Jillian Michaels Covers Shape: I Don't Like Exercise

Jillian Michaels covers Shape magazine for its May 2011 issue, on newsstands April 18.

Here's what the celebrity trainer had to share:

  • On her own battle with obesity: "I was 12 when my parents divorced. I had been a chubby kid anyway, but that was when I hit 175 pounds — and I was only five feet tall. Those were the '80s and there was a lack of knowledge about diet. My mom thought juice was better than soda, and crackers were healthier than chips. Obesity wasn’t on the radar the way it is now."
  • On having cellulite: "There's this one dimple on the back of my butt that's like a cavern. I swear to you, it's just un-friggin'-believable! No matter how thin I get, I still have cellulite. I've tried every cream. I've ironed my ass at the plastic surgeon's office with a laser — nothing worked. I've finally reached a point where I accept my flaw, but that doesn't mean I feel good about it.”
  • On not loving exercise: "I don’t like to exercise. Let’s face it, there are plenty of other things we’d all rather be doing. I know how good I’m going to feel when I’m finished, so I make myself do it — but I like to get in and get out."

They airbrushed her into a mannequin. It looks very fake to me, even though I know she has an amazing body.

I'm not a Jillian fan, but I like what she says here. Because I exercise regularly, friends often think I love it. Trust me, I'd *much* rather be watching tv, sleeping in, shopping, or doing about 100 other things. It's dedication.
