Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - Your letters -

Great is­sue You’ve done it once again, Aus­tralian Women’s Weekly, with the Fe­bru­ary is­sue’s beau­ti­ful pho­tos of Richie and Gemma on their wed­ding day, and a mind­bog­gling choice of what to read first... the won­der women on page 40, Ita But­trose look­ing amaz­ing at 75, say­ing farewell to Car­rie Fisher and my teenage favourite Deb­bie Reynolds, or Oprah? I feel as if I have known Oprah for­ever! As she has en­gaged with au­di­ences through­out the world, I have learnt about her child­hood, her early years in tele­vi­sion, her re­la­tion­ships. She has shared her­self with us as friends do, and that is why start­ing with her story was my choice. What Oprah says sounds like prob­lems many of us ex­pe­ri­ence with our weight, as we be­come slaves to yo-yo di­et­ing and try­ing to lose those few kilo­grams, week af­ter week! It is won­der­ful to see that Oprah is at last com­fort­able in her own skin and en­joy­ing life, hav­ing es­tab­lished a healthy, ac­cept­able rou­tine and life­style. She’s a great ex­am­ple to all of us or­di­nary women bat­tling weight is­sues. IS­ABEL ASH­MORE
