Oprah Unveils 20kg Weight Loss After Giving Up One Thing!

If you’re an Oprah Winfrey fan, and even if you’re not, you’ll be aware of her painful battle with her weight over the years.

A yo-yo dieter, she would slim right down, before binging and putting the weight almost straight back on.

She decided to make a change for the better in 2015, joining Weight Watchers and paying $43 million to become a partial owner of the company.

The best part is, she’s stuck to it - losing a whopping 20kg in that time!


Speaking in the new issue of the magazine, Oprah puts her success down to one major change she made - ditching the scales and the ‘magic number’.

“At 200 lbs [90kgs], I was OK. I have never, ever, ever been at that point. And then at 190 lbs [86kgs], I was OK. If I don’t lose another pound right now, I’m still OK,” she said.

“The fullness of life, the fullness of being, the self-acceptance — I’d never done that before. I’d always beaten myself up because I was tied to a number.”

Historically a goal-based dieter, pushing herself to reach a ‘magic number’ on the scales, Winfrey said that taking a more holistic approach had benefited her.

“Now, I don’t have a goal in mind. I get to a certain weight and I’m OK, and say, ‘This is where I want to be. Hang in there. I’ll get there when I get there.’ And my body will tell me when I am exactly where I need to be.”

GO OPRAH, you good thing!!
