Melissa McCarthy is known as much for her fuller figure as she is for her acting skills and is one of a very small number of big screen stars who wears a plus size but it looks like things are changing for Melissa McCarthy who has noticeably slimmed down recently.
Melissa McCarthy is on the front cover of People magazine showing off her new figure and massive 50 pound weight loss and she has revealed the secret to her weight loss success.
As she works to promote her latest film Spy, Melissa McCarthy is also letting her fans know about how she managed to shed the pounds and feel fitter and healthier than ever before.
Speaking to People magazine Melissa McCarthy joked that she had lost weight through a very unique way: “I’m crying off the pounds!” she joked but in reality it was far more to do with changing her eating habits that had the biggest impact on her weight.
She said that the key to the weight loss came when she changed the way she thought about herself and her weight: “I truly stopped worrying about it. I stopped over-analyzing, over-thinking, over-doing anything. I kinda went back to when I was pregnant and I just stopped constantly being worried about it and I think there’s something to kinda loosening up and not being so nervous and rigid about it that, bizarrely, has worked. I could’ve figured that out before 44, but whatever.”
It is reported that the star has lost a massive 50 pounds on her new diet and that she has been following a low carb regime to help her to drop the dress sizes but there is no doubt that a lot of diet and weight loss success only occurs when a person has the right attitude to the process.
During the new film Spy, Melissa McCarthy plays a spy and has to do a series of stunts which have been made easier thanks to her weight loss.
While for some larger women it can be difficult to find clothes that make you look and feel great, this is not a problem for Melissa thanks to her having her own fashion line Seven7.
Melissa spoke about her passion for fashion: “From grade school until age 20, I had one thought in my head, which was doing women’s clothing,” McCarthy adds. “To get to come back to it, is kind of crazy. It’s pretty dreamy.”
Whatever he size Melissa McCarthy continues to be a great inspiration to women all over the world and she proves that it is possible to have it all!
