Houston's own Paul Wall recently revealed taking part in a massive weight loss surgery after he lost more than one hundred pounds. Paul Wall says that he had to get the surgery done after many people pointed out his weight.
"Honestly, when we were in Afghanistan and [reps for VH1's] Celebrity Fit Club were contacting [me] about coming on the show, that was a h*ll of a wake-up call," Wall said in an interview. "[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.'"
