Ever the perennial yoyo dieter, Oprah has sadly lost the battle with the bulge, tipping the scales at 200 lbs., 40 lbs heavier from her 160 lbs earlier this year.
“I’m embarrassed â€¦ 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?’ ”
The media mogul told the Associated Press before the launch of her January issue of O Magazine where she talks openly about her weight problem. Poor Oprah, with a thyroid problem and an compulsive eating disorder, she has confessed that of late, she has felt like “a fat cow”.
