I felt like I would never be comfortable with my body again
“Hello! My name is Tiffany. I am 30 years old, and a mother of two. After two very difficult and high risk pregnancies (the majority of them spent on bed rest), I was frustrated with my weight. I was not obese, but I was overweight, and did not feel good about my appearance. I grew up as a swimmer, and played water polo in high school. I have always had physically challenging jobs in the past which helped keep me fit, and I LOVE to be active, so not being able to exercise during my pregnancies was awful. I gained well over 50 pounds with each pregnancy. When I got pregnant with my second baby, I still had not lost 20 of the pounds I gained with my first. My second baby was 9 lbs 11 ounces at birth, and I had to have a c-section. The c-section caused me to lose a lot of strength in my stomach muscles. My tummy felt very stretched out, and I felt like I would never be comfortable with my body again.
“When my second baby was about 5 months old, I discovered Oxycise. I went to the website, read the testimonials, and read the history of how Jill came up with the system. The whole thing just made sense to me, and I was eager to give it a shot. I’m so glad I did. I went from a U.S. size 14 jeans, to a size 10 and lost 23 pounds within a few months time. I now am wearing a size 8, and have a goal of a healthy size 6. I feel great, and every time I Oxycise I feel so much energy afterwards, and it immediately boosts my mood. My skin feels firmer, my cellulite has faded, and my tummy muscles are stronger than they were before my c-section. I am so grateful for this system. Yoga is great for your body, and I think of this program as yoga with a twist, because adding the unique oxycise breathing technique, along with the positions is such a huge fat burner, and works way faster than anything else I have ever tried. Thank you so much Jill, Aubrey, and the rest of the Oxycise! team. I am a huge believer in this system, it is tried and true in my book, and I recommend it to all my friends when they ask me, ‘What have you been doing?’
“The first photo is me right before my c-section with my 9 lbs 11 ounce son, who is now almost 2. The second photo was taken a few days ago. I know the before photo is crazy, but I wanted to show others who are having body issues after pregnancy, that you can go from feeling totally hopeless, to having the results you want, and loving your body again.”
Nothing I’ve ever done got rid of the cellulite until Oxycise! came around!
“I was introduced to Oxycise! by my mother-in-law, as my husband’s Aunt Jean is the older lady on the video tape. I was very skeptical until I watched the tape and realized what Jill was saying is true.
“I started doing Oxycise! in January and in two months lost 36 lbs. I notice my energy level going up, lower back strengthen, my outlook on life better and all the cellulite I had on my thighs and butt is gone! Nothing I’ve ever done got rid of the cellulite until Oxycise! came around!
“I also have 4 young kids and I don’t take I time to spend on exercise and with Oxycise! I can take 15 min out of my day. I will never go back to exercise again. Oxycise! will always be a big part of my life. I have gone from a size 18 down to a size 12.
“Thanks to Jill and Oxycise!”
Lynnda was later featured in the First for Women magazine:
Lynnda had banned full-length mirrors from her home, so the sight of her body in a photo was a shock. “I didn’t even recognize myself,” Lynnda recalls. “I thought, There’s no way I’m that fat, but pictures don’t lie. I knew then that I had to change.”
So she bought an Oxycise video. “My first impression was that it could never work. The people in the video weren’t even sweating.” But she fave the program a try and felt a difference immediately. “I realized how shallow of a breather I was.”
Lynnda Oxycised six days a week, and in five months she lost 68 pounds, 31 inches, and three pant sizes! “I have tons of energy now,” she says. “I even sleep better!”
I was feeling hopeless that I could ever feel good about my body again
“Thank you so much for the gift of Oxycise!
“I want to tell you about my results. I have worked really hard and have lost a lot of weight in the past few years, but I have been feeling really downhearted about my body, because no matter how well I ate, or how many vitamins I took, or how much I exercised, my skin was so loose, and my body shape just wasn’t satisfactory.
“I am 45, and so the signs of aging combined with a large weight loss had left my body looking old, my skin really loose and without much tone. It was depressing to have finally lost so much weight, and yet to feel so bad about my body still. It was very depressing! I was feeling pretty hopeless that I could ever feel good about my body again…which is not the way one wants to feel after working so hard to lose weight! I had 20 more pounds I wanted to lose, but didn’t even want to do it, because I knew it meant I would feel worse about my body than I did before!
