Amber, 26, has now dropped two sizes and she told People what kicked her butt into action: "I decided I was going to make a change and eat healthier."

According to the Glee star, who paid tribute to Whitney Houston following her sudden death in the TV show, said that her fatty diet "were attacking (her) stomach".

It's been a steady change but after six months of healthy eating and working out, Riley now admits that she feels more comfortable when getting dressed up.

Even her Glee character, Mercedes Jones, is having a wardrobe overhaul. "I'm a lot more comfortable in dresses especially gowns.

"We had to revamp the wardrobe. They bought a lot of new clothes for me and we have to take in a lot of my pants and dresses."

But Amber insists that she doesn't mind being a bigger girl but she just needed to get her health in check.

"I've always been comfortable with my size. I just decided it was time to get healthy," she said.
