Oprah Discusses Weight Gain

The subject of Oprah's weight has been a recurring one for years. She gains a few pounds and the tabloids are all over it, if she loses a few pounds they'll report on her supposed crash diet. The girl just can't win.

Oprah, who has been looking a little heavier lately, says she's fallen off the wagon and weighs 200lbs. She confessed she's gained 60 pounds in 2 years because of a thyroid problem that made her scared to work out.

In the January issue of O magazine, she writes, "I'm mad at myself. I'm embarrassed. I can't believe that after all these years, all the things I know how to do, I'm still talking about my weight. I look at my thinner self and think, 'How did I let this happen again?'"

We're used to Oprah always yo-yoing with her weight. One year she's skinny the next year she has a little more cushion. We love her regardless. But than again, how can anyone not love Oprah?