“I started doing Oxycise!, and even doing it only once a day, and not all that wholeheartedly and not all that often, I began to notice my body starting to firm up in some of the really loose areas. Then, I visited your website and got totally inspired. I read every single success story and decided to really go ‘all the way’ with Oxycise! Just two weeks ago, I began doing O twice a day, Level 1 in the morning and Level 2 after work. I also began to REALLY do the basic breath, I mean really doing it with gusto, and giving it all I’ve got.
“What has happened in the last two weeks has been nothing short of astounding. My skin is firming up and getting toned and tightened. I cannot believe how rosy my complexion is, and how much my body is toning and tightening and firming up! I have lost about 5 more pounds, and have gone down 2 pants sizes in 2 weeks, just from my body tightening up so much. My cellulite is going away! This is cellulite I’ve had for over 20 years, that NOTHING would touch! And now it is just melting off me! My skin isn’t drooping anymore! The bags under my eyes have gone away, and I swear that even some wrinkles I was getting on my face are disappearing. The whites of my eyes are so much whiter. My body is getting re-proportioned. I am watching it change shape before my eyes on a daily basis…I can’t believe it!
“I also sleep better, have less stress and anxiety, am much happier all day, have a huge increase in endurance, have no more headaches, and have been able to go off some medications I was taking…I don’t need them anymore! I also notice that when I go fitness walking, I have absolutely no stiffness like I used to, and I can walk much farther with no exertion at all. My fitness level is definitely far above what it was before, even when I was doing hours of step aerobics and other kinds of exercise. Now, all I do is Oxycise!, twice a day, and some walking, and I am in 1000% better shape than I was when doing all those other forms of exercise that took so much more time to do!
“To say that I am sold on Oxycise! is the understatement of the millennium. I can’t tell you how happy I feel to finally know I have a tool to change my body and make it more youthful and beautiful and healthy, especially as I age. It truly is astounding the changes in my body over the past few weeks. I am so excited to see more changes that I know are on the way. It feels so good to know that I can finally have a toned body that I can feel good about, even at my age, and after having lost so much weight.
“Jill, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for sharing your discovery with us. I will always be eternally grateful to you!”
The cellulite on the back of my upper legs and butt is greatly diminished
Diane emailed about why she loves Oxycise!
“1. The cellulite on the back of my upper legs and butt is greatly diminished. I don’t know of any other program that is capable of getting these results.
2. My calves and forearms feel really taut, as compared to feeling mushy. (It’s hard to tone these areas).
3. Oxycise! seems to cut my appetite and I don’t crave for junk food.
4. The flexibility that I get from this program is far greater than I have ever experienced with any other type of stretching or yoga.
5. I have a very busy lifestyle, and spend a lot of time in my car. This was the reason I bought the program in the first place. When I am really stressed out, I do the basic breath between getting from Point A to Point B and it calms me right down, plus I am getting all the benefits associated with increased Oxygen intake.
6. When I am really crunched for time, I can at least do 15 minutes of Oxycise! in the morning and feel like I haven’t missed my daily exercise.
7. My inner abdominal muscles feel very tight, a sensation that I couldn’t get from doing regular ab exercises which work the outer muscles.”
I haven’t worn a size 8 since before I was married!
“A few years ago, I tried a different breathing/exercise video program, with little success. About two months ago, I pulled my videos out again in hopes that perhaps ‘this time’ things would be different. Maybe I needed to do something differently to get different results. I decided to surf the Internet to learn more about how oxygen affects weight loss. That’s when I came across your website!
“After spending about 2-1/2 hours at your website, learning about how Oxycise! works, reading some of the testimonials, reading Jill’s story and seeing Jill’s before and after photos (I want to look like that!), the seed was planted to try Oxycise!
“The next day, I wrote an e-mail message to Oxycise! to ask more about the program and was pleasantly surprised to see a response within less than 24 hours from Nancy and Julie–“real people” who sounded very down-to-earth! I think that’s what finally sold me on ordering the Oxycise! program–the great service and the caring responses I received.
