Ridiculous. What kind of woman are you, Jillian? How can you forgo being a biological mother for the sake of keeping yourself svelte?

Jillian Michaels is known for kicking contestants butts’ into shape as a trainer on The Biggest Loser, — but I want to kick her butt after hearing her selfish reason for not having kids!

“I’m going to adopt. I can’t handle doing that to my body,” the 36-year-old personal trainer says in the May issue of Women’s Health magazine. “Also, when you rescue something, it’s like rescuing a part of yourself.”

Now we here at HollywoodLife.com are all for adopting, but choosing adoption over natural birth solely to keep your body in tip-top shape is a little ridiculous. Sure, it’s hard work to get your body back post pregnancy (even Kendra Wilkinson is having trouble!) — but the happiness of having your own little bundle of joy should outweigh the fear of putting on a few pounds. Maybe she’s freaked out about the idea because she admitted to having weighed 175 lbs. when she was twelve years old.

But Jillian, just look at Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Alba and Gisele Bundchen — they all gave birth and look FABULOUS. It might take a lot of exercising, but isn’t that what you do for a living? You should have that part down pat! We’re also wondering, with all you’ve got going on, like your new show on NBC, Losing It with Jillian and hopes to host your own talk show, are you too busy to have a baby?

People!!! It’s a personal choice. What you do to your body is a personal choice. I don’t believe that she’s being selfish. Many women get pregnant for the sake of being pregant…let me see how about that Octomom? Does that mean that Octomom is unselfish?

LOL We live in a world that teaches us to obsess about our bodies and try to achieve unreal body types b/c of photo shop. So I think its hilarious that people think this woman is ridiculous…she’s obviously values all the hard work she’s put into her life and doesn’t want to ruin it. Respect that choice b/c its her choice. Having kids is a HUGE sacrifice in many areas and I think thats a choice only the person doing it can make. MIL everywhere fail to get this concept and put pressure on daughters to have kids and thats NOT COOL.

It’s selfish because of her REASON. It’s not like she said, “I want to adopt because there are so many children out there who need a good home.” She basically said she doesn’t want to be pregnant because of how it may affect her body. That’s really selfish. And it doesn’t speak highly of Jillian in general. Who cares if your body changes during pregnancy – it’s supposed to. And many women look absolutely beautiful during pregnancy. She is a trainer. If anyone can whip their body into shape following a baby, it should be Jillian. I guess she doesn’t think that much of herself.

word. and, for everyone acting like we’re immoral for discussing her reproduction choices, please- she put this out there voluntarily in a magazine article. most of us wouldn’t have given two cents to know what she was going to do vis a vis children- but when she put such a foolish statement out, it’s begging for commentary. as moralitypolice said- of course nobody has an issue with her adopting, it’s the foolish REASON she gave for adopting! i would question her parenting abilities, frankly, with her self-centered point of view. most of us naturally put ourselves second to our child, healthy or not, you can’t help it- you just do. she doesn’t seem to have one ounce of this maternal instinct if her comment says anything about her. even the adoption part! it’s all about how the adoption will make HER feel good. this woman has issues and hopefully she’d hire a damn good nanny if she did adopt b/c she is not going to put her child first. that said, i shouldn’t be so negative b/c when you actually do have/adopt a kid, at that moment everything in life changes for you. hopefully that would be true for jillian, too, and she’d stop looking at everything only in the way it affects her.

I don’t think she sounds selfish at all. I think if she would rather adopt, well that’s her choice, for whatever reason she wants it to be. Besides there should be more adoption out there so no child gets left behind. Maybe she should adopt 3 kids. I mean it’s her reason, who cares why. If she doesn’t want to ruin her body, then she doesn’t have to. I understand the whole reason your saying she’s selfish, but I don’t think she really is. Some people never get their body back after pregnancy. So, I think her choice is fine.

You are the ridiculous ones for asking this question……pregnancy is something serious for your body…some woman even die, or developed conditions after that. My mom had to get surgery 10 years after give birth, for a condition she had on her womb because of my brothers bith…..EVERY WOMAN EVERY BODY IS DIFERENT…..AND THAT IS A CHOICE…AT LEAST SHES NOT SAYING IM GOING TO HAVE AN ABORTION….AT LEAST SHE IS RESPONSIBLE…AND KNOW WHAT SHE WANTS… AND HAVE A PLAN FOR THAT…AND ADOPTION IS SOMETHING PRECIOUS THAT EVERY PERSON SHOULD CONSIDER…IN THE WORLD EVERYDAY A CHILD IS REMOVE FROM HIS HOME, BECAUSE AN IRRESPONSIBLE PARENT, OR DONT EVEN HAVE ONE….BE RESPONSIBLE AND CONSIDER WRITE THINGS MORE MATURE…THINGS THAT HELP PEOPLE HELP OTHER INSTEAD OF CRITIZES THE WAYS OF LIVING THEIR LIFE.

this woman is not avoiding pregnancy for reasons like your mom’s. she’s avoiding it b/c she doesn’t want to get fat. there is a big difference. and, as we’ve all said, it is laudible to adopt, but her reasons are suspect and make us question her ability to parent. lastly, i guess HL sort of asked the question, but it was jillian that through this out there voluntarily in a magazine article. HL is just asking us what we think about what she said.

How does adopting instead of giving birth make her selfish?? We need more foster parents in this world, and becoming a foster parent is one of the kindest things a human being can do for an orphaned child. This article is ridiculous!

…might I also add that women are entitled to control over their own reproductive choices. It is really NONE OF OUR BUSINESS why she doesn’t want to have kids. For all we know, she isn’t talking about body image at all but, rather, the 9-month pregnancy process!

lol! she’s the one putting it out there in our face in a magazine article! nobody pried “her business” out of her! also, i’d bet money that woman is NOT going to become a foster parent. foster parenting and adoption are two WAY different things, even though one can lead to the other. i agree, more foster parents are needed… i just don’t think jillian deserves accolades for it when she hasn’t done it. frankly, i’d be surprised if she even adopted at all b/c she seems totally too self-absorbed to put herself and her workout routine second to a child.

Suprchica,I so agree with you SHE’S A LESSIE.Which by the way is her life and her business.It’s true having a chid can change your body and loosing the weight can be challenging.I gained alot of weight while pregnant with my two kids.But I can honestly tell you they were worth every single pound and every single strech mark.

I think most likely her reason is that she doesn’t necessarily want to have sex with a man to make the baby…I’ll bet big $$$ she’ll come out of the closet very soon. Just sayin’…

i don’t know anything about her sexuality, though her femininity is for sure lacking. in any case, she doesn’t have to have sex with a man to have a baby!

in reality, with the population crisis in this world, most of us should be adopting instead of having our own kids. it’s selfish, having kids, but i did it anyway. she sounds completely ridiculous if that’s her reason for not having kids (she names it first, and the “good” reason second, as an afterthought). that said, trying to be a nicer person in life, i have known people with body and eating issues that literally could not mentally handle losing control of their figure and calories for one day, much less the time it takes to properly nourish a fetus/baby. but, long story short, she sounds foolish. maybe it’s a defense mechanism b/c she’s getting older and she hasn’t found anybody that wants to have a child with her- so she’s pretending it’s her choice? (i have no idea if she’s married and/or with anybody that would co-parent with her.)
