Oprah: The Elephant in the Room

By Tuesday, December 9, 2008 2 No tags Permalink 0

Ok so we all knew this was coming. I was talking about this a few months ago when I was watching an episode of Oprah and was like “damn she’s a fatty again.” And yes I can say fatty cause I’ve been there to. Oprah’s bootay was blocking Beyonce when she was on the show. I was like WOW!

So of course Oprah is ready to talk about the weight gain in the Jan. issue of O magazine.

Oprah Winfrey is declaring, “I’m mad at myself” because she’s “fallen off the wagon.”
“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?’ ”

Now Oprah needs to be honest with herself. She know that she’s been eatting Krispy Kream, chips, ice cream, pizza, and all those things us dieters are suppose to stay away from. I know I’ve gained like 2-3lbs over the holidays but that is to be expected with all the free flowing drinks and food. So just like the rest of us, Oprah is going to have to work out more and put the chips down. But I can’t help but think she does this every so often cause she know it will sell magazines, and increase ratings.

    oprah is beyond worrying about ratings or magazines sales. the simple reason she's gained weight is, she's just like us: strong & disciplined at times, and at others, not so much. i think it's great that she demonstrates the stages of denial & acceptance at failing to maintain something that we all do. i look forward to her helping herself (and the rest of us) get back to our ideal lifestyle or quality of life, whatever that may be.

    Naw, it is that she hasn't been as disciplined as usual. I notice that whenever they have food and alcohol on the show she is shoving stuff in her mouth rather than just tasting like she does when she is skinny. Also, Oprah is over 50 now and it is hard to maintain weight loss after a lifetime of bad habits. I think she has been drinking more and that definitely packs the pounds on. Plus, she has been grieving over her dogs and that triggers emotional eating. She'll get it together. She still looks good and as long as she is healthy I wish her all the best.
