Today I finally decided to catch up with the finale of the Biggest Loser, and boy was I totally shocked!! I’m all about getting healthy, losing weight, and all that jazz. But losing TOO much weight is not right, it’s unhealthy, and really what kind of a message is being sent to those kids out there that watch the show? And that idolizes some of these contestants? I was looking at the chatter on Twitter, and there was someone that said, Rachel is her idol, I thought OMG seriously, last week’s episode maybe but not today, I’m sorry this is my opinion but she lost way too much weight.
Before she always spoke about being an athlete and all, but now she doesn’t look like an athlete, I hate to say this but it’s my honest opinion, she looks anorexic, and it’s harsh I know. It’s horrible, but she went overboard, look at the reactions of the coaches.
I think that says it all. It’s just way too extreme. NBC should have known teens will be watching this, thinking it’s okay to lose too much weight. I’m still in shock. She was doing great, I knew she would be the winner, but I didn’t expect to see what I saw. I hope this isn’t going to be a problem for her in the long run. I hope she puts a little weight back on. Like in this photo, she looked healthy.
But I suppose she wanted to lose more. Could she swim and be able to stay competitive at her current weight? I don’t think so, she has no muscle on her body. Compare the above photo with the one below.
I’m sorry if people are going to hate my post, but I wanted to just express how I feel. I am on a diet myself, and I am only 5’1, I could probably be okay at 105, but she is taller than I am, not to mention younger, to be at 105, in my opinion, is just too excessive. I wish the best for her though.
Even though there are people out there that say posting something like this doesn’t help, well it does, it helps people know it’s not okay. People will write how they feel, just because some say it doesn’t help anything, well if so many people feel the same way how is it not helping? Are we supposed to shut up and not say anything? It’s my opinion, and I will express it.
