Having reached 212lbs, Carnie Wilson says that she isn’t able to lose the weight she needs to on her own.
“I need help,” the mom-of-two tells People.
Carnie, 41, has battled weight problems for much of her life. In 1999 she underwent gastric bypass surgery, broadcast live on the internet, and went from 300lbs to 150lbs.
She was able to keep the weight off for a while, but says that her pregnancies – she gained 70lbs with her daugher Lola, 4, and 61lbs with Luciana, 8 months – “derailed me a bit.”
Now starring in her own reality show, Carnie Wilson: Unstapled, the singer reveals that she wants to reach her goal weight of 160lbs for her daughters as much as for herself.
“I have to be a teacher to my daughters,” she says. “Lola started to notice commercials on TV with people who are trying to lose weight, and she looks at me. She’s thinking about this stuff, and it’s getting to her.”