“I ordered the Oxycise! Level One and Level Two videos, the audio tape and the Oxycise! book near the end of May. They were in my mailbox by May 31st and I started the program on June 1st. (Ironically, it was June 1st, 1983, when I met my husband for the first time! I was a size 5-7 then and very happy with my weight and appearance.)
“I usually do either Oxycise! video at least once a day, sometimes both, and at least six days a week, alternating each video for variety. (I haven’t used the other program since starting Oxycise!) When I’m driving in the car 15 minutes or more, I do the Oxycise! audio tape. When I started the Oxycise! program, I marked my measurements in red marker on one of the measuring tapes provided so I could clearly see my progress.
“As of July 1st, (one month later), I had lost over 5 inches in total (I have been measuring myself in six areas), with the majority in my waist and my arms. It’s wonderful to see the new marker line moving away from the old measurement–in the right direction! My hips and thighs have been more stubborn with very minimal inch loss. However, my cellulite in these two areas has noticeably improved. My legs look more toned and they are starting to show better definition–I’m on my way, anyway.
“I have not lost any weight yet, in fact I have gained two pounds, but I recognize that I have been eating more calories than usual and, as confirmed by Julie at Oxycise!, muscle weighs more than fat. My abdomen, especially my waist, is much more toned and looks flatter than it has in some time–my husband has also commented that he’s noticed a difference.
“The best part is that I went to the store to buy a pair of shorts and I have lost one size! I even tried on a different pair of shorts in size 10 to make sure it wasn’t just a different fit. I can’t tell you how thrilled I was! I have been wearing a size 12 for the last two years and this is the first time I was able to wear a size 10 in probably ten years! (The clothes that I am wearing now are probably going to soon need to be taken in or replaced. Darn, I hate to shop–just kidding!!)
“When I came back to work from the store, beaming after buying my new shorts, I told some of my co-workers and they wanted to know what I was doing! I explained the Oxycise! program and demonstrated the Basic Breath. I told them how easy it is and how little time it takes to do each day. They were asking how to visit your website. One of my co-workers explained the concept to her aerobics instructor who believes it makes sense as she uses deep breathing for healing.
“Another benefit has been the increased energy level. When I feel really tired at the end of the day, I do one of the Oxycise! videos and feel energized and ready to go again!
“Over the years I have tried many other programs with very little long-term success, some with no success–if I lost weight, it came back with a few extra pounds. In fact, when I told one of my sisters that I was starting Oxycise! she said, ‘It’s just another flavour of the month. You’ve tried the Jane Fonda workout, aerobics, the stepper, Body Flex, etc., and now this. Well, let me know if it works.’ Well, IT DOES! I am amazed at how simple it really is and how little effort and time it takes. It’s hard to believe something this easy works! This is something I KNOW I can stick with!
“I only did the other breathing program when no one was around because of the strange breathing technique and facial expressions needed to do it as it is taught–I found it was just too embarrassing to do in front of or within earshot of others. With Oxycise! I don’t feel embarrassed or self-conscious, I ‘just do it!’ Jill is down to earth and explains everything so well and the other participants on the videos are easy to relate to.
“One of the things I have found that keeps me so motivated is to read the testimonials on your website. Everyone’s success level is different but encouraging. I have spent more time at your website visiting each section, enjoying all I have read. Your website is wonderful and very well organized! I also enjoy receiving your OxyChat! newsletter. It’s nice to keep in touch with you! It’s also neat to read the e-mails sent in to the OxyCenter with questions/answers, and words of encouragement.
“It’s exciting to be doing something that offers so much hope to shed these unwanted pounds I have carried around for years. I want to feel really good again about how I look and enjoy shopping again for new clothes and not feel embarrassed to try on or wear a bathing suit. I know in another month that I will have lost more inches and hopefully some weight, and if not, then I know it WILL happen in time! I want to look the way I did when I first met my husband, and I believe I will. Regardless, I feel more energized and encouraged than I have in years!
“Thank you, Jill, for making your program available to the public. I will continue to tell others about Oxycise! and look forward to more successes. Meantime, I will continue to ‘keep on breathin’!’
Susan’s Update from the Message Board (Including Congratulations and Comments from Jill)
“This is THE BEST program!!!!”
