Carnie Wilson's Weight War Continues

Carnie Wilson's Weight War Continues

Singer and former talk show host Carnie Wilson tries to work off a little weight, jogging early Monday morning near her home in Los Angeles.

The 39-year-old was also seen getting a manicure at Euphoria Hand & Foot Spa in Los Angeles on Saturday.

In 2000, Carnie reached over 300 pounds and received gastric bypass surgery, a procedure that reduced the size of her stomach to that of an egg. The surgery was a success and she ended up losing 150 pounds. However, after giving birth to her daughter, Lola, now 2, Carnie appears to have gained all the weight back again.

“Everyone can see that I’m bigger, but I cannot hibernate,” she tells OK!. “I’ve never lied or been dishonest about what’s going on in my life. Even all these years later, having had such a great weight-loss story, being back in this place is so familiar. And it hurts. I don’t want to feel this way anymore. It doesn’t feel good when you have to struggle to get your pants on.”

    She just eats too much. She let herself go again. It can be hard to loose weight but avoiding those fatty foods is the solution and she probably is very “weak” with those foods. Maybe the people from Nutrisystem or j Craig will hire her and make her loose weight ASAP. I wish willpower to her!

    I feel so bad for her. Some people just have terrible digestive systems that work against them at every turn. And, of course, some foods are addictive, especially to those with eating disorders. I’ll bet her systems are shot. I also give her kudos for not giving up, and for not hiding.

    You dumb bi t ches. Sometimes it’s much harder to lose the weight even if you starve and work out. Most likely since she is working out and still struggling with her weight, means that she has a thyroid problem. Especially since after having the baby (which is a hormonal process) that would have affected her.

    I wish her much luck and I hope that she just keeps at it.

    “You dumb bi t ches”? No one said anything mean on here lily.

    I imagine that being as heavy as she was for much of her life, it must be incredibly difficult to change ingrained eating and lifestyle habits. Gastric bypass can only do so much, the rest is behavioral. I wish her luck – she looks and sounds miserable.

    That’s the thing i like about her. She’s honest and open about her weight. Unlike others who go “are you kidding me, i’m size 2!” and the like. It’s hard to keep the weight down when you’ve had such a big weight problem in the past. It’s definetely possible to make it, so i wish her the best and willpower girl! willpower!

    IN: You would die if you looked like that? Those remarks are why some young girls go through eating disorders! What a dumb thing to say!

    My heart breaks for her. Hope she can figure out a good healthy way of losing weight and not resort to something as drastic as bypass again. Wishing her all the best in her fight.

    PLEASE she doesn’t have a thyroid problem. That is one of the first things they checked for she said when she started putting on the weight again.

    Having the gastric by pass surgery is A TOOL to help you lose weight, its supposed to help you get started with a new way of eating, a life changing tool. She did what she was suuposed to do in the beginning, which is why she lost the weight, but she started to fall into her bad habits of eating sugars and over eating everything else. IT’S HER FAULT! I know because I had the gastric bypass surgery the same month she did, I am still a size 6. If I were to go back and start eating badly again I would put the weight back on too, but I know what to stay away from, I know my limits.

    She boosted that she would never be fat again when she was in PLAYBOY. She should have been smarter about her food choices and knew she couldn’t eat unhealthy again and still stay thin. She knew what she was doing, she’s just looking for a miricle without actually putting forth the effort into staying healthy.

    #8 if you don’t consider #4 and #5′s comment as well as your own mean and ignorant comments, well I don’t know what is.

    NOT all fat people are fat because they ate too much but of course you missed that point.

    OMG she’s looking at her manicured fingernails like they are going to help her looks in the least!! NO THEY ARE NOT, you look horrible!

    Carnie, you’re also getting OLD! You don’t have your cute face anymore, and now, no longer your cute body. You skin is sagging under your chin and this is AFTER you’ve had all this plastic surgery to help correct it. You have RUINED your body! There is not magic cure for you, you either have to face it that you CAN NOT EAT ANYTHING YOU WANT or face the fact that you are going to die young and leave your child without a mother. What is more important to you? That bowl of icecream or your daughter having a mother!!!!!

    It’s up to you! No amount of talking about wanting to be thin, is going to do it, get off your butt and do something about it now!

    I know that this is not a popular thing to say, —–but, I don’t believe this slow metabolism bullshit. I believe that people get fat because they eat too much and exercise too little. End of story.

    And this is for you Lily: I happen to like Carnie Wilson a lot, but she does not look good like this. Sorry!

    Cindy Says:

    If gastric bypass surgery doesn’t work, why can’t she just get her stomach removed? If there is no stomach, then she can’t eat right and she can’t get fat then?

    lily Says:

    #12, then YOU should have had a baby as well and see if that wouldn’t mess up your system. If you are back to your same weight post bypass then I might consider what you said.

