Oprah has a new Weight Watchers commercial that is quickly becoming one of the most-watched YouTube commercials when one searches for Oprah and Weight Watchers on YouTube. In the emotional commercial, Oprah explains why she gave it one more time — the good old college try — when deciding to shape up and lose weight once more.
As reported by the Inquisitr, Weight Watchers’ new ‘SmartPoints‘ system is a blessing to some and a curse to others.
Published to YouTube on December 24, 2015, the video, titled “Oprah’s New Weight Watchers Journey” on the YouTube channel of Weight Watchers UK, describes how many people likely feel as though their weight is hiding the person they really are inside. The video shows a montage of Oprah over the years — minus Oprah dragging that big wagon of fat onto her stage like Winfrey famously did years ago after losing weight on a liquid protein diet. Instead, the video shows Oprah running and working out on a stair stepper, talking about the times she tried and failed to lose weight, but got right back on that weight-loss horse and tried once more.
With nearly 15,000 views on YouTube and counting, the Weight Watchers video is touching folks emotionally. It also comes at the perfect time — with 2015 nearly coming to a close and 2016 representing another New Year wherein people can seek to achieve their weight loss goals. Oprah is definitely giving the Internet “the feels” with her emotional new Weight Watchers commercial, because folks can relate to trying and failing but trying once more until they succeed at whatever their life’s goal might be. Whether it’s to lose weight solely or lose weight and accomplish plenty of other life goals, Oprah’s inspirational wisdom has returned to inspire others.
“We’re thrilled to count Oprah among our Weight Watchers family and are so excited to follow her journey!”
On the Weight Watchers page that features Oprah and asks people if they are ready to join Oprah, Winfrey discloses the moments that convinced Oprah to finally lose weight. Oprah spoke of going on another diet — this time, a diet that featured no sugar and no carbs. She’d convinced herself to give up that diet and eat whatever she wanted. But then Oprah realized that chowing down on French toast and syrup wasn’t what she wanted to really do. As such, the Weight Watchers eating lifestyle change clicked for Oprah, because she realized it wasn’t a diet — but a new way to eat and get rid of cravings.
“Was there one moment that triggered you to lose weight?”
“I was eating myself into a kind of oblivion. I was finding success on another – probably my 7000th – no-carb, no-sugar diet. And then I said to myself: ‘I should be able to eat whatever I want.’ But in between bites of coconut French toast with bourbon syrup, I thought: ‘Is this really what I want?’ I started to look for a middle ground, a space where I can live in contentment, in peace, in joy with food.”
“After you joined, when did you realise you could stick with it?”
“For me, that happened when the cravings stopped. But something else clicked: this isn’t a diet. And I’m not going to diet anymore because I’m ready to live – not just my best life, but what is the most extraordinary, fullest expression of my being.”
“When you doubt yourself, how do you change your mindset?”
“I use my Leader, Lisa, for support, suggestions and ideas. Every single Leader has found success with Weight Watchers – they know what it’s like to be overweight. It’s like having an army of experts ready to help you make smart choices.”
