Chicago - An embarrassed Oprah Winfrey says she's "fallen off the wagon and broke three wheel spokes" of healthy living and has ballooned to 200 pounds.

In January's "O" magazine, (which has been changed to "The Big O") Winfrey, 54, details her recent struggles with an out-of-balance thyroid that's been the excuse of every single one of her fat guests in the past, and how the condition made her develop "a fear of working out and a craving for sweet potato pie with a milkshake."

Close friends say that she had to do something. She had recently been showing up on Chicago Weather reports as an unknown blip.

She also made mincemeat of Janet Jackson wardrobe accident at the Super Bowl when bending over to pick up guest Gary Coleman.

She says she's gained 40 pounds since 2006, when she weighed 160. Before that, she weighed 250, and the Show had to use a special effect device."

"I look at my thinner self and think, `How did I let this happen again?'" the talk-show queen says in the article provided early to The Associated Press by Harpo Productions.

"I'm embarrassed, she says. "I even tried to hide the extra chins wby growing a beard."

"I'm mad at myself."

"Is that sweet potato pie they're serving at the canteen?"
