Media mogul says she lost nearly 30 pounds without giving up love for bread

Oprah Winfrey has revealed that she lost nearly 30 pounds since embarking on her Weight Watchers journey.

And the best part? She didn't have to rid her love for bread in order to it. 

The media mogul shared the revelation on the latest Weight Watchers commercial, in which a happy Oprah announced she lost an impressive 26 pounds. 

Winfrey said she learned to "manage" her weight despite indulging in her daily bread cravings.

"This is the joy for me!" Winfrey said in the video she tweeted this week. "I love bread! I love bread."

"I lost 26 pounds and I have eaten bread every. single. day," she added.

Even better for Winfrey, shares for Weight Watchers--which she's now part-owner of--soared 20 percent after sharing her bread-friendly weight loss news.

"The company's market value rose by nearly $150 million after Oprah's tweet — a little more than $5.6 million for each pound she lost," CNN reported.
