I want to jump up for Joy! I took the picture on the left to make myself accountable. Accountable for myself. I was tired, overweight, never wanted to get off the couch and had no confidence in myself. I moved to Florida and on Aug 24th, 2015 I took control of myself at 250 pounds. I realized my husband and kids needed me around. I needed to show them that it isn't healthy to be that weight. It took me a 2years 8 months to Finally Scream and Shout that I have officially lost 100 pounds. Now weighing in at 150 pounds. My husband and kids were and still are my biggest fans. This was the weight I was when I got married 11 years ago. I knew this was and still is a journey. I refuse to stop trying to be the best of me. I will not stop working out because I am not aiming to be Skinny, but my Goal is to be Stronger!! I have NEVER HAD SURGERY, NEVER USED DIET PILLS NOR DID I DO ANY DIET PROGRAM. I DID THIS ALL ON MY OWN WITH THE HELP OF JILLIAN MICHAELS DVDS. Everyone needs to know its possible and that they can take control. Cheers to the Healthy ME
Lost Over 150 pounds
At 16 years old and just over 300 pounds, I decided to take a step into realizing a healthier lifestyle. Just a year and a half later, after changing my entire lifestyle, taking a personal training course, and developing a love for cooking and nutrition I had lost over 150 pounds. It has been three years now since I lost the weight have gone on to become an exercise enthusiast, and devote my future to becoming an clinical oncology dietitian. I am currently in my second year of my studies in Nutritional Sciences and Dietetics and have had so many amazing opportunities to help youth just like me!

Well, my name is Ryan Lill, and I’m a Singer/Songwriter from Charleston, SC. I’ve toured, released an album, and have even sung with some of the big names out there! I have always been a bigger guy - food has been every emotion for me, and let’s get real, being gay and being an artist, I have a lot of them. I have always admired Jillian, everything about her - her spirit, her way of raising people up, and her attitude that you WILL mess up, you WILL make mistakes, and that’s how you grow and learn. I’ve grown up watching her help thousands of people, and I always felt like if I could just get that help, I’d be golden. I’ve tried it all, every diet under the sun, every gym, class, shake, pill, you name it, I’ve tried it. I’ve always been afraid of the gym, and felt uncomfortable with the eyes of those around me being glued to my struggle. Being in the music industry, you’re often judged on your appearance, and you have to be able to perform a show - and that’s hard when you’re over 300 pounds. At first I would do a few clips of workouts that she’s shared on social media, and even videos that I’d buy from the store. I have a collection of them now! My latest dvd that I’m using is the Ultimate Box Set with the body burn in it. At first I couldn’t keep up, I did the bare minimum and allowed myself to slow my movements so that I could do all of them, just in my own time. I’ve lost over 90lbs, and recently on the Ultimate Box Set, I’ve lost another 8! I love how unbelievably comfortable it is for me to get a ridiculously hard workout in the comfort of wherever I chose! I love how real she is, and how caring she is to the people who come to her for help. She’s amazing, and she’s helped me more then she knows. I’m inspired by Jillian, and I truly hope that I can reach my final goal weight, and be able to inspire others not just with my music, but with my story. I have a long way to go, but I’m proud of who I am, and I’m proud of how far I’ve come!
Lost Over 50 pounds
As a college athlete, I was always active and in shape. After graduating, I continued to eat like an athlete and gained a significant amount of weight. A marriage, two kids, and a stressful job later, I was tipping the scales at almost 200lbs. In 2015, I lost my job and my eating really spiraled out of control and I started becoming sedentary. In 2017, I decided to focus on my self care and took advantage of the Mother’s Day promo and bought Jillian’s app. The workouts combined with the meal plan has helped me lose 50lbs in just 8 months! I have always enjoyed working out but could eat my way out of any of them. It’s true that abs are make in the kitchen! The combination of fresh workouts and easy, healthy recipes has put me at a weight I haven’t seen since high school! So happy I found Jillian’s app!
Lost Over 40 pounds
I gained 40 pounds due to a bad divorce and a drinking problem due to too much stress in the relationship. Jillian Michaels helped me focus and find myself again. I now feel alive and healthy and have made Jillian Michaels workouts a part of my lifestyle. I met a amazing guy and just had a beautiful baby girl. The before picture was taken a month before my divorce in 2015 and the after was taken 4 weeks after my baby girl was born.
Lost Over 110 pounds
I began to struggle with my weight in my 20s when I became less active. Then at the birth of my first daughter I weighed my heaviest at 248. I fluctuated some and had my son two years later in January 2014. When he was 6 months old and I was about 200lbs a friend gave me the Body Revolution program. So I started that program. And after 90 days, I did it again and again. And then later I followed it with Jillian’s other workouts. In about a 9 month span of time I went down to 138 lbs! Since then I continue to exercise and eat right and have kept the weight off. Thank you Jillian! You changed my life.
Lost Over 50 pounds
I went into the military in 2010, lost about 30lbs and came out lean and semi-strong. Got out in 2015 and from 2015 until February 2017, I gained 50lbs. I was depressed and in a miserable relationship that I ate my feelings. When we broke up I decided to make it a year of me. I was on IG and saw Jillian, and decided at random that I no longer would be a victim of my own mind and depression.

After 2 C-sections, I finally decided I couldn't call it "baby weight" anymore when my youngest was 10 years old! I am so thankful I found Jillian's workouts, it was the first time I stuck to something because they were actually achievable! I started looking forward to her kicking my ass every day because I felt myself getting stronger so fast! Thanks to Jillian, I've lost over 50 pounds and am healthier now than I was in high school!! Trust me, she knows what she's doing!!
