May 9 (UPI) -- Lisa Lampanelli, the 51-year-old insult comic known for her racy sense of humor, said in a recent interview that she's lost 106 pounds with the help of gastric-sleeve surgery.

“I’ve lost a total of 106 pounds,” Lampanelli said in this week's issue of In Touch. “I feel like I’ve reached the weight I’m supposed to be. I’m officially a skinny bitch!”

Lampanelli said the best part of weight loss is shopping.

“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!” she said.

The comedian, who now weighs 142 pounds, has been cracking jokes about her weight loss and eating habits on Twitter.

"See me Saturday in Rochester, MN at the Mayo Civic Center. Way better than where I used to hang out: the Mayo AISLE!" she tweeted Wednesday.
