We learn how all about the hottest inspirational weight loss cd sweeping the country SkinnySongs with creator Heidi Roizen. Heidi came into the Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy studio right from a recent appearracne on Martha Stewart's TV show, Oprah and Friends and an artickle in USA Today. She shared her amazing story about the origens of SkinnySongs and gave some juicy behind the music stories.
What do great music and losing weight have in common? According to one of Silicon Valley’s bestknown venture capitalists and entrepreneurs, Heidi Roizen… just about everything. “In May I hit my all time high weight,? Heidi begins, “so I decided to commit myself to losing it for good this time. I wanted to find music that would keep me motivated about getting in shape and sticking to my diet. While I normally exercise to music by artists like Pink and Carrie Underwood, and their music is great, their lyrics didn’t speak to me about what I was trying to do. I figured, there is great, empowering music about all sorts of topics, there must be for this too. But, I searched for it, and just couldn’t find any.?
That is when Heidi decided to create her own hip music. She wrote the kind of lyrics she herself wanted to hear – stories about making a commitment, sticking to a plan, and getting into that skinny pair of jeans in the back of the closet. She then collaborated with accomplished music producers David Malloy (who has forty Number One Awards to his name) and George Daly (whose career has included senior roles at Columbia and Atlantic Records), to create songs that range in style from driving rock to jamming hip hop, featuring amazingly talented emerging artists. With such empowering songs as Objects in the Mirror Will Get Thinner Than They Now Appear, The Incredible Shrinking Women, You da’ Boss, I’m a Hottie Now, You Can’t Buy Thin and Skinny Jeans her music celebrates commitment, strength, and sex appeal.
Now, the 50 million
people in America alone who take the annual pledge to lose weight will
be able to find a voice – and some support and encouragement in Heidi
"We are all incredibly proud of our work," states Heidi.
"We know that we are going to make a difference in encouraging people
to right size themselves. It certainly has worked for Heidi – by
sticking to her fitness and diet plan with some help from Skinnysongs,
she has lost 30 pounds, and recently zipped up her own skinny jeans.
