It was last August when Oprah Winfrey first signed up for Weight Watchers, and two months after seeing results, she became part owner of the company as well as their latest spokesperson. Now, 26 pounds down and counting, Oprah is covering the April issue of O Magazine where she reveals her new look.
The fold-out cover features Winfrey sharing the spotlight with nine other woman, the first time Opes has ever shared the cover with readers who are all on the same journey and celebrating their “best body.” And they all look pretty freaking great.

“This month I join forces with a legion of women, all of us declaring a win-win for our bodies and ourselves,” Winfrey says within the issue. “Because I know this for sure: With age comes the understanding and appreciation of your most important asset, your health.”
She adds: “My own struggles with the scale are well-known. I’ve never believed in hiding them. What I do believe in: strength in numbers.”
O Magazine editor-in-chief Lucy Kaylin told Today, “Oprah absolutely feels that all the best things in life are shared. So this is really nothing new for her to want to get her arms around the experiences of other people.”
Winfrey’s weight struggles have been well-documented over the years but this time is clearly different. “Gone, for me, are the days of wanting to be thin to fit into anything other than my best body and best life,” Winfrey says. Keep on keepin’ on.
