“I can Straddle Stedman Graham without breaking his back” Oprah Winfrey talks about the Joys of Losing Weight

Oprah Winfrey is most definitely enjoying her smaller frame and says that thanks to her weight loss she’s able to do new things with boo Stedman Graham.

At the premiere of OWN’s original drama series Queen Sugar, she spoke to People Magazine on what her figure means to her long-time partner:

I’ll like him to pick me up and carry me to the pool. I’ve lost enough weight, he can pick me up and carry me to the pool. I can straddle him without breaking his back.

In January, 62 year-old Oprah revealed that she had lost 26 lbs at that time and in May, the TV mogul said Weight Watchers has been a true lifestyle change.

“I don’t feel like I’m on a diet that I’m ever going to go off again,” she said. “I feel like I’ll be counting points for the rest of my life.”

      Just go to Google Images
      Turn off Safe Search
      Search for ‘Woman straddles Man’

      A picture is worth a thousand words.

    Oprah I love you but please keep those mental images to yourself.
    So akin to imagining one’s parents straddling each other.

    Peeps who are confidently overweight and flaunt it…same peeps are over the moon when they loose 2lbs. Not body shaming( it is crucial to stay fit and healthy). Just don’t sound it, fat isn’t ok! Congrats Oprah.

    ??? until I read the comments I was thinking straddle as in what we call ‘backing’.
    Chimoo! I guess I subconsciously didn’t even want to let my mind go there ?

    I used to get an asexual vibe from her and I think she likes Stedman way more than he likes her.

    OMG to straddle based on her description is to be carried on ones back the way a mother backs a child…..she spoke in context of being picked up and carried into the pool. What is wrong with people and their compulsive desire to twist things the wrong or dirty way?????

    And Bella Naija also quoted her in a very fishy way….
