I would love your vote.


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,

    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.

      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.

    I voted! Your blog should win the “Best REAL-fitness-and-awesome-photos-with-great-recipes-and-terrific-writing-blog Award! :)

    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! :)

    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!

    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.

    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).

    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.

    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??
