  1. SHES A GREAT ACTRESS AND A WONDERFUL PERSON NO MATTER WHAT SIZE SHE IS,, KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK ON EVERYTHING YOU DO MELISSA, YOU ALWAYS MAKE ME LAUGH AND I THINK YOURE THE GREATEST!!!!!

  2. C’mon now, she doesn’t weigh any 194 pounds or anything close. She invariably holds a pillow on top of her belly when she sits down on that sofa.

  3. Keep up the good work Melissa. I have struggled with my weight all my life. It’s amazing how you’ve lost the weight and I’m inspired by you. I just want to feel better.

  4. Melissa, you are an inspiration!! Keep
    doing what you’re doing!! Many, MANY people find you wonderful, funny, and loveable!! I do!!

  5. I and my husband are huge fans. The weight loss not only made us bigger fans your physical comedy has to be much easier and has most likely made keeping up with your kids . I hardly doubt the studio forced you to do it. that amount of weight loss had to have much more meaning to you, your children. Much success and an ever better life, you are a truly inspiring woman! May God continue to watch over your family.
