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.

Happy New Year, Weighters! (Not sure how we feel about that name for listeners, hmm.)

Welcome new listeners and returning listeners! We loved getting back together after the new year and talking about how we spent our holiday and how we’re starting the year. 

If you’ve joined us or rejoined us after the new year and raring to go on your weight-loss goals. We give some tips that have helped us in the past with getting back on the wagon, and we also know that setting goals helps you achieve them!

We also talk about goals for 2020 from both ourselves and those in our group! We would also love to know your goals and you can still add to the 2020 Goals post in the Facebook group.

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 interact with us while we record by going to the Hate to Weight Discussion Group on Facebook. We record every Thursday at 11 a.m.!

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 and consultant from Connecticut. She has been doing Intermittent Fasting since April 2018 and has lost about 70 pounds. She started with 16:8 and is now doing 18:6.

In This Episode:

  • Weighters doesn’t work as a nickname all the time.
  • Emily started off the year with a stomach bug in the house and is asking for accountability.
  • “Your health is your first million dollars.”  — John (maybe?)
  • “You can’t to 10 until you do 1.” — John
  • How did you spend your New Years? (Probably not like Emily did — Space Jam!)
  • Welcome to everyone who found us recently! We hope you enjoy dropping in smack-dab in the midst of a year and a half into our weight loss!
  • Sugar sneaks itself into everything!
  • John’s goal is to cook more in 2020.
  • “Welcome to Hate to Cook, two lifelong take-outers ….”
  • Check out some of John’s on-the-fly recipes! Should we have a Dude Cooking Segment?
  • We also give some tips for those who are looking to get back on the health wagon train.
  • We’re both moving to the One Meal a Day lifestyle. That may be in both of our futures.
  • Always do your own research for whatever diet plan you want to try. We also know that not all doctors have the most up-to-date information about nutrition, so you are your best resource sometimes.
  • Since we don’t have Winning Wednesday posts this week, we talk about our listeners’ goals for 2020!
  • When it comes to being aware of your triggers, “Keep challenging yourself to ask ‘Why?’” — John
  • 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
