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!
Lost Over 28 Pounds
The before picture was 6 months after my daughter was born. I'm now 143 lbs. and at 5'7" that's a healthy weight for me! After my daughter was born, I was looking for a way to get back in shape at home since I had a child and became a stay at home mom. Plus, I had canceled my gym membership and my yoga membership while I was pregnant. I always knew about Jillian but had never done any of her workouts. I decided to give Jillian a shot just about two years ago and it was a rough start. I had a lot of medical issues after my baby was born, namely with my rheumatoid arthritis, but I started slow. I began with Ripped in 30, Yoga Meltdown, and jogging. Then a year ago I started Bodyshred and since then I've done it four times! Alternating Bodyshred and other monthly challenges using Fitfusion, I've been able to drop below my pre-pregnancy weight and even more importantly gain strength and muscle definition I've never had. It's fantastic! I love how strong I feel, how my body looks, and what's now exciting is I no longer have weight loss goals but only strength goals! Many thanks go out to Jillian Michaels, Kenta Seki, and the ladies of Jillian Michaels Workout Junkies! With determination, dedication, effort, and support we can all achieve our goals!

When I discovered the 30 Day Shred, I was working 50 hours a week in the emergency department, raising two kids, and drinking a bottle or two of wine every night. Where I work, I am constantly bombarded by graphic and traumatizing images...the stress is incessant, and I wasn't using food to self-medicate, I was using alcohol. I really feel that the difference Jillian makes in people's lives is inherent in its focus not just on accessibility ($700 for a personal trainer vs $7 for one of Jillian's DVDs) but on accountability. Working with you for half an hour a day, I came to realize the damage I was doing to my mind and my body by drowning it in booze. I took ownership of my own health as a direct result of your attitude and encouragement. I honestly think if I had continued drinking like I was, I would have ended up in a very early grave. You didn't just make me lean and fit. You helped me save my own life.
Lost Over 60 Pounds
I have been overweight my whole life. After having my second child, and separating from my husband, I decided that I didn't want to live my life trapped in a body that prevented me from being happy. At my heaviest weight ever, just 6 weeks after my 2nd child, I weighed 218 lbs. I changed my diet, and started walking daily. As I started to see results on the scale, as well as changes in my body, l began trying new things with my exercise routine once I was confident with my dietary changes. I started with Jillian's Body Revolution program, and it's the very first time in my life I've ever done something from start to finish. I was so proud of my progress that I purchased Jillian's Bodyshred program, which I am currently halfway through, and I am loving my results. I actually look forward to working out every morning, it's become a part of who I am, my daily routine and it's complimented my dietary changes very well. In the last 2 years since starting my weight loss journey, I've lost almost 60 lbs! I am not too far from my goal weight now, and I know when I get there, I will be able to maintain it!
Lost Over 70 Pounds
In June 2015 I woke up and said "I can't look at this reflection anymore." I was not me, to the outside world I wore a smile, but my soul was dead. I got home from work and sweated my bum off, I thought I was going to die. I didn't give up. I worked out 6 days a week and rested on Sunday's. Slowly but surely the weight began to go. I've lost 70 lbs! I mainly used BODYSHRED, which is my favorite, and I still use it 4-5x per week. I also used Jillian's kettlebell DVD for when I fancy a change and want to work out but not as intense. My family are supportive and I have the best Mr. in my life who motivates me to try my best. He has Parkinson's at the age of 49. And if he can continue to work and not give up then I'm not going to give up either. I've evolved into a better me, a me that wants to make her daughter proud and a me that helps motivate others like Jillian has with me. Thank you.
Lost Over 45 Pounds
I've been up and down with my weight since my first pregnancy. I gained 100 lbs. with my first born and held on to 50 of it through the past 4 years. Last year I finally got control and followed Jillian's DVDs. She is so inspiring. I used Kickbox Fast Fix, Ripped in 30, Hard Body and Yoga Inferno. I've lost approximately 45 lbs!
