Meanwhile, in addition to the photos showcasing the physical change that Drew Barrymore went through in only a matter of months, the Charlie's Angels and Santa Clarita Diet actress also posted a few heartfelt words of encouragement, along with sentiments that she wished to impart for 2019.

Here is me in a before pose and then 25 pounds later in the same place. 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! At least I know there are experts I can turn to for help. 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!

Check out her full Instagram album to see the "ladies on the front page" she mentions. She's right that you can see the weight loss in her face, it looks much thinner.

Everyone wants to start off a brand new year feeling good about themselves, and Barrymore is feeling very good.

As Drew Barrymore notes, her physical transformation came through a great amount of work, some healthy munching and a good bit of exercise too. It wasn't easy, but it was worth it in the end for her, and she is feeling happy and confident with herself and ready to tackle the world ahead.

In this post, she provides yet another example of her openness and her desire to make everyone feel encouraged. Here's to a new year, Drew Barrymore!
