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.

Emily’s getting ready for a family vacation, on top of crazy work stuff, on top of the current events  —it’s a recipe for the perfect storm in Emily’s world and there’s even a funny story about what happens when you throw a rock in the woods, craving mall pretzels, and prom dresses! OK, I’m building up this story a lot, but I promise this episode will be an interesting side of Emily in Panic Mode.

In better news, John’s special lady friend is visiting and he is having a ball, but making sure to weigh the options of good, better or best choices.
