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.
