***DO NOT READ THIS BLOG IF YOU'RE ALL SPARKLY TODAY AND DON'T WANT TO SPOIL IT!***
So, I was thinking about Oprah's struggle with her weight over the years.
She certainly looks beautiful and happy right now.
I am very happy for her and love and admire her deeply.
But, with all of her resources or access to them- personal aides, one on one personal trainers, multiple gyms at home(s) and work, dietician, chef, massage therapist.....
Why is she still overweight?
What makes me think I (an average retired 59 yr old who shops, cooks, cleans, works part-time, has the normal stresses of life, struggles with my bills, etc.) can ever lose weight and keep it off when even Oprah, one the richest women in America, who has publicly professed that very same goal, cannot seem to do it?
I know, I know, I know- we should never compare our journeys to others.
I'm just saying...
P.S: To clarify, I am in NO WAY criticizing Oprah!
My point is - no wonder I'm struggling- EVEN OPRAH can't do it.
