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.

Welcome to episode 100! And the first of many episodes that include Big Fun. Don’t know what Big Fun is? Tune in. It’s pretty much exactly like it sounds.

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.
