Oprah and Weight Watchers???

Ok, I am really confused. What the hell is Oprah doing on Weight Watchers? Seriously. Someone with all the money in the world for personal chefs, shoppers, nutritionists, trainers, supplements, doctors, psychologists, etc. and we are supposed to believe that WEIGHT WATCHERS is her method of choice for losing weight????? I watched her video “Why I joined Weight Watchers” and I still don’t understand the WHY. I agree with everything she says on it, but she doesn’t say a darned thing about why it works.

I get the message that despite the resources that Oprah has, she too struggles with weight loss and body issues. Indeed this is something that many women struggle with regardless of their wealth or status. However I just don’t “buy” that out of all the possibilities for weight loss, Oprah has chosen Weight Watchers. What about the Paleo diet, huh, Oprah?? ;)

Anyway, Oprah has an obvious business interest in Weight Watchers, but if it results in motivating and encouraging others to lose weight and live healthier, happier lives, then it’s a win all around. Just forgive me though if I reserve a huge ‘helping’ of skepticism as to how much “Weight Watchers” is to thank for giving Oprah “the tools to begin to make the lasting shift that I and so many of us who are struggling with weight have longed for”…

Ok - talk later. I need to go and find out how much $ it's going to cost for my new Weight Watchers membership :)
