Online. I'm not sure if it's in stores, but I paid $7.95 with no shipping costs online.

Where can you get the Jillian Michaels workout DVD? The cold weather has me stuck inside and very bored of my stairstepper.

It is a high intensity work out combining the cardio, strength training and abs and I've found it to be very effective. I like to exercise outdoors as well, but fighting off neighborhood dogs in the TX heat had me looking for other options. I have run, walked and cycled outdoors for years and actually prefer this DVD as I really feel the impact. I just moved from the beginner level to the intermediate level two days ago and already feel the impact. The DVD is cheap too! Bonus!

I am new to your forum and a newly diagnosed diabetic. Of course the standard is I need to lose a few pounds. I have started to walk the tredmill in increments of 10 min. several times a day due to back problems, hip and knee problems. Knees have been replaced and hip surgery is coming soon. Back has had 4 surgeries and rods and pins from T10 down to L3. Neurosurgeon says no exercise, endo says exercise. So I am doing the best I think I can by breaking it up into small stints of 10 min several times a day. I am still trying to get my body regulated to the insulin Lantus 30 units at night. I have found that when I do exercise my BG gets very low. Other times it is still fairly high. Haven't gone on a fast acting insulin yet. It has only been a month since diagnosis. Any suggestions as to what you all do after exercise would be appreciated.

Okay all.. this last Monday I joined a gym. Worked out for the first time in years.. OMG! Things hurt that I didn't know I had. LOL. I am about to go again. Wish me luck.

I have worked out my entire life, ran a marathon and am getting ready to cycle for the MS 150 from Houston to Austin, TX. I just bought the Jillian Michaels (Biggest Loser trainer) DVD and it's awesome. She doesn't scream and yell and she has three levels of 20 minute workouts that mix cardio, strength training and Abs. I've done it each workday for 1 week and can already see the toning happening. You're supposed to be able to "Lose up to 20 pounds in 30 days!" :) Good luck to you!

I need some support to keep moving. I have walked off quite a bit of weight and now need some more motivation.. so help is more than welcome.

Hi all! Here for moral support - both receiving and giving. I controlled my type 2 for 20 years after my last pregnancy with diet and exercise, maintaining an 80 lb weight loss for 5 years until a stressful job and a water leak in my house helped me eat my way into sorrow and comfort, gaining it all back again. After turning 40, and having high bp and heart disease, I'm on Byetta and Metformin, and trying desperately to stop the damage I've left go on for the past 10 years. Here's to a realistic New Year's resolution of trying to be good!
