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:

  • Emily Prokop is a podcast editor from Connecticut. She has been doing Intermittent Fasting since April 2018 and has lost more than 50 pounds.
  • 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.

John’s special lady friend has come to visit and he’s been having a great week! With her staying with him, they’ve been having fun eating together and cooking together! What do you do for your diet while on vacation/staycation?

Our friend Lisa was going for surgery the day we recorded. Her surgery was a success and we are wishing Lisa a speedy recovery!

Don’t have a notepad ready for John’s Frittata Recipe? Here it is!

  • Saute the peppers, onions, and mushrooms until tender.
  • Remove veggies and keep warm
  • Combine 12 eggs plus about a ¼ cup of half-and-half and fry in oven-safe frying pan for a bit until the bottom develops a skin.
  • Add veggies and some cheese
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for about 15 minutes
  • Add more cheese on top and bake for another 5 minutes

John is gearing up for bariatric surgery by seeing a therapist and he was shocked that 95 percent of people with eating disorders fail after bariatric surgery because they haven’t gotten the overeating under control. His date has been pushed off again so he can get some help getting his emotional eating under control.

“I’m starting to see the big picture. It’s almost like I’m backing up and I’m looking at this whole situation from over-top and afar and I’m seeing more than I’ve ever been able to see before.”  — This week’s John-spiration!

Emily decided to measure herself for the first time in a while — she’s lost 10 pounds since the last time she weighed herself. If you haven’t started measuring yourself yet, definitely try it, but not so often. Check back every few weeks and compare. Even if the scale doesn’t move much, you’ll be surprised at how your body changes when you’re dieting and exercising.

Emily is also in a groove with Intermittent Fasting, but that’s because it works really well with her lifestyle. The fasting hours can be rigid for some, especially if you like your coffee with cream and/or sugar. But for Emily, since she didn’t have to think about eating anything for 16 hours, it works really well.

And, in case anyone is curious, the Burger King tacos are not as good as Taco Bell tacos. John has done the hard work so you don’t have to!

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

WE’VE LOST MORE THAN 100 POUNDS SINCE STARTING THE SHOW!

 

This was an amazing weigh-in and we worked so hard for this. When we started the podcast, this seemed like a very lofty goal. Emily loses it (and Emily got misty-eyed even writing these notes). 103 POUNDS TOTAL! WOW
