We'll be seeing a lot less of Ricky Gervais and his girlfriend, Jane Fallon, now that they've moved to Hampstead Heath -- up to a collective 40 lbs. less, according to the newly buff couple.

"I lost 20 [or] 22 lbs.," Gervais told PEOPLE Saturday night in New York at Night of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Concert for Autism." "It wasn't so much about the weight. It was more that I was a fat, lazy, out of shape slob, to be honest."
