What better way for two podcasters to check in with each other on their weight loss adventures than by starting a podcast about it?

Join John (Brand X Podcast) and Emily (The Story Behind) as they try their hardest to shed those pesky pounds and check in with each other every week.

Meet Your Hosts:

  • John Bukenas is a podcast editor from New Jersey. He started the podcast doing keto and intermittent fasting, but is now gearing up for bariatric surgery (probably) later this summer.
  • Emily Prokop is a podcast editor from Connecticut. She has been doing Intermittent Fasting since April 2018 and has lost more than 50 pounds.

In This Episode:

  • Do you sing and dance along to our theme music?
  • Emily has some heavy stuff to talk about. If you’re not in the mood for a downer, skip ahead to John (at about 18:55)
  • Emily gets some heavy news about her family and it’s a big eating trigger.
  • Is it so much to ask that people wait to give us bad news when we’re in our eating windows?
  • Sorry dog people, Emily is not a fan of the yip-yips.
  • Emily realizes she doesn’t have any of her old coping mechanisms she used to use — overeating, smoking, and drinking.
  • Emily is reading a new book about learning to be mindful of emotions and how they affect you.
  • Emotions can make us feel heavier than the scale lets on.
  • John absolutely lightens the mood! And to think he wasn’t going to talk about this!
  • John was so close to a new second number, but then … oh, I’m not going to spoil it here.
  • OK, a little spoiler: John buys things in his sleep, LOL!
  • I’m still laughing while writing these show notes!  
  • Microphones = Truth Serum
  • Our weeks have been off-the-wall, too!
  • John realized that overeating wasn’t worth it.
  • One of our members, Theresa Crout is an AMAZING artist! Check her out — links below!
  • Did you eat Play-Doh as a kid too?
  • Later, Weighters!

We’d love to hear your scale and non-scale victories! Come celebrate your wins over in the Hate to Weight Discussion Group on Facebook
