I believe she looks at her normal body weight at which she should had been from get go. I feel the people that are hating on her are having weight issues themselves and instead of congratulating her they are downing her for doing what she came of the show to do, which was to loose the weight. I proud of her for her efforts--she put her mind and body to it and succeeded. Girl don't listen to the negative that you here, keep your head held high and walk proud. You overcame your weight and knock it out of the ballpark...........
Even though she lost a lot of weight Rachel know has an advantage on trying to find the middle weight. I use to weigh that much but I can honestly say I found the right weight for me. Biggest Loser did not send the wrong message at all instead it sent the right one in my opinion because of the fact Rachel can gain a few pounds to her liking and not be over weight.
I've watched every season of BL and this was the first one that made me feel uncomfortable & sad. BL needs to put a bmi restriction on these folks.. This sent a terrible message.. :-(
