Melissa McCarthy is a HIGHlarious lady who's recently seen a lot of success as an actress.

She has an Emmy and was even nominated for an Oscar.

But that doesn't mean she still isn't self-conscious.

She said:

"Sometimes I wish I were just magically a size six and I never had to give [my weight] a single thought. But I am weirdly healthy, so I don’t beat myself up about it – it wouldn’t help, and I don’t want to pass that on to my girls."

Melissa even plays tennis, does pilates and eats really healthy!

Sometimes a person just can't help their weight.

She continued:

"I don’t really know why I’m not thinner than I am. I don’t really drink soda; I don’t have a sweet tooth, and we eat healthfully at home."

She's learned to be happy with who she is.

Melissa is even designing a plus-sized range of clothing.

She talked about how she doesn't actually know of anyone who is totally happy with their weight, saying:

"Pretty much everyone I know, no matter what size, is trying some system. Even when someone gets to looking like she should be so proud of herself, instead she’s like, 'I could be another three pounds less; I could be a little taller and have bigger lips.' Where does it end? You just have to say, 'It’s pretty damn good. I am right here at the moment and I’m OK with it. I’ve got other things to think about.'"

What a great outlook!

If you just decided to be happy with yourself and look at things more positively then you might just find your insecurities melt away.

Thanks for the great advice, Melissa!
