I Couldn't Have Said It Better Myself

One of my favorite Al Roker quotes:

“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.

  5. This is the truth I wish everyone would realize. I've been saying this very same thing to my husband all along. I used to smoke. I quit because for me it was easy-I didn't have to smoke to live. However, I can't just NOT eat. If only everyone understood.

  6. I wish more celebrities would come clean about having WLS. Maybe it would relieve some of the stigma attached to it.

  7. His words are so true. Too bad no one is listening.
