Lisa Lampanelli reveals her 80 lbs. weight loss.

Foul-mouthed comedian Lisa Lampanelli has got a new lease on life after dropping 80 pounds, and she wants everyone to know it.

Lampanelli, 51, revealed her new size 12 body to In Touch in September, months after undergoing gastric sleeve surgery in April. 

The surgery works to reduce the size of the stomach so that the patient will feel full faster whey they eat. "I feel so much healthier," the comedian tells the magazine. “I was such an overeater. Now, I get full quickly — at three, four bites, I have to stop.”

She reveals that at her heaviest, she weighed 248 pounds, saying it was dangerous to her health: “The size I am right now is the size I was always meant to be.”

The comedian, who has been struggling with weight since she was 18, is also set to stop by "The Dr. Oz show" Wednesday to spill even more details about her drastic weight loss.

According to People, Lampanelli revealed to Dr. Oz that overeating was her "addiction," and she had done everything to lose the weight naturally: "I got sick of trying everything. I tried every single thing imaginable -- diet, exercise. I even bought a house on the health spa property and I still gained weight."

After the surgery, she says her relationship with food is much healthier, allowing her to eat what she wants in small portions: "I order food like a normal human being. If I'm out to lunch I'm going to order three courses like everybody else. I'm not going to feel like some kind of freak."
