Oprah Winfrey opened up about her struggle with weight loss in an interview with The New York Times Magazine on the 2nd of August, 2017. As CI readers know, “body-shaming” is the new human rights movement, kind of like the transgender movement.
In the interview, she said, “for your heart to pump, pump, pump, pump, it needs the least amount of weight possible to do that. So all of the people who are saying, ‘Oh, I need to accept myself as I am’ — 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.”
The representative for Weight Watchers, who lost over 40 pounds since joining the company in 2015, clarified her statements by promoting her healthy lifestyle.
She claimed, “This whole P.C. about accepting yourself as you are — you should, 100 percent. It’s a mechanism to keep myself on the track that brings a level of consciousness and awareness to my eating. It actually is, for me, mindful eating, because the points are so ingrained now.”
According to the media conglomerate owner, things have changed a lot in the recent past.
People are encouraged to accept themselves, which is great.
However, on one hand, self-improvement is a great thing as well.
The talk-show host explained, “Yesterday, I was in the gym working on my triceps and I was thinking, just as I did the 50-pound pull down. I am going to be in better shape by the end of the year than I’ve ever been in my life. I just really smiled at the notion. Wow, what a thing.”
