After the announcement of her return to the Biggest Loser season 14, we were so excited to have a chance to chat with our September cover model Jillian Michaels in a live Twitterview on Tuesday, September 11, 2012. Not only did the mother-of-two answer our questions about returning to the show, her personal diet, and balancing it all, she answered readers' questions live, sharing her tips for losing weight, getting in shape, and more. In case you weren’t able to get in on the conversation, check out her answers in the complete transcript here!

@Shape_Magazine: Build a support system w/ like-minded ppl. Go to a fitness class, join a running group or online community etc. #AskJillian
@JillianMichaels: If you could point your finger at one thing, what’s the top reason you see diets fail? #AskJillian
@Shape_Magazine: Lack of knowledge. People buy into fad diets and don't want to do the work. #AskJillian
@JillianMichaels: What can we do to combat this common pitfall? #AskJillian
@Shape_Magazine: EDUCATE YOURSELF!!!  You have to count calories and eat clean.  Common sense. #AskJillian
