    On this episode, this week’s guest is Kyleigh (@kyleighloosesit).
    I’ve talked with Kyleigh a few times in DMs before this conversation but something about her always impressed me. She’s worked hard on her weight loss journey and she’s also not afraid of lifting heavy weights in the gym. I was excited to talk to her and figure out what makes her tick. I’m excited for what she has planned in the future and I’m happy to call her a friend!

    Episode 48: Jamie (@coachjdhill)

    Episode 48: Jamie (@coachjdhill)

    On this episode, this week’s guest is Jamie (@coachjdhill).

    I've known Jamie for several years and we've ran through a lot of the same Internet community circles. Jamie has been on this weight loss journey for several years and is now in the process of having weight loss surgery.

    This episode is a little different than most. In the episode, I'm talking to Jamie not about just his weight loss efforts thus far but the process of having upcoming weight loss surgery in February. What made him decide to finally pursue the surgery, how he feels about it overall, his process to prepare for the surgery and what he expects from the end result of the surgery.

    This is part one of a forthcoming second conversation that will take place after Jamie is healed from the weight loss surgery. If you've ever thought of having surgery done for weight loss, listen to Jamie's thought process and hopefully his story can help you with your process as well.

    On this episode, this week’s guest is Katelynn (@agirlnamedk_).

    Katelynn came highly recommended through previous guest Kaela (@mckenna__fitness). Katelynn and Kaela have been workout partners for several months now and Katelynn's weight loss journey started in October of 2019. I wanted to know more about Katelynn's background, why she decided to lose weight once and for all, and what drives her to be better.

    This podcast is only a small portion of a total 3 hour conversation that we had that same night. Katelynn is an inspiration and I hope she inspires you as well. I'm happy to call her a great friend. Please enjoy my conversation with Katelynn.

    Episode 46: Dan (@bigfatlifepodcast)

    On this episode, this week’s guest is Dan (@bigfatlifepodcast).

    Dan is a podcaster for the show, Big Fat Life Podcast. Dan and his podcast gained a lot of traction in the second half of 2019 and I started hearing about this podcast called "Big Fat Life". I had know clue who Dan was but his name and his podcast kept getting mentioned in several stories of other people that I follow on Instagram. I listened to it and I was really intrigued by how polished the show was. His interview style was to the point and he was a professional at getting people to share their stories of weight loss.

    After hearing several episodes, I reached out to him to find out his story and just a little more about him. After the conversation, I found that we had a lot more in common than I realized and the conversation was awesome. I hope you guys enjoy my conversation with Dan.
