I have watched several of Oprah's shows where she has been opposed to weight loss. I also remember that wagon, that 67 pounds and those great jeans that only fit her for a few days. From that show I got the idea of doing the liquid diet. Like Oprah, I lost and then immediately regained, with extra of course. I know I'm not the only one who jumped on that band wagon after Oprah.
I'm sure she is aware that if she has WLS or even supports it, then she may be the catalyst for many people to have the surgery. What if something goes wrong for one of them? What if they lose and regain? I think Oprah may not want to be responsible for what other people do in regards to their weight, so she is very careful about supporting anything with even the potential of a bad outcome. Just my opinion, of course.
For years I was opposed to WLS because I thought it was too drastic and I was afraid. Then there came the time when I was more afraid NOT to have it. I considered it a last resort, which it why I have to make this work. I don't have any other options. I wish Oprah all the luck in the world with whatever weight loss method she chooses.
I am 11 months out and down 130 pounds. I have about 50 pounds to go. This was the best decision of my life but it took me years to decide to do it!