“Well, Oxycise! has done it again for me!!! Today, I went to the store to buy myself some new jeans since all my other jeans are too big now, and lo and behold, I’ve dropped another size. I actually got to buy a Size 8 pair of jeans–I haven’t worn a size 8 since before I was married! That’s two sizes I’ve lost in just 2-1/2 months! I swear I was almost touching the ceiling when I left the store!
THANK YOU, JILL!!!!!!! YOU’RE AWESOME!!! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
Comments From Jill Johnson
Isn’t it fun??? I remember the first time I fit in a size 12. I tried on several 14’s and they were too big, so I started looking at the size 12 rack.
I kept thinking the the sales clerks were staring at me thinking, “What is that fat girl think she’s doing trying to fit in a size 12.”
I took 2 or 3 pairs of jeans into the dressing room, and they fit! I didn’t trust the size yet, so I literally tried on 25 pairs of jeans in size 12 before I admitted to myself that I was actually that size. It was amazing to me.
Keep on breathin’
Subject: Thank you, Jill!
“Yes, it was amazing to me, too (and fun!) I had to tell the clerk why I was so excited about trying on jeans!!! I told her all about Oxycise! and what a FANTASTIC program it is! I tried on a couple of size 10s before I realized it wasn’t the make, it was ME! I had SHRUNK!!! I couldn’t believe I was actually going back to the racks for the smallest size they sold! I still have more inches to lose and toning to do, but I’m still on a cloud thinking about it!
“If I can do this program, ANYONE CAN!!!
“Thank you again, Jill!!! (Can’t thank you enough!!!)”
Already we are both experiencing benefits, some of which we did not expect!
“My 15-year-old daughter and I have been ‘Oxycising’ together for only a month, but already we are both experiencing benefits, some of which we did not expect!
“And because of my own knee and lower back limitations, we have been using the ‘Easy Does It’ videos, too!
“My daughter was already within a fairly healthy weight for her age and height, but Oxycise! has trimmed and toned her arms, legs and hips to the extent that she has noticed a pleasing difference in how she looks and feels. And others have even commented about her ‘narrowing’ hips!
“BOTH of us are excited about the DISAPPEARING CELLULITE!”
Be consistent, be patient, and you will see results
“I have been doing Oxycise! since the end of January this year, and did it faithfully 5 times per week until mid-May (at which point I fell off the wagon). I started consistently again November 1st. When I started with Oxycise!, the measurable results were very, very slow, yet I felt that I was making progress, as my legs were looking much smoother and the cellulite was definitely going away. I think it took until the beginning of March to see measurable results. But when I did, the results were dramatic, as though it all melted off in one day. I don’t know how that works, but the lesson to me was to be consistent, be patient, and you will see results…Be patient, and don’t give up, the program works.”
In 1 month, my daughter has lost 9 inches and I have lost 7!!
“My 14 year old daughter and I have been doing Oxycise! now for about a month. At first I, too, was obsessed with the scale. But I know from belonging to a health club for a few months last winter that muscle weighs more than fat. I also know that teenagers are constantly growing taller and will fluctuate in weight often. So I have encouraged them to measure instead of always going by the scale.
“In 1 month, my daughter has lost 9 inches and I have lost 7!! Even though she would like to weigh less, I tell her that in time, the numbers will go down and to concentrate on her successful inch loss!
“This is a workout we can do together and it is not strenuous. I have both Level 1 and 2. I like Level 2 better for the constant work on the legs. I have toned up a lot of cellulite and my daughter’s is virtually gone! We have more energy and I feel much better and more dedicated to this than I ever was at the gym! I have now given a friend my videos to see if she likes them. I know she will. She has twin 3-year-olds to chase around and doesn’t have time to do a long workout, so this is perfect for her too.
“Thank you for this fabulous program! It will become part of my everyday routine for a lifetime!”
The cellulite on my thighs disappeared (YEAH!!)
“I’ve been doing Oxycise for about 6 weeks. At the start I measured chest 48″; waist 46″ stomach 48″; hips 48″; thighs 22″. I now measure chest 43; waist 43″; stomach 43″‘ hips 43″; thighs 19 3/4″. The cellulite on my thighs disappeared (YEAH!!) I haven’t lost a pound, an ounce – is this normal????? To me it seems strange to lose all these inches and not any weight.”
