Britt.Strut ,

Definitely has helped me on my bariatric journey!

I am still in my journey to get released by my bariatric dietitian (my next appt, she will approve me to meet with the surgeon) but up until this point, I was fine until she said that. I became emotional & the fear began to set in. I decided to make an appointment with my bariatric psychologist and she recommended this podcast. I have completely dove in, listening while at work and I realized I am not alone. This podcast has helped so much with what I’ve been feeling, making me excited again. Although fear of surgery is still there, I know I am ready for this lifelong change. I’m so grateful for Allyson & Courtney and them sharing their journey & bringing others on to share their experience.

Thank you!

I started listening a month ago when I began considering WLS and binged all the episodes. Not only am I grateful for all the personal experiences shared by the hosts, but also the self-compassion and joy demonstrated by Cortni and Allison. I know the pacing of the show has slowed down (understandably- life circumstances) but I hope they continue forever! Thanks again for making this podcast- it’s truly a lifeline.

Angelina Solo ,

Perfect podcast

I just LOVE this podcast and am so glad to have found you ladies. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your personal experiences with us, strangers. I go through all the emotions each episode- both happy and sad tears. Cortni, when you laugh I instantly laugh, it’s so contagious. Allyson, you are amazing and have gone through SO much for your age :/. Thank you to the husbands for being the sound and editing. Binging now!
