Jennie Garth has revealed that she has dropped 30lbs of what she called "dead weight" following her split from 'Twilight' actor Peter Facinelli.
The former 90210 star explained that the staggering amount of weight loss came following a bout of depression.
Speaking to People, she explained that the marriage was dying before the eventual split.

"I spent a couple of years lying in bed being depressed," she said. "It was that 'I can't breathe' pain.
"Physically I didn't look my best, and mentally I didn't feel my best. I was doing everything I could to be a good mom, but that was all I could handle."
When the divorce went public, Jennie and her children hid away at her California ranch in Santa Ynez, but following her 40th birthday she decided to get her life back on track.
"I just looked at it like there's no way I can hide out in the country and never work again, never love again and never laugh again," she said.
She credits the weight loss to a diet of Greek yoghurt, salads, salmon and coconut water, and an exercise regime including gym training and hiking.
