In 1988, she showed off her new figure duringa taping of her show in Chicago after she lost 67 pounds following a liquid diet and exercise.

In 1992, Winfrey weighed her heaviest at 237 lbs and made it her goal to lose weight. By 2005 she had dropped down to a toned 160 lbs, but slowly gained 40 lbs until she reached 200 lbs in 2008. In the December 2008 issue of O, Winfrey revealed her battle with food addiction, lack of exercise and a thyroid issue. Winfrey still continues to struggle with her weight.
