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

We're dealing with A LOT this week, both in the world and in our own lives. Warning for those sensitive to the news and mental health, we talk about the shootings that happened recently, as well as anxiety attacks and the scary places our mind travels in those.

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:

  • Trigger Warning: We talk about some current events in this week’s episode from the get-go. Our hearts go out to the family and friends of those affected by the recent shootings in Texas and Ohio.
  • The reason we talk about this on a show supposedly about weight loss is because it affected both of our stress levels, which affect our eating and dieting habits.
  • John lost his car keys and was “stranded” in his house for three days! That’s one way to avoid the drive-thru!
  • Our ADD/ADHD is also on overdrive lately.
  • John had a good time out to eat with his daughter and had a little slip off the diet, but he is aware of it and is growing so much since last year!
  • Do you have guilt over taking some time for exercise or self-care?
  • Mom Guilt is real!
  • This is your reminder to go do something just for YOU!
  • Emily’s dealing with post-travel anxiety and depression.
  • Oh! And also Shark Week!
  • Did you know ADHD is girls and women is harder to spot? Females are more likely to internalize it.
  • Don’t forget to be aware of your social energy!
  • Thank goodness for routines and checklists.
  • “The fluctuations are just too stupid” - LOL!!!
  • Congratulations to everyone who posted their wins this week!
  • Did you like how John did the outro bloopers?
  • Later, Weighters!
