Oprah Winfrey credits her svelte new figure to following the Weight Watchers eating plan and being motivated by seeing noticeable changes in her body.

Oprah Winfrey is enjoying the progressive, yet healthy weightloss from her diet plan.

The media mogul, who has publicly struggled with her weight over the years, is currently a stakeholder and spokesperson for diet brand Weight Watchers. And Oprah has committed to the healthy eating plan and attaining her weightloss goals by sticking with what works.

"I'm still on (the Weight Watchers eating plan). I'm counting the points every day and slowly it's happening," she said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. "I love it." For the 62-year-old, losing weight and staying motivated on her meal plan is aided by seeing a noticeable change in her body. She also revealed she’s not looking to reach her goal by looking at a scale.

"It's a feeling where you get to the point where (you think), 'Oh I can go to the store, I can pick that size, it's available, I don't have to like have it altered and all that stuff.' So I'll know when I'm there," she shared.

Last month (Jun16), the broadcasting mogul revealed she plans to share her healthy diet and favourite recipes, with a new cookbook, Food, Health and Happiness: 'On Point' Recipes for Great Meals and a Better Life, which will be launched next January (17).

Now focusing on growing her OWN television network and publishing projects, Oprah reveals she doesn't have any regrets about walking away from her legendary talk show The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2011. The show was a ratings hit and cultural touchstone, but the star says it was the right time to move on.

"It was the most glorious, most amazing platform anybody can have to speak to millions of people every day and I think I exited in the exact right moment," she continued. "So now I get to tell stories in a different way."
