Alyson Hannigan almost broke the internet over the weekend with a jaw-dropping before-and-after post.

“The before and after says it all,” the 49-year-old How I Met Your Mother and American Pie star captioned on Instagram. “I lost 20 pounds of both weight and emotional baggage during my time on @dancingwiththestars. I can’t thank @sashafarber1 enough for helping me shed my insecurities and getting me to the confident and strong place I am today!”

The Dancing With the Stars finalist soon got some very positive reactions from friends and former co-stars.

“I just see confidence gained,” posted Sarah Michelle Gellar, Hannigan’s Buffy co-star.

“You’ve always seemed a goddess to me 🔥,” Seth Green added.

During her time on the show, Hannigan frequently shared what a positive—and confidence-boosting—the DWTS experience had been.

“Where do I even begin? I really don’t have enough words in my vocabulary to express my gratitude for this experience,” she captioned in a separate post. “To go into this journey with mostly fear, and come out how I feel now is indescribable I cannot thank @sashafarber1 enough for everything he gave me, shared with me and experienced with me. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner. Thank you for not giving up on me. Thank you for giving me confidence and making me feel like I could do this and then getting me there and having so much fun along the way. I am so glad that you came into my life and you’re not gonna get rid of me now.”
