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.

This week is a little different from our other episodes. John couldn’t make it this week so I did a solo episode talking about how I got started with Intermittent Fasting and lost about 70 pounds in 18 months.

We joke sometimes, but dieting really is such a lifestyle change, but it doesn’t always have to be a punishment for doing something wrong. I really encourage anyone currently on a weight-loss journey of their own to keep getting back on the wagon, keep trying new things, keep pushing toward your goals.

John and I are so encouraged by all of you and your support and we hope we’ve also been able to be supportive to you.
