How Amber Riley Dropped Two Dress Sizes

If you did a double take when you saw pictures of Amber Riley at the NAACP Image Awards, you're not alone. The Glee star turned plenty of heads recently, when she showed off a noticeably slimmer physique in a tight-fitting blue sequin Theia gown.
"I dropped two dress sizes!," Amber confirms to People.
Amber credits her weight loss to changing her eating habits, a change brought on when chronic stomach pains forced her to see the doctor.
"I decided I was going to make a change and eat healthier," she says, and she started by cutting out the fast food and burgers that "were attacking [her] stomach."
However, she stresses that the weight loss is not for aesthetic reasons -- rather, she just want to get healthy.
"I've always been comfortable with my size," she says. "I just decided it was time to get healthy."
