Carnie Wilson Undergoes Weight Loss Surgery For A Second Time

Filed under: BodySurgery

Carnie Wilson has publicly battled her weight throughout her entire career and at one point even underwent gastric bypass surgery which took 150 pounds off of her frame.

Unfortunately, the transformation didn't stick and she gained a lot of the weight back after giving birth to two daughters.

"Having children derailed me a bit. I'm just frustrated with these pounds," the Wilson Philips singer shared in a 2010 interview.

Now she's giving surgery another shot and hopes that the lap-band will not only help shed the unwanted pounds, but keep them off for good! Carnie underwent the procedure on January 18th and we're happy to report that she has since lost 30 pounds, as she explained:

"It was the right decision for me and I'm doing really well so far. It's all about taking good care of myself."

And we hope she continues to take care of herself in the future! Good luck, gurl!
