Episode 29 – Weight Loss Rumspringa

There is a popular belief, that We Only LOOK Thin will do nothing to dispel, that when Amish children reach a certain age, they have a rite of passage called “Rumspringa”. The children live separately from the Amish community for a time to experience technology and to sow their wild oats (do people still say that? How old is the person writing this?). In this episode, Catherine and Donald talk about the fact that during a weight loss adventure, people often want to take a Rumspringa. How you deal with these urges and how you move on from a Rumspringa is an important part of achieving your goal. How do you self-identify? Also, they introduce you to the new Tums bracelet and the equally new, box of powdered Doritos.
