Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels claims she was teased in her early years. She was overweight and had a big nose. The constant scrutiny led her to go under the knife.
“In eighth grade, I weighed 175 pounds and my nose was the size of a softball,” Michaels, 36, tells the new issue of Parade’s Healthy Style. “Once, I was sitting at lunch and got surrounded by a bunch of kids who let me have it about how ugly I was -— my unibrow, the size of my nose, the fat rolling over my jeans. It was pure hell. My mom had to pull me out and put me in another school.”
“I had my nose done,” she admits. “I felt much better about myself. Plastic surgery is a very personal decision.”
“I was a very anxious kid. I had night terrors. I couldn’t breathe,” she says. “I had a very strained relationship with my father, especially when my parents got divorced. I still try to go to therapy at least twice a week. It has given me the confidence to pursue the things I love, and it’s important that I don’t end up playing out my own pain and insecurities with the people I’m trying to help.”
“I’m hoping I’ll have the motherhood thing figured out within five years. I was an only child for a long time, and it was lonely, so I would like to have at least two kids,” Michaels says. “As long as children have love, that’s all that matters, but in an ideal scenario I’d want them to have a father.”
Sounds like Jillian has overcome a lot. I would have never guessed she had a nose job. It looks perfect.
She has helped many people on Biggest Loser, and she is continuing to make a difference in other people’s lives on her new show Losing It With Jillian, which premiered in June.
