When Oprah Winfrey teamed up with Weight Watchers last year, we knew she was going to take her goals seriously. She believed in the program so much that she bought 10 percent of the company for $43.2 million and now we are amazed at how much it's paying off. Oprah is giving us all the hope and motivation we need to start the New Year by revealing that she lost over 40 pounds on Weight Watchers and not once felt like she couldn't eat what she loved.
"I've eaten everything I love, tacos, pasta, I've never felt deprived," she says in the video above. In the two new advertisements released by the company, Oprah speaks out about finding a balance between living her life and eating the foods she enjoys — and that no one should have to pick one or the other.
It's the first time Oprah's spoken about exactly how much weight she's lost, but now, she's boasting the big number with a huge smile on her face (and with a glass of wine in hand). Check out the second video below, where Oprah talks about indulging in her favorite treats and being incredibly happy with her success.
"Like everybody, I want to live a life that's full," she explains. "Full of the happiness found in living the life I want. Full of the energy that comes with good health. Full of the great foods I love, and at Weight Watchers I don't have to choose between weight loss and living well. I live well while losing weight . . . Most important, it works!"
Oprah has never been shy about her weight-loss journey and her struggle with fluctuating, but we are so happy to see that she's found a regimen she's so passionate about and one that works so well. "I can honestly tell you, I struggle no more," she said.
