Oprah Winfrey has lost almost 45 lbs in weight since she joined Weight Watchers in 2015, and she feels “great” because of her smaller size.
Oprah Winfrey has lost almost 45 lbs in weight.
The 63-year-old television personality is feeling “great” after shedding approximately three stone from her body mass after she signed up to be a member and advisor for the American weight loss programme Weight Watchers in 2015, and she has claimed her dieting has become a total “lifestyle change” over the past two years.
Speaking about her new shape in the April issue of O, The Oprah Magazine, the former ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ host said: “Nearing the 45-pound weight loss mark is a great feeling.
“After spending literally years on more diets than I care to count, I finally made the shift from dieting to a lifestyle change.”
And the star has revealed her eating regime has made her “more conscious” about her food intake.
She explained: “Everyone is different, but for me what’s worked is Weight Watchers. Today I’m more conscious about what I eat, balancing indulgent things with healthier options.
“I leave the table feeling satisfied – and to me, that’s far more important than any number on the scale.”
The Mississippi-born star – who reportedly weighed 238 lbs when she was at her peak – decided to embark on a healthier way of life because she felt frustrated by her constant “lose-and-gain-again routine”.
Speaking previously about her partnership with the healthy-eating and welfare brand, she said: “The folks at Weight Watchers called me in July and asked if I’d join their team – help spread the message about taking a holistic approach to health and fitness.
“For me, this was a perfect alignment. I was fed up with my lose-and-gain-again routine. I’d had enough of no-carb regimens. Some people can live without bread and pasta, but it just doesn’t make sense to me.”
