How Oprah Winfrey Lost 42 Lbs

Oprah Winfrey is our inspiration once again. The famous TV host has lost 42 pounds and her biggest secret is positive thinking.

Oprah joined the Weight Watchers program a year and a half ago and never looked back. The trick? She’s not thinking about the number on the scale anymore.

She said her mind needed some shifting: “For the longest time, I was afraid of a potato chip. Now I deny myself nothing. I just don’t give myself everything at the same time.”

She continued her story: “Before, when I was 150 pounds, I’d imagine getting up to 200 lbs., and think, ‘Oh my God.’ But now I think, ‘I never thought that at 200 lbs. I could look in the mirror and love my body, love myself, not chide and minimize myself for being 200 lbs.’ At 200 lbs., I was OK. I have never, ever, ever been at that point. And then at 190 lbs., I was OK. If I don’t lose another pound right now, I’m still OK”.

Oprah reminds us of the things in life that truly matter: “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.”
