Carnie Wilson of the band Wilson Phillips has undergone a second weight-loss surgery and has already dropped 30 pounds.
On January 18, 2012, she had lap-band surgery, where a silicone band is placed around the stomach to make it roughly the size of a golf ball. The 43-year-old singer lost 30 pounds in roughly a month and plans to continue losing weight.
"It was the right decision for me and I'm doing really well so far," Wilson told People magazine. "It's all about taking good care of myself."
Wilson, who is the daughter of Beach Boys singer/songwriter Brian Wilson, underwent gastric bypass surgery in August 1999. At the time the singer, who is 5'3'' tall, weighed nearly 300 pounds. She lost 150 pounds but later gained the weight back. Wilson went on to become a contestant on "Celerity Fit Club" in 2006, where she lost 22 pounds.
In February 2010, Wilson appeared on "The Dr. Oz Show" where she was warned about her weight gain and blood pressure. At the time, she was weighed in front of the audience and was shown to be 218 pounds.
In November 2010, Wilson was dropped as a spokesperson for The Fresh Diet for eating food off their restricted diet plan.
Wilson made a brief comeback in 2011 to audiences with her appearance alongside her Wilson Phillips band members in the hit film "Bridesmaids." Wilson also appeared on a January 2 episode of "Celebrity Wife Swap," which show her swapping places with "Growing Pains" actress Tracey Gold.
Wilson has two daughters - Losa, 6, and Luciana, 2, with her husband, musician Rob Bonfiglio. She told People that having children "derailed" her from her weight-loss efforts.
Wilson Phillips have recently been promoting their upcoming album "Dedicated," which is slated for release on April 3. The band has also been making rounds for their TV Guide Network reality show, "Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On," which premieres on April 8.
