For comedian Lisa Lampanelli, her lifelong struggle with weight was no laughing matter.
The self-proclaimed "Queen of Mean" tipped the scales at a whopping 248 pounds earlier this year and was told by her doctor that she didn't have much time left to live unless she did something about it. Five months ago, Lisa underwent a gastric sleeve surgery, according to USA Today, where part of the stomach is removed leaving a thin vertical sleeve, or tube, that is about the size of a banana. Ever since then, the weight has been falling off and Lisa recently showed off her newer, 80 pounds lighter figure!
