From Fear and Despair to Health and HopeBook - 2001
Carnie Wilson's story is a journey from the darkness of emotional rejection, compulsive eating and morbid obesity into the light of health. When her weight climbed to over 300 pounds and she was faced with the prospect of early death, Wilson turned to weight-loss surgery, broadcasting the procedure live over the internet to an estimated 2.5 million people, in August of 1999. During that period, Wilson lost over 150 pounds, married the man of her dreams and embraced a new life of health and re-energized possibilities. Her story has inspired millions of obese people worldwide to investigate weight-loss surgery as a tool to help develop a healthier life.
