* WINFREY 'EMBARRASSED' BY WEIGHT GAIN OPRAH WINFREY is embarrassed after packing on 40 pounds in recent months - because she now tips the scales at 200 pounds. The talk show queen writes in the January (09) issue of her O magazine she's fallen off the wagon after years of struggling to maintain a healthy weight. She says, I'm mad at myself... I'm embarrassed... I can't believe that after all these years, all the things I know how to do, I'm still talking about my weight. I look at my thinner self and think, 'How did I let this happen again?' Winfrey announced she was diagnosed with thyroid imbalance last year (07), and remembers, I was so frustrated I started eating whatever I wanted - and that's never good. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Winfrey's weight gain categorises her as obese and puts the 54-year-old at higher risk for chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol.
