Television hosting career aside, Oprah Winfrey is one of the most inspirational figures in Hollywood because of her life story. The famous television host suffered severe trauma in her childhood but managed to persevere regardless, becoming the first female billionaire in the entertainment business.
But despite all the fame and fortune, the talk show host has expressed her dissatisfaction with her appearance on many occasions. Winfrey has opened up about her struggles with weight in several interviews and how her weight loss journey has been anything but smooth sailing.
But by being so open about the setbacks she has faced with her health, Oprah has gained even more respect and love from female fans who can relate to her struggles and commend her for being so brave and honest about her journey.
But after years of struggling with poor body image, Oprah is finally in a place where she feels confident and happy in her skin. She owes this to her love for Weight Watchers, a famous weight loss app that helps people become more mindful about their diet and develop a healthy relationship with food.
And while she has been able to become more healthy by fixing her diet, the talk show host still struggles with working out. In fact, she has publically professed her hatred for exercise on multiple occasions.
In '80s, when she first started her now-famous show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, the host received a lot of criticism for her weight. But Oprah has never been the one to sugar-coat her life on television.
In 1988, she underwent a massive transformation, losing 67 pounds through a liquid diet and grueling cardio sessions. But her happiness was short-lived because as soon as she went back to her old diet, she almost instantly gained the weight back. In fact, she put on even more weight post-diet, reaching her all-time heaviest at 237 pounds.
In 2005, Oprah finally kicked the dieting mentality and started changing her eating habits in a realistic manner. She started eating right and made a goal to get in her daily 10,000 steps but her weight gain continued due to underlying health conditions.
Years later, she founded the Weight Watchers program, which allows people to focus on being healthy instead of obsessing over being skinny. But even now, Oprah is not a fan of exercise, but she does it anyway because of its health benefits.
