Kelly Osbourne Opens Up About Weight Loss Surgery That Helped Her Lose 85 Lbs.

Kelly Osbourne lost a whopping 85 lbs., and now she’s opening up about how she did it.

The 35-year-old told the “Hollywood Raw” podcast she underwent gastric sleeve surgery and called it the “best thing I’ve ever done.”

“I had surgery; I don’t give a f--- what anyone has to say,” she said. “I did it, I’m proud of it… I did the gastric sleeve. All it does is change the shape of your stomach. I got that almost two years ago. I will never ever, ever lie about it, ever. It is the best thing I have ever done.”

The surgery was only one part of her transformation. Kelly explained, “The kind of surgery I had… if you don’t work out and you don’t eat right, you gain weight. All it does is move you in the right direction. So, anyone who’s thinking of doing something like this, really think about that.”

Osbourne said she had a year of therapy to prepare her for the life change, adding, “What people don’t realize is, it cuts out this hormone that if you have addiction issues, it stops your craving and it makes you not emotionally eat, which is a huge problem for me… All it is, is a push in the right direction. It doesn’t solve all your problems. It’s not a quick fix.”

Kelly said it is all about mindset. “The number one thing I had to do was get happy,” she insisted. “I had to fix my head before I could fix my body. You can never go into this if you’re not in a good mindset.”

Part of the process was quitting drinking and she has no regrets, saying it “is the best thing I’ve ever done.”

She reflected, “I really wanted to fix the things that were broken in me. I’m not perfect. I still make a lot of mistakes. I have bumps in the road, I fall down, I get back up again.”

Kelly continued, “This has been two years of me working on this. Figuring out if I wanted to be in this [Hollywood] industry, figuring out if I was even capable of even losing this weight. I did, and I figured out I wanted to keep going. I didn’t do this for anyone. It was a long process, and now I’m here and everybody is noticing.”
