Dolores Catania doesn’t come across as someone who has a weight problem, but it turns out that Real Housewives of New Jersey star felt so “unhappy and uncomfortable” about her weight that she underwent a weight loss procedure.
It all started back in July at a Bravo party when Dolores says “I felt really self-conscious about my weight;” admitting “I had gained over 20 pounds from stress and eating late after filming. I just let myself go.”
The RHONJ star decided to try the Obalon Balloon System to lose weight, telling OK! Magazine “Obalon is a nonsurgical treatment where you swallow one balloon each month for three months. They expand and float in your stomach and prevent you from gorging. When you hit your goal weight, they get deflated and removed.”
So, why did Dolores go such extreme measures?
Dolores admits that being on reality TV and owning a gym “added a certain amount of pressure” to look a certain way.
“Portion control is my biggest issue. I overeat. I eat too fast. I ‘m not conscious of what I’m doing. Some people that eat to live; I live to eat,” Dolores explains, making it clear that hitting the gym harder isn’t her problem.
Ultimately, Dolores would like to lose “15 to 20 pounds.”
“I’m 5-feet-4, so I want to stay under 140. Right now I’m 156. If I can lose 15 to 20 pounds I’ll be happy,” Dolores confesses.
I’m sorry, I’m all for people feeling the best about themselves, but I don’t think Dolores needed this type of procedure to lose weight. First off, I think Dolores looks great as is but I don’t know this sounds like she’s just being paid to sell this product. But you know what, whatever, if doing this will make her happy and feel better about herself I’m all for it. I’m curious to see how this works for Dolores and see if she hits her goal.
