Carnie Wilson has lost nearly 40 pounds since she started a strict diet and exercise program this spring, after she topped out at 208 pounds. The 5-foot-3 singer is now 20 pounds Away from Her weight-loss goal. Carnie is determined to reach 150 pounds by October and then start trying to have a second child with husband Rob Bonfiglio.
What has your husband said about your new look?
He always says, "Keep it up, baby!" He's very proud. He's seen me go up and down. He just wants me to be healthy.
Tell us about your new clothing line for plus-sized women.
It's probably the most exciting thing I'm ever going to be involved in. I know what it's like to be all sizes, and I have some really great things up my sleeve - no pun intended!
What are your baby plans?
We're going to start trying in October. I'm going to mount my husband! [laughs] I have friends who are pregnant, and I want to be pregnant so badly. Two more months to go - it can't come soon enough. We want a baby in my tummy right away.
How will that affect your weight loss?
My ob-gyn said when you're eating this way, you'll have minimal weight gain. It was very difficult having Lola. I just kept gaining. I'm going to feel better in my next pregnancy. I have this weird feeling I'm going to have twins. My sister just had twins. My grandmother was a twin. It's a serious possibility!
