Jillian,ohhhh Jillian......

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Like many of you I watched the premier of The Biggest Loser.In the past I would
Eat my favorite sugar crack foods,wishing I could look like Ali, Michelle or Helen.

Was great to see Jillian back,that woman has a built in bs meter that was going off the charts the 1st 2 weeks.

If it were as simple as stopping the junk and moving,there would be no SP,Weight Watchers or any
other weight control program. I had to look at why I would kill myself working out, only to commit
Program suicide with junk food at night. Definately not what I wanted.

She has an amazing book called Unlimited.Being honest
In answering the questions showed me to be a people pleaser.
Forget what I wanted,I put myself in a mold to be what was expected.

Losing was easy for me,I was a one woman machine.When I hit my goal,not medicating with junk food, many emotions I hadn't dealt with came raging up to the surface.

Still a work in progress, this time around I hold myself accountable
For the choices I make. That bag of chocolate did not just fly unassisted down my throat.

Everyday we can CHOOSE to move forward with our goals,or we can CHOOSE to put the blinders on.

Thank you Jillian for being the butt kicker you are and to my SP family who make option 1
a lot easier .

    I agree she can be very tough. I don't think I would like to have her as a trainer.

    I find it funny that so many people think Jillian is the mean one on the show. Sure she does more yelling and getting in the face of the contestants than Bob does, but look at Bob when he's training and people are slobbering, crying and falling over... he's always got a wicked smile on his face! I think Bob is a sadist and enjoys the pain of others!!!! LOL

I will say that I would probably prefer Bob as a trainer, but I would definitely not be upset to have Jillian. She just wants to cut through the emotional self sabotage of her team right at the beginning, force them to expose themselves and be face their emotional demons. Without doing that nothing will change long term for those folks.

    I loved Susan Powter. Modify, modify, modify. She's a firmer believer in moving. I never bought Jillian's books. I have a lot of Susan Powter books. I have to modify. I have chronic pain and I can't always jump and I can't bend without a lot of stretching. I can't do a lot of moves due to pain or stiffness. I'm not moving in a way that my body doesn't want to move. I never broke a bone or tore a ligament. I'm not going to start now. People on Biggest Loser tear and break their bodies. I don't have a medic on hand if I hurt myself. emoticon

    AGK,it is back on Monday nights on NBC. I listen to her podcasts as well as her little show on everyday health.She is blunt ,but if you listen to her in different formats he also is very caring about people and the torture we heap on our own heads.

    I have a love/hate relationship with Jillian. I like the no nonsense attitude, but when she starts yelling, I turn off. I have one of her DVDs and when she starts in about not skipping (or modifying) the jumping jacks because "400 pound people can do them" I yell back that "it's not a natural motion for me." Be quiet, I have other options! I'll modify if I want to. It's my body and according to your disclaimer, you aren't responsible for injuries. I wouldn't do well in the Marines either. LOL.
