My cookbook, Eating in the Middle: Good Morning America, Dr. My blog was recently called the best weight loss blog by Health Magazine Oct issue.

Keep in touch if you ever have any questions! I just bought WW because the cover attrated my attention. I lost my Mom to complications of Diabetes 10 yrs. So I try each morning to make better choices in my consumption of food, and exercise. I give into temptation, and wind up gaining the lbs I lose. I am so excited to have found your website, and I am very inspired by your journey.
I am hoping that I will discover a simular journey for myself: Try not to look at the big picture all the time. I found that just staying present- living fully in each moment of the day- really helped me to make the best decisions and stay with it.
What a fabulous way to exercise! And group classes are fantastic for so many reasons! Thank you so much Andrea: I am trying to fill up on veggies and fruits. Staying away from processed foods would benefit me in more ways then one.
I seem to always feel bloated and sluggish after eating some breads, and I am lactose intolerant. So the fruits and veggies seem to make me feel more energetic and lighter feeling. I will keep you posted, might check in every so often to let you know my progress. I am following you on twitter: He is very supportive: Andrea… your story is soooo inspirational. I hope your blog helps many others with their food intake.
We need a more healthy population. I just found out about this website, and I must say this: I LOVE you already. Well, I adore you. Your English was fantastic! Thank you so much for your kindness!
I hope you cook some of these recipes and let me know if you like them! Love the blog, KerriAnn forwarded it to me.
Keep up the good work and will enjoy reading more. I remember your Mom and love the note you blogged about her using the internet and email. So fantastic to hear from you!

Your blog is so inspiring. You are a wonderful writer. My husband and I are starting the Hunger Challenge today. I really get inspiration and ideas from your postings. Keep up the good work! 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.

