We think the perfect person to help this angst-ridden reader is Jillian Michaels. Not only does she regularly whip softies into shape on NBCs The Biggest Loser, shes also author of the new book Winning by Losing and a black belt in Akarui-Do (a hybrid of kung fu and Thai boxing). So we asked Jillianthats her in the photosto come up with a confidence-inspiring workout. And she has definitely delivered, with moves that will strengthen your muscles and your self-confidence.
