In this episode of our Six Weeks to Fitness podcast, I will be joined by Shaniqua Garvin, a widowed single mom, and event planner, raising her young son in New York City. She is the founder and CEO of her lifestyle blog, Brown Media Mama. During the interview, Shaniqua will discuss her weight loss journey which began after losing her husband to heart disease at the age of 38 and how this tragedy motivated her to improve her health for the sake of her son. While working on her weight loss, Shaniqua was told about an open casting call that Oprah’s “O” Magazine had to spotlight women and their weight loss journey. Shaniqua wrote in to the magazine and explained how the loss of her husband inspired her to lose weight and how she could not do it alone. To Shaniqua’s surprise and excitement, she immediately received a call from the magazine and was selected among 9 other women to share their weight loss journey and grace the cover of the April, 2016 “O” Magazine with Oprah. Shaniqua will share what it was like to meet Oprah and Gayle during the photo shoot and how that experience has changed her life for the better. Shaniqua is determined to share her story on the importance of taking care of your health. This is a very heartfelt and inspiring episode.

Battling weight issues in her teens and 20s, Ashanti recognized a pattern. No matter how much she ate or worked out, weight was the side-effect of her stress-level. During the interview, Ashanti will discuss what happened when she moved to Chicago in her early 20s that set a light bulb off in her head, which caused her to discover the real reason why so many people remain overweight in spite of the exercise and diets they are on.

In this Episode of our Six Weeks to Fitness podcast, I am joined by former fashion model, Ed Lewis, Sr. and his son, Ed Lewis, Jr. Instead of pursuing his promising career as a fashion model, where he modeled for Sean John clothing line and was featured in various magazines such as Vibe, DNR and The Source, Eddie Lewis, Sr., decided to turn his back on the modeling industry and all that the industry had to offer, the money, travel and more, to raise his son, who is now one of the most heavily recruited high school football players in New Jersey. He has offers from over 10 Division 1 colleges. It has been a long, hard road for Eddie, Sr., and in the midst of days when there was no food on the table and no money in the bank, he always made sure his son was well fed and had a roof over his head. In Eddie Sr.’s words, “I had to rob Peter to pay Paul” and then mug Paul to pay back Peter”. This interview is about the journey of a parent who has risked it all for his son and how his son is now reaping the rewards of his father’s sacrifice. Father and son join me to talk about the struggle and triumphs that they both endured. This is a very moving and inspiring episode on a personal level.

In this Episode of our Six Weeks to Fitness podcast, I am joined by Sirobe Carstafhnur, a talented Architect and Urban Planner and creator of “Mind Your Shape”, a wellness program that combines traditional weight loss methods with emotional support, body empowerment strategies, private personal training, nutritional and culinary education, and an artistic curation of the individual's progress. The goal of the program is to enable an individual to take full responsibility and pride in their own well-being and to embark on the journey to a healthier and more sustainable way of life. During the interview, Sirobe will take us back to when she was a child growing up in Mississippi and although her childhood started out like most children, very active, and happy with a supportive family structure around her, something happened to Sirobe when she was around 6 or 7 years old that affected her both mentally, emotionally and physically. Sirobe will talk about this traumatic experience and more in this interview.
Sirobe considers herself a “work in progress” and with her creative and supportive team around her, she is documenting her transformation along the way and helping others who are in need of support through her Mind Your Shape program.