My blood pressure is down and have been able to decrease my medication.
I have kept the weight off for almost a year. Even during the holidays when I cheated a bit and an occasional Twix. Seems to be a very balanced diet. The only thing you lose is your sanity and money if you are truely trying to lose alot of wieght this is not for you. Please aviod the same trappings I did the advertisement was misleading. Cut out ALL fast food drink losts of water and move.
I agree with Cristy!! This program cuts your calories way too low to be healthy long not part of a medical field and have no medical training.
The scrubs are deceptive as is the advertisements and representations. If you want any information, email me at alstewart2 sbcglobal. Do you get a response to the corp office number, if so I would love for you to share. Did anyone find a number to a corporate office- I am very unhappy with them and how I was treated- I was not losing the 3 to 5 pounds quaranteed and now am just getting blown off by the center.
I certainly do not agree with how you felt you were treated by the Slim for Life representative, as she should have maintained a professional attitude and responded to your needs with understanding,and explaniations, rather than insult. The result would be that as people were leading a healthy lifestyle, taking care of their medical issues with herbals, the Drs industry would be negatively affected.
I have used herbal supplements for many medical issues that I have encountered in my life with little to no side affects, I have been able to avoid the Dr Appointments and the prescriptions, with the long and distubing list of possible side affects that I may encounter which is longer and more damaging than the symptoms to the initial health issue I was encountering.
There are alternative solutions out there. I have several friends that have been very successful with the Slim 4 life plan as well as other plans that are availble.
The internet is a great resource for research. You are absolutely right. I was saying the same thing when I was reading what the doctor said. What in the world could an herbal drug do to hinder your prescription drug except for maybe keep the prescription side affects from killing you?
You should really be looking at what that prescription is doing to your system as opposed to the herbs. I was on Weight Watchers for over a year and lost alot of weight but did not stick with it so I have gained half of it back. I just joined Slim 4 Life because you can talk to someone for support daily one on one instead of once a week in front of a large group.
I have high blood pressure and high colest. Can you tell me what program they use for people with these conditions? I started slim4life Dec. I did loose down to lbs and really maintained at about to as the year finished out — however I began to show symptoms of something.
Went to doctor and turns out that my liver has been affected and that something has brought this on — I do wonder if it was all of the thermoboost powder which I drank on a daily basis for the year along with the thermo snacks required during weight loss. If you have had a similar issue please respond back to me ASAP — I am unable to find out much since slim4life is now slimgenics and they no longer allow past participates to purchase product.
I am interested in anything that might be similar to my situation. Hi, I did slim 4 life as well and lost about 35 lbs. Before I started, I had normal liver function tests.
When I had my blood tested, post S4L i had elevated liver function x2 , I recently went back and had it checked again and now I have elevated liver function x3. The only thing in my life that changed during that time was that I was on S4L. I highly suspect that either the carb blockers or the red grays have affected my liver.
I am no longer on S4L and I no longer take any of their supplements. I never used the thermoboost powder but I took all the supplements as directed during the program. I too am being evaluated for elevated liver function. It started with a dull ache in the liver area right after I started slimgenics. I have an ultrasound tomorrow, will keep you posted. I have been off the supplements for at least a month but am still having the pain….
I started slim4life in May, at lbs…am now at and while I love the way I look, my hair is falling out and my kidney function is out of whack as well as my ferritin levels have bottomed out.
I would just like to know how the product work? Another thing is how much it cost to get started with the program?
Is this something i could do without paying a large amount of money? What are the key elements to losing weight on this program? What makes this program different from the other programs out? Slim 4 Life is a good program. They do teach you the essentials of eating healthy. However, the weight that you lose is great but, you may also be losing muscle since they do not incorporate working out into the program. You do take supplements such as a daily vitamin, essential fatty acids fish oil and an appetite suppressant they call the metabolizer not to mention the protein bars and shakes that run more than I went from to in a short amount of time.
Once, I hit I plateaued miserably. I did all that they asked me to do and could not lose any more weight. I was basically told, they could not help me. I left Slim 4 Life and they still call me wanting me to come in. I work out now and still eat healthy but, I eat corn, carrots, and cheese.
All of which is forbidden until you lose ALL the weight. I am happy and healthy and still am losing in a healthy way on my own.. Wish I had read this page before I spent almost two thousand dollars on Slim 4 Life. I was on the program for aproximately three and a half weeks going to the store four times a week for weigh ins.
I lost six pounds by drinking tons of water and taking there suplements which ending up making my heart race. I ended up in the Doctors office thinking I was having a heart attack. Believe me there is no money back guarantee.
This turned out to be one big mistake….. Hi, l feel the same way two thousand dollars on slim 4 life. The pills did not do a thing for me. I need to get some of my money back. I tried slim for life a year ago and it is so disappointing.
Once you break the diet down you are allowed to eat between calories a day! I spent over 2K on slim for life to lose 30 pounds. I took all the nasty pills and drank the nasty power boost and did the whole thing. I lost about 28 in 12 weeks. But I am healthier and happier. I was not obese but took off the weight for vanity. I lost 9 lbs in 3 weeks…. Dieting is about Calories in and Calories out…. I only had 18 lbs. I feel very jittery and weak. I am a mother and cannot really focus and be there for my kids the way I need to be because of the way I feel.
I did the Atkins diet years ago and went from a size 12 to a 2 in months and never felt like this. I have lost maybe 4 lbs. Now here i am at 5 months and one thing i have noticed is that even though i am not doing the diet that well, i am still using supplements and i am loosing hair like crazy. At first i thought it might be my age as i am 58, or maybe a medication, even though i had been on it for months, but this is crazy loss.
Yes, I too was losing hair like crazy. I have very fine thin hair so this was a real concern. I also thought it might be my age as I was 50 the first time I did the program.
I gained all the weight back and went back a second time and had the same issue with hair loss. I only wanted to loose 23 lbs. I did loose 6 lbs, though, and felt pretty good.
Any by the way, my stomach started to hurt really bad about the 4th week into the program… and yes, this is absolutely a no money back program, which to me is horrible. If the pills are causing sickness, their should be some type of refund, even half would be great.
My reason for trying the program was to get off blood pressure meds, which for 4 weeks I did. I am also trying the green smoothies now, and walking more.
I really want to get off the meds for good and loose the weight as well…. I may be different from all. My wife got in to slim for life three months ago weighing LB. But now she is LB she really enjoys the food she is really energetic.
So she loves it and she said it is worth paying the money. Because she tried south beach diet and all appetite suppresant pills which most of them deprive her sleep and reacting with medication which she used to take. So I may not agree with you in this matter. But thank you for giving me the oppurtunity to express my opinion.
I lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks. I was very excited. I highly recommend it. It was way to expensive for us. You said you followed the food rules and lost… did you also use any of the over the counter bars or thurmal boost pills to try to help it along??
Find Omega3 and a Carb blocker. My mom paid for the program and lost about 45 lbs in 4 months. I am on it right now and have lost about 16 lbs in 5 weeks. This is what I eat: Tuna or chicken for lunch, a protein bar I prefer the Zone bars and chicken or fish for dinner.
The first 3 days are only protein and veggies no carrots, corn, or peas. Very simple diet to follow. My husband has lost 20 lbs in 5 weeks. My mom started this diet a few years ago and lost 45 lbs in about 4 months. The first place you lose it is your stomach which is great but you must follow the program which is fairly simple.
My husband and I have been doing the diet for about 5 weeks. I have lost 16 lbs and my husband has lost 20 lbs. My mom gave me the diet plan. I ate 2 boiled eggs and 1 orange for breakfast.
I felt satisfied and lost 5 lbs the first 3 days. After that I added in one starch per day and a protein bar I prefer the Zone bars-which a counselor told my mom is the same thing as their bars. You are not suppose to eat cheese but my husband and I will sometimes eat string cheese as an afternoon snack. I probably could of lost more over these 5 weeks but I drink beer on the weekends. It is a simple plan to follow and it does work.
My stomach is flatter now than before I had my daughter in February. The 3 day prep is. You can also have as much Kraft Fat Free dressing as you want to go with your vegetables and to put on your meat as well. You are basically doing the Atkins diet during your prep phase.
Also make sure you drink plenty of water oz a day. You pee your fat out, that is why it is so important to drink water. I cannot afford the program. I have tried pretty much everything out there with no success. I visited with a slim4 life an program is way too expensive for me.
And also the 3 day prep diet. I would really appreciate it.
