Meshel Laurie weight loss (How did Meshel Laurie lose weight?)

In 2021, she unveiled her remarkable weight reduction makeover. At the end of 2016, she opted for bariatric surgery (gastric bypass). She said having to go that far to restrain her body was uncomfortable, but she would rather be ashamed than not be able to walk. In some ways, she considers herself lucky to have received such strong messages from her body that she needed to restart her health burner while there was still time to do so.
