Oprah Winfrey is one of the highly motivated celebs who is known to inspire others like anything. The actress has been quite open about her depression struggles and her weight loss issues as well.
On the eve of Global Wellness Day, the lady shared:
her pre-diabetic weight loss struggles. She started by saying
“I haven’t shared with many, but I will share with you, that I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes before WW,”
Pre-diabetes is a condition where blood sugar levels are higher than the normal but not high enough that it will show type 2 diabetes on the scale. Some 84 million people globally suffer from this whereas 90% of them don’t even know about this disease.
Those with prediabetes have no clear symptoms other than intense thirst. In case the same is left untreated then within a very short span of time let’s say five years you might get full-blown diabetes. The condition can be improved by some lifestyle changes like reducing sugar, cutting down smoking, losing weight, exercising, eating healthy, etc.

Winfrey wrote that WW (Formerly weight watchers ) helped her to lose weight and regain life. She lost a good 42 pounds during this journey.
“Beyond the weight, WW has helped me make healthier choices and understand the real numbers that matter most,”
The lady further added
“Life is now stabilized and in a healthy range, and my blood sugar numbers are back to normal too. Gone, for me, are the days of wanting to be thin to fit into anything other than my best body and best life”
Finally, she is happy to state that
“The struggle has ended,”
