Melissa McCarthy's Weight Loss: 'Ghostbusters' Actress Stopped Doing This And Started Dropping Pounds

Melissa McCarthy's weight loss happened in her effort to achieve a healthier version of herself. The Gilmore Girls star has been spotted looking a lot happier and healthier these days, and it's all because of her impressive body transformation. Although her journey was definitely hard, the Ghostbusters actress revealed that she stopped doing something that finally helped her quickly shed off the pounds.

The 47-year-old actress was completely aware that her previous weight was just too much for her body and age to handle. Instead of leaving things as they were and just keep going on with her life as an overweight woman, Melissa McCarthy finally decided to do something about her weight issue that might have saved her life.

While some Hollywood stars would easily prefer to skip the long process by going under the knife, Melissa McCarthy's weight loss was a result of her dedication and hard work. Just like any other diet secrets, the funny actress found one that works for her and stuck to it.

It's certainly not easy to drop off the pounds, especially when someone has been struggling with weight issues for a long time. So for Melissa McCarthy to achieve her new slimmer figure, the funny actress was left with no choice but to completely change her lifestyle and eating habits.

Working out also became a routine to Melissa McCarthy. The Bridesmaids star made sure to hire a trainer to keep motivated. The actress's trainer handpicked specific workouts that she enjoyed and would give her impressive results at the same time.

Now that Melissa McCarthy has finally figured out how to balance her new lifestyle, she eventually learned to loosen up. Although she still does all the necessary things for her regimen, like eating healthy and doing exercise, the Gilmore Girls star revealed that she has "stopped worrying about [losing weight]."

Surprisingly, not taking things too seriously appears to be working for Melissa McCarthy's weight loss journey. "I think there's something to kinda loosening up and not being so nervous and rigid about it that, bizarrely, has worked," she said.

Although Melissa McCarthy has never shared the exact weight that she lost, multiple reports revealed that the Ghostbusters actress has dropped 75 pounds.
