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.

Heads up: This episode was recorded on March 19th, so keep that in mind if we’re behind on the current events when you listen to this.

We were all this together when we were dieting, and now we’re all in this together when it comes to staying home and stopping the spread of COVID-19.

This week, we’re starting to get used to our new life of quarantining ourselves and keeping ourselves separated from others. There’s a little bit of stress eating popping up in our lives, as well, but we try to keep the mood up in this episode!

New to Hate to Weight? Make sure you’re subscribed so you’ll never miss an episode and so you can listen to all the back episodes!

Don’t forget, you can talk to us and other Weighters while we record by going to the Hate to Weight Discussion Group on Facebook. We record every Thursday at 11 a.m.!

In This Episode:

  • We’re finding out just how much we rely on our normal way of getting food and now we’re adjusting.
  • We’re finally cooking at home! And it sucks as much as we knew it would.
  • John goes through his grocery routine now and how he sanitizes what comes into his house.
  • Why is it so hard not to touch our faces?!
  • As if we didn’t have trouble planning our meals before, we are trying to survive a crash course in it now!
  • Emily has a bidet attachment and it’s amazing right now! It saves on toilet paper!
  • Would you buy a Used Bidet? Um, no!
  • Are you still enjoying the quarantine memes? We are!
  • Emily has started streaming her work on Twitch (in fact, she’s streaming right now while writing notes!)
  • Have you found you need more breaks from your phone lately?
  • John refused to go to the doctor’s office and is really taking this seriously! Good for him!
  • Years ago, both of us would have eaten all the crap and been fine. But NO! We wanted to get healthy.
  • Emily has been working on lowering her expectations of other people, as well as herself right now.
  • We’re all in this together (but #HateToWeightDidItFirst).
  • Congratulations to everyone for their #WinningWednesday posts!
