After making the decision to eat healthier seven months ago, "Glee" star Amber Riley has been hitting the red carpet - such as the one rolled out for 26th birthday party in Las Vegas, seen above, last weekend - with a slimmer physique.
The actress told People magazine that chronic stomach pains prompted her to rethink her diet last July.
Instead of fast food and burgers, which Riley said were "attacking" her stomach, "I decided I was going to make a change and eat healthier," she recalled.
Her new focus on feeding her body healthier fare caused Riley to drop two dress sizes.
If you're a "Glee" fan, you may have noticed the costume shift - Riley says they've had to "revamp the wardrobe...they bought a lot of new clothes for me, and we have to take in a lot of my pants and dresses."
But the star says all of that was an unintended side effect.
Although she's now a "lot more comfortable in dresses, especially gowns," Riley adds that her new outlook on eating wasn't about weight.
"I've always been comfortable with my size," she says. "I just decided to get healthy."

CONGRATULATIONS LADY!!! I AM PROUD OF YOU! HATERS WILL ALWAYS HATE....YOU KEEP DOING YOU...ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK!!!
Isn't anyone monitoring this thread? You need to shut down these ugly, racist posts.
Yes she is still overweight but SHE IS STILL WORKING ON IT!! If you don't like the way she looks then don't watch the show.
I am an old bag, and was just feeling sluggish and unhealthy. Just wanted to feel better, so I cut out the junk food and coca-cola, and stopped eating most potatoes, bread, pasta and rice. I eat everything else and pay no attention to amounts. Wasn't even thinking about losing weight. Wow! I lost 12 pounds in a month! and I have lost about six more over the past three months. Every now and then I splurge, but actually now most junk food is tasteless to me and most of the time Coke just tastes too sweet.
Amber kudos to you. You look great! To all the haters you can only give off what you are. I feel sorry for you. I don't know anyone who has not made the decision to do something different. We all can be better people. Evidently the haters have a longer road to travel. Peace :=)
She not only fat, but she ugly too. In the picture, she is doing that pathetic fatchick trick of crossing her ankles to look slimmer.... It doesn't work when you are that fat. She is so fat, she makes Fat Albert look like Slim Pickens.
She is still fine as hell. You do your thing.
I guess the only thing that offsets these hateful comments are the fact that WHATEVER size she is, she still has more talent than any of you could ever HOPE to have. AND she has the self confidence to not be bothered by idiots that think they are superior because they can rag on someone else.
Only fools will vote for Obama.
How does that relate to the girl from Glee dropping weight?
Stay on topic, please.
Someone needs to vet these comments.
still a piggy, oink oink.
For someone like that is a little over weight it is hard. But i am losing it for me and my health. I dont have any problems with my health right now. But some of the tthings you all are saying are hurtful. Just because you are one of those skinny B****'s dont mean you have to talk about some one else like that. That is what makes people want to go and kill there self. Just a thought
Seriously, ignore them. The only thing they want to do is drag people down and hold them back- otherwise they would say positive and encouraging things. They are cowards who hide behind a shield of hatred toward others to excuse their own failures and missteps in life. You keep on working toward your goal, and I have confidence you will reach it. And both before and after you have met that goal please remember: you are a person worthy of love, dignity and respect.
I have heard that some kinds of fast food actually have chemicals in them that make you hungrier. So if she cut out the fast food (maybe the diet soda too), then she might also be less hungry and eat less overall as a result.
And let me say, I am absolutely disgusted by about half of the comments on this thread. What a bunch of trolls!
The Oscars is a program that is set up to give glory to certain people. What people do not understand is that the devil is the god of this world and he has said that everything in his power, all the people that are of this world.
In St Luke 4:5, “And the devil, taking him up unto an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.”
From that scripture it is very clear that people are under the power of Satan and Satan gives people great riches and great fame so they will worship him. People think of the devil that is one who creates murder and rape, evil things. They’re not aware that Satan affects all the people’s lives. Whether it be doctors or lawyers, politicians, police, they’re all controlled by the bad spirit. That’s why Jesus said his kingdom is not of this world. People who enjoy this world are doing it because they believe in what the devil is presenting. Satan is a hater of God and he and his followers have an end.
