Comedian Lisa Lampanelli’s 106-pound weight loss is no laughing matter! Lampanelli, who had gastric-sleeve surgery in April 2012, says she has never looked or felt better.
The comedian and former Celebrity Apprentice contestant now eats much smaller portions after the procedure, which removed three-quarters of her stomach.
Along with eating better, Lisa Lampanelli says she has been working out, though she’s still working through her lifelong food addiction. She admitted, “I have to figure out my addiction issue and how I even got overweight in the first place.” Lampanelli added of her weight loss:
“I’ve lost a total of 106 pounds. I feel like I’ve reached the weight I’m supposed to be. I’m officially a skinny b**ch!”
The comedian’s 106 pound weight loss brought her weight from 248 pounds down to 142. And with her sleek new figure comes cute new outfits, which Lisa dished she now loves going shopping for. She explained, “One of the best parts of losing weight has been the clothing! I roll up to Macy’s and go to the sales rack and see how much I can get for a little amount of money! It’s almost like a game for me!”
Lisa Lampanelli added that the surgery isn’t a miracle fixer, though it certainly has helped her lose weight by forcing her to eat less. But the comedian willingly admitted she’s still “a work in progress.”
The comedian isn’t the only well-known figure to undergo weight loss surgery. Chris Christie recently admitted to having secret weight loss surgery in February. He did not disclose how much weight he has lost since the surgery, saying it was nobody’s business but his.
For Lisa, the operation was a success. She admitted she has struggled with her weight since the age of 18. But her story was so inspiring that her overweight husband, former nightclub owner Jimmy Cannizzaro, had the operation done two months after she did. Cannizzaro has also lost a significant amount of weight.
Now that she has lost 106 pounds, comedian Lisa Lampanelli added she isn’t worried about regaining the weight. Rather, she explained, “I’m keeping a close watch … the size I am right now is the size I was always meant to be.”
