The former Celebrity Apprentice contestant underwent the surgical procedure that involved removing three-quarters of her stomach.
She credits her weight loss to eating smaller portions, eating better and working out.
She does admit that she still struggles with her lifelong food addiction. "I have to figure out my addiction issue and how I even got overweight in the first place."
She shared that she lost a massive 106 pounds after the procedure: "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 *****!"
Lampanelli now weighs 142 pounds, down from her previous weight of 248 pounds. The comedian shared that she loves shopping for her new figure. "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!"
The gastric-sleeve surgery forced her to eat less, but the comedian does not credit everything to surgery. She described her weight-loss as "a work in progress."
Lampanelli has struggled with her weight since the age of 18. Her weight loss success inspired her husband Jimmy Cannizzaro to also go under the knife. He too lost a lot of weight after the procedure.
