Biggest Loser Winner Rachel Frederickson: Comments following my weight loss were hurtful | then and now beauty body image

A few months back, Biggest Loser winner Rachel Frederickson (24) received a lot of criticism from the media for losing ‘too much weight’ on and after the popular show – 155 pounds to be exact (see the post here!). Now, Rachel is back with a powerful message:

Comments during the controversial storm following my weight loss were hurtful. My self-esteem once again was affected by other people’s voices — this time, the kind that live forever in Facebook posts or written in the pages of magazines. People tried to bring me down and (privately) succeeded. To the voices of those who tried to lift me up after the finale, I thank you!

My question to you is this: What voices will you allow into your life to tell you who you are? Everyone’s voice is powerful. Is your voice going to be one that tears others down or one that lifts this world up with positivity, hope, and love?

Rachel these days, after gaining some weight after the show’s finale:

On how she got back in shape after giving birth 3 months ago:

“[Breastfeeding is] the best way to get back in shape. I do the whole bit. I’m nursing and I love it.”

On her workout routine:

“It’s just about trying to find time to go to the gym. I do the same fitness routine as my big muscle-man trainer. A lot of it is endurance, stability, and strength training. I like to work up a sweat. I’ve tried Pilates and yoga and all that, and I like to dabble in different things, but I always come back to a good old-fashioned athletic, full-body workout. Of course, like anyone, I have days when I don’t want to go. Those are the days when you should go because then you stick to it. Once I get into a routine of going to the gym every day when I’m working, it’s easy for me to just keep going. It makes me feel good. But once I start to slack, it’s so hard to go back.”

… says 30 year-old Scarlett.

Allison Williams Is ‘Naturally Skinny’

On the fact that she is naturally skinny:

“When I did the ‘Mad Men’ (music video in 2010), I was graduating from college — you’re college-weight. And so when we filmed the pilot for ‘Girls’ and even into that first season, I looked like someone I hadn’t looked like for four years. But that’s still the way it was set in people’s minds, so they’re like, ‘Oh, my God, you’ve lost weight.’ And I’m like, ‘This is just the way my body is very naturally.’ It’s a little bit stressful to know that there are a lot of people walking around who think I’m constantly just shaking and depriving myself.”
