Despite her truest love, Oprah Winfrey is in the best shape of her life.
Butter us shocked!
As an ambassador and part owner of Weight Watchers, the beloved TV icon her new body to a lifestyle change.
And she has no intention of putting down that delicious slice of doughy delight.

With the Weight Watchers Beyond the Scale program, she's lost 12 kilograms in less than a year - but she doesn't follow the diet strictly. For the star, it's all about compromise and being organised with your exercise when you know you're about to indulge.
"Yesterday, I knew I was going to be having General Tso's chicken for dinner," she told E! News.
"So I did an extra 30 minutes of exercise and then I walked the dogs around a couple of more times."
Miss Winfrey, you are looking good! (L) In April Oprah showed off her svelte frame at the Tribeca Tune In event, compared to last year's Oscars (R).
And the 62-year-old isn’t about give up the yummy things in life. In fact she’s discovering a little thing called “balance” and it is working a treat (especially when she wants to eat a treat).
"It's OK because tomorrow is another day. You don't have to feel like, 'Oh, I shouldn't have eaten that biscuit!'"
Wiser words have never been spoken.
She recently chatted to a few lucky Weight Watch members, imparting some pearls of wisdom.
The veteran journalist admitted that water is SO important, but even she has trouble drinking it.

“I don't get enough water in the day. I don't really like water but I'm grateful to have it. I'm drinking a tea. It's like water infused with ginger and a hint of vanilla - I'm trying to trick myself that way," she explained.
With many tricks up her sleeves, she shared many nifty hints including some healthy food swaps like Cauliflower mash, where she adds one potato into the mixture to help with the taste and texture.
Oprah also dished she loves spaghetti squash and revealed her secret tip on how best to enjoy it.
It TOTALLY helps that Oprah has her very own farm with delicious fresh produce at her doorstep.
“If you put just a few noodles in with the spaghetti squash, just a few, like a little mixture… it's a lot more satisfying."
For all of us at home who aren’t Oprah, just remember diets are hard and there no such thing as mistakes… just lessons (Oprah taught us that!)
“I had to get to be 62 to figure it out," the philanthropist concluded.
We love you, Oprah.
