I met Shanti “Antishay” Marshalla at the Fitness & Health Bloggers Conference a few weeks ago, at a bleary-eyed breakfast in the hotel lobby. As we introduced ourselves, she told me about her weight-loss journey, and how she has been video blogging about it YouTube since 2008. Her videos have now been viewed nearly 13 million times.
Her video playlists are titled “Losing Weight the Hard Way,” which is a nice way of thumbing her nose at all the outrageous diet claims out there. Obviously we had a lot to talk about.
(In case you’re wondering, “Antishay” is just her name in “Pig Latin.” She started using it way back when, and it seems to have stuck. Somehow, though, the name seems to make a lot of sense.)
She recently started doing an interview series on her YouTube channel, and asked if I’d share my story with her viewers. I immediately started setting up my camera!