As far as the Oscars, that is the work of the devil because it is about stories that are lies. It’s not true, it’s stories that people made up; and Satan is the father of the lie as it says in St John 8:44, “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
So when you go in and watch a movie you’re watching the lies of the devil. They glorify one another and they’re not giving glory to the Creator.

It's the sad truth in Hollywood, they don't like or take well to larger women. I love the same saying "oh I am very comfortable with my body" but still lost like 50 lbs. This is a vain business that feeds off beauty and 'NOT" from the inside. I think she looks great personally and have and I do believe people should be the wa they want to be, we're all made very different. What I don't think it's right is the way they always do this..OH I LOVE MY BODY and blah, blah. blah...more like producers, directors, etc....sweetheart you're great for the movie but need to drop a few pounds. That's the nature of the beast....
First of all Cashun, you have to be more than just a little fat to have that surgery and neither of those women you mentioned excep for Star Jones was big enough to qualify for it. Second of all, she is not claiming anything other than cutting out fast food for her weight loss. I have an aunt who had the surgery and the weight falls off so fast it is almost scary. I don't think that is the case with Amber or Jennifer. (And Star Jones actually admitted to the surgery by the way.) I don't think it matter what a person does to lose weight as long as they try and are successful. It makes me sick to see overweight people being attacked this way. Yes obesity is a choice just like being gay or lesbian is and attacking them is just another form of racism. If ONE chooses not to be fat or gay or whatever that is THEIR choice. It does not give them the right to make fun of OTHERS. What happened to be encouraging and polite and respectful of the choices that other people make? what happened to being supportive? With that being said well done Amber for making a life changing decision. No matter what you did to lose it or what you say you did to lose it you did it and it's no one else business.
I am sorry, but one does not 'choose' to be gay.
I think she looks fine. At least she not a walking skeleton. The only thing more unhealthy than being a contestant on The Biggest Loser is walking around with most of your bones poking through your skin. She is on her way to making healthy decisions and she looks great for it. I am sure she will continue to change if she stays on this course. Congrats i say to her.
Why are all black woman FAT? As a black man, this is very yucky pooh. That is why I bang the white hos ... They smell stinky when thy iz thiner.
I wonder what she is eating in its place, and whether there are any tips on how to get quick to prepare healthy food. I'm really not sure why people go on articles like this to scream the word fat over and over again- I guess they're just desperate to scream their desired superiority to the world? Thanks but no thanks- mean people suck.
Here is a tip for quick healthy food: Fresh fruit. You can throw it in your bag and when the mood strikes, all you have to do is peel and eat. Depending on the fruit, you may not even have to peel it.
Though it's always wise to eat healthy, I don't care how Amber looks. Her voice is AMAZING!
She is still a very large cow
Ummmm I just watched Glee this week and she looked as fat as she ever did. Where's the weight loss? Don't see it at all. Fail!
Yes, you did fail. Go back and watch season 1. I could tell the difference this week when I watched, before I ever read this article.
Shame on all your trailer trash mothers for raising you to be so nasty...
Good for her. Being confident, healthy and successful are the greatest things in life. I hope she is able to continue on her quest for a healthier lifestyle and maybe she can promote it on her popular TV show. I think she's a good example for many African American women & girls who struggle with weight and don't have enough role models.
OK turn around and lets see the ass!
Personally I'm looking forward to the Girls of Glee Playboy spread.............. 'cmon Brittany!!!!!!!!!
Having glanced through these comments, I am highly disturbed by the frequency of rude and judgmental comments – but they are common on any article regarding weight loss. Negative commentators should be ashamed of their absolute disregard for other human beings. I agree with @RL that it must be nice to spew hate with anonymity on the internet and I am sad for you.
That said – I am happy for Ms. Riley and her quest to be healthier. She is beautiful and talented no matter what her weight is and I'm glad she's getting healthier while remaining a positive role model for the girls who look up to her.
I guess all of the haters and racists making comments about this young woman are perfect human specimens (DOUBT IT). It is nice to hide behind an anonymous name and spew your hate .
