Lauren Manzo Drops 30 Pounds!

by at . Comments

Lauren Manzo has never worn a bikini.

But, having dropped 30 pounds in the last 10 months, the recurring player on The Real Housewives of New Jersey tells Us Weekly this is her new life goal. How did the reality star accomplish the feat?

She underwent lap band surgery in September - "I hated myself... I was depressed," Manzo says - to get rid of the initial 20, had the band loosened in May, went on a strict diet, worked out six days per week ... and then dropped 10 more.

"Getting the lap band was the best thing I've done in my life," says Lauren, who adds she feels "amazing" these days, but also warns of the procedure: "It's not a miracle button that lets you eat whatever you want."

The Bravo star hopes to lose 35 more pounds and credits her strong willpower, along with new skills in the kitchen, for helping her keep the weight off.

"I like food. I can't drink liquid egg whites for the rest of my life. So I've learned a lot of great ways to cook now."
