Lose weight and shape up with inspirational lyrics that are good for your body and soul.

Looking for the motivation to get in shape? The CD, "Skinny Songs," may help. It includes titles like "Use it or Lose it" and "The Incredible Shrinking Women." The lyrics were all written by a successful Bay Area businesswoman and mother of two, who needed some inspiration to lose weight.

About Heidi Roizen and Skinny Jeans:

What do great music and losing weight have in common? According to one of Silicon Valley's best-known 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, CEO of About Records and former senior executive 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 Roizen's music.

"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.

SKINNYSONGS is available on Amazon and SnoCap, and will be on iTunes soon. The CD retails for $14.99.
