Jilian Michaels Anti-Pregnancy comment

i didnt hear it but i read about it on yahoo news. when asked about her plans for children she said, "I'm going to adopt. I can't handle doing that to my body,"

i think adopting is great but anything pregnacy does, other than streach marks, is totally fixable! and i would think a personal trainer would know that...

it might have taken me 10 months but i got back to my pre-preg. weight and i actually think im more toned now than i was back then. before i was just skinny from living on a diet of black coffee and ciggarettes, now i eat right and work my muscles.

i just found her comment odd.

That does seem to be a little odd but when reading an article about it, I see that she does have some issues with weight gain. I think we all bring some baggage from our childhood into our adult life. I appreciate her reasons for adoption too.

Her response on Facebook: " I NEVER said I was anti pregnancy or that pregnancy ruins a body. I said that "I can't put my body through it". There are emotional issues and physical LIMITATIONS that have resulted in that conclusion - some I have discussed publicly and some I haven't."
(I'm a fan).

Its her body and her choice. Pregnancy can be hard a body. One of the reasons we're stopping at 3 kids is because I don't want to put my body through it again.

I did see that. The article I saw it in says she has a lot of psycholigical issues with weight so I can see how that would make her want to avoid a pregnancy. Her comment probably could have been phrased better though...

I feel sorry for Jilian Michaels.
