Dieting on Vacation, Running Amok and Couch Jeans from the Universe

2/24/2020
What happens when you go on vacation while doing Intermittent Fasting? Well, Emily found out on her big family vacation! In fact, it’s a whirlwind of a story, which includes Emily’s actual ideal vacation of driving for hours in nature, calling on her “boot and rally” days from college to get her through taking too many vitamins on an empty stomach, and Couch Jeans from the Universe. Wow. Are these show notes or the back of a family comedy from the ‘80s VHS? Meanwhile, while Emily was...

Dieting Through Hell Week + Accountability Challenge Success!

2/10/2020
Emily’s getting ready for a family vacation, on top of crazy work stuff, on top of the current events —it’s a recipe for the perfect storm in Emily’s world and there’s even a funny story about what happens when you throw a rock in the woods, craving mall pretzels, and prom dresses! OK, I’m building up this story a lot, but I promise this episode will be an interesting side of Emily in Panic Mode. In better news, John’s special lady friend is visiting and he is having a ball, but making sure...

Want Accountability? We're Challenging You!

2/3/2020
Hey everyone, Emily here all up in your show notes (I promise I'll never write that again). Anyway, I'm crazy behind this week with my own work stuff so the show notes will be coming later. But I wanted to get this episode out because right now in the Hate to Weight Discussion Group on Facebook, we have an Accountability Challenge going on! We set our goals Sunday and there are daily check-in posts — don't worry, you can always hop in mid-challenge. Head on over the Hate to Weight...

Dieting Changes versus Lifestyle Changes

1/27/2020
We had a great discussion in our Facebook group thinking about the lifestyle changes we make to lose weight versus what we are planning on doing once we hit our goal weight and need to maintain. John also had a bout with food poisoning and Emily has shifted her whole schedule to mornings so we're both a little out of our comfort zone. New to Hate to Weight?

Planning our "Lifing" Toolkit

1/20/2020
We both have planning on the brain this week and talk about Proactive Mode vs. Reactive Mode when it comes to our diets, businesses, and life. John has already had a morning! And he even has a realization halfway through the episode and remembers to breathe. He also wants to create a #Lifing Toolbox. Emily changes her schedule and has some adjusting to do. This may or may not be affecting her weight. We’ll see! We also talk a lot about the importance of planning, including how we plan....

Emotional Eating Triggers and Schedule Changes

1/13/2020
Welcome to our new listeners and our new members in the Hate to Weight Discussion Group on Facebook! We’ve seen a few new faces in the group and we’re always excited when you can join us for the live show. No matter where we are in our weight-loss journey, it seems we are constantly testing and adjusting. John’s schedule plus the diuretic he’s supposed to take wreaks havoc on his eating window with Intermittent Fasting. And Emily had a day of Emotional Triggers that would have sent her into...

Happy New Year! We Hate to Cook.

1/6/2020
Happy New Year, Weighters! (Not sure how we feel about that name for listeners, hmm.) Welcome new listeners and returning listeners! We loved getting back together after the new year and talking about how we spent our holiday and how we’re starting the year. If you’ve joined us or rejoined us after the new year and raring to go on your weight-loss goals. We give some tips that have helped us in the past with getting back on the wagon, and we also know that setting goals helps you achieve...

Holiday Recap

12/30/2019
We jump right into today’s show and even had to backtrack to record an intro! But don’t worry, John is a great editor and somehow kept our ADHD a little more understandable in the final edit. We’re back from our holiday break and we are feeling the effects, for sure. A lot has happened and whenever John and Emily skip a week of chatting, there’s usually tangents galore, as with this episode. We thank all our listeners who have been with us this year and we hope to continue our success in...

If You Fail to Prepare, You Prepare to Fail

12/16/2019
We’re getting back into the swing of things in this episode. John has a good week, aside from a late-night craving. Emily stops focusing on the scale and instead focuses on the benefits of Intermittent Fasting. We’re asking for a lot of feedback for this episode! We want your rants, your wins, and your goals for 2020! “Fail to prepare, prepare to fail!” - Thanks to Annette in the chat for reminding us! New to Hate to Weight?

Finding Control and HappyLights!

12/9/2019
John had a night where he ordered pizza and wings and is trying to find some of what Janet Jackson sings about, Control! Emily has a list of fun new ideas she’s tried the past week to get happy, get cooking, and get warm. We really go off on some tangents this week, but John has decided to bring more energy to the show, and Emily tries to remember her pun skills. Get ready because this episode is a little off the walls! New to Hate to Weight? Make sure you’re subscribed so you’ll never...

Staying Accountable to Your Diet During the Holidays

12/2/2019
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...

Mindfulness and Learning to Sit with our Feelings (is hard!)

11/25/2019
A big thank you to everyone who nominated and voted for Hate to Weight in the Discover Pods awards. We didn’t win, but we are thrilled to have been nominated! John has been learning to sit with his feelings, at the urging of his therapist who he has been seeing to get ready for bariatric surgery. And we’re finding out that sitting with our feelings and trying not to go into the fight-or-flight response is much harder than just trying to fight them. But it’s necessary for true weight-loss...

Emily has discovered Wafflefulls and has had an inhuman number of them in the last few weeks. “It's one meal at a time. Make good choices and if you...

Getting Started with Intermittent Fasting with Emily: Solo Episode

11/11/2019
VOTE FOR HATE TO WEIGHT FOR THE 2019 DISCOVER PODS AWARDS HERE! This week is a little different from our other episodes. John couldn’t make it this week so I did a solo episode talking about how I got started with Intermittent Fasting and lost about 70 pounds in 18 months. We joke sometimes, but dieting really is such a lifestyle change, but it doesn’t always have to be a punishment for doing something wrong. I really encourage anyone currently on a weight-loss journey of their own to keep...

Come On, Get Happy!

11/4/2019
Both John and Emily are in pissy moods and can’t figure out why, until they both realize that the antibiotics they’ve been taking may have something to do with it.
