She started losing weight after doing one significant thing.


Melissa McCarthy is currently on a high after the release of her film Life of the Party, and she opened up about the laughs and struggles of her life in a candid interview for People's latest cover story.

McCarthy looks stunningly different on the cover of the issue, dressed in a pair of pale blue jeans, and a matching blue shirt over a white crop top

The comedienne radiates confidence in her new body, which is the result of losing a lot of weight.

Even before her weight loss success, McCarthy had learned from her mother not to care about other people's opinions.


Her mother taught her to turn a deaf ear to what people had to say about her looks and work hard to fulfill her dreams instead.

The first time she lost she publicly spoke about crossing a milestone in her weight loss journey was in 2015 when she was interviewed by Life & Style.


The interview was conducted after her film Spy succeeded at the box office. Speaking about losing 50 pounds, she revealed that the one thing that triggered weight loss was her decision to stop worrying about it.

It was also reported that the actress had been following a diet based on high-protein. McCarthy confessed that she did slip off the diet a few times, but she did not fret over it.

Physical training was a part of her preparation for the role in the comedy film, and she also got acquainted with a few martial art techniques during the shoot.

A year later, she made it to the cover of Redbook, which reported on the actress' beliefs on body image that have shaped the way she dealt with her being overweight.

In the interview, she expressed that a good proportion of American women were size 14 and above, and they should not be judged by the way they look.

Rather, in her view, fashion and beauty are about feeling comfortable and happy in one's own skin, a lesson that she has also passed on to her daughters.
