In between posing for pictures on the Queen Sugar premiere’s red carpet, Winfrey admitted that Weight Watchers — for which she is a spokesperson and shareholder — had helped her lose a significant amount of weight. According to the media mogul, the weight loss has even spiced up her relationship with longtime partner Stedman Graham.
“I would like him to pick me up and carry me to the pool. I’ve lost enough weight, he can pick me up and carry me to the pool,” Winfrey joked to People magazine. “I can straddle him without breaking his back.”
Winfrey added of Weight Watchers, “I don’t feel like I’m on a diet that I’m ever going to go off again. I feel like I’ll be counting points for the rest of my life.”