It's great that she is both comfortable with her self-image, but also desires to become healthier. It's the perfect combo- it's when you leave one of the two out that you get problems with either depression or health issues. Way to go!
Rule number one. If you are on the heavy side, never, never, wear anything that's too close to the neck line. Deep V-neck would give the illusion that she has neck, not just the head that attaches to the body. Kudos to her for losing the weight, whatever her real reason is, it's not my concern.
Exactly. A major fashion blunder. Why don't these folks have a stylist.
Wow. Who knew there were so many jerks in the world.
Lose at least 50 more pounds.
Gawd Dayum, that is one fugly grill on that big girl!
I agree with u Cashun Please. Alot people r having that surgery then swear up and down that they r eating right, exercising, r using (weight watchers,jenny craig, and nutri system)
to lose weight. Its ashamed that the people in US would truly believe anything that celebrities say today. When that head is bigger than their body structure is possible that they had that surgery r lipo suctions and u dont have to b 600 r 700 lbs to have this surgery. U only have to be a 100 lbs over weight r have a health issue to have this surgery. I hope that people will stop believing everything they see on TV cause they tell u half the truth and the other half the public would never know until it leaks out.

Adele is still fifty times her size...good lord Adele is a bigg'in
To the honey imitator....i understand u spend a fortune 2 obtain my features...but u want my name 2.....
@person....who put u incharge? tryin to be all up in others comments when no one gives a f u k about ur inbred povs....so go catch the shortbus and dont forget ur spam sammich..u f k n ck suckin loser
What a bunch of mind dead phobic a holes
I agree. Stupid individuals!
Wow, some people are mean spirited. It is rude to obnoxiously comment on a person's weight, arms, face, or other physical characteristics. Who cares what her reasons are for deciding to eat more healthy-whether it is to alleviate stomach pains, for healthy weight maintenance, or any other reason. For those who watch Glee, this week's episode reminds viewers that people should be more conscientious of the ramifications of writing hurtful things online. It's not amusing or intelligent. Amber is an amazing singer and that's what I find noteworthy.
Sounds like something a fat person would say
I bet you're Adele
I just measured my penis..its almost 14 inches long...my balls are big as tennis balls boyyyyeeee....deep dickin is my middle name..ask mi agin and i tell ya the same....lol
What a fricken fairy. Just cuz u pound lil boyz in da poop chute, doesn't mean we wanna hear your lame comment twice! Go schob another knob...kneel and bob!!
Thats nothing..i just measured my penis and its almost 14 inches long..my nuts are as big as tennis balls...write a blob bout dat boyyyyeeeee
Ok. You are right. I luv to slurp da milky goo right off dem meat stix! Any monster sized jig-a-boo can slide it right into my keister!!
In other words, so inadequate that no woman would ever want you, but you're a legend in your own miniscule mind. Sad sad sad that you have no real opportunities and have to fabricate porn in a public forum. Cowardly, too.
Don't be hatin on me just cuz I be fugly and a dy-ko! C-mon. I luve dem. Jig-a-boo chicas!!
Ok people. stop making fun of her.that is just ridiculous. youre probably one of those people who sit at your computer all day, and trash talk other peoples accomplishments. youre just jealous that she actually did something about her figure. that takes alot of confidence. to shut up and get a life.

shoot, down here in the holler, if ya want to lose sum wate, we just drop ya by the gator pool. u swim & run so fast, that weight falls right off, or the gator bites your azz, witch ever comes first. u lose pounds either way.
Everyone has problem each other to blame on amber riley because she wants to start a fresh life and come on everyone write on negative comments bout her so time to grow up people. It is not urs decision. It is her life and decision. Stop be bully.. Get a life people. I'm happy for amber riley because she can do it for herself I respect that. Everyone u are all of racists and bullies in USA I never see that way duh. Time to change.
Grow up. fat . skinny. black. white. who cares?
