(LOS ANGELES) — Oprah Winfrey’s weight-loss journey has hit a distinct milestone, and her longtime boyfriend has the proof.
The media mogul and Weight Watchers spokeswoman talked to People magazine Monday night at the red carpet premiere of her network OWN’s drama Queen Sugar, where she was asked what her recent weight loss means for her beau Stedman Graham.
“I would like him to pick me up and carry me to the pool,” she said. “I’ve lost enough weight, he can pick me up and carry me to the pool. I can straddle him without breaking his back.”
Winfrey announced in January that she had lost more than 25 pounds, all — famously while still eating one of her favorite staples: bread.
“I genuinely feel that it’s been easier this time than the other 3,000 times I’ve gone on a diet because I don’t even feel like it is a diet,” she said back in May.
Along with her work for Weight Watchers, Oprah is also featured in a new scripted show for OWN, Greenleaf, which she is also producing. The show is generating a lot of positive buzz and she couldn’t be happier.
“I am actually doing it. I really only do what I want to do when I want to do it. That’s the best life,” she said earlier this summer.
