An Open Letter to Jillian Michaels

Dear Jillian,

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

I am physically fit again because of you. After two years of carrying around post-baby and postpartum weight, I am healthy again. I have not dieted. I have not had to adopt an “Insanity” or P90X workout (just the names scare me!). And most importantly, I have not had to give up time with my kids.

In 25 minutes a day, you work me. OK, I admit that I mute you out because the banter drains me and my iTunes music is far preferable to the jazzy workout music that runs in the background of the banter. But even in silence you motivate me, tone me, and make me sweat.

I have shredded. More than I thought possible. In four days I saw results. In thirty (not even consecutively) I dropped 2 pant sizes.

It wasn’t extreme. It caused me to make life changes, but didn’t require a complete life makeover. I have energy, I have motivation, I feel good – both internally and externally.

You gave me something back in those thirty days. It went beyond the weight loss. I got back my old self. I felt restored.

Your thirty-day shred is amazing. Although, I have to admit, level 3 still makes me curl up in a ball and cry!


A more toned, fit mama
