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 started the show and John was in a full-fledged panic attack. There’s a lot to unpack in this episode and talk through, including “fit-splaining” and a quiz all about BBQ food!

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.

In This Episode:

  • John is in a full-fledged panic attack. John has to go to the doctor’s for the first time since before we all hunkered down into quarantine.
  • John’s new podcast is Out and he now has an outlet for No-Filter John -- beware ;)
  • Want an editor for your podcast? John may be available! Check out Audio Editing Solutions
  • Pop-Ups at Taco Bell — good idea or bad idea?
  • John might look into virtual therapy. Wouldn’t it be great if he got to use his soundboard? Or, even better, if the therapist had a soundboard!
  • Emily is rushing to get her youngest potty trained and, spoiler alert, it will take a while.
  • Have you heard of “Fit-splaining”? Once you know what it is, has it happened to you?
  • Emily brings the Big Fun with a barbecue quiz!
  • Fat’s Not Bad!
  • Sorry all! I couldn’t find the blog post I mentioned with the “fit-splainer!”--Emily
  • Awesome #WinningWednesday posts this week!
  • Later, Weighters!
