Melissa McCarthy weight loss has been very impressive and inspirational. The 45-year-old actress flaunted her new slimmer figure after reportedly dropping over 70 pounds.

Melissa McCarthy has lost an astonishing amount of weight, and she showed off her new figure in a fun and flirty pink dress at a Women In Comedy event on June 7.  Hollywood Take reports that Melissa McCarthy arrived at the Elle’s Women in Comedy event on Tuesday, wearing a bright pink Judy B. Swartz dress and a pair of Vince Camuto statement pumps.

After seeing the result of Melissa McCarthy weight loss, many have wondered how did she do it. Speaking to Extra, Melissa McCarthy may have not specifically shared her diet secrets, but she did credit her weight loss to changing her lifestyle and habits.

“No trick, nothing to tell, just super boring life. You bring it real down, you don’t do anything fun and you go to bed at 7:30 — that’s the trick,” Melissa McCarthy told Extra. She was probably joking, but there is definitely some truth in skipping happy hours and late night snacks.

The actress has been spotted looking a lot happier and healthier these days and it’s all because of Melissa McCarthy weight loss.

“I stopped over-analyzing, over-thinking, over-doing anything,” she shared to E! Online. “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.”

Some people may think that Melissa McCarthy weight loss is a result of the actress trying to fit in in Hollywood’s perception of beauty, but that is definitely not the case. Melissa McCarthy weight loss happened because she is trying to be a healthier version of herself for her family and not because she’s trying to impress other people.

“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 said on The Jess Cagle Interview back in April, as reported by 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.'”