No more shopping at Lane Bryant, their smallest size is too big for me, yipee!
“Oxycise! is a God-send. Finally I’m losing weight without much effort I might add, feeling great and looking pretty good too. I started the program mid Feb. (my 46th bday), lost inches after the 1st week and continued loosing every week. After the 7th week, I was so excited it was working, I went on a Low fat, no junk (or should I say, very limited junk) diet and the inches and weight really started coming off. I exercise 15 min. daily and add in 50 extra breaths. To date (6/24) I’ve lost 18 lbs., I’m down 2 (almost 3) jean sizes (1x to 16, I can just get into. size 14). More wonderful, is the toning of my body, the cellulite is disappearing, my heart palpatations have subsided and my skin looks healthier. No more shopping at Lane Bryant, their smallest size is too big for me, yipee! It feels sooooo good to shop in regular stores. Thanks Jill. Great web site too, keep up the good work. I wish I had a tee shirt saying ‘I’ve gone down 3 jean sizes, ask me about breathing with Oxycise!’…”
I can’t believe how I seem to be melting away!
“I found O! through QVC. Then I found this site. I ordered Jill’s book (and the commuter routine) and found it extremely helpful. I worked through the book at the pace Jill laid out (a few new positions each week) and was much more comfortable with everything! I have been O!ing since about March 8th (videos alone) and added the book info near the end of March.
“I’ve lost at least 8 pounds and my pants are so baggy it’s funny! I’m down 1 1/2 sizes (meaning the waist and hips are down about 2 sizes, but my baby belly is stubborn!). I can’t believe how I seem to be melting away! Like wax off a candle! I don’t measure and I don’t own a scale, so I don’t track my results that way. I go by how my clothes fit and how I look (cellulite loss is a big plus).
“Guess to sum up, I recommend picking up the book. And really concentrate on getting the breath right and the positions. You will love how it feels and remember: the weight and inches didn’t show up overnight! Slow and steady and consistent is the key!!!!”
Other Message Room comments from Danielle:
“… I didn’t believe it could work and I’m still amazed what it does!! I was at a point of what to do. I was so discouraged with how I looked and felt just 2 months ago! But I thought, ‘If I can’t commit to 15 minutes a day, I’m not ever going to be able to commit to anything!’
“That’s the beauty of it! And while I’ve not had a huge loss, I am consistently changing. The cellulite loss is amazing! Moon is a good word for what my behind looked like 2 months ago (craters and all!) and it is getting so smooth!! Of course the rest of the world doesn’t see that, but it is amazing how good it makes me feel! Really try following the book steps and don’t worry about trying to learn the basic breath all at once. You will see a difference!”
All the cellulite I had on my thighs is smoothing out and becoming toned
“I bought your program about a month ago, and just let me say, it’s absolutely wonderful! I do it faithfully every day and my energy levels have skyrocketed. The energy I get from doing Oxycise! lasts all day long, not just for a couple of hours. In the three weeks I’ve been doing the program I have seen such amazing results. All the cellulite I had on my thighs is smoothing out and becoming toned. The pouch in my stomach from having a baby is starting to go away. I love your program and I know this is something I can do for the rest of my life. I’ve said goodbye to the endless diets I’ve been on and working out at a gym. Thank you for giving me my life back. You are a godsend.”
Beth A. Wagner
(Beth’s second letter)
“I’ve written to you before to tell you how much Oxycise! has changed my life. But I just want to let you know that I recently purchased a Richard Simmons heart monitor watch, and wore it yesterday during my Oxycise! workout. And my heart rate went up to 145 during the workout. (my resting heart rate is 95.) I now know that I am truly getting an aerobic workout as well as burning fat. I didn’t realize my heart rate went up that much while doing Oxycise! I now know that I’m in my target heart range and getting a great workout without sweating.
Who would have ever thought that just by breathing I could get rid of the cellulite on my thighs
“I’ve been using the Oxycise! program for a total of 6 weeks and I have seen a big difference in the cellulite on my thighs. It’s absolutely unbelievable. Who would have ever thought that just by breathing I could get rid of the cellulite on my thighs that jogging 3 miles couldn’t do. This doesn’t even include the tremendous amount of energy, overall feeling of well being and great looking skin that I now have as well!!
