All eyes were on Melissa McCarthy last night at the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special — and it wasn't just because of her hilarious skit that she performed alongside Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
The 'Bridesmaids' star smiled from ear-to-ear as she showed off her impressive 50-pound weight loss in a sparkly black gown that cinched at the waist.

The actress has reportedly been on a high protein, low carb diet, and although she's loving the results she's seen so far, she's making a point not to take things too far.
"Melissa knows that fans love her big and beautiful, and she's not obsessed with dieting," a source told 'Star' magazine. "She's looking for a happy medium."

"Melissa realized she wasn't being as healthy as she could be,' continued the source. "She wants to set a good example for her kids and she wants to be around to become a grandmother too."
