Oprah Showcases Her Weight Loss, Celebrates Feeling ‘Vibrant'

Oprah Winfrey is living her best life. The talk show host and mogul, 62, showed off her slimmed-down figure on the cover of O Magazine’s April 2016 issue.

"This month I join forces with a legion of women, all of us declaring a win-win for our bodies and ourselves," Winfrey says of the issue’s body-positive cover, which features nine real women alongside the icon. "Because I know this for sure: With age comes the understanding and appreciation of your most important asset, your health." 

The businesswoman has been off and on diets for decades, and recently joined forces with Weight Watchers. In the new issue, Winfrey reveals she’s found a new approach to weight loss.

"Gone, for me, are the days of wanting to be thin to fit into anything other than my best body and best life," she says. “I feel vibrant and charged up for all the great ventures and adventures I know are coming. Every day offers a new chance to embrace the wonder of being alive. And believe me, I do. I pay attention to the tiniest things … Another spring, new life. Nature changes herself yet again. We can change ourselves, too — blossoming into better habits.”

Winfrey announced in January that she’s lost 26 pounds since joining Weight Watchers in October. The best part of the diet for the TV personality? She still gets to eat carbs.

"This is the joy for me," Winfrey explained via Twitter in January. "I love bread. I love bread. I now just manage it, so I don't deny myself bread, I have bread every day."

O Magazine’s March 2016 issue hits stands on March 15.
