OPERATION Transformation’s leader made a big splash tonight as she’s lost an incredible 11lbs in her first week.
The original Tipperary girl has struggled to find her way on the show and feels that she may not be doing enough to hit her 2lbs goal.
However, she blew it out of the water but experts advise her against continuing to lose that much each week as it is unsustainable.
When asked how Sarah felt she did in the first week before seeing her results, she said: “I don’t know. I don’t feel like I’ve lost any weight.”
However, fitness guru Karl Henry has told how she has improved and Sarah even broke her step record on the show.
“There are two things I want to consider during your wellness check,” he said. The first is your step count.
“This is arguably the highest number of steps I’ve seen for any leader of any week in a Transformation Campaign ever. Over 30,000 steps into one of the days.
“This you’ve wrapped up. You’re a perfectionist. You put that into the Old Testament plan.
“Your goal is to lose 2 lbs. You’ve lost 11 lbs in seven days.
“It’s a really big number. It’s made up of a lot of things.
“There’s absolutely fat there, there’s absolutely a bit of muscle there, there’s loads of fluid there, there’s digestive changes, all that.
“But we need to moderate the activity, we really need to bring it down a bit.”
Sarah’s weight loss goal for the next week is 2lbs.
Lecturer, presenter Kathryn Thomas has gone missing from tonight’s episode after testing positive for Covid.
However, Ray D’Arcy was there for the frontrunners at the weights.
The RTE star recently told what it’s like “very odd” to replace Kathryn about Switching Activity.
He said on RTE Radio 1: “I had the weirdest weekend ever because I found myself in a place called Crossrae outside of Mullagh in Co Cavan.
“The reason I was there was that Kathryn Thomas wasn’t available to do what she had to do on Saturday because of some Covid situation.
“I had to step into something very odd.
“I have been following Operation Transformation for many years and have been a radio partner for many years.
“And then you find yourself standing in the same place in the studio, where Kathryn is normal and always has been and no one else has ever been there and suddenly you’re there.
“So it was pretty bizarre. There was Karl and Aoife and Sumi and Eddie and then we met all the leaders – Sarah, Katie, Kathleen, Stefano and John.”
