Her life is challenging, her decisions are unpredictable, her shows are featured by a beautiful smile and cheerful mood as she isn’t shy because of the weight.
What was the initial situation?
When back to her youth, she could have boasted with only 10 size of jeans from Calvin Klein she was wearing that time. Curvy hair but slim figure attracted movie makers, so she was gaining popularity with “Oprah Winfrey Show”.
Some years later in 1992 she weighed 237 pounds or 107,5 kg after innumerous diets she sit on, as her own words prove: “I’ll never be on a diet again”. That time she met a man, who changed her life completely – no, not a spouse, a personal trainer Bob Greene, who became the man supporter.
He also created The Best Life Diet which helped not only Oprah, but many other women all over the world.

Let us see what was next.
In 1995-1996 she was often caught running together or without Bob, who considered the work-out to be the most important aspect of keeping fit. There were no diets at all, just the food rehab, which included the special regime of taking food, liquids and especially bread, which the actress adores much.
In 2002 Oprah impressed the fans much with the fascinating appearance, demonstrated in a tight dress on the 54th Annual Emmy Ceremony. She told in one of the interviews that now she feels perfectly, without any concerns to health and stuff. Her mood also improved much because of comfortable she experiences, while being among other celebrities.
How were the things lately?
In 2004 her weight was 160 pounds or 73 kg. The actress told there were no commitments to health and look, as everything was under control. The camera loved her also as the personal show continued and she also presented herself in the role of producer.
The year 2005 was challenging, as she participated in “Desperate Housewives”, making a character of her own as the neighbor. The marvelous look she had also on the 77th Academy Award Ceremony.
And soon after, due to some emotional stress and medical issues, in 2007, Oprah began to gain weight, which quickly reached up to 200 pounds. She commented the situation that way: “When the engine runs down, the only drug is food”.
While kidding, called herself a brown elephant…
Were the improvements made?
It can said that no, as on the show “Tina Turner and the Cher” she looked quite curvy. It was released in 2008, but the replies over her look on it were very critical from the Oprah first, then from fans and journalists.
Here they are: “I felt awful. I wanted just disappear”.
The next years brought some good changed, as in 2009 she weighed 160 pounds (72kg), making the full-body shoot for the cover of “O, Oprah Magazine”, being no afraid of critics, nor shy.
Nevertheless, the star preferred to stay healthy, but no thin, strong, but not weak, and started doing a serious work-out in gym and even at home. As the new show OWN got started, she should have looked attractive and appealing.
How are things at present?
In spring 2015 all the newspapers reported about the amazing weight-loss done by Oprah in the recent time, at it may be measured in 30 pounds or 13,6 kg.
Now her weight is 170 (77kg), and it seems she is quite proud and happy. Currently the actress works on the series “The Greenleaf”, which are going to be released this year.
Besides, Oprah signed a deal with weight loss company and now does some advertisements, where on the own example shows the challenge.
To conclude, it may be said that there are no perfect standards, as everything around is changing quickly, and prove are plus-sized models. So, it’s your own choice, don’t be scared to do it!
