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!
Lost Over 150 Pounds
I started my journey August 12th 2015. I wanted gastric bypass but my husband said absolutely not, but he said he'd help me with diet and exercise and we'd figure it out together. Because of Jillian I accepted responsibility for my weight and owned 100% of it. With the knowledge that only I was the reason for being morbidly obese came the realization that ONLY I could be the answer. I started with Beginner Shred and 1 lb. weights, which I bought for my birthday. I was 335 lbs. I could barely get up the stairs by myself and I was 31 years old. I am currently using Body Revolution and to date I've lost 160 lbs. in 15 months! I'm not done yet. I don't think you're ever "done" with this journey but once I'm done with weight loss I'll just have different goals. I can't wait. Thank you Jillian!
Lost Over 114 Pounds
Just over three years ago I set a goal to lose 100 lbs. I was tired of being uncomfortable, embarassed, and sick all of the time. I made it a priority to educate myself on what healthy eating was and follow through with a healthy lifestyle, not ‘diet.’ I made exercising 6 times a week a non-negotiable. I began feeling revitalized, confident, and happy. Three years later I have surpassed that goal and currently have lost 114 lbs! The journey and my new life is more rewarding than I ever could have imagined! It is so worth all of the hard work and dedication. My favorite Jillian workouts are 30 Day Shred and Ripped in 30. They are both awesome, and quick total body workouts! I am a full time educator and full time graduate student, so popping in one of those workouts on my busy days makes me feel rejuvenated and strong!

I use The Biggest Loser Challenge Journal and Meal Planner book along with the JM app. The upload is a picture of me and my daughter, because we made this a mother-daughter thing. I lost 17 lbs and my daughter lost 30 lbs.
Lost Over 20 Pounds
I started my fitness journey when I was 17 by going to Weight Watchers. I was ‘chubby’ from the time I was around nine years old until I graduated high school. After losing a little weight by simply eating healthy (no exercise) and hitting a plateau, at 19 I discovered the power of working out. At that time, I started riding my bike 12.5 miles 5x a week and did Jane Fonda workouts and finally reached my goal weight (and then some!). Throughout the years, I've continued working out at home with DVDs, even through two pregnancies, and following the ‘everything in moderation’ diet and I've kept the weight off. My home workouts have been mainly your DVDs the past 2-3 years and at 45 years old (closing in on 46), I am healthy, fit and happy. Thank you so much for the inspiration and for all you do! <3
