It's no secret Oprah Winfrey has struggled with her weight for many years.
Time and time again, we've heard stories of Oprah's tales of woe when it comes to her fluctuating weight, especially over the last few years. From fad diets to intense workout routines, it seems like O has earnestly tried everything only to end up in failure.

Speaking on her low point and the flack she has received from fans over the years, Winfrey confessed:
"None of those people had stood in their closets with three different sizes to try on on the floor, where the waistline didn't fit and the arms didn't fit, and the hips didn't fit, and you can't get it zipped, and felt that shame and that humiliation of 'Wow, I can't believe I'm in this position again.'"
Aw, how heartbreaking. We can't imagine the shame and humiliation O.W. must have felt as not only a public person but as a motivational speaker.
Luckily for the talk show host, she was able to find redemption in Weight Watchers. The spokesperson complimented the program's focus on community and supportive members as for why she was finally able to get back on track.
"We're smart people who have done a lot of good things in our lives, and then there's this one thing, this one flaw, that we have that everyone can see. So if you're an alcoholic you can hide that, or you're a drug addict you can hide that, if you're a gambler you can hide that, if you're a shopping addict you can hide that, if you work too much you can hide that. But if you overeat, it's hard to hide that. The fact that you have the courage to come together in a community to give voice to it, and speak to the universe, I think that's brave and powerful and I think that's why Weight Watchers works."
How wonderful! We're glad the mogul has found her happy place!
The inspirational gal added:
"Every other time I've ever gone on a diet, I've gone on a diet and then gone off the diet, because I had gotten to the weight I'd wanted to be. The difference is, I've made the shift and this is the way I'm going to live for the rest of my life."
We really hope this time the businesswoman's motivation sticks!
