How gorgeous is Roseanne Barr looking these days? The star has been out and about and proudly revealing a trim physique, a truly fabulous chapter of her dramatic weight loss journey over the years. It can't be easy to be in the public eye while struggling with your weight, but it seems like Roseanne is finally at a healthy, happy place with her body. We couldn't be happier!
Roseanne's memorable and dramatic weight transformation makes us think back to the late '80s and early '90s, when she burst onto TV screens all across America as the loud, crazy matriarch of the loving, oh-so-real Connor family. She and the rest of the cast of 'Roseanne' felt like members of our own family! And Roseanne Barr, though she was playing a character, seemed so real and relatable to us back then.
Roseanne Barr's Weight Loss Journey
That may be why we can relate to the actress's weight struggles as well. Noticeably heavier back then, Roseanne admittedly didn't have the best eating or lifestyle habits. Then in the late 90s, she underwent gastric bypass surgery in which part of her digestive system was removed. Of course, maintaining weight loss after such a procedure still takes hard work, and Roseanne has said that she keeps it up the old-fashioned way.
"I'm just doing the things you're supposed to do," she revealed to US Weekly back in 2014. "You know, moving more, and eating less." Gotta love sensible advice that's easy to remember! It's pretty typical for Roseanne to just tell it like it is--and it gives us hope that if she can do it, we can too.
In recent months, Roseanne has stepped out looking noticeably more svelte with a thinner frame and tinier waistline. (Of course, she's sporting that bright, gorgeous smile, which always makes her look like she's just heard (or more likely, told!) a funny joke. She looks amazing, and these newly surfaced photos prove it.
