But how exactly did she do it? that’s the question i have been asking myself since i stumbled upon this gist.

well, i found out that she credits the weight loss with a new diet and exercise plan.

She cut out fast foods and “decided I was going to make a change and eat healthier.” so decision and determination are quite a combination for a drastic change.

The seven-month health kick has obviously paid off. Riley says the costume department on set has had to tailor a lot of her pants and dresses to accommodate her slimmer frame. They’ve also had to buy “a lot of new clothes for me.”

Even before losing weight, the Los Angeles-born actress considered herself a confident woman.

“I’ve always been comfortable with my size,” says Riley. “I just decided it was time to get healthy.”

congrats girl! you rock
