Oprah Winfrey in ad for Weight Watchers

*Oprah Winfrey documents her hard-fought struggle to lose weight  in her first ad for Weight Watchers – and it is moving people to tears, according to Twitter.

The TV titan premiered the U.K. version of her commercial on Christmas Eve. Mixed in with throwback footage of her at various sizes is the TV mogul sitting outside, speaking candidly about her weight-loss battle:

“Inside every overweight woman is a woman she knows she can be,” Winfrey, 61, says in the 60-second spot.

“Many times you look in the mirror and you don’t even recognize your own self because you got lost, buried in the weight that you carry,” she admits, before gearing up for her motivational moment.

“Nothing you’ve ever been through is wasted,” the television host, who purchased 10 percent of Weight Watchers shares back in October, proclaims. “So every time I tried and failed, every time I tried again, and every time I tried again, has brought me to this most powerful moment to say, ‘If not now, when?'”
