My Banded Time

Carnie Wilson? A Bandster? Wow..Welcome to the club!

I"m sure a lot of you have read the news that Carnie Wilson has the lap band.   She's a bandster..Back to Carnie...I hope that everything works out...she has encountered praise for her weight loss efforts but so much criticism...Here is a woman who opens her heart and tells people about overcoming her greatest challenge and then people criticize her for getting surgery and then for getting fat again...What right do they have?  What right does anyone have in criticizing the way someone looks? I applaud her for putting herself out there and I only wish her luck.

As much as I wish I had gotten a gastric bypass, I"m reminded that the band was an excellent decision for me...Surgery was relatively non invasive with no complications and its instituted long term habit changes for me.I don't criticize other WLS...whatever works toward bringing people to better health outcomes is a good thing.

Carnie, more power to you!!!!


  1. Why do you wish you had gastric bypass?

    I wish Carnie all the best...I haven't told hardly anyone!


  2. I didn't realise that she'd had a band, although I'm in the UK so not a big surprise.

    I've hardly told anyone, I'm almost 2 years out and only about 6 or 7 people know.

  3. I wish her well too. She did great with the gastric bypass. But sometime a little extra help doesn't hurt anyone.

  4. To be honest, I'm not even sure who that woman is! But good on her for taking control of her life (again)... hope it goes better for her this time around.

  5. I forget Ronnie's so young! You don't know Carnie Wilson?!?! Anyway...I hope it works for her as well. Although, I hate when celebrities get WLS. If it fails them for some reason, it's just another reason for people to be negative about it. If it works, they say it's the "easy way." It almost brings too much attention to it.
