Los Angeles, March 11 (IANS) Talk show queen Oprah Winfrey says she has lost over 20 kg, and is loving it.

The 65-year-old joined a weight losing programme called Weight Watchers in 2015.

"Nearing the 45-pound weight loss mark is a great feeling," Winfrey said.

She said that the loss of her weight is the result of a lifestyle change instead of years of dieting, reports aceshowbiz.com.

"After spending literally years on more diets than I care to count, I finally made the shift from dieting to a lifestyle change.

"Everyone is different, but for me what's worked, is Weight Watchers... Today I'm more conscious about what I eat, balancing indulgent things with healthier options," she said.

"The Oprah Winfrey Show" host says she felt encouraged to take a holistic approach to health and fitness.

Winfrey added: "Today I'm more conscious about what I eat, balancing indulgent things with healthier options. I leave the table feeling satisfied - and to me, that's far more important than any number on the scale."

She also says it doesn't make sense to her how some people can live without bread and pasta.
