Default Jillian used to be big!

I take heart in the fact that Jillian Michaels is even shorter than I am, and she used to be heavier than me. It was a long time ago, granted but just look at what she accomplished. I think that's inspiration enough for anyone.

Oh wow! She mentions in her interviews/shows sometimes that she used to be larger, but I've never seen a picture before. She's a little powerhouse of woman now!

Did you see that she has her 2 children. Her daughter she adopted and her son that Heidi had?

I did see! She'd been trying for so long. I'm really glad it all worked out for her. She's my hero.

I'd love to meet her. I think if I had a training session with her I'd push myself 110% because I'd hate to disappoint her, haha!

She's so great. I found an article quoting her as saying she was 175lbs "and miserable." Not huge by any stretch of the imagination, but definitely plump for how short she is!

Edit: Sorry, I'm not sure I can make this picture any smaller.

175 and 5'2 is Obesity on the BMI calculator.

I'm 5'2 just like Jillian, and for us shorties the pounds shows a lot more than the same weight on a 5'6 person.

And as you can probably tell by my avatar, I'm a Jillian fan.
