Raven-Symone weight loss details

The People's Choice Awards were great, but the real scene-stealer of the night was Raven-Symone's weight loss. The That's So Raven star debuted her newly-svelte look on the PCA red carpets and she looks absolutely amazing.

"I thought I looked fabulous before and nobody else did," the confident star told People. "So, whatever."

Her body confidence is inspiring, even after losing the excess poundage. In fact, it's Symone's weight loss that makes her uncomfortable!

"Actually, now I wear bigger clothes because I don't like the way people stare at me," she continued. "I liked it before. Now, you're just looking at me for the wrong reasons. Before, you were actually looking at me for a real reason."

The actress reportedly dropped 35 lbs. after ending her Disney Channel show. She said the pressure of That's So Raven contributed to her weight gain.

"That's what stress does to you," Symoné said. "I've been not stressing. I've been in my own house, decorating and finding hobbies."

The stress must not have turned her off from acting for good – she just finished a pilot titled The Great State of Georgia for ABC Family.

Our hats are off to you, Raven-Symone. Your weight loss is definitely inspiring, and just in time for the new year!
