    Jillian and Me-How to Exercise with an Injury


    Jillian and Me-My Weight Loss Journey


    I have decided to document myself as I journey to lose 100 pounds.  So far, I have lost 9 in just under 2 weeks.


    I have decided to take the inspiration, motivation, and love of Jillian Michaels along with me on this incredible journey.


    I am currently following Jillian on Twitter @JillianMichaels and you can follow me @HitsandMisses.  I am also a member of her website:


    and you can find out more information about her supplements atL



    I have been a fan of the Biggest Loser since the very first season.  It is currently in its 8th season.  The 9th season just started production.  My sister and I tried out for the show a couple of years ago, but obviously did not make it.


    I already did a preliminary interview with her:



    I still have a lot of great information she has given me that I hope to share in the future via our telephone interview.


    This is just the beginning.  I can't wait to see the end.


    In this first iReport, I talk about what changes I have made so far and how to exercise with my current knee surgery.  I am using the Kaisen Theory, which is baby steps.  I learned recently at a Weight Loss Orientation that if you go the "die hard" way then your mind goes into survival mode and your sub-conscience sabotages you.


    Thank you to everyone who has shown their support!
