Late last year Oprah Winfrey went public about her 40-pound weight gain, saying she was embarrassed and angry at herself about it. After spending so much energy finding ways to hide or camouflage her curvy figure, Winfrey says she’s done with excuses. The 54-year-old media mogul promises to set aside time in her overwhelmingly busy schedule for her health, which will include exercise, according to MSNBC.com.
“This is the year of hopefulness. My goal is to be the weight that my body can hold and be healthy and strong and fit and be itself,” she says.
