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 couldn’t get on Facebook for the Live Show, bu we still recorded. We actually recorded on Thanksgiving, before the feast, which worked out well for the weigh-in.

John has some big news for us  —he has been cleared by his therapist for weight-loss surgery! Yay! He also gives us a quick Dude Cooking recipe for vegetable soup and we talk about getting more vegetables in, even though it’s been too cold (for Emily) for a salad lately.

From John and Emily, we hope you have a wonderful holiday season and we hope you extend grace to yourself. It’s a very eating-centric time of year and people tend to beat themselves up the most. We want to help keep you accountable to yourself and your health and we are so grateful you’ve joined us for this podcast!

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:

  • We couldn’t get on Facebook for the live show because Facebook and Instagram were down. Sorry! (I couldn’t even upload our video. That kept crashing, too! Sorry! — Emily)
  • What are you thankful for? Also, Emily was not prepared for this question and went right to food.
  • John is grateful for his therapist and has some big news!
  • Big congratulations to John, his mental health has been cleared to get the bariatric surgery! Now it’s just a matter of hitting a goal weight.
  • What is with our kids trying to kill us?!
  • Emily ate more vegetables this week, even though it’s been too cold for salads.
  • Dude Cooking vegetable soup recipe: three bags of frozen vegetables in a crock pot with chicken broth.
  • Do you like playing with food in your teeth?
  • We referred back to Harriet Morris, Emily’s eating coach and her games to avoid binge-eating.
  • Are you an Aldi fan? They have a lot of gluten-free stuff!
  • John is comparing the benefits of Intermittent Fasting vs. Keto.
  • It’s awesome that food manufacturers add more information to the package to help us make easier decisions. But the more we find out about nutrition and food information, the more informed we can be about what we put in our bodies.
  • The memes in our Facebook group are awesome! We love when you post them because they always make us laugh!
  • John plans the next few weeks of weight loss.
  • Have you heard of sous vide cooking? Emily’s husband loves doing it and he’s testing it out on the Thanksgiving turkey.
  • Sorry we couldn’t do our Winning Wednesdays this week because we couldn’t get on Facebook!
  • Just remember, one day of eating will not ruin all your weight-loss.
  • Emily found herself in Two-terville (where the first number on the scale is a 2) but, phew! She goes back to One-derland.
  • Reverb — great for singers, horrible for podcast editors.
  • Did you know Emily can play guitar and juggle?
  • We get into a bit of banter about The Beatles
  • Thanks to our friend Dave Jackson for giving us a shout-out!
  • “Comparison is the thief of joy.”  —Theodore Roosevelt
  • Sorry I couldn’t get the video up in our group! It was too big and would not load :(
  • Don’t forget to give yourself some grace!
  • 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
