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.

Watch the LIVE Recording:

Are we in a “New Normal” yet? For us, we both work at home so the dust is beginning to settle, but there are still a lot of changes we haven’t anticipated. John has started a new organizational program and Emily has been adding more veggies to her meals and trying to be more mindful about why she finds herself in the kitchen.

We talk a lot about our current situations, which as you may know if you’re listening to this around the time it comes out, is the COVID-19 social distancing stuff. It’s important to mention, as we do every episode, we are not doctors. Please refer to the CDC website guidelines for information or any questions you may have.

In This Episode:

  • Are we coming out of this yet? (Not for us. We’re both staying in as much as possible.)
  • Are you already sick of “New Normal” usage? For us, the dust is starting to settle for us.
  • John has begun an organizational program by Carl Pullein (see links below!)
  • John and Emily both have ADHD and are always learning how to navigate with it, which has been a part of our weight problems, as well.
  • We apologize for the delay in episodes lately. We are fixing it as fast as we can and we thank you so much for your patience with us.
  • There are so many things in our lives that we are trying to optimize to help us become more productive with our time. For some people, productivity can bog them down. But for us, we really appreciate routines and systems.
  • John gives his breakfast frittata recipe! Check it out!
  • Emily loves the idea of being proactive before being reactive.
  • “Everybody has a routine and until your routine becomes a habit, you gotta keep working at it.” — This week’s John-spiration!
  • Sometimes, we just want a Food Hug.
  • “What kind of comfort am I looking for?” — Emily when she finds herself in the kitchen.
  • John will hopefully give us more Geese Updates!
  • Emily has decided this week to add more veggies to her diet this week and getting more mindful with her eating, as well.
  • One routine that’s probably NOT good for us is our cereal-eating routine.
  • We get into a discussion about masks. We’re pro-mask, by the way.
  • Emily’s declarations: No tomatoes as a default and please stay 6 feet away!
  • Woo-hoo for the #WinningWednesday posts!
  • What do you think about a plank challenge? Let us know in the Hate to Weight Discussion Group on Facebook! Have you joined yet? →
  • 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
