The 36-year-old reality star underwent gastric sleeve surgery in 2018 and had said she couldn't be happier with her decision to go under the knife for the procedure after she began gaining weight rapidly when she got sober in 2017.
"I got sober. I replaced drugs and alcohol with food; my body metabolised differently. Once I got sober, and I gained weight uncontrollably, it was insane. What the surgery did was give me a fighting chance," she says, speaking to Us Weekly magazine.
Although the surgery gave her the initial push she needed to lose weight, Kelly didn't follow her doctor's directions after her operation and therefore stopped seeing results.
"I lost, like, I want to say 35 pounds, 40 pounds (around 15kg-18kg). And then I stopped losing weight. I just stopped because I didn't listen to what they said. I just thought it was going to be a quick fix. I'd be done. I'd be skinny. [I thought I] didn't have to work out or do anything. I could not have been more wrong. You have to do every single thing that they tell you to do when you do the surgery, or it doesn't work," she adds.
Meanwhile, Kelly recently revealed she had suffered a relapse in her sobriety journey after four years but is now back on track.
