Dear Jillian Michaels

Dear Jillian,
I received your 30 Day Shred workout video for Christmas and first of all let me say thank you for not yelling and cussing at me like you do to your Biggest Loser contestants. I am on about Day 20 or so (I lost count because I had a concussion, the stomach flu, and one day I just chose chocolate fondue over you) and yesterday I decided to try Level 3. I am unhappy to report that after finishing that particular 20 minute work out I was dry heaving, seeing stars, crying, and about to recieve another concussion from passing out. While I want to thank you for making my work out worth it, I would like to ask you to re-do the DVD with the following changes:

Please put a disclaimer at the beginning of both Level 2 and Level 3 stating that just because you have mastered the previous level does not mean that you will not die at the end of the succeeding level.

Please stop using the phrase, "Do NOT phone this in." I don't really know what that means and it's dangerous to hear you say that when I am dripping sweat in the middle of minute 12 while doing a squat and holding my weights. I have almost thrown my weights at the television upon hearing that phrase come out of your mouth for the 15th time.

Please include a bottle of painkillers with the purchase of the Shred. I have been sore every single day that I have done the work out.

Finally, thank you for making me a believer in short work-outs and starting me on my journey back to my pre-baby body.

Your Truly,
Out of shape mom of 2
