The former talk show host revealed she underwent gastric sleeve surgery in July hoping to shed the pounds after she suffered a heart attack in 2012.
“I did it to save my life,” Rosie said of the decision when speaking at the American Heart Association’s lunch in Detroit in February.
That same month, Rosie told Marlo Thomas her heart attack was “her most serious wake up call” to lose weight by changing her portion size, which she said wasn’t hard.

“When they tell you that you’re going to die, it changes something,” she explained. “It’s about portions and mindfulness… If I want a candy bar, sometimes I’ll just take a bite. Don’t deny yourself, but don’t eat more than you need.”
Well, we’re happy to see Rosie looking—and more importantly, feeling—better than ever!
