We thought Oprah Winfrey just had Weight Watchers to thank for her current weight-loss journey, but it turns out the former talk show host is also crediting a guy! The Big Guy, to be exact.
During the Super Soul Sessions on Saturday, the powerful personality opened up about her past problems with other diet and exercise regimens.
The 62-year-old explained that she used to focus too much on trying to look skinny, rather than feel healthy, saying:
“I wanted to be thin. I wasted so much energy, energy and time wanting my thighs to be thin, for my arms not to flap. I had the success and the money but I was still wanting something different than I had.”
The former journalist told the star-studded audience that she turned to food to deal with the stress of spending two decades hosting The Oprah Winfrey Show.
The gorgeous gal also admitted that she’d especially binge out on junk food while on vacation.
The lovely lady even confessed that she would constantly come up with excuses to skip working out, specifically once when she sprained her ankle in Maui, explaining:
“Jesus did not want me to workout, so I put my leg up and ate and drank all the vacation.”
But, Oprah finally felt better once she teamed up with Weight Watchers, saying she felt God was stepping in when the popular diet program reached out:
“It felt like an intervention from on high.”
When the company reached out to her, the wonderful woman thought:
“If they are calling me, I must need help!”
Well, whether it was divine intervention or just a corporation recognizing a good business opportunity, we’re just glad Oprah seems happy and healthy.
And that she can eat bread every day.
