Natalie vows to do better next time after her 'scattered' week

Leader Natalie Cox has vowed to become more organised in her bid to shed weight on Operation Transformation.

The 24-year-old Dubliner, who started out at 16st 5.5lbs, enjoyed a successful week on the show, but has revealed she's determined that next week she'll be more organised -- after a number of hiccups throughout the week.

Mum-of-one Natalie from Dolphin's Barn shed an impressive 7lb this week but is determined to keep focused for next week.

Natalie admits she became flustered when her internet crashed and she was faced with the challenge of grocery shopping without Dr Eva Orsmond's dedicated healthy food list.

The leader also enlisted the help of her partner of seven years, Michael, who was given the task of deciding what food was needed for the fridge.

"Even though it was good, this week was scattered ... it was an uncomfortable week. So next week when I do better and manage everything in a better way and everything is a full package, then I'll be excited," stressed the leader.

Expected to lose 4lbs this week on the popular programme hosted by Kathryn Thomas, the blonde scored above her target, losing 7lbs in total.

Nutritionist Dr Eva Orsmond told the Herald that one of the main reasons behind Natalie's weight problem is due to her lack of organisation.

"It's tough to have everything in check, especially when you're a mother and this is definitely one of the reasons Natalie is carrying extra weight.

"She has a great support system at home, but she needs to get equipped herself -- at the end of the day it's your own body.

"She needs to realise she has to be more organised. But I do think she did extremely well regardless. I have a special soft spot for Natalie -- she's incredibly sweet," the expert revealed.

Mum-of-one Natalie's goal is to shed a massive 1st 10lbs overall and she has dreams to be fit and healthy for Michael and four-year-old son Josh.
