Wow! I didn't realize how many people have had weight-loss surgery...sounds like a bunch of you.
Do you think that after Carnie Wilson had the surgery (did you see her 'after' picture on the cover of People earlier this year?!?) weight-loss surgery has become more popular - or at least more talked about?
I'd be interested to see what happens to Carnie over the years. She was quite heavy before the surgery and even with the surgery would have had to make some major lifestyle changes. I understand from the People magazine article that she is newly married and wants to have children. What do you suppose the chances are that she will be able to carry a baby to term - when she can't hold more than a few ounces of food in her system? (I'm not being a skeptic here, just curious.)
There's another site that she is the host of at http://www.spotlighthealth.com/morbid_obesity/mo/mo.htm
I think the site is actually run by the doctors who did her surgery so it's probably more of a promotional tool, but it IS interesting to read what's happening to her (she keeps kind of an online journal). You might want to check it out!
