Glee‘ fans will be seeing less of Amber Riley in the future, but don’t worry — she isn’t planning on leaving the show anytime soon. Instead, her diminished appearance is the result of a diet change that resulted in Riley losing a noticeable amount of weight.

“I’ve always been comfortable with my size,” Riley explained to PEOPLE in an interview about her new look. “I just decided it was time to get healthy.”

Riley’s decision was based on chronic pains that made her realize she needed to give up the junk foods she says “were attacking” her stomach. As she puts it now, “I decided I was going to make a change and eat healthier.”

That change quickly brought visible results. “I dropped two dress sizes!” Riley told People, adding, “I’m a lot more comfortable in dresses, especially gowns.” She has plenty of new ones to feel comfortable in, too: “We had to revamp the wardrobe,” she revealed. “They bought a lot of new clothes for me and we have to take in a lot of my pants and dresses.”

Riley showed off her new figure in the above photo, taken at the Tabu Ultra Lounge in Las Vegas on her 26th birthday party. What better way to celebrate your new health?
