Carnie Wilson undergoes weight loss surgery – for the second time!

Twelve years ago Carnie Wilson underwent gastric bypass surgery, and lost 150 pounds. After gaining a lot of weight back, the singer underwent the same surgery (lap-band) again on January 18.

During the procedure, a silicone band is placed around the stomach to create a pouch about the size of a golf ball. Since having the surgery, Wilson, 43, has lost 30 pounds so far.

“It was the right decision for me and I’m doing really well so far,” Wilson tells PEOPLE. “It’s all about taking good care of myself.”

The singer, who is reuniting with Wilson Philips to promote their new album, Dedicated and their TV Guide Network reality show, Wilson Philips: Still Holding On, has struggled to lose the post-pregnancy pounds. Wilson has two daughters, Lola, 6, and Luciana, 2, with her musician husband Rob Bonfiglio, 44.

“Having children derailed me a bit,” Wilson told PEOPLE in 2010 of her weight struggles. “I’m just frustrated with these pounds.”

Wilson Philips’s new album drops April 3 and their series premieres on April 8.

I’ve heard that you can just eat your way around those surgeries. I’m surprised she did it again – rather than try and deal with why she’s eating like that in the first place.

You can’t eat your way around the lap band. You can get it loosened so you can eat more (or tightened and you eat less), but if you eat too much, you will throw it back up. There’s basically nowhere for the food to go if you eat too much of it. My husband got it and I see this on a daily basis. Some days he can eat well, and some days, he’ll take a bite into a sandwich, and he can’t eat anymore. I think this will help Carnie out a lot.

I am surprised she had a second surgery. The first time it totally made sense. But like you I wonder why she didn’t go for a nutritionist and trainer. Losing weight is really hard but why lose the ability to ever enjoy a meal again?

Her daughter is already looking heavy for her age. Carney needs to get it together for her kids.
