”Embarrassed” Oprah Winfreys article reveals she weighs 200 poundsDecember 10th, 2008 - 12:57 pm ICT by ANI
New York, December 10 (ANI): American talk show queen Oprah Winfrey apparently believes in being straightforward when it comes to talking about her weight, for she has revealed in an article that she currently weighs 200 pounds.
She also writes that she has fallen off the wagon when it comes to healthy living.
The article, released by Winfreys Harpo Productions, appears in the January issue of O magazine.
“I”m mad at myself,” the New York Daily News quoted her as having written in the article..
“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?”” she wrote.
The write-up details Winfreys recent struggles with an out-of-balance thyroid, and how the condition made her develop “a fear of working out”.
It reveals that the 54-year-old talk show host has gained 40 pounds since she weighted 160 pounds in 2006.
“Yes, you”re adding correctly; that means the dreaded 2-0-0. I was so frustrated I started eating whatever I wanted - and that’’s never good,” Winfrey writes.
The piece also suggests that Winfrey no longer wants to be thin, and that she instead wishes to be strong healthy and fit.
Winfrey seemed to sound almost apologetic in her article, as she wrote: “I definitely wasn”t setting an example. I was talking the talk, but I wasn”t walking the walk. And that was very disappointing to me.” (ANI)
