In a recent interview, Oprah (who recently said that she reached 200 lbs) opened up (again) about her weight – here’s what she had to say:
It’s not about the food.Â It’s about using food â€“ abusing food. Too much work. Not enough play. Not enough time to come down. Not enough time to really relax.Â I am hungry for balance. I’m hungry to do something other than work.
I’ve been hiding my body because I didn’t want you to see it.Â Here I am, one of the most visible people in the world, trying not to be seen on the cover of my own magazine.
This is the year of hopefulness.Â My goal is to be the weight that my body can hold and be healthy and strong and fit and be itself. One of the things I had to learn to do is to embrace this body that I have and be grateful for what this body has given me.Â God blessed me and this body. I mean, I could weep right now thinking about the love and appreciation I have for this body. For that, I am truly grateful.
