LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Jillian Michaels knows all about being a “loser.”

Michaels whips fatties into shape as a trainer on The Biggest Loser, and on her new show, Losing It With Jillian Michaels, premiering June 1 on NBC, she travels across America moving in with families who need a serious makeover.

She cleans out their fridge, pushes them with hardcore workouts, and helps turn their unhealthy lives around.

Though she’s all muscle now, Michaels understands the flabby folks she helps because she’s a former fat kid herself.

At age 13, Michaels was three inches shorter and 60 pounds heavier than she is now.

She recalls, “I got my heaviest after my parents divorced. I didn’t have friends. I was a loser kid. My mom got me into martial arts, and that’s where I learned fitness as a means to transform your life.”

Because she can truly empathize, Michaels has found herself crying nonstop while filming Losing It.
