Lauren Goodger is keen to have a gastric band fitted to help her lose weight
Lauren Goodger wants a gastric band.
The 'Only Way is Essex' star is tired of fluctuating from a size 8 to a 14 and she thinks having surgery is the only way to keep her weight down for good because dieting makes her miserable.
She told Closer magazine: "When I was doing my fitness DVD, I was so strict and I saw results. But I'm a sociable person and it made me miserable to stay in all the time.
"I fell off the wagon and I've put weight back on. I reckon I'm a size 12 now and I'm scared I might get bigger. I don't know what else to do. Go back to the gym, diet, and hate my life?
"I've spoken to friends about liposuction or a gastric band. I'd do anything like that if it meant I saw results fast.
"I'm sick of yo-yoing. I know I can have the best body. I'm curvy and go in and out in the right places but I just need that head start.
"I've tried everything else so surgery seems like the right option."
Lauren finds it tricky to lose weight because she feels like she'd have to stop socialising to stick to a diet.
She said: "I love my nights out. I used to be guilty of staying in a bit because I didn't want to be photographed. But that's not me. I need to socialise."
And the 30-year-old star admitted she's been criticised for gaining weight by her jailbird boyfriend Joey Morrison, who she has been dating since April 2016.
She said: "Joey always tells me I'm beautiful but he knew me when I was at my slimmest and a size 8.
"He says, 'Why can't you get back to that again?
"But he's a man and doesn't understand it's harder for women to lose weight because we have more body fat.
"He's supportive, but he's a very fit, active person, even while in prison, so he thinks I should just do the same."
