“[Fans] saw a snapshot of my life for a period of time that was, unfortunately, the most ill I’ve ever been,” Lauren shared while speaking to TheWrap about her appearance as Dina versus now. “This transformation has just been about getting back to kind of what is my normal and what is my baseline and is right for where I need to be.”

She added that she credits “it to a lot of self-work, and removing negativity and toxicity and stress from my life.”

Lauren is one of the many celebs who have been open about her battles with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

“It has plagued me for the last, probably, 10 years of my life, but the worst time in my life for my health was the six years I was on Superstore,” Lauren says.

She was “getting surgeries and was really struggling in trying to maintain my physical health. PCOS affects your hormones. There’s a lot of it that is out of your control. For me, really the last two years have been about a) getting my mental health in a great place, and b) getting my PCOS regulated. And when I did that, I dropped a significant amount of weight.”

Lauren then revealed that now, because of her weight loss as she’s been getting healthier, many people have come out of the woodwork to leave hateful comments.

“I’ve got a lot of backlash on social media about people thinking and saying that I’ve betrayed them, that I’ve gone Hollywood, that I’ve done all these things,” she says. “But the reality of the situation is that the size that I’m at now is the size that I was at roughly on Super Fun Night, which was my first show that I did when I first moved to the U.S. [in 2013].”

Lauren actually founded the PCOS Sisterhood.

You can catch Lauren in Not Dead Yet, airing Wednesdays on ABC.
