Oprah's health concerns help her focus on weight loss

Oprah Winfrey has spoken about what motivates her to keep control of her weight.

The TV mogul, whose yo-yo weight is as famous as her business acumen and media prowess, explained to the NY Times Magazine that it's all about maintaining her health.
