Oprah has always shared her struggles with weight and in the magazine, the 62-year-old said she learned the key to not only losing weight, but living a better life is self-acceptance.

The fullness of life, the fullness of being, the self-acceptance, I’d never done that before, I’d always beaten myself up because I was tied to a number.”

She added that she no longer punishes herself or feels bad for indulging in guilty pleasures; she just doesn’t eat all of her favorite snacks at once.

Wise words we can definitely live by in the new year!
