Outspoken comedian Lisa Lampanelli has unveiled her dramatic weight loss.

The 51-year-old has lost a substantial amount of weight, thanks in part to a procedure known as gastric-sleeve surgery, In Touch reported on Thursday.

“I’ve lost a total of 106 pounds,” Lampanelli told In Touch. “I feel like I’ve reached the weight I’m supposed to be. I’m officially a skinny b----!”

On April 9, the once-overweight Lampanelli celebrated the one-year anniversary of the gastric-sleeve surgery. While the “Celebrity Apprentice” star never set a specific weight goal, she has relied on a rigorous exercise regimen and strict dieting to achieve her newly svelte physique.

Lampanelli concedes that she’s “a work in progress,” explaining that gastric-sleeve surgery isn’t a miracle cure for people wanting to lose weight. The comedian told In Touch that the solution lies in addressing existing culinary compulsions.

“I have to figure out my addiction issue and how I even got overweight in the first place,” Lampanelli said.

Still, Lampanelli has found plenty of ways to celebrate her loss of 106 pounds.

“One of the best parts of losing weight has been the clothing!” said Lampanelli, who now weighs in at 142 pounds. “I roll up to Macy's and go to the sales rack and see how much I can get for as little amount of money! It’s almost like a game for me!”

Besides her “Celebrity Apprentice” appearance, Lampanelli has established herself as one of the world’s best insult comics. Known for her aggressive, no-holds-barred style of comedy, the so-called “Queen of Mean” is a regular on Comedy Central’s infamous celebrity “roasts.”