We should care.. like most things, we learn from our parents and educating people to eat better and healthier will help our society in many ways. Being obese causes diabetes and some cancers and high blood pressure and many cardiovascular problems and heart disease. These health ussues are becoming an epidemc in this country and the associated health care cost will crush our economy and health care system if people are ignorant or don't care about it now. 40% of our children are already over-weight and headed towards obesity.
Look people.....this cow aint workin' out an eatin' right. Neither is Jennifer Hudson or Star Jones. These broads got the damn "fat girl surgery" and you all know it. Look at her arms, and her big as head.....LoL!!! Damn you people are stupid. Thats why so many people get took advantage of nowadays by different schemes and scams. The U.S, is in real trouble man.....I see it comin' You morons will believe anything!!! Oh and by the way......I'm black so don't try and use the race card. I just call it like I see it.........
Actually, Weight Watchers (the weight loss program that Jennifer Hudson endorses) has been very successful in helping many people lose weight sensibly, including my mother, a couple of cousins, and a few friends.
totally agree-I don't know about this chick because she isn't losing weight THAT fast, but Jennifer Hudson definitely had surgery–how fast she lost it is an indicator–normal dieting does not do that
Sock....you are so wrong. My g/f dropped 75 lbs on weight watchers, eating healthy and exercising. She looks great now...and it was all done in a year. Healthy weight loss is 2-3 lbs a week...a person could essentially lose 150 lbs in a year and it would be considered healthy weight loss.
I laugh at arrogant pee ricks like you....
Damn dude, being harsh on someone who is trying to make better choices and be healthier. You are the lame one. Get a life. I don't know this actress but I applaud her efforts. She needs support not idiots like you hating.
Cashun, you don't know what you are talking about. I join the others here who point out to you that Weight Watchers, which is both a style of eating (real food, not special "diet food") and sensible exercising, DOES work. I myself lost 70 lbs on it, and it took me just under a year. Very safe, 2-3 pounds a week (slower as I got smaller). It's a healthy way to get one's weight under control and is easy to do. I've kept the weight off for over 2 years now and see no reason it will ever come back, because I don't eat the way I used to when I was obese. No surgery was involved, although some was avoided (knees).
She still fat...ijs
And you're an I-D-I-O-T!!!!! Get a f2923n!! life
I applaud you for making the choice to change your diet! Anyone making fun of her are plain idiots!! She knows she made bad choices..that's why she changed her food choices..god I feel sorry for any of your children if they get fat! Rude people!!
I iz one crazy jig-a-booo freak. I luv dem ladies and just wanna chomp sum boxx!! All u dy-kos....let's pound each other silly with a monster strap-on!!
How much does it cost for white ppl to take fat out of their azzez n inject it into their lips....
A lot longer than it takes people to figure out you're a racist. This isn't a black person/white person issue!
To all of the flat azzez, pale, thin white trash on this site...go continue 2 tan, get ur butt implants, fat injected n ur lips....i mean I just love it u post negative comment abt blacks..but spend a freaking fortune in an attempt 2 look black
Because black people don't do ANYthing to look white, right? No, no skin bleaching or expensive chemical hair relaxers.
Quit being racist. You'll feel a lot better about yourself.
I iz a fairy and I iz a fruit !! I luv dem dudes and I luv to recruit....all da young boyz dat just be new, to dis gay stuff which they don't have a clue. I'll hit da poop shute and pack dat fudge, when I pound dat rear it will barely budge. Cuz I want them plumpers and dem lil dongs, when I slide it in I will bust out a song! Give me dem jigs and I will swallow it whole, bend me over and then I'll smoke your pole!!
I continue to post the lamest video links cuz I am a fairy and a flamin fruit! Just cuz I like to take a monster jig-a-boo schlong in my poop chute!! I will schlob your knob any day of da week!!
Momma fixes fast food fer paw n me. It don't tak her long, giss thatz y itz called fast food.
Anyone willing to post something as obnoxious as you just did needs serious therapy.
Now all she gots to do is cut out the fried food......fry chicken, ribsa and so on.
I always confuse her with Precious.
Is that it n igger and fat jokes?you so suuuuuck.
What is your point Lena? Why would you use shuch a word in this day and age?
