Oprah Packs On The Pounds

According to Livesteez, it looks like Oprah’s declaring yet another war on blubber:

Oprah Winfrey confesses that she now weighs 200 pounds and has “fallen off the wagon, in the January’s O magazine. “I’m mad at myself,” writes Winfrey, 54. “I’m embarrassed. I can’t believe that after all these years, all the things I know how to do, I’m still talking about my weight. I look at my thinner self and think, ‘How did I let this happen again?'”

Winfrey, 54, says she has struggled with an out-of-balance thyroid and the condition made her develop “a fear of working out.” The “queen of daytime talk” confessed that she’s packed on 40 pounds since she weighed 160 pounds in 2006, according to The Associated Press. “Yes, you’re adding correctly; that means the dreaded 2-0-0,” Winfrey says. “I was so frustrated I started eating whatever I wanted – and that’s never good.”

She says she hit rock bottom earlier this year when she wanted to skip an April 26 taping with Cher and Tina Turner in Las Vegas because she felt like “a fat cow.”I wanted to disappear,” says Winfrey, who has famously yo-yoed over the years, once weighing as many as 237 pounds. She goes on to say that her goal now isn’t to be thin; she just wants to be healthy. So she is launching the “Best Life Week,” beginning Jan. 5 on her talk show.

Winfrey’s weight and height put her body mass index at 31.8, which is obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the AP reports. “I definitely wasn’t setting an example,” Winfrey writes in her article. “I was talking the talk, but I wasn’t walking the walk. And that was very disappointing to me.”

What does she expect? A Billi buys a whole hell of a lot of cheeseburgers. Perhaps its time for the talk show Queen to consider more a more serious approach….

    Mrs. Obama better watch out pretzels vs. a hungry chic never had a chance. Pack on them pounds ms. lady, get them titties heafty, and more booty meat with the crease underneath, It’s show time and Oprah is gonna show us how to get it done. Nothing wrong with that. That’s what the older Black women are with no diabeties.


    She said before she likes carbs. I believe it.

    There’s no connection to being obese and healthy at the same time, especially when age is a factor. It put’s you at risk for issues liek hypertension, diabetes, heart disease etc.

    We can’t all be slim, but we can all be mindfull of the BS that passes our lips. McDonalds should be a “once-in-while” treat not a staple.

    So many people in my family that have passed on, might still be here today if they made better dietary decisions.

    I wonder if she feels like she has “man hands.” I would be embarrassed to have those.

    But when you have money, things like that doesn’t matter…lucky bastard.

    People kill me acting like everyone has to be a certain weight. Oprah was insecure whether she was 200lbs or 160lbs. Just get healthy and doesnt mean being 150. All these guys out here that look like houses and Oprah’s calling herself a cow while they’re order their cheese steaks right now.