“I’m very excited because I’ll be attending my 10 year class reunion in October and I’m well ahead of schedule.
“Well as I used to say in junior high school , Oxycise is tubular!!!!!!”
It’s been an emotional roller coaster until I found your program.
“I am a professional, single woman who does not have a lot of time for exercising. Plus, it’s not like I’m very out of shape or overweight. Some people look at me and say, ‘You are so small, what do you have to worry about?’ But, with my age and height (5′ ½”) I have to to work on keeping in shape. Almost everyone I know does. Your program has still made a difference for me. My energy level has greatly increased since I’ve started your program, plus my abs are really starting to tone up through your breathing technique. It’s great!
“As I wrote to you a couple of weeks ago, I’m 34 and in fairly good shape with about 10 pounds to lose. I was using ‘the other’ breathing program with no real results. But, after starting your program and getting your level two and the books, I’m starting to see a difference in my clothing and flexibility. I used to teach in a health club and work in diet centers- I understand the ups and downs of weight gain and loss. It’s very frustrating. Personally, I have all the equipment, ‘fat loss’ pills, and exercise tapes to prove my quest for remaining trim. The $$ I’ve spent on this quest to be thin is unbelievable! It’s been an emotional roller coaster until I found your program.
“Since I have started your program, I have bought your product and sent it to people as gifts. I have loaned my videos out to friends and family. Keep up the great job! In a nut shell, Oxycise! has done the following for me: increased my energy level and flexibility, my cellulite is improving, my abs are tighter, and my waist is smaller. And, I’ve only just begun!! Thanks so much, Jill!”
Oxycise! has changed my life!!
“I saw you on QVC and thought — what the heck — who doesn’t have 15 minutes and the cost was nominal.
“Well, Oxycise! has changed my life!!
“My daughter was getting married and although I had over 18 months to lose the 50 pounds I was still overweight. I used pills (I hate to admit it Phen-Phen) and lost nothing but my short term memory. I bought over the counter diet drugs to help me, I went on low fat/high carbos; whatever — nothing helped. I tried on dresses (it was a black tie affair) and nothing in size 16 fit. I was ‘freaking out!’
“I got your program about 4 weeks before March 19th. I started on February 17th. I went to try on dresses again on February 18th and found one I liked. It was a little tight. By the wedding, I was down to a size 14 (I just turned 51 and that’s not easy to achieve) and the dress fit perfectly. I no longer hate to go try on clothes. Everyone at work as well as my husband and my family say I am starting to look like my old self.
“I exercise every morning. I feel better, have more energy and I look so much better! I have lost 3 inches from each thigh! My arms are finally getting firmer! My waist and back are firming up and the cellulite on my thighs is fading…
“Thanks Jill! You have made me feel good about myself again.”
I can say without reservation – IT DOES WORK!
“After doing ‘O’ consistently for over a month now, I can say without reservation – IT DOES WORK! … ‘O’ has been something we have been able to stick with. I am down about 13 lbs and she [my wife] is down about 8 lbs, but the really impressive part is how we look and feel. She has probably shown even more progress than I have. Cellulite is literally gone, saddle bags are dwindling, tummy is flattening. I’m excited for her! Me, well, I have changed two holes in my belt, but the greater change has been in my blood pressure. I went to the doctor last week and she was amazed. She decreased my medication by half for one month and said if it continues the same way, I can discontinue after another month or so. Before I started my medication, my pressure was about 165/95. Not extremely high, but last night it was 112/64 and it has been as low as 98/60. In addition my heart rate has dropped from an average of 90/100 down to a resting rate of about 64! That’s impressive!”
“I wish to thank Jill for sharing her knowledge with us and let the rest of you know that the support you provide to each other is something to be cherished.”
My cellulite is disappearing
I am loving my results with oxycise. The biggest benefit I have found is my mood has improved greatly. I was pretty depressed before I joined the Oxycise community on Facebook. Also, my cellulite is disappearing and my menopause belly is going down. I am so motivated!
