Rosie O'Donnell Dishes on 50-Pound Weight Loss After Bariatric Surgery

Rosie O'Donnell, comedienne and former cohost on "The View," opened up about her recent weight loss this week, saying that although a surgery helped her lose nearly 50 pounds, she doesn't feel sexy yet.

O'Donnell, 52, had a vertical gastric sleeve last summer. The procedure, along with improved eating habits and exercise, helped her lose 46 pounds, according to Access Hollywood.

"It's very different than when you think of bypass surgery. It's newer," O'Donnell said this week on the gossip show. "They remove two-thirds of your stomach but everything else stays intact, and as a result of that you can’t hold as much food. But the very interesting part is that in that other two-thirds are where all the hunger hormones live . . . The biggest surprise, is that you're not hungry, right?"

Last month, O'Donnell tweeted before and after mug shots showing off her slimmed-down face after the weight loss.

O'Donnell told Us Weekly that she dropped from 230 pounds to 190 after the July surgery, which she scheduled after having a heart attack in 2012.

The comedienne also said that, while she's feeling many positive things from the weight loss, sexy is not one of them.

"Sexy? No," O'Donnell told Access Hollywood. "No, I feel better that like my tummy's not in the way, you know, when everybody's naked. But no. I feel maybe less shame a little bit."

She made sure to note that her weight loss was achieved through a combination of surgery, a healthy diet, and exercise.

"Now [bariatric surgery is] a tool, it's not an answer," she said. "You can't just get surgery and go 'I'm done' and keep eating the way you did. You have to change the way you eat, you have to exercise."
