CelebNHealth247.com reports that 65-year-old Oprah Winfrey decided to do something about her weight after being told she was at risk of developing diabetes.
If you recall, Oprah Winfrey lost a whopping 42 lbs through Weight Watchers four years ago after she learned that she was at risk of developing diabetes.
In a letter to WW members which was shared to People magazine for Global Wellness Day Opah wrote:
I haven’t shared with many, but I will share with you, that I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes before WW. My blood pressure “is now stabilized and in a healthy range,” and said her blood sugar levels are also ”back to normal too.”
Oprah praised WW with having “changed [her] life.”
Alongside the weight loss, she has achieved four years since becoming a shareholder in the company, she’s also regained her health.
O continued to say:
Beyond the weight, WW has helped me make healthier choices and understand the real numbers that matter most.
Meanwhile, Oprah previously admitted she ”can’t accept” herself when she’s over 200 lbs.
I can’t accept myself if I’m over 200 pounds, because it’s too much work on my heart. It causes high blood pressure for me. It puts me at risk for diabetes because I have diabetes in my family.
In 2017, She said:
For your heart to pump, pump, pump, pump, it needs the least amount of weight possible to do that.
If you suffer from diabetes, order Protandim, it will help you with diabetes. We have plenty of friends who have taken it and their diabetes is no longer.
