LOS ANGELES, Jan. 3 (UPI) -- U.S. pop singer Carnie Wilson says she hopes to lose the weight she gained after kicking drugs and alcohol, and giving birth to two daughters.

TVGuide.com said the 43-year-old Wilson Phillips singer lost 150 pounds thanks to gastric bypass surgery in 1999, but has since gained much of it back. The television news Web site did not say what Wilson's current or target weights are.

"I've had so much stress in the last year so it's really a struggle," Wilson told Fox News.

"I'm definitely up in weight. I'm looking forward to getting an exercise routine again. It's like a daily decision," she said. "I can't smoke a joint. I can't have a glass of wine because I want 10 joints and 10 glasses of wine. ... That's my obsessive-compulsive and addictive behavior. I've really struggled since I've become sober. How do I balance that? How can I relax and not overeat? Because I have a lot of pressure in my life."

Wilson, who can be seen on Tuesday's edition of TV's "Wife Swap," is married to record producer Rob Bonfiglio and has two daughters -- Lola, 6, and Luciana, 2.
