Addressing her weight re-gain, Winfrey said, "None of the doctors recognized it was a thyroid problem, but our viewers did."

"The moment I heard I had a thyroid problem, I thought I don't even know how to fight this."

Winfrey admitted in this month's edition of O magazine that her entire body hadn't been featured on the cover last year because she was embarrassed by her weight.

"Here I am one of the most visible people in the world, trying to hide my body," Winfrey said.

So, Oprah got depressed, gained weight, then got depressed because she was chubs again?
