EXCLUSIVE! Latest 'Biggest Loser' Castoff On Her War With Trainer Jillian Michaels: “She Insulted My Family!”


When people push you, do you push back or break down? Latest Loser Migdalia Sebren chose option #1 — which led to some pretty heavy on-screen catfights!

After nine seasons of The Biggest Loser, trainer Jillian Michaels, 35, has become notorious for kicking her contestants into shape by beating them down emotionally. But there’s one contestant who didn’t accept Jillian’s harsh practices and tells us she’s seeing results by doing things her way, thank you very much.

“What Jillian wanted me to do was cry and tell her why I was [obese],” Migdalia Sebren — a 28-year-old homemaker from Sanford, NC — explained exclusively to HollywoodLife.com. “She insulted my family and it was just the wrong way [to deal with me]. I’m really close to my family.”

Instead of breaking down, Migdalia now fits in work-outs on the treadmill when her kids are at school or sleeping, and has started to let go of the “little things” in day-to-day life. “I was a bit of a control freak when it came to dealing with things [with my family],” she told us.

Even though she defied the trainer extrordinaire’s wishes, Migdalia has done pretty darn well with her own methods, dropping nearly 60 of her 265 pounds since starting her weight loss journey last summer. “I’m pretty motivated and I just want to live life,” the mom of two said. “I have a plan for every day.”

When you’re losing weight, does having someone scream at you get you the results you want? We’d love to see if you think Jillian’s methods are effective — or too extreme.

I’m glad that Migdalia has lost more weight, but instead of turning around and biting the hand that fed her, she should have listened to what Jillian was trying to tell her. I have never seen two women SO angry, SO bitter and trying SO hard to swallow that anger. How many times did you hear “don’t cry” or “stop crying”? How many times did you see them standing there, arms crossed looking enraged?

Migdalia, your weight will always be an issue unless you learn to deal with your feelings, because clearly, you are literally eating them. I feel sorry for you that you are so bitter that you had to speak out against Jillian. You need serious help and counselling. I certainly hope you don’t tell your kids not to cry. If you do, then Jillian will be right.

UGH!!! I can’t stand Migdalia, or her mom, Miggy, either! Jillian knows what she is doing, and she gets results. Holding in all your emotions is so dangerous, and saying things are fine when you are clearly upset just creates tension. Even at the elimination, Miggy was telling her not to cry. Not only does she not see a problem with that, but she is going to pass it on to her children. I feel sorry for her kids, and it wouldn’t surprise me if she passed all her bad traits, practices, and problems on to them- just like Jillian predicted! Newsflash, Migdalia: Jillian didn’t insult your family; she was trying to help, and because you turned her down, you won’t benefit from her priceless aid. Have fun holding in all your feelings and being overweight the rest of your life!!

Yeah she is a jerk for calling Jillian out. Some people just don’t like to hear the truth. Plus I noticed a lot of these weight loss contestants are really really emotional. You don’t get that fat over-night. They over ate for a reason.

Jillian Michaels is awesome. Migdalia is a sore loser. She went on a competitive reality show, and when the going got tough she quit. Then she starts throwing hissy fits, crying sour grapes and using her family as an excuse. No one put a gun to her head to get on a fierce reality show. “Doing things her way”? Whatever. What an insult. If it wasn’t for the kick start Jillian and the show gave her she’d still be a beached whale. She’s an ungrateful twit sucking up a few more seconds fame. She can lose all the weight she wants, she’s still gonna be a big-fat whiner,
