Drew Barrymore already got a jumpstart on her health for the New Year.

The actress took to Instagram on Saturday to reveal that she lost 25 pounds in three months. "When I look at Instagram, I am made to think I should be at my best self," Barrymore captioned a side-by-side photo, displaying her incredible progress. "But most days, I lack consistency due to real life. Solution: with the right people (@marniealton) we can make our goals a reality..."

She admitted that her journey to slimming down was not an easy one. "Here is me in a before pose and then 25 pounds later in the same place," she wrote. "You can tell my face is so much thinner! This takes me so much work. Diet and exercise and fighting like a lion for it! Damn you genetics! And yet thank you for all the good stuff. I love where I come from (JOHN ETHEL LIONEL) and whatever package it comes in. I just know that I have the control to be what I want. Even if it is hard AF!"

While Barrymore put in the hard work, she credited her trainer for helping transform her body. "At least I know there are experts I can turn to for help," she said. "I mean look at what Marnie helped me do in three months! When i have time off in 2019...I'm comin for ya! PS may I just say I want to be these ladies on the front page. You are my spirit animals and my goal posts!"

In 2016, Barrymore lost 20 pounds for her character Shelia Hammond, who is on a high-protein diet, in the Netflix series Santa Clarita Diet. At the time, she and ex Will Kopelman split and she weighed 145 pounds.

"I let myself go, 'cause when I'm doing the show, I'm a vegan and I barely eat anything...and I work out almost every day and it's so healthy and it gets you euphoric and then it's like food poisoning, you think you will never want to eat again and before you know it, you're just pigging out with the feed bag strapped to your face," Barrymore said during the Late Late Show with James Corden. "And I'm a foodie and I love food and I travel the world for food, so I get heavy again between the show."

We have feeling Drew's days of yo-yo dieting are over given her new dedication to diet and exercise. Looking good, lady!
