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 and Emily each week as they share their successes and struggles with weight loss.

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:

  • We were incredibly ADHD last week. Did you notice?
  • John’s been having a hard time with lymphedema and needs to do a 30-day diabetes test.
  • Emily’s only point of reference for diabetes is gestational diabetes tests. YUCK!
  • Sometimes you have to be your own advocate.
  • If you’re trying to do ALL THE THINGS, you’re going to burn yourself out.
  • Have you heard of Chaffles? Keto-friendly waffles made with cheese and eggs (or other variations).
  • We have John’s keto resources over at
  • Taco Bell! How dare you get rid of our favorite foods!
  • Don’t let yourself struggle! Ask for help.
  • Did we talk about The Big E? If you’re in New England, you may have heard of this huge state fair with amazing food!
  • All that food, and still the weight goes down. Thanks, Intermittent Fasting.
  • John’s birthday is the day this comes out! If you’re reading these, please wish him a very happy birthday in the Hate to Weight Discussion Group!
  • Do you think sugar is more addictive than other substances?
  • What are you done with? We are allowed to tell ourselves that we are done with something for the rest of our lives, and it can be very freeing.
  • Emily got a haircut and finally gets a haircut she enjoys!
  • The baggy look isn’t really working for Emily. But what a nice problem to have — losing weight and needing to buy new clothes.
  • There’s still a moment where Emily has to remind herself she needs a smaller size.
  • Congratulations to all our Wednesday Winners!
  • Clearly, Emily doesn't remember when Memorial Day is (lol).
  • Emily found she couldn’t deal with caffeine very easily.
  • We’ll be skipping next week’s show because Emily will be in Atlanta for She Podcasts Live.
  • Emily MIGHT BE in One-derland by the next time she records this podcast!
  • Later, Weighters!
