Weekly posting #3. CoachMeFit follows Shellay’s progress as a contestant on the “Biggest Loser.”

“Biggest Loser” airs Tuesday’s at 8:00pm on NBC.

“Amy and I made up a name for Derek, our CoachMeFit trainer … ‘Stroke’ … because he’s silent but deadly. He earned that name last week by coaching us through one of the toughest and best workouts I’ve had. He has a calm, quiet way of getting me to work harder than I ever imagined.” Shellay explained that exercise is a greater challenge for her than dieting, but she has found the one-on-one time with a trainer is the incentive she needs.

Workouts with Jillian were quite different, as viewers witnessed in last week’s program when her “boot camp” style brought Shellay to tears. After it aired, her friends called to console her. But Shellay believes there’s a positive side to facing the tough talk. It helps her confront the life-long issues that keep her from succeeding.

As a “Biggest Loser” celebrity, Shellay has become a role model for people who’ve struggled to lose weight. “People email me for advice and tell me I’m an inspiration.” Shellay has been asked to speak to different groups about her experience. Yet with all the evidence that she has made a dramatic life change, Shellay can hardly believe what she sees in the mirror. “That can’t be me. I still see myself as fat.”
