For Carnie Wilson, hopefully the second time is the charm.

The singer has revealed that she underwent lap-band surgery in January, reports People.

"It was the right decision for me and I'm doing really well so far," Wilson tells the magazine. "It's all about taking good care of yourself."

The 43-year-old mother-of-two has already lost 30 pounds since having the procedure, which involves placing a silicone band around the stomach in order to minimize food consumption.

This is somewhat familiar territory for Wilson, who underwent gastric bypass surgery in 1999 and subsequently lost 150 pounds, only to regain some of it back later after becoming pregnant with her daughters, Lola, 6, and Luciana, 2.

Meanwhile, Wilson recently reunited with Chynna Phillips and sister Wendy Wilson to record a new Wilson Phillips album titled Dedicated (due out on April 3) as well as shoot Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On, the group's upcoming reality show premiering April 8 on the TV Guide Network.
