    I still remember how upset I was to read that Abbie had passed away. She was such a great dog! I remember you got some backlash for getting a puppy so soon after, but I think we can all agree it was a good choice πŸ™‚

    I didn’t start reading healthy living blogs until I saw that awful Marie Claire story. Reading it, even without any blogging background, I could see the obvious bias and suspected that you were all being horribly misrepresented. I started reading the blogs mentioned and found that my suspicions were correct. I now read you and many others regularly and find great inspiration in my journey to stay healthy!

    How fun! What a background and story you’ve had. You should be proud of yourself!!

    Congrats on nailing some really good topics right on the head πŸ˜‰

    These are great choices, Meghann. I’ve been a reader for over a year now and I think you really showcased fabulous posts. Abbie was adorable…as is Maddie! <3

    I remember Abbie! I was so sad the day that I woke up and read what had happened to her. You’re so lucky to have gotten another adorable JRT to begin to fill up your heart where Abbie is missed!

    Meghann…I remember hearing about that controversial Marie Claire article last year but it was before I was into reading these kinds of blogs. So, I just went back and read it right now. How infuriating! I read your response post as well and wow — I can’t imagine how I would have felt now knowing this community so well. I would just say…my unhealthy attitudes about eating have IMPROVED a lot since I came across this community. If nothing else, you guys celebrate food as something good to fuel your body with! It has really helped me. I guess it’s a little too late for me to respond to Marie Claire NOW but wow — that writer was SO off base and clearly carved out her angle before she spoke with any of you. Anyway…hope to see you at the Healthy Living Summit πŸ™‚

    I agree with you about volunteering at races. Volunteering at the Cleveland Marathon this year was a BLAST. So happy I gave out medals that cold, rainy morning!

    I actually really loved your marathon volunteering post, and think of it often–it just pops into my head. I bet it had a larger impact than you realized.

    Wow! I just started reading your blog about a week ago and this post officially has me hooked! You are extremely inspiring. I am a 20 year old not necessarily looking to lose weight, more so to maintain my healthy lifestyle. Blogs like yours and many others give me great new food and exercise ideas which motivation to continue with this way of living! Keep up the awesome work, you have yourself a new faithful follower!

    I loved catching up on all these important posts of yours that I hadn’t seen! Now I do, however, feel like a creepy stalker! eek!

    The most beautiful post made me tear up.
    The Marie Claire article is actually what made me aware of the healthy living blog world and started my readership. I am sure many others have been reached that way as well. So while the article was CRAP it did serve a purpose πŸ™‚

    I loved your “scales lie” post! It really showed me that I’m not the only one struggling with issues on the scale– mental AND physical

    Your Abbie post makes me cry just thinking about it (I’ve read it once a while back and that’s all I can handle). Dogs nuzzle their way into such a special part of our hearts!

    As a new reader, I didn’t think much of the Foodbuzz ads on your posts or the blog posts about what free items you received in the mail. But after reading the Marie Claire article of how much you make, I will no longer be reading.

    Other people may have no problem supporting your “fun money” as you put it, but I am choosing to politely decline. You have definitely lost a reader here.

      I’m sorry you feel that way Shell. It would probably be wise to tell you that this past January I decided to pursue blogging and freelancing fulltime. My ‘fun money’ is now the money I use to pay the bills. I know I’ve been incredibly lucky here, but blogging three posts a week is full time work and I’m thankful for all the success that has come my way.

    What’s wrong with people making money doing what they love? I would totally do this if I could! Meghann has a market of readers and it’s a lot of work to keep up a blog and do the Healthy Living Summit, etc. It’s how the world works! Don’t you know that advertisements are what keeps MANY publications alive and well? I used to work for a book publisher and I got free books all the time! Besides that, no one could live off the amount she’s making, give me a break! I’ guess I’m just saying — more power to you Meghann, your blog and your work is awesome πŸ™‚

    I actually found your blog through the Marie Claire article- and after looking at your guys’ sites I decided that MC was in the wrong and actually ended be subscription. I was so appalled at the slant they chose just to make the story seem scandalous. Now I read more blogs than magazines!

    I loved your “New Chapter” post, and in general, your decision to make a big change in your life, quit your job and move, and pursue your bliss! It’s such a difficult thing to do, to take the risk, leave everything that’s familiar and safe, and make the leap…but all too many people are afraid to make the change (although they should, and although they would be so much happier). So kudos to you!

    I don’t get a natural period either. And my ob gyn recommended an ultrasound to check for polycystic ovarian syndrome, it turns out that is what I have. Her answer was to get back on birth control too. I begged her not to make me, but she said the risk is ovarian/uterine cancer. So I’m on nuvaring and having regular periods.. Has your doc mentioned an u/s?
