The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Lauren Manzo has complained about being overweight for several seasons now, but has always eaten sausage, cheese and other fatty foods. When this current season started, she was trying to diet with everyone eating several delicious foods in front of her which made her cranky. However, she has shared several pictures of herself after dieting and she has lost a tremendous amount of weight. According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, Lauren claimed to have lost the weight from dieting and exercise only, but now it has come out that she has had a procedure done to help with the weight loss.
The website reveals that Lauren had the lap band surgery in September, which is the same procedure her father had several years ago. Caroline Manzo has tried to work out with her daughter as shown on The Real Housewives of New Jersey but Lauren Manzo complained more about the gym than anything else.
So, why hasn't Lauren been honest about the procedure? Well, she didn't want to tell people because she didn't exactly go the healthy way to lose weight. She took what many saw as the easy way out. However, the dieting procedure worked for Lauren because she has lost 30 pounds and she is planning to lose another 35 pounds.
Should Lauren be an inspiration to people since she took the easy way out by getting surgery? While it is good for Lauren that she is losing weight, getting surgery to lose weight isn't the healthiest way to go.
