Food Network star Valerie Bertinelli showed fans the wonders that abstaining from alcohol does for you in a new TikTok. After participating in ‘Dry January’ (where one goes the entire month of January with no alcohol), Bertinelli reveals that she dropped down a full pants size.

“These jeans that I’m wearing were so tight a few months ago that I couldn’t comfortably button them,” she said. “Now, they’re so loose it’s time for me to go down a size.”

Additionally, Bertinelli revealed in the comment section that she is also interested in participating in Dry July and Sober October. 

Bertinelli shared that her decision to be sober for 31 days came from needing to deal with emotional issues with a “clear-head.”

“When we push these feelings away, they have a way of sneaking back into our lives and causing suffering,” Bertinelli continued. “But if we face them with kindness and care, we can find resolution and rest.”

Bertinelli separated from her ex-husband Tom Vitale in 2021, remarking that she felt “free” after finalizing her divorce from “the narcissist.” 

In 2020, she mourned the loss of her ex-husband, Eddie Van Halen.
