In an environment where people who indulge in fat-shaming are slammed for their cruelty, comedian Lisa Lampanelli has a unique problem: She's being criticized for having lost her wit along with more than 100 pounds, reported TMZ on December 3.
Lisa is proud of her weight loss, even posting her photo on Instagram on December 3 to show off the results off her gastric bypass surgery. However, she notes that she still must diet carefully to keep off the weight.
But now she's being penalized for her slim-down success, with fans tweeting her to eat more.
"Comedy is the only professional that a size 6 is considered too skinny!" tweeted Lisa in response on December 3.
However, her fans seem seriously concerned, with tweets such as "DON'T lose any more!"
So how did the Queen of Mean become the Queen of Lean?
"I got sick of trying everything. I tried every single thing imaginable – diet, exercise," Lisa told Dr. Mehmet Oz on a recent visit to his talk show. "I even bought a house on the health spa property and I still gained weight."
The surgery that she chose limits how much food she can consume, and Lisa emphasizes that it is a tool, not a "miracle" weight loss solution.
"For 32 years – from 18 to 50 – I tried everything on the planet, and once I had a clean slate with that I said, 'You know what? Nothing's working for me. I'm going to treat this like the addiction that it is. I'm going to get this surgery and use it as a tool. That's all it is, a tool to help me get over it,' " she told Dr. Oz.
