THE Office star Lucy Davis has revealed her incredible weight loss during an at-home workout.
The actress, who made a name for herself playing receptionist Dawn on the hit sitcom, has struggled with her weight in the past.
The 49-year-old shared an Instagram photo on Monday showing off her slim figure as she lifted a heavy barbell with her personal trainer brother Jake giving her advice.
She said, “5lb one arm deadlifts. I can’t get out of my chair. Send help #weightlifting #strength training #womenlifting @jakebodyupgrade.”
Lucy moved to Los Angeles in 2004 when cult sitcom The Office was nominated for and won two Golden Globes.
At the time, the star, who struggled with bulimia, admitted that losing three stones helped her win more acting roles, explaining: “I wish I could be one of those people who is indifferent to their weight, but since I lost weight I had three roles – so that must tell you something.
“I struggle because I love food and sometimes I can’t stop eating. If I’m thinner, I feel better about myself, but I’m not losing weight for someone else. or for a magazine.”
The Solihull-born star, daughter of comedian Jasper Carrott, has spoken openly about bulimia and said things came to a head when her five-year marriage to fellow actor Owain Yeoman ended in 2011.
While promoting Wonder Woman in 2017, Lucy told The Telegraph: “In my thirties I would have hated to look like that.
“I probably wouldn’t get out much. I would diet for a week and then eat all the food I hadn’t eaten in the previous seven days in one day.”
She continued, “Now I think I’m just normal. But my head didn’t think that at the time. This period of frenzy and purging was at its worst when my marriage ended.
“Even today, I sometimes wonder if I could try losing a few pounds, and then I’ll think, ‘Ooh no, I’d love some cheese.’
“I realized that not all eating disorders are primarily about how you look.
“They’re talking about something much more fundamental. Like any addiction, I guess. It’s not that you have a problem with alcohol, for example, it’s that you have a problem, that’s why you drink For me, a cycle of vomiting and starving was my solution.”
Lucy starred in the Netflix sitcom The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina as one of the main aunts Hilda Spellman.
She also played Etta Candy in the hit 2017 film Wonder Woman and recently filmed the American comedy series Amy d’Amarillo.
