Where’s The Buzz : Oprah’s Weight Battle

December 13th, 2008 by


Oprah Winfrey  
Talk show diva & world’s most powerful celebrity Oprah Winfrey spilled the beans on her “embarrassing” weight gain. Due to her thyroid problem her weight went from 160 pounds a couple of years ago to 200 pounds today.

Winfrey says :

I’m mad at myself, I’m embarrassed. I can’t believe that after all these years, I’m still talking about my weight.”

During her upcoming “Oprah’s Best Life Week” show Oprah plans to talk about how to get back on track to lose weight in 2009.

However some of our observations here :

  • As we people make our New Year’s resolutions , fitness searches surge. Here is Google Trends for ‘diets’.
  • Not all that we wish – we can achieve. For example : losing weight remains one of the toughest goal to achieve.

Call it her publicity stunt or another “oversharing” -Yahoo buzzlog reports surges in “Oprah Weight” look ups. May be all she needs , adding up this years one of the most wanted product -“wii fit” – into her holiday shopping list.

All the best Oprah !
