Tammy had been overweight her entire life. The event that spurred her to make a major change was when her husband asked her for a divorce. She quickly realized she wasn't happy and made a list of what she wanted to change about herself — on that list was 'lose weight'. She joined JillianMichaels.com and wound up losing 152 pounds!
How She Did It: "I followed Jillian's program strictly. I worked out five days a week with two rest days, used her circuit training workouts and DVDs, and followed her suggested calorie limit — between 1200-1400 per day. I also kept a diary of my food intake each day."
Best Advice: "Find a workout buddy, a partner in crime. Pick someone who will push you when you need the encouragement but who can also comfort you when the stress gets hard to manage. Believe in yourself and know that you'll cross the finish line. No one can want it bad enough for you. You have to want it for yourself — and more than anything."
