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.

Note: We are not doctors, nor do we play doctors on TV (or in this podcast). Please talk to a medical professional before taking any of our advice.

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 60 pounds. She started with 16:8 and is now doing 18:6.

In This Episode:

  • Last week was a HEAVY week, but the support we received was phenomenal! Thank you to everyone who reached out with support and encouragement. We really do read everything and it keeps us going!
  • John took a trip to the Emergency Room for his foot. Luckily everything seems to be OK for now.
  • But the annoyance of it meant he was able to avoid overeating!
  • In case you’re new to the show, Intermittent Fasting means only eating during a certain number of hours every day.
  • We’re reparenting ourselves and negotiating with ourselves, but it’s working!
  • At-Home-Emily hates to cook; Out-Shopping-Emily forgets this and buys vegetables that just go bad. Can you relate?
  • John has a great baked potato routine going!
  • Emily found frozen cauliflower pizza. The good news: it tastes just like a regular frozen pizza! The bad news: it takes just like a regular frozen pizza.
  • Have you tried cauliflower pizza?
  • Your mindset when you lose weight is very weird and is tricky for both of us.
  • Our bodies can do so much! But our brains take some time to catch up to the changes.
  • "The Mind, Explained" (not “The Brain, Explained,” as Emily says) is fantastic! The Anxiety episode is a great one to start one.
  • Are we just giving ourselves cheap exposure therapy by podcasting about our weight loss struggles?
  • Winning Wednesday! Wait, nope! Nevermind. Not yet.
  • What do you think? Should we have more guests? Let us know! Email hatetoweight@gmail.com
  • OK, for real this time: Winning Wednesday!
  • We are so ADHD this week.
  • Make good choices!
  • John, I’m so sorry shark week made me so demanding this week!
  • Emily gives you the Pinterest version of how to fix drawstrings.
  • Did we really complain about losing weight? Ugh!
  • AH-HA! It’s shark week! Now it all makes sense.
  • Later, Weighters!
