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.

TRIGGER WARNING: John talks about having dreams of suicide (around 37 minutes in). We appreciate everyone who has already reached out and we appreciate your concern. John has never had these kinds of thoughts in waking life before so we want you to know there is no concern. But your kindness is always so appreciated.

In This Episode:

  • Emily watched Brittany Runs a Marathon  — a fantastic movie for us! If you haven’t checked it out, it’s amazing! Available on Amazon Prime.
  • It’s weird watching these movies with people who haven’t ever had weight problems. We also know those friends who say things like, “I can’t do cardio! I lose too much weight too quickly!”
  • One thing about changing yourself is feeling like our friends want to keep us in their little compartments in their minds and in real life.
  • Sam, John’s girlfriend, is coming into town! Yay! And the Super Bowl is coming up, so let’s talk about that food!
  • Emily’s favorite cupcake place has a Buffalo Chicken Cupcake! Would you try it?
  • Are you ready for the best way to eat a cupcake? Cupcake Sandwich!
  • There’s a new “Biggest Loser!” and we get to hear John’s real thoughts on Jillian Michaels.
  • John Judge-mingo might be another alias for John, lol.
  • If someone can’t find you attractive how you are, they are not the person for you. — Great advice from John.
  • Emily mothers John and tells him he doesn’t have time. You’re welcome, future John!
  • Big shout-out to Wellness While Walking by Coach Carolyn. I loved the tip from the podcast about adding more vegetables and LOVES Everything But the Bagel Seasoning on them! Wow!
  • John gives some Dude Cooking lessons from his InstantPot. But, boy, do we have issues with making eggs sometimes. Emily last time, this time John!
  • Emily has an Ask a Skinny Person moment because she’s not used to having her butt hurt from sitting on a bony/less-fatty butt.
  • Emily has started doing affirmations out loud and they really do make a difference.
  • John makes an appointment to see a neurologist for his concussions from years ago.
  • TRIGGER WARNING: John talks about suicidal dreams around the 37:14 mark.
  • We started a Daily Accountability Challenge! Did you join?
  • So many wins for #WinningWednesday!
  • Emily proves she doesn’t know sports — umps in football!
  • Check out Theresa’s art in our group!
  • “She wants to D — Donuts!”
  • Emily’s old walking shoes are too big and they are flattened from when she was heavier.
  • Check toward the end of the episode to see if we gained or lost weight this week.
  • 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
