Writer and self-professed Oprah-lover Caissie St. Onge recently wrote a Facebook post about her thoughts on Oprah Winfrey's new role as spokesperson for Weight Watchers.

She describes sitting in bed on New Year's Day, watching Oprah's new Weight Watchers commercial and having an epiphany:

But it is also incredibly freeing if you, like me, have thought about your weight so many times throughout every day of your life that it becomes as maddening and distracting as if you’d stowed a beating tell-tale heart beneath your floorboards.
