Episode 13 - Who are you calling fat? The Skinny Yet review
Karen and Jo have been ruminating on the BBC documentary "Who Are You Calling Fat?" and there's a lot to unpack. We give our opinions on the subjects raised, a lot of them we have been banging on about for months, and Karen might be signing up for an E-course in the future... or maybe not. We also talk about the C-word a lot, oh and Christmas too. You can email us your reviews of Who Are You Calling Fat too, let us know if you agree or disagree at firstname.lastname@example.org or find us on instagram @skinnyyetblog

Episode 12 - Anyone can fit in our fun box
Skinny Yet return to talk about finding a place to fit in within the tribes on social media and just how many cookies are too many in one sitting? We kick off season two with many a line drawn under things, such as binges, Instagram and politics. Everyone is welcome to join us in our new club no matter if you are big, small, fat or thin as long as you are nice and just eat biscuits from the packet like a normal person.

Episode 11- Diet shame or fat shame, we can't bloody win
This episode we discuss Weight watchers' new diet app for kids, fat shaming bullies and how some people are just unwilling accept that Slimming World works for some people. We talk about our successful losses and successful chocolate brownie experiences, and could Skinny Yet be embracing positivity? The rants may suggest otherwise.

Episode 10 - Ignoring the Buerks and seeking a positive body image
This week Karen isn't impressed with requests for her to stop losing weight and Jo investigates body positivity in an era where fat shaming is so mainstream, a (once) respected journalist can casually advocate a death sentence for fat people in need of help. And maybe Jo can embrace her curves when she finds out where all the influencers get their plus size clothes from.

Episode 9- Skinny Yet support group for the Slimming World challenged
This episode we discuss Karen's progress with Slimming World and Jo's departure from it. Jo has drawn the line on SW and jumped ship to plain old calorie counting, but the temptation for 1200 calories worth of KitKats is always lingering. We also give our opinion on Pinch of Nom vs Slimming World and have we invented a new weight loss support group?

Ep.8 - We are Skinny Yet and we are addicted to sugar... send help
In this episode we talk about Big Body Squad (channel 5) a fatsploitation tv show that makes us uncomfortable for many different reasons. We also discuss sugar addiction and whether it is taken seriously enough by doctors and the media. Would plain packaging stop us from buying that Double Decker? No.. the answer is no.

Episode 6 - Ditch the diet, join a cult, eat Easter cookies until you’re thin

46 minutes | Jun 13, 2019
episode 5 - The slimming conspiracy theorist

Episode 4 - De-motivational quotes and Karen needs answers
This is a long podcast so make a cup of tea and gather appropriate snacks for your syn allowance/state of mind. In this podcast we catch up on two weeks worth of what has been bothering us most about dieting, and we soon realise we are not the ones with all the answers, but wouldn't mind talking to someone who has it all figured out.
48 minutes | Jun 13, 2019
Episode 3 - Never Lie About Desserts
We talk about falling off the diet wagon into a pan full of brownies, why Instagram lies to us about dessert and the fateful return to Slimming World. There's some strong language, but showing unobtainable biscuits to us on social media will encourage swearing.

Episode 2 - A new journey begins?
Karen and Jo discuss how Jo needs to get off her fat arse and restart Slimming World. Is another journey about to begin?

Ep.1 Introducing Skinny Yet
Introducing Skinny Yet? We are two friends, sharing our opinions and experiences during the never ending journey of our weight-losses and gains. We are typical women with a PhD in sarcasm, though it's often aimed at our own insecurities. In our first podcast we introduce ourselves and try get to the heart of why we are desperately trying to complete our "journey" and ask ourselves "are we skinny yet?".
