Weight Watchers recently released a moving video from Oprah Winfrey about her weight loss journey. We’ve watched her personal struggles and victories with weight loss over the years and now she’s on the Weight Watchers points program. Some people have been very moved by the video… even to tears. I would love to know what you think.
“We had our first meeting in August and they said, ‘We would like you to come onboard our program and do what you do: self-empowerment, self-enrichment. We think that you can bring another level to us for Weight Watchers.’ I said, ‘I can’t do it unless I actually go with the program. First of all, I’ve never endorsed anything. I’ve never been a spokesperson for anybody. So, I will have to do the program myself to see if I actually like those points, because I’ve been resistant to points.'”
Winfrey explained that in the early ’70s she never went to a Weight Watchers meeting, but added that she “might have signed up” for the program and not followed through with it. Back then, she recalled being opposed to the company’s point system. But in July, Winfrey said, “‘Let me try it and see if I like it.’ As of today, since Aug. 12, I have lost 15 pounds. But I am excited about Weight Watchers being able to bring a healthier more holistic approach for everybody.”
