Lisa Lampanelli, the outspoken comedian known as the "Queen of Mean," has lost 106 pounds after having gastric-sleeve surgery last year.

Lampanelli, who appeared on season 12 of Donald Trump's "The Celebrity Apprentice," underwent a bariatric procedure last April that reshaped and reduced the size of her stomach.

"I've lost a total of 106 pounds," Lampanelli told In Touch. "I feel like I’ve reached the weight I'm supposed to be. I'm officially a skinny b—!"

Lampanelli also credits exercise and portion control for helping her get to her new 142-pound weight. In addition to relearning healthy eating habits, Lampanelli said she also had to delve into the psychological issues that were causing her to overeat in the first place.

"I have to figure out my addiction issue and how I even got overweight in the first place," she said.

Lampanelli has been struggling with her weight for years.

"I tried every single thing imaginable — diet, exercise. I even bought a house on the health spa property and I still gained weight," she said on "The Dr. Oz Show" in October 2012. "For 32 years, from 18 to 50, I tried everything on the planet, and once I had a clean slate with that I said, 'You know what? Nothing's working for me. I'm going to treat this like the addiction that it is. I'm going to get this surgery and use it as a tool. That's all it is, a tool to help me get over it."

For now, Lampanelli is enjoying her new figure, especially when it comes to dressing it.

"One of the best parts of losing weight has been the clothing," Lampanelli told In Touch. "I roll up to Macy's and go to the sales rack and see how much I can get for as little amount of money! It's almost like a game for me."
