Rachel Frederickson raised eyebrows when she returned for "The Biggest Loser" finale in early February appearing very thin for the final weigh-in. She has admitted that perhaps she was "too enthusiastic" in her training once the show wrapped filming, but Wednesday (Feb. 26) on "Today," Frederickson says her weight loss was healthy.

"It was absolutely healthy weight loss. I dieted, exercised and did it healthy the whole way," says Frederickson. "I appreciate all the concern, and I can see where it comes from -- there is the movie magic, it's over seven months, almost a year of my life, losing the weight."

"I'm the healthiest, most alive I've ever felt," she adds. "I'm in the maintenance mode, which is just as hard as losing the weight. ... I think what I've learned is that I have an inner strength, I have a voice and I can trust myself."
