“I’ve gone up about 20 pounds. I think I’m at my perfect weight!…I work out an hour, six days a week. I love classes like SoulCycle, I also loosely count calories, but sometimes I might eat an Oreo. It’s not the end of the world.”

“Biggest Loser” winner Rachel Frederickson talks about her 20-pound weight gain in the latest issue of US Weekly. This still seems to be a bit of a non-acknowledgement about finishing the season of the reality show at an alarmingly low weight (either on her part or the part of “The Biggest Loser’”s publicity team), but Frederickson does mention that the backlash over her weight loss was a “gift” because “it started a discussion about body image.” I can’t argue with that. And I have to support anyone who feels good about their body … and eats Oreos. [US Weekly]

I’m currently in the process of losing some weight. While the experience has been less life-changing than I expected, I’m proud of myself for eating healthier and exercising more often. I feel good. The one downside so far? I’m at the stage of weight loss where my clothes mostly still fit, but they all look kind of…weird. My jeans are now saggy in weird places. My blouses billow in the most unflattering way possible. My bras straps slip and provide no support. Every time I get dressed, I feel awkward and unattractive, and it has nothing to do with my body, just the way my current wardrobe fits my changing body. It’s clearly time for me to update my closet to reflect the new number on the scale. Here are a few tips for anyone else who’s struggling with shopping for clothes during a period of weight loss: Keep reading »

Mirror, Mirror: The Weight Loss Lies We Tell Ourselves

I blinked a couple times in disbelief, jiggling the sliding weight marker on the old school scale in the corner of the YMCA. An inch to the right or left, and it would clank down, but the weight it was balanced on couldn’t be right, could it? If I was doing the math correctly, I’d lost 13 pounds since the last time I weighed myself, two months ago.

I hadn’t been trying to lose weight, exactly. I had tried more consciously to lose a few pounds last year, getting up at 5:30 every morning to work out for an hour, but I hadn’t changed my diet much, so, to my disappointment and frustration, the scale never budged. A few months ago I decided to ditch the goal of weight loss and just start eating intuitively. I still exercised because it made me feel good, but I didn’t go crazy about it.

And now here I was, staring at proof that I was shedding pounds, and I wasn’t sure how to feel about it. I was surprised, happy, but more confused than anything: how could I have lost more than 10 pounds without really noticing? And why didn’t it feel like a more momentous occasion? Keep reading »

"Biggest Loser" Winner Rachel Frederickson Finally Admits That She Might Have Been "Too Enthusiastic"

“The Biggest Loser” winner Rachel Frederickson is finally ready to talk openly(ish) about her controversial 155-pound weight loss, revealed on the show’s season finale. In this week’s People, Frederickson admits that working out six hours a day in the three months before the finale might have been overkill. Ya think?!

In a video posted on their website, People’s Michelle Tan reports that she looked “much more healthy” a few days after the finale and that she “really was taking responsibility” for being “too enthusiastic” about her workouts. Reportedly, Frederickson was “really shocked and overwhelmed” by the negativity resulting from her weight loss and really wants to put a positive spin on it. Keep reading »

Bob Harper Explains His Reaction To “Biggest Loser” Winner Rachel Frederickson’s Controversial Weight Loss

“I was stunned. That would be the word. I mean, we’ve never had a contestant come in at 105 lbs…What people don’t understand is, when the contestants leave to go home … they’re in charge of themselves. So, I had not seen her until that night, and so when she walked out, I was just kind of like, whoa. And I’ve been on the show since the beginning, forever.”

Bob Harper kind of, sort of, not really admits that he found Rachel Frederickson’s weight loss a bit disconcerting on an upcoming episode of “The Rachael Ray Show.” Yeah, me too. [People]

Some Thoughts On “Biggest Loser” Winner Rachel Frederickson’s Major Weight Loss

Some-Thoughts-On-'Biggest-Loser'-Winner-Rachel-Fredrickson's-Major-Weight-Loss

This morning, a friend asked me what I thought about all “The Biggest Loser” finale drama. I hadn’t watched it yet, but I had a feeling.

“Can I guess?” I said. “Rachel lost too much weight, didn’t she?”

I was right. I didn’t want to spoil the outcome of finale as I’m an avid fan of the show, but I had to look at the pictures of Rachel Frederickson, who is now weighing in at 105 pounds after losing a whopping 155 pounds. People on social media and the blogosphere are freaking out about her weight loss — including Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper — a screenshot of their faces when she walked out on stage says it all. The girl lost 60 percent of her body weight, which can’t look any other way but shocking. Keep reading »
