    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.

    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! :)

    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. :)

    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.

    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!