    #15 it’s a proven scientific/ medical fact that your thyroid controls your metabolism. There is NO debate there.

    As for #16, “this is for your lily…” hilarious. I would rather money or a ticket to europe or something thank you very much.

    Hmm. I kinda relate to her because even though Ive never been anywhere near that heavy, my weight has been up and down for yrs. I think ppl overeat b.c of an emotional need. Its just sad she did the gastic bypass and gained it all back… but good for her, for working out and trying to get healthier again. I have nothing but love for her and wish her well.

    for your information I’ve had 4 children. 2 post surgery. So your therory doens’t have a leg to stand on. She eats too fricking much. END OF STORY! She’s getting older so yes, her matabolism is slowing down, but that’s where you start exercising and eating the right foods.

    I’m a nurse and I see this all the time. People who gained the weight back after surgery. It’s because they go back to their old ways of eating, plain and simple!

    The key is to not only address physical issues but emotional baggage, and work on the trigger points in ones behavior. If you don’t change habits and how you perceive things it doesn’t matter what was done physically.

    I do find it ironic that now she is trying exercise now, it probably would have been a good place to start after she healed from her surgery instead she embraced the same old ways and habits.
    Now she has end up the same way she was before surgery but with less options and more health risks.

    What is she so concerned about her weight? What is the big deal anyway? I thought being fat is pretty much accepted by the society now and no body really cares anymore. Instead, how about trying to shoot for another 15 minutes of fame, like guiness world record as the biggest person after having gastric bypass surgery? Boring story, Jared….

    People become obese when they eat too much, period. There are no wrong foods as much as there are limits to what we should eat. A bite or two of pasta or cake now and then won’t hurt anyone, but eating it in excess will.
    Exercise is also another key to maintaining a healthy body, mind and spirit.
    That said, there are also many people who battle serious food addictions, and not just anorexia or bulimia, but binge eating and compulsive overeating.
    To look at an obese person and say, ‘Why don’t they just stop eating?”, is not the point. No one can stop eating. We need food to fuel our bodies and keep it healthy. People who face eating disorders spin helplessly in a vicious cycle of dieting and gaining. I would imagine living in Hollywood where a size 0 is the norm would be very challenging and extremely hard for a person like Carnie Wilson, who clearly has a food issue.

    Just going on a diet doesn’t help in the long run if the real issue isn’t addressed. Look at Kirstie Alley. She lost her weight on Jenny Craig and then gained a lot of it back and is struggling yet again!

    While there doesn’t always have to be some major trauma (abuse, death of a loved one, sickness, etc.) that happened in a persons life to fuel the eating addiction, a lot of times one small thing will set it off, or a compilation of those things and the way to cope comes out in the form of eating. Some people drink, take drugs, have sex, gamble, shop, and or cut, to ease their pain and others eat. For an alcoholic or a drug addict, removing the drug of choice from their lives can be done by not having it there. But how do you remove food when it is all around us everywhere? TV, radio, magazines, movies, on every street corner all over and in our homes?!

    Eating addictions are a disease to the people who have them. Making fun of them or telling them to stop eating and get a grip isn’t what they need. They need compassion and understanding and help. A good eating disorder therapist and a healthy diet of real food and the support and love of friends and family, are what an obese person needs. Not sarcasm and ridicule.

    To those who whine “its so hard to lose weight” or its a “thyroid problem” get real
    I actually have a thyroid problem, I have had it for 15 years.
    in the begininng I did gain weight for no reason, however a year later I was on medication and became aware that I would have to struggle with my weight forever. I NEVER ONCE GOT THAT FREAKIN BIG!
    The heaviest I got at one point was 172 and that was the worse time of my life. The biggest problem with people like me is the actual weightloss part- it takes us about 4 times as much effort to be able to lose weight the way a normal person can-that has always been the hardest part-its a fight and it really gets you down when you don’t see the results that you should.
    Now for the past two months under my doctors supervision (with vitamins and nutrients added) I went on an extreme low calorie diet because I have injured myself and unable to be physical. The first month was no more than 850 calories, the next month no more than 1100. With no excersize at all- I lost 22 pounds in 2 months! I am only 9 pounds over my goal.
    the math is simple- Burn more than you eat, and if you are heavy you have plenty of fuel to burn-YOU WONT STARVE! – Its all about will power! Don’t keep stuffing your face.

    Wow. It’s scary to think what’s she’s done to her body. This is dangerous. I knew someone who gained it all back after GB and nearly died from digestive complications. And then there’s the skin removal surgery… Her poor skin has been stretched out twice now? Eeeek. Kind of a trainwreck.

    I don’t get the whole GB thing anyway. Just don’t eat so much and get off your butt.
