Carnie Wilson's Big Comeback

3/11/2008 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

She had her gastric bypass surgery broadcast on the Internet in 1999 and appeared on "Celebrity Fit Club" in 2006, but former Wilson Phillips singer Carnie Wilson's battle of the bulge wages on -- as she worked out with a trainer in L.A. on Monday.

Hold on for one more day, girl!

It just shows that the dangerous ( yes it is read up on it) surgery doesn't always fix everything.. a quick fix yes, but in the long run????? Good for her for working out.

Go Away Paris......You are a SKANK    

Some people are just gonna be fat no matter what they do. Look at Star Jones, she looks like a deflated fat person right now but I bet that within 5 years that her weight will be up to her fat old self. My mother in law was obese, had gastric bypass surgery, got down to 107 lbs. Two years later she is back up to over 250. Dont ask me how but it takes more than a gastric bypass in a lot of people. They can liposuck it out and it will come back if you dont quit eating and start exercising.
I probably would still hit Carnie thought. Smack that big behind, watch it giggle to a stop, then hit it again, watch it giggle to a stop and so on, so forth.
I cant wait till that untalented ugly beak nosed Paris Hilton gets fat. She is such a non talented, non celebrity parasitic hoe!

How could she eat enough toput on any weight? I thought with the surgery, she could eat even less than the proverbial bird?

Keep on trying! You are a food addict, no different then a drug addict. The surgery doesnt take away the mental desire to use food as your drug of choice.

Why does that trainer look so bored?? Doesnt look like he's giving her much enthusiasm about working out. She needs to get those trainers from "The Biggest Loser". They'll make her feel good bout working out!!!

I really feel for her. People who do not struggle with their weight really don't understand. It is an addiction just like smoking, doing drugs, etc. Please be nice to people who are overweight as our self esteem is already at its lowest. It is really not as simple as putting the fork down. I especially feel for celebrities who struggle because of the intense media spotlight.

I honestly believe some people were just not made to be small......just like some weren't made to be average as there are tons of super skinny girls out there too.

:what ev errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr    

Alot of times when you loose massive amounts of weight too quickly, like most of these bariatric surgeries cause, the patients loose alot of muscle mass, which can NEVER be regained. You can lift weights, but you gotta to do that 3 to 4 hours a day, EFD. Man you can gain weight on 1600 calories a day if you lost alot of muscle mass. Hell look at Oprah, same senario. She can claim her "thyroid" is out of wack all she wants, but fact is, she lost 110 lbs in 10 months and lost a hell of alot of muscle doing so.

Pretty sad for Carnie, really.

The gastric bypass shrinks your stomach but if you eventually start eating big meals or a lot of food again, it stretches back out. And if she gained that much weight back, she must not be that dedicated because that is ridiculous to go through surgery and exercise and whatever else to lose all that weight, just to go back to being lazy and piggish and eating whatever the heck you want...instead of continuing to watch what you eat, etc. That's a shame!

Gastric Bypass is not a "Magic Bullet". You have to be sensible. I see people who have the surgery, but eat nothing but candy and potatoe chips after, thinking they will lose the weight. NO, there are not people out there destined to be fat. There are people out there who eat junk, do not exercise after they lose weight. The only way to lose weight and keep it off is to eat healthy ALL YOUR LIFE!!!

She has a beautiful face, a beautiful voice and a beautiful family! Just stay healthy and don't worry about being thin. Life is too short to not enjoy all the positive things in life when the little negatives keep trying to hold us back!

I thought you couldn't eat that much after having that surgery. Did she have the process reversed?

She's another example of bariatric surgery failure. She is NOT trying. IF she were, she wouldn't eat until she gains the weight back. A lot of people had the surgery thinking they could eat what they wanted after. It doesn't work that way. You are supposed to have psychological counselling to help with the dependence on food. Surgery alone does not work.

I hope she finds out what works for her. She is very sweet and caring. I saw her talk about her gastic bypass a few years ago in Southern California. She told us that it is not just the surgery, but what feelings come up after. Carnie told us that we needed to work on all of our insides and out or we would gain it back. I didn't do the surgery, but went on Weight Watchers for a year and a half and lost 150 pounds. I have kept off 100 of it in and its been 4 years. I even had a baby. My daughter is 8 months old.

She treated everyone like she would do with friends. She sat with us for over 2 hours and talked like friends would do. She is an awesome lady!

At least she reocgnizes she's gaining it back and is working on it. She is still MUCH thinner than she was when she had the surgery. She can lose it still, and should actually be given credit for working on it, instead of being put down for her gain. While the surgery she had is permanent, the pouch that's left can still be stretched out and gains can occur. Even with the surgery it's a lifelong battle of controlling portions and exercise.
