Even Jillian Struggled With Weight Issues

Jillian took second place as the trainer you'd want from "The Biggest Loser," so it's no secret that there is something about her we like and can see in ourselves. Well, it may be that Jillian has also struggled with her weight too, and that is something we can all relate to.

Here's more:

Even though she is now one of the leading personal trainers in the industry, Jillian struggled with her weight and appearance throughout most of her youth. After being introduced to the martial arts, Jillian finally found the motivation to transform her appearance. She studied Muay Thai and Akarui-Do, in which she eventually earned a black belt. One of the most important lessons her instructor ever taught her was to reverse her negative thinking.

Along with dropping the negative attitude, Jillian's number one tip is to control your environment to the best of your ability. So instead of telling yourself you are not going to eat any bread at a restaurant, Jillian believes you should immediately ask the waiter not to bring any bread to the table. Great tip - I do this myself!

While you're working on controlling your environments, let this post serve as your reminder that "The Biggest Loser" is on tonight 8:30/7:30 central if you want to watch it.
