"she struggled with weight problems during her early teens"

I'm really wondering the relevance?

I just watched a clip from the Jeff Probst show, and they showed a picture. She was kind of chunky in her early teens, but not grossly overweight.

Awesome!! Thanks, everybody. I'll have to pick up that book. Also, the relevance?? Well, it helps to know that someone in that great of shape struggled with issues also. It's hard to believe a lot of trainers if they have never struggled with weight themselves. Gives us hope :)

Richard Simons was very overweight, too.

Which is why before I undergo a medical procedure, I insist that the doctor has undergone the same procedure. You wouldn't believe how many doctors I had to interview before I could find one to fix my shoulder.

Jillian Michaels has always told her BL contestants that she understands where they are coming from. It's hard to believe when there is very little evidence available to support her claim that she was once overweight or obese. It's also easier to accept someone's advice if you know they TRULY understand what you are going through (whether it's regarding weight loss or some other difficulty in life).
November 21, 2012 10:40 AM
Yep :) That's what I'm saying!!

I heard she had a six pack straight out of the womb.
November 21, 2012 11:04 AM
Yes... She was fairly overweight... Have you heard of her book "Unlimited" How To Build An Exceptional Life?
She talks about her weight struggle in that book a little bit. I have the book on my Nook Book App on my Cell. Very very good book.. She does know what its like to be overweight... She knows..

If I ever find myself overweight and struggling, I hope I will rely more on the relevance and accuracy of the advice than I will whether or not the person giving the advice was overweight as a teen.
