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.

We are back from a little bit of a break with this episode. For those anxiously awaiting new episodes, we are very behind in our release schedule, which you’ll hear more about in the coming weeks was because of some health setbacks on both Emily’s and John’s sides. As always, we want to thank you so much for your patience!

We talk a lot about fruit in this episode, including a Big Fun Fruit Quiz! And our live chat gets to participate so check us out Thursday mornings! :) 

A heads up, this was recorded a few weeks before this was released and you may hear some older news stories we talk about. We apologize for the delay in getting these episodes to you and we thank you so much for your patience. Remember, we record these episodes LIVE on Thursdays in our Facebook book.
