“In this country, if you have an alcohol problem or a drug problem, you can get treatment, if you have a weight problem, it’s lack of willpower: Just push away from the table, tubby, and you’d lose that weight. But you can stop drinking; you can stop sticking a needle in your arm. You cannot not eat.”
I wish all celebrities would be so open about their weight loss surgery as Al is about his surgery. They have the opportunity to educate and share their experiences with their fans.