She was morbidly obese and is trying to lose weight which is a great thing. If this picture is an after photo, she still needs to lose some more weight, I would think, if for nothing other than her future health. The only issue I have with obese and morbidly obese people is the strain of the health care system because of all of the related health problems with being that overweight and I don't think I should help pay higher insurance premiums for the added costs of others because of smoking and obesity if i am trying to be healthy.
Bigot? Yeah, I thought so.
WHAT an ugly personality you have! Pathetic.
oh who are you trying to kid – you wanted to stop the junk food so you could slim down because you are fat.........and unintended side effect ......bull Sh____t dont apologize for not wanting to look like a fat cow and protect the fragile karmas of the "curved" group (fat chicks).
You still have doughboy arms though...better hit the gym.
Hard, but true. Who is she kidding!
MadCityBabe....................Your an idiot. Shut your mouth and go back to eating your tofu already. Her reasons for wanting to eat healthy aren't any of your business.
Could you be a bigger jerk? I didn't think so.
I know it's hard to believe, but there really are people out there who are very happy being heavier. I have a friend who really is that type of person. She's actually made lifestyle changes to avoid weight loss when her weight started dropping too low for her taste. She just really likes being curvy. To each their own.
@MadCityBabe – you are a lousy excuse of a human being. Yes, she's overweight. She's still overweight and not just her arms. But two dress sizes equates to about 20 lbs, which is a huge improvement for health and makes everything much easier on the knees and feet and hip joints as well. Who the f*** are YOU to say such nasty things. Probably a tub who can't get your own weight under control so you take jabs at people who are trying to make a positive change. And before you launch into a puerile tirade at me accusing me of being overweight, I'm five foot eight and I wear a size 4 (sometimes a 2 depending on the manufacturer), so no, I'm not a "fatty" defending fatties as a member of the "club." But you are nasty and vicious and clueless – clearly unintelligent to boot. Go away, nobody wants to hear your egocentric dishing. It's disgusting.
Wow, sounds like you have a really bad case of jealousy! Amber has discovered WHAT many people eventually find out, the fast food is a killer! WAKE Up before it's to late!
I love it that you tell it like it is without all the PC crap that rules our lives and coddles stupidities and weaknesses. All that crap just enables mediocrity and MORE crap.
She IS fat!!!!!!!!!!!
She was probably jealous about the other black girl from America Idol that lost all that weight.
I don't know of course, but I doubt that a FAST FOOD eater complaining about "stomach pains" decides to eat more healthful food to get rid of those "stomach pains".
Wow, closed-minded mean people love to whine about people being fat, then they whine about people losing it. Can't win, huh? You're a weak loser if you're fat, and then you're a hypocrite or something when you lose it? Is that right? Unbelievable.
The only thing disgusting on here is all of your absolutely horrendous, nasty, cutting comments about someone you don't even know. YOU are the gross ones. What did you possible accomplish by being so hateful so another person? Being nice makes everyone so much more attractive. And from where I can sit, you are all pretty ugly, no matter how thin your arms may be.
She gets to be a part of a great show, make great money, and everybody else on the show works hard to stay fit. We as viewers don't want to watch slobs who eat junk food. I could understand if you are just fat because of a genetic reason, but to chow on burgers and be a lazy person is disgusting. She looks terrible because she eats too much, and too much of the wrong things.
May God bless you and give you peace. Sorry you are so unhappy.
....and Mad City, you are appearing in how many hit shows? Really, you are a nasty, spiteful human. Has starving yourself to perfection taken what little you have for compassion? Most people would love to drop 20. I know I would and I'm not even famous. But then, neither are you.
Don't kid yourself, YOU'RE the pig. You, and all the other callous, low class losers here.
I'm pretty sure she meant that having the Glee wardrobe cast buy new clothes and take stuff in (which was probably a lot of work) was an unintended consequence. Obviously deciding to cut out fast food and eat healthy means that you are anticipating weight loss.
MadCityBabe, you are the perfect reason for abortion. Your mother should have dropped you in the toliet in the first trimester!! The world would be better off without you and your foul mouth kind.
She was making more money fat for one episode of her show than you probably make in two years. Is that why you're so upset?
