Kelly Osbourne has recently shown her weight loss when she visited a restaurant in Los Angeles. She is a well-known figure in acting, singing, modeling, and fashion designing. The daughter of the power couple Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, ‘The Osbournes’, ‘Fashion Police’, and ‘Dancing with the Stars’ are some of her well-known appearances.
The TV personality, 38, is 5-foot-2 and formerly weighed 197 pounds. That is about 14 stone. This makes her BMI (Body Mass Index) 36, making her part of the obesity category. A BMI equal to or greater than 30 is considered obese, which Kelly Osbourne was one.
The fashion icon’s amazing weight loss started when she recently had gastric sleeve surgery, making her lose a whopping 6 stones. Kelly admitted to secretly go under the said surgery to lose weight, the surgery happened last year. According to Mayo Clinic, a gastric sleeve surgery or also known as ‘sleeve gastrectomy’, is a weight-loss surgery. During this procedure, nearly 80% of the stomach is removed. They then attach an artificial stomach the size and shape of a banana.
Limiting the size of the stomach allows the person to consume fewer amounts of food. There are hormonal changes also to assist with weight loss. This procedure is usually done on obese people or people with weight-associated health problems like type 2 diabetes.
Kelly has earlier admitted that she is ‘proud’ of the surgical procedure but says she has ‘saggy’ boobs. She then said, albeit with caution, that she would like to go under a procedure to have perkier and firmer breasts. The singer said in an interview that the procedure looks painful, making her think that it may not be the best course.
She then added in the same interview her comments on people’s view on her weight loss saying: “I had surgery; I don’t give a f**k what anyone has to say. I did it. I’m proud of it. They can suck s**t. I did the gastric sleeve.”
The model then explained that the surgery paved the path of her eating right. She had to work out and eat healthy to effectively lose weight. Not doing this will only make the person gain weight. Additionally, the procedure regulates hormones then potentially stop addiction issues, this eventually will stop a person’s cravings. She said it has helped her tremendously on not stress eating, which is a huge problem for Kelly.
With her 6 stone weight loss, her current weight now is 112 pounds or 8 stone. This makes her BMI 20.5, putting her in the normal weight category.
