On Jillian

Just a few short months ago I became a fan of The Biggest Loser. I know, I know, a little late in the game! But after watching the show only once or twice, I was hooked. How can you not love a television show where people are getting their lives back and inspiring our ever-growing nation to get healthy?! Drama set aside, it really is a great show!

Anyway, what started out as a sheer annoyance of Jillian Michaels has actually grown into a fondness for her. I suppose because I have come to learn that everyone is motivated in different ways and all types of trainers are needed, I've learned to tolerate Jillian's drill sargeant techniques (obviously not a style I am inclined to). And somewhere over the last few episodes of Biggest Loser, I actually decided to watch her new show that premeired last night, Losing it with Jillian.

To be honest, I haven't decided if I like it or not. It might take me a few more hours to mull it over.

While on her website last night during the show (clever advertising!) I came across the Wellness Cruise sponsored by Jillian. Imagine going on a cruise that is not focused on completely indulging yourself (and inevitably gaining 5 pounds), but on renewing your health while getting in fun fitness classes, healthy seminars and tons of delicious cuisine that is actually good for you! Now that is the kind of cruise I could get on board with!

And on that note, I plan on reading her book, Master Your Metabolism, since I've heard such great things about it

Are you a Jillian Michaels fan?

i really need to check out her mom always tells me that she thinks i would like them. i agree though...the drill sergeant stuff is sort of a turn off for me!

I have been a big fan of Biggest Loser for the last two seasons, and I too watched the premier of losing it last night. On BL, Jill is definitely a little over the top for me, however I do appreciate her attention to deeper psychological issues that of course affect the body / mind / health. Not sure if I like the new show either :-)
