Paul Wall Sheds 100 Pounds After Weight Loss Surgery

Paul Wall wants the world to know that he’s embracing a healthier lifestyle, after shedding 100 excess pounds from his frame. Recent weight-loss surgery has finally given the Houston rapper control over his long-term battle with obesity.

In an interview with Ozone Magazine, Wall admitted that an offer from ‘VH1′s Celebrity Fit Club’ triggered the decision to undergo gastric sleeve surgery. “Honestly, when we were in Afghanistan and [representatives from 'VH1's] ‘Celebrity Fit Club’ were contacting [me] about coming on the show,” he explained. “That was a hell of a wake-up call. [Being fat] isn’t a secret. You can look in the mirror and try to hide it and cover it up, and it may work here or there, but there ain’t no shirt or hat you can put on or haircut you can get to hide the fact that you’re morbidly obese. That’s what the doctor said: I was ‘morbidly obese.’ I decided not to do [the show] but it was still a wake-up call to have people calling you saying, ‘Hey, you’re really, really fat.’”

Wall further detailed his decision to undergo gastric sleeve surgery, explaining that it is more effective than the popular lap band procedure, for overweight patients. “My weight has been up and down my whole life, so I wanted to do something to permanently fix the problem,” he said. “Since going back and forth on the drugs for years and taking diet pills, my metabolism was really gone.” Prior to his surgery, the 6-ft tall rapper weighed in at 320lbs.
