In the latest edition of her magazine, O, Oprah Winfrey admits to stacking on the pounds. We were just pretendin we hadn’t noticed, cause we are not bitchy at all.
Oprah says that she has gained 40 pounds over the past two years, making her 200 ounds “or the dreaded 2-0-0” as she describes it. She says she feels like a fat cow.
Oprah’s height is 5 ft 6 in so according to the BMI calculator quoted by the Associated Press, Oprah Winfrey – when combining how tall Oprah Winfrey is and her admission of weighing in at 200 pounds – has a body mass index of 31.8. This means she isn’t fat cow she’s a… wait for it….. Obese Cow.
Ouch. Those BMI things are harsh.
“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?'”
Oprah says being with Cher in Vegas made her feel the worst about herself. We say cheer up Madam O, Cher is lighter because she is almost solely made of plastic.
Oprah Winfrey hopes to get started with her “Best Life Week” special on her show in early January, concentrating on health, strength, and fitness rather than just being thin.
So Oprah set herself up as an expert on weight loss, pushing her superior way of life with an army of experts. Will her fans care? Probably not, I am guessing most of them are in the same predicament.
