I don’t follow Oprah’s comings and goings that closely, but I notice that she is up over two hundred pounds again and is feeling pretty low about it. I’m not sure if she has mentioned it in these same terms, but I have some thoughts on the subject.
I put on a couple of kilos myself in the run up to the November election. I was very concerned about the issues being presented, or not being presented as the case may be. I was on pins and needles for month after month, and I’ll bet that Oprah was in the same boat. My guess is that both of us, in our driven-to-distraction state, got a little less careful about what we were eating. Both of us get into social situations on a regular basis where we are presented with large quantities of delicious food, and I’ll bet that each of us gave in to the temptation to eat more than we would have under more relaxing circumstances. I don’t know about Oprah, but I was falling back on my comfort menu more often than I had for several years.
I wish us both luck over the next few months getting back into some of our clothes.
