Thanks for the follow. I am following you back. I can't wait to hear about your weight loss journey. I am starting a blog about me trying to loose weight after my four kids. I love reading about others. I am also excited to see what other giveaways you will have on this blog.

Happy blogiversary!

My favorite post on your blog was for the pickle chips - it's so much cheaper to make your own, and they taste better, too! I'd love to see more posts like that. asthenight at gmail dot com

loni said...

I love how each of the stores and/categories are listed separate on the side...I do not have to weed through a bunch to go right where I want to

Stephen Saunders said...

Seriously I like the appearance. Even though it's simple (which is a GOOD thing), it's very unique. The colors and theme of this isn't really similar to anything else you see out there. You've got a pretty darn attractive blog.

And of course, the useful pearls of information rock also.

Thanks for the chance.

Congrats on the two year anniversary! I love the green background of your blog. It makes everything so easy to read. I think it is really hard to find a color background that isn't distracting, but you have that on your blog.

Call this a bit shallow, but I really like the look of your blog. It isn't too busy. There are some blogs that I cannot read because it is so visually overwhelming.

My favorite posts are the holiday posts. I took your suggestion and spent very little on christmas. I used my points and other rewards.

clynsg said...

I agree with the poster who mentioned the fact that your blog is one of the easier ones to read. The background color is easy on the eyes, and it is not horribly cluttered with a lot of extraneous material.

Valancia said...

I like your blog, the green colour is soothing and pleasing to the eye and you seem organized not like some blogs that have 'too' much on their page. Your blog looks clean and I think I'd like to see things about celebrities, like what they like to cook, what they do in spare time, how they live and shop, I think that would be interesting.

I think it is wonderful that someone is blogging and showing a good example of how to be a good steward of your finances. So many people today live beyond their means, and it will eventually catch up with them. People need to discover the art of being frugal, and managing money properly. I love your blog!

Your baking soda post was very helpful. Can't believe I'd never thought of it! Also, as others have said, I like the appearance of your blog - not all cluttered up with junk. Last, I think it's cool the way you write about your weight. Very fact oriented. You put yourself out there, but you're not dramatic. Refreshing.

I like how easy it is to read your blog - you don't have tons of tons of banners or icons, and none of those really annoying scrolly things. I get "car sick" trying to read posts at some blogs, to say nothing of how hard it is to concentrate on what you're reading when things are moving in your peripheral vision. And because you don't have them, your site loads quickly, which is nice, too.

Auriette said...

Wow. ::applause:: I just read the brief saga of your 75 pound weight loss and your posts sharing some of the details. After being diagnosed with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (that's liver disease without the fun of drinking), I have started seeing a weight loss counselor, and I lost six pounds the first month. I can't completely give up my soda, though I have cut way back. I need to exercise more, but now that the heat is debilitating (and we've had rain all this week), it's getting tougher. I enjoyed seeing your success story. It gives me hope!
