Lost Over 40 Pounds
I was depressed and anxious and unhealthy and eating lots of sugary food. I had four kids and figured my body was ruined!! I found a post on a Jillian DVD my friend tried and haven't quit since. I do Jillian 6 days a week for only 1 hr per day and this is what happened!! Never been prouder of my body!!
Lost Over 45 Pounds
When I was pregnant with my first I used it as an excuse and loaded up on whatever I craved, mostly Taco Bell! After my daughter was born my blood pressure wouldn't go down and they wanted to put me on medication. I knew I needed to lose weight. I gained 45 pounds! With Jillian's help and learning about proper nutrition, on my daughters 1st birthday I weighed my pre pregnancy weight. Now after two years of consistently working with Jillian 5-6 days a week and keeping up on clean eating I have KEPT the weight off and GAINED muscle! Jillian helped me get my life back and off unnecessary medication. Thank you Jillian! I am pregnant with my second, and still healthier than ever. Once I get the clear after my 6 weeks postpartum I look forward to having you help me again.
Lost Over 77 Pounds
My name is Muriel. I'm 37 years old and I have 3 kids and this is my second weight loss journey. In 2013, I was 224 lbs. May of that year I decided to go on a weight loss journey. I was introduced to Jillian's 30 Day Shred, Ripped In 30, and Extreme Shed and Shred by a co-worker. She showed me how to use MyFitnessPal, and told me to stay consistent with my workouts. I lost 75 lbs. When I was pregnant with my twins in 2015, I gained 85 lbs. I never had any doubt that I would lose the weight. After having the twins, I was back where I started. I started with 30 Day Shred on 11/1/15, and when I was finished with that DVD, I went on to Ripped In 30. I reached out to my friend Erica who helped me with the nutrition side of it. I'm also associated with JMWJunkies on FB. This group kept me motivated when I could not workout after having the babies. These ladies were so inspiring, encouraging, and positive. Fast forward to now, I have lost all but 8 lbs of the 85 lbs I gained with the twins. Thanks to JM DVD's and running. I hope my story helps someone. I've been told by so many that I'm easy to relate to, because I'm not an actress. I'm the girl next door that grew up in the same neighborhood as them. So, that alone I think is what inspires my journey and motivates me.
Lost Over 80 Pounds
I always had problems with my weight and always tried to lose weight! When I saw that I weighed approx. 240 lbs. I knew I had to do something! I have tried many DVDs and different fitness studios but nothing helped. Then I saw Jillian’s DVDs and thought to myself “I’ll try it out!" And since then, thanks to you, I have lost over 80 lbs. and have reached my ideal weight. I now weigh 160 lbs. and in just 6 months. To stay in shape, I do 30 minutes of exercise daily with Ripped in 30 and Extreme Shed & Shred DVDs. Thank you again Jillian, you are the best! Thank you for your help!
Lost Over 65 Pounds
I suffered a brain hemorrhage at the age of 10 followed by a stroke and stopped breathing a number of times. I was never into P.E. at school and was constantly bullied throughout the years. I began binging on junk food at the age of 21. I hadn't weighed myself for years but after reaching a UK size 18-20 I knew I had to. I weighed in at over 203 lbs. I cried but I knew I had to do something so I bit the bullet and bought 30 Day Shred and started eating healthy. It was difficult to begin with but I've never looked back. I'm now 137 lbs and a UK size 8-10 with a small collection of Jillian Michaels DVDs. I have a permanent weakness on my right hand side following the stroke but I'm so proud of where I am now and where I'm yet to go. If I could I'd thank Jillian myself!
Lost Over 120 Pounds
I have a history of back problems tied with being overweight. Back in 2013, I was done making excuses and started making small changes. By July of 2014, I had only lost 10 lbs but it was enough to push me into overdrive. I used Jillian's 30 Day Shred to jumpstart my initial weight loss and since I have gone from 258 to 135 lbs and kept the weight off for about two years and going strong!!
Lost Over 140 Pounds
Twelve years ago, at age 23, a young mom of two kids and over 300 lbs I thought my only option to losing weight was weight loss surgery, but after seeing 3 relatives lose weight with surgery only to gain it all back soon after, I decided I didn't want to spend all that money to rearrange my insides for something that obviously has more to do with lifestyle and less to do with a smaller stomach. So I decided to do it the "old fashioned" way with diet and exercise. I did have some help in the beginning with some medication from my doctor that taught me how much I needed to move and how much/little to eat, but after a couple months I was able to do it on my own and a year and a half later I had lost 140 lbs after learning it was all about calories in and calories out! Just like Jillian says! That was in 2004/2005 and I have kept it off, even with having my third baby in 2008. Being healthy is my passion now! I love working out and Jillian has helped me learn to love it! I have pretty much every one of her DVDs and books! I hope to inspire others to show them they can do it too! It wasn't an overnight transformation! It's one day, one hour, one meal and one workout at a time! There is no quick fix, but it IS DOABLE! You will always have your ups and downs but I am living proof 12 years later that you can lose the weight and keep it off!
Lost Over 145 Pounds
Jillian, I am so thankful to you. Thanks to your support and motivating way I have managed to lose 67 kilos (almost 150 lbs) since starting in August 2015. My lifestyle has radically changed. I started with 30 Day Shred. I changed my diet and I am now much more aware and pay attention, but I never went hungry or "dieted". At the moment I'm doing One Week Shred and Ripped in 30. I am 23 years old and spent years locked in a body that has never really fitted me until now. I am really grateful because I never thought it would be possible to find fun in exercise. There were no excuses for me, I always pulled it off. Every day. I am very proud and happy. Thank you.
Lost Over 40 Pounds
I gained more than 45 lbs. through my pregnancy, struggled with these extra pounds of fat even after 12 months postpartum. I decided to make changes to be fit and healthy again, so I started to eat more healthy and eat a balanced diet since the end of 2011. I came across Jillian's DVD in 2015 while I was struggling with my flabby tummy. I started BODYSHRED in May 2015 and I got huge results from it! I had my first ever 6 pack in my life, even after becoming a mum! I am truly thankful to Jillian for her awesome workout program!! Apart from BODYSHRED I also used her Shred It with Weights DVD! It was awesome too! Thank you JM!
Lost Over 100 Pounds
I was obese most of my life, reaching my heaviest at 235+ in my mid 20's. I lived a very unhealthy lifestyle and didn't take care of my body or health at all. In 2012 I gave birth to my daughter and realized I needed to change my life for me and, more importantly, her. In Feb 2013 I discovered 30 Day Shred, I was hooked. Fast forward to today and I have done all of Jillian's videos/programs multiple times and am now creating my own combos using her kick-ass DVDs. I never skip a workout and owe all of my results to Miss Michaels herself. Since 2013 I have changed my whole life. I work out daily, eat healthy, abstain from alcohol and live a positive happy lifestyle. I am now 125 lbs. and have maintained it for the last 2 years, only continuing to get stronger, leaner and meaner! If I can lose 100+ pounds so can ALL OF YOU!
