ESM Podcast: Episode #6: 150lb Weight Loss Success Story — Shapely Girl Fitness Founder Debra Mazda

Almost 30 years ago, Debra Mazda weighed nearly 300lbs.

Fueled by a desire to feel better, weigh less, and have a better life, Debra made the decision to start working out at a neighbourhood gym.

Remember, those were the days before the Internet—before we had access to tons of information, could ask experts questions, and could support. It was also before we could choose from thousands of workout DVDs and do our workouts from home. Also, this was a time when morbid obesity was rare. For Debra, walking into a gym wasn’t just a brave thing to do, it was a life changer.

Not only did she lose 150lbs, but she went on to become a fitness instructor and founder of Shapely Girl Fitness.

Over the years, Debra has opened, and maintained a fitness studio and created a collection of workout DVDs and motivational CDs. Her down to earth personality and empathy for people of all sizes and fitness levels has garnered her loyal fans who describe her as “encouraging”, “a great motivator”, and “sassy”.

Within this interview, Debra shares her personal story and gives tons of suggestions on losing weight and making workouts a priority.
