to and my first goal is to reach lbs. Thank you for sharing your very inspirational and motivating story. I am so excited to hear that you are writing 2 books. Thank you so much Amy! Yes, the first book to be released Spring will be a weight loss memoir.
The second is a cookbook: I just happened upon your blog and love, love, love it! I came across your blog through Pinterest. I am so inspired by your story and your journey! I also struggled and continue to sturggle with my weight. Hearing your story is def great motivation and inspirational. I cant wait to try some of your recipes and i also cant belive you lost weight in Italy!! So excited to start my journey. First of I am from Walpole so this is exciting and am currently in the whole weightloss stage, I have more to loose than you and you are inspiring.
It makes me feel so good to read this blog and encourages me. I just need to make changes and move more. Thank you for this. So I have finally decided to leave a comment. I come and check on your blog about twice a week for the past year or so. Can You Say for Dinner? I literally had to come to this post to find that your name is Andie. So hello Andie Mitchell, my name is Kyle. I just wanted to thank you for the many amazing recipes and stories. I have been a pescetarian for the past 4 years and your blog gave me that love for food again.
Seeing your pictures of the beauty of food has made me appreciate it again. It has really grown into a passion for me, thanks to you. So I just wanted to thank you. His all time favorite is the Roasted Broccoli. He can never have enough!! I have tried 2 of the recipes already and am doing another tonight. I am diabetic and trying to lose 35lbs and you have recipes in here that I can eat and not feel guilty.
I love Your blog. The recipes are a blast and fun! And thanks for sharing your journey. So appreciate What You Do! You are a great writer and your story of weight loss is one that I share. I will be back for more.
I found your blog from a recipe posted on Pinterest by one my favorite authors Laurie Notaro. I have been eating better and living a generally better lifestyle for a few months now, and all the good ideas I can find, the better! Thanks for the help!!!
I have struggled with my weight for most of my 39 years. Thank you for sharing…. What a wonderful, inspiring blog!! Thank you so much for sharing your journey with us— and continuing to do so: I am so excited to have found you!
You are honest with yourself and here on your blog. You have given me inspiration to be a better person for me. The candy store by my house makes a jalapeno stuffed with peanut butter, dipped in chocolate. They ship too, but I think that you should make them and then make a blog post about how to make them, so I can make them too!
I love your website. I have been overweight all my life, like you I reached a point not long ago where it was scary… so far I am 20lbs lighter and still moving. The sad thing is I actually work in fitness, I help other people get healthy but for a long time I had a false perception of myself. Your blog has added a whole new outlook to some of the ideals I have been looking into. I just wanted to say thank you!
I will recommend this to many of my clients. I am embarking on this journey myself. Your blog is my new favorite website! You are a gem and an absolute inspiration! I look forward to your books.
