The actress, who's been open about her decision to eat healthier lately, has showed off the fruits of her labor in recent months, but fans really want to know she managed to drop the pounds. Scroll down for details about the transformation in her own words.
Melissa McCarthy's weight loss only strengthened her already healthy body image.
"I feel sexiest when I feel comfortable, when I feel most myself, when I’m not trying to be anything other than who I am," she previously told People magazine. "[I love] all of it: my flaws, my shortcomings, my body parts that you're like, 'Well, couldn’t that be better?' I think, especially after having kids, I go, 'Well, the alternative is pretty bad. I’ll take me as I am.'”

How did Melissa McCarthy lose weight?
"I truly stopped worrying about it," the Oscar nominee told Life & Style. "I think there's something to kinda loosening up and not being so nervous and rigid about it that, bizarrely, has worked."
What does Melissa McCarthy weigh?
Although the 46-year-old has never revealed what number appears on the scale (and frankly, it's nobody else's business but her own), it was reported that she dropped around 50 pounds. "It may be the best thing I've ever done," she told Life & Style. "I feel amazing!"
Lifesum fitness expert and celebrity trainer to the stars, Joselynne Boschen, has praised Melissa’s commitment to her new diet and attitude, telling Life & Style, "When it comes to making incredible changes in appearance, like Melissa has, consistency is key. The first two weeks are the hardest, but as soon as your cravings are gone and you've established a consistent routine, you're in the clear!"
