Biggest Loser 11 Women & Jillian Michaels

Thursday, May 19, 2011

Tuesday was was a great episode of Biggest Loser. We are down to the end of the season with next Tuesday being the live Finale. The two sisters Hannah and Olivia have a secure spot as being the final 2. I think it is awesome and I love the fact that 3 women made it to the final 4. How awesome is that. Yes I am all for Girl power bc so many of these seasons have been mainly dominated by male competitors- and not to take anything from the men bc they worked so hard too and all of them look amazing and should be so proud of where they have come from, but my goodness these are such strong woman. ♥ So I am rooting for IRENE to make it to the finale as the 3rd competitor you can vote online up to 10's. If you have not voted yet go to NBC.com and vote for IRENE!! ♥

Since this is Jillian's Final Season Here are some great Quotes by America's Favorite Tough A$$ Trainer!♥

"The past doesn't define you, your present does. It's okay to create a vision of the future because it affects your behavior in the "now," but don't dwell on past mistakes. Learn from them and focus those lessons in the moment. That’s where change can really happen."

"Transformation is not five minutes from now; it's a present activity. In this moment you can make a different choice, and it's these small choices and successes that build up over time to help cultivate a healthy self-image and self esteem."

"Whenever you’re making an important decision, first ask if it gets you closer to your goals or farther away. If the answer is closer, pull the trigger. If it's farther away, make a different choice. Conscious choice making is a critical step in making your dreams a reality."

"Nobody is perfect, so get over the fear of being or doing everything perfectly. Besides, perfect is boring. Today, instead of picking yourself apart in the mirror or with friends over drinks, start seeing your "imperfections" as unique traits that give you character and dimension—because that's exactly what they are”

"Don't blame anyone or anything for your situation or problems. When you do that, you are saying that you are powerless over your own life—which is utter crap. An empowering step to reclaiming your life is taking responsibility."

"Don't shut down your emotions. Embrace them. Your emotions are your internal compass telling you whether or not you are on track. Use them to help cultivate your passions or motivate you to change situations and circumstances that hold you back from achieving your goals."

"Unless you puke, faint, or die, keep going!" –Making the Cut: The 30-Day Diet and Fitness Plan for the Strongest, Sexiest You

"Visualize what you want out of life and think big. Don’t feel undeserving. We're all deserving of living our dreams—some of us realize it and some don't. You’re not doing anyone any favors by living small. Embrace these truths and step up. The world is waiting."

"Failure is all a matter of perspective. Think of all the people you admire. I guarantee you they all failed at one time or another. The key is to recognize setbacks for what they really are—entry points for learning, not validation that you aren’t good enough. After a disappointment analyze your actions, get feedback from friends, and take inventory of what you could do better next time. This type of self-reflection and improvement will ultimately make success inevitable."

"Don't repress your needs and feelings. They fester, becoming corrosive and destructive in your relationships. In a calm, loving way, tell the people in your life what you need. Don't expect people to read your mind. It only leads to disappointment and frustration. Empower them to empower you!"

"The trick is not escaping your fear, but confronting it and allowing it to drive and teach you. Only by getting to the bottom of your fears can you find their valuable lessons and move forward stronger than before."

"Ask yourself this: How much deprivation, how much self-effacement must you suffer through before you act on your desire for meaning and fulfillment? Before it’s your turn to thrive in your life, instead of barely surviving it? Some people live their dreams. Why not you?"

"You're much more likely to reach your goals if they're your goals, speaking to your desires, rather than the desires of outside influences. Goals that are meaningful to you will keep you inspired and driven towards success."

    I am SO going to miss Jillian next season! Thank you for sharing these excerpts!

    I'm rooting for Irene, too. She hasn't always claimed the biggest part of the spotlight, but she has been plugging away, working to consistently chip away at her weight and reach a high level of strength and fitness. Her results speak for themselves.

    I watched the show on Tuesday and could not stop crying. I started watching in the beginning of the season and then quit bec I was prego. This show is amazing and the original trainers are as well. I had no clue this was Jillian last season.

    I'm rooting for Irene to make it too. I think it'll make it a little more fair because all of the girls look pretty much near goal weight, if you ask me. They don't have much further to go. I know they all will come back SUPER skinny at the finale...TOO skinny probably. But, that's what everybody does for finale. Then afterwards they get themselves to the weight that they ACTUALLY want to be at which is usually at least 10 lbs heavier. Also, with Irene in the final 3 it GUARANTEES that we will have a female biggest loser again. It's been two years and IT'S TIME! :-)
