"The message isn't 'Go out and get a surgery today,'" the Wilson Phillips singer, 43, said during an interview on "Today." "The most important thing I think we need to remember is that we're a work in progress. Do not be ashamed or afraid to ask for help. That's what I did. I asked for help," she revealed.
After having gastric bypass surgery back in 1999, the singer shed a staggering 150 lbs off her over 300 lbs frame -- only to gain the majority of that weight back after giving birth to her two children. Recently, Carnie went under the knife again for a lap-band surgery, shrinking the size of her stomach to that of a golf ball. She's thus far 30 lbs lighter after her most recent operation.
"I was at the point where I did need intervention," Wilson admitted. "I'm 44 this month. I needed to take action. I needed to help myself again. What I feel now -- I feel the sensation of being full quickly, which I was not feeling." In addition to her new, downsized stomach, Carnie has been exercising regularly and cut sugar and flour out of her diet. "I've learned I've got to take care of my health. This is about health ... It's about my lifestyle. I'm laying the groundwork for myself, for my future," she shared.
Let's hope Carnie can stick to a healthy lifestyle this time around. She'll be visiting AOL Music's New York office along with her Wilson Phillips bandmates tomorrow (April 4)! Tweet us your questions for Carnie and the ladies @aolmusic!
