I'm always very skeptical about weight loss surgery. I just don't feel like there's enough post op support for patients. A lot of people's issues with food are mental and/or emotional and a quick physical fix doesn't automatically re-wire that connection. But what do I know?
Southern rapper Paul Wall has revealed taking part in massive weight loss surgery and the aftermath of losing more than 100 pounds.
Wall's decision to get the surgery done came at the heels of outside influences pointing out his weight.
"Honestly, when we were in Afghanistan and [reps for VH1's] Celebrity Fit Club were contacting [me] about coming on the show, that was a h*ll of a wake-up call," Wall said in an interview. "[Being fat] isn't a secret. You can look in the mirror and try to hide it and cover it up, and it may work here or there, but there ain't no shirt or hat you can put on or haircut you can get to hide the fact that you're morbidly obese. That's what the doctor said: I was 'morbidly obese.' I decided not to do [the show] but it was still a wake-up call to have people calling you saying, 'Hey, you're really, really fat.'"
