Losing It with Jillian

Follow along below as each week Jillian visits families needing her help:

Week 1: The Mastropietro family of Wilmington, MA

– See below for background on Losing It with Jillian –

“Yes, NBC has finally lost their minds and decided to give me my own show,” posted the trainer on her Facebook page last fall.

The premise of the show will be a grand departure from what you’ve seen on Biggest Loser, as Jillian will move in with a different family each week. In an almost immersion therapy-like atmosphere, Jillian will be at home, go to work and school and be involved in every other facet of the family’s lives for a week helping them gain control of their health through diet and exercise.

In our interview with Jillian last fall about Losing It, she told us she was tired of hearing from Biggest Loser fans that the weight loss would be easy enough if they could make it to the ranch. So, Jillian and the producers alleviated that problem. “We’re telling people, we’ll come to you and teach you how to be healthy,” she says.

Another Biggest Loser fixture, chef Curtis Stone, will also be a frequent guest on Losing It. Jillian called him a “natural and obvious choice” to help her work with the families in areas she may not be an expert. Other guests will tackle issues like finances.

I have found this show to be very inspirational.

The Biggest Loser is great but it just has such a "game show" quality to it, and everything is the obsession over the numbers on the scale and not enough of a focus on health.

Losing it is great because Jillian takes a more holistic approach, she tries to unlock all the root emotional causes of depression and build up the self-esteem of those she works with. She also repairs the family dynamics and helps families come together to support each other and be stronger.

This show is all about improving physical and emotional health and I love how it spends adequate time on both of them because I really believe that emotional well-being and physical well-being a closely tied together and that it's hard to truly have one without the other.

Jillian also is a lot warmer, sure she still provides plenty of tough love and has no patience for BS but it really seems like she's got a deeper connection with these families.

I'm not sure how much of a role the $50k at the end plays in motivating the families to get into shape, but the transformations are inspirational and it also has a good positive message about dealing with psychological/emotional issues that TBL just kind of glosses over.

I have one question WHY? Why do people don't try to lose weight on their own and hope to get picked for a show. I guess their health is reallly not important if they are risking it all to be on a show.
