Lost Over 160 pounds
I lost my thyroid at age 17 to cancer. At the time I weighed 150 lbs. By my wedding at age 20 (in 2005) I weighed 185 lbs. By my divorce in 2010 I weighed a whopping 299 lbs!! Losing my thyroid had really messed me up. In 2007 I discovered your programs, and today I weigh 140 lbs! I look and feel SO much better! And look at my ABS!!! All it took was a clean diet and your programs!! Thank you so much!!

I realise that my story differs vastly from others, but either way you inspired me. I had both my feet reconstructed in 2010 due to a genetic defect that would cause me to lose the ability to walk later on in life. I was wheelchair bound and on crutches for a year, and had to do another full year of rehab to be able to walk properly again. I had lost all hope that I would ever be able to be strong and fit again. That is when one of my friends gifted me one of your workout programs. I suffered for months getting the hang of all of it. But I stuck with it...and I still stick with it. I was given your book "Making the Cut" for Christmas because my friends know how obsessed with you I am. With your inspiration I was able to push myself so train hard enough to become the South African Freediving woman's 2017 Champion and break 3 freediving records. I can't thank you enough for pushing me when no one else did.

Hi my name is Amanda and I've lost over 75lbs. At my heaviest weight I was 245lbs and now I'm 169lbs. I've always been overweight until about 4 years ago I was done with feeling fat and unhealthy. I started to eat healthier and workout. I would try to run everyday and in the beginning it was a real struggle because when I would try to run my body would move so slow and I couldn't breathe well. Eventually I got better at running and started to lose weight. A few months into working out, my cousin introduced me into Jillian Michaels workout videos and that's when my real transformations began. I remember being so frustrated at not being able to do lunges with proper form and I would just continue on with the video. Eventually after doing Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones for a few weeks, I began to feel stronger and I was able to finish my set of lunges without having to stop and with proper form. After I could finish the whole workout of Jillian's I went on to more of Jillian's videos (killer buns and thighs, killer and, hard body, killer body and killer arms and back). All of her videos have been extremely effective by getting the body I wanted and becoming stronger. Thank you Jillian for being you!!

I truthfully have no idea where I would be without your videos. Since March, I am down 35 pounds. But more importantly, I have gained the mental happiness and stability I needed so badly. Your videos have guided me through my weight loss journey, giving me a reason to get up somedays and keep going during the darkest times in my life. I was able to get into nursing school with a 4.0, hold a job, while paying for everything on my own, and still lose the weight - thanks to you. I started becoming so unhealthy as a result of being sick, with something that no one to this day could figure out. I was on antibiotics (including steroids) constantly, and ALWAYS felt sick. I have extreme anxiety, which also led to problems with things such as heart palpitations and even times where I would nearly faint from the stress. Your videos put me in a completely different place. Slowly but surely, the health problems lessened as the weight came off. The anxiety that would once confine me to my bed, has almost gone unnoticeable from a day to day view. As mentioned, this was one of the darkest times in my life. Your videos gave me a way out. The love and admiration I feel for you as a person, and what you've done for me, my health, and my overall life is too much to even try to put into words. I now get messages a few times a week from girls asking me how I did it and how they can do it to, and of course, because it's what is deserved, I tell them all about YOU. Thank you Jillian, for saving me.
Lost Over 125 pounds
I have struggled with PCOS my entire life. Every year my weight crept up until I found myself at 300lbs. My breaking point was when I hit 300lbs. I bounced around from endocrinologist to endocrinologist until I found one that was willing to help me. I was also diagnosed with hashimotos thyroid. Both conditions make it twice as hard to lose weight than others but I didn’t let it stop me. Jillian’s DVDs got me into my weight loss journey. The first day I did 30 day shred, level 1 I didn’t even make it through the workout. I thought I was going to either throw up or pass out in the shower that night. Big wake up call. I found her to be very motivating and inspirational and stuck with it. Now I am 125 lbs+ down and still going. I am now able to do her workouts on level 3 in conjunction with other activities. I am running 10k’s and able to work out for 2-3 hours at a time. Jillian woke the athlete in me. I follow her on Instagram along with other fitness celebrities, however she is my favorite because she keeps it real. I have hit a plateau and instead of letting it discourage me I have been watching her workouts online and trying them out for myself at the gym. Jillian has taught me that if I put in the work I will see results. I trust her methods completely and will continue to do her workouts and suggest them to others that want to change their lives!

I originally focused on nutrition and lost 60 lbs in 8 months. Then I decided to start with 30 Day Shred to tighten and tone. I cycled through it for 5 months, increasing intensity and weights as I could. Most recently, I switched to extreme shed and shred which I have finished level 1 for 1 month and am currently on day 2 of level 2. I love Jillian Michaels workouts!! My results are amazing!

I was always a biggish girl, and I was in a not great relationship since I was 17 until I was 28. To cope with every problem, I ate.. mostly chocolate on top of everything. No breakfasts nor lunch.. sometimes just sweets all day long. I met the best guy when I was 29. He is loving and caring, he loved me as big as I was. But I was unhappy in my skin for a long time. I felt like a whale. 2 years ago my good friend showed me Jillian and 30 Day Shred. That night I came home and started to work out and I have never looked back. I have all Jillian's books and dvd and have changed my diet completely.. In the last 30 days, I cut out all artificial sugar and in 5 weeks we're getting married. I love my body now. I love the way of living, meal preps, and work outs. Thank you Jillian. You showed me new way of life and most important you showed me how to lose weight. I tried few times in my past but nothing ever worked. Thank you!
