For nearly two years now, the Academy Award nominee, 45, has been on an impressive weight loss journey! She’s thinner than ever, with a new report suggesting she has already shed 75 pounds — and the secret to her slim-down success is shockingly accessible!(HOW?? Melissa McCarthy’s Weight Loss Secret Revealed!)
McCarthy also insisted last summer that there was no magical secret to her weight loss. “I truly stopped worrying about it,” McCarthy said in June. She continued: “I stopped over-analyzing, over-thinking, over-doing anything. I kinda went back to when I was pregnant and I just stopped constantly being worried about it, and I think there’s something to kinda loosening up and not being so nervous and rigid about it that, bizarrely, has worked. I could’ve figured that out before 44, but whatever.”(Melissa McCarthy Garcinia Cambogia Diet)
Indeed, throughout her weight loss journey, McCarthy has maintained a healthy attitude. She slimmed down solely for her health, not because she wanted to look super skinny. And she wants women to feel good about themselves. So she makes sure her Seven7 clothing line is available in all sizes.
In addition to inspiring women to slim down, the Ghostbusters star wants to make a ripple in the fashion industry. “Women come in all sizes. Seventy percent of women in the United States are a size 14 or above, and that’s technically ‘plus-size,’ so you’re taking your biggest category of people and telling them, ‘You’re not really worthy.’ I find that very strange,” she told Refinery29. She wants her line to be uncategorized, giving women the ability to shop together without feeling segregated.
McCarthy also continues to speak out against the idea of “plus sizes.” She feels that label unfairly segregates certain women.”Every time someone says ‘you make a plus-size line’ I just correct them and say, ‘I make clothes for women,'” she recently told E! News. “I’m not making a plus-size line. If a plus-size store, or if a store of certain sizes buys those, that’s what going in there. But on my website … I’m just making women’s clothing. There’s an obsession with categorizing.”(See Melissa McCarthy Height and Weight Stats)
