Kirstie Alley took to Twitter yesterday to address a very weighty issue: "I've lost over 50 lbs... and I'm having the time of my of my life," she wrote, adding, "30 more to go."
The 59-year-old former "Cheers" star – who also posted a photo of herself from a recent shoot in Italy - confessed last year that she was tipping the scales at 230 pounds, having gained back the 75 pounds she dropped on Jenny Craig in 2006.
"By 2008, my weight started creeping up and I said, 'Oh, I still look good at 150. I still look good at 155. I still look okay at 165. Some of my clothes still fit at 175,'" she told Ladies' Home Journal in April. "And nobody was saying 'You're fat.' I was like a bank robber who was getting away with it."
Not anymore. Alley says that with the help of her new Organic Liaison weight loss program, she has successfully gotten rid of the pounds and gained confidence and control.
"Back from Italy...found the love of my life," she tweeted September 19, "turned out it was me."
Thank you for every other excellent article. Where else may just anyone get that type of info in such an ideal method of writing? I've a presentation subsequent week, and I'm at the look for such info.
Headline should read "Kirstie Allie Loses 50 Pounds... AGAIN". SHe'd be much more credible as a spoksperson for a toy company that makes yo-yos.
I'm happy for her but this is a perfect example of what news has sunk to.
There's a world of events to cover out there.
how malicious some of these posts are!! I could not believe my eyes! One of my favorite sayings are ....Watch out for the Karma thats going to come around and bite you back!!
Kirsty... you go girl! Forget the ppl who only have snide remarks...they're not worth the trouble....
Best Wishes, Kirstie. Getting older is a battle every day, but it is worth it. As for the nasty comments, few of these commenters are going to get several hundred comments to a CNN article about them when they get close to age 60.
She looks like she's picturing me as an apple pie in that photo.
Great! Job way-to-go Kirstie!!
I just wanted to say, HI :) I'm not concerned with the fat loss article.
She lost 50 lbs alright...from her belly to her ass!
i would definetly put it in her butt
Choose Weight Watchers instead, Kirstie Alley belongs to an Organisation that breaks up families and lies to people.

I must need glasses. I read so many people are saying how beautiful she is. Forget the weight issue, look at that snarl on her face. If people think that is beautiful I hate to see ugly.
She's 59? Well, all I can say is, fat or skinny... She's still a babe.
I must need glasses because many people are saying how beautiful she is. I don't see it. Forget her weight, look at the snarl on her face. If that's beauty I hate to see ugly.
Good for you K.
I love Anne Murray!
She's like the white Oprah when it comes to weight loss. Up.....down....up......down......new diet.............other now diet...........up........down
So, a fatty loses weight and now wants attention? She needs to lose another 75.
She is da bomb! Always was, still is!
kirstie alley is a stunningly beautiful woman, and she struggles as we all do. good luck to her, i wish her well!
Is it the definition of insanity when you make the "news" doing the same thing over and over again? I think she gains the weight so she can make the new by losing it all over again.
take a hint after 2 series based on your weight loss & poor revenue having you as Weight Watchers spokesperson...NO 1 CARES!!
There's a one month free trial diet here: http://thenewsheadline.com/channel6/diet/
but I wouldn't buy it until I know it works. Make sure you use their news6 code for the trial.
I think she's hot and highly humpable
I'd like to tickle her tonsils!
There's a one month free trial of the acai diet Channel 6 News is given away http://thenewsheadline.com/channel6/diet
I just ordered it and will give a review later on my youtube channel.
Great job Kirstie! I really hope she can keep it off but also come to the realization that the weight has little to do with happiness or peace of mind. A tormented addicted mind isn't going to be happy by the "I've lost 50 lbs." proclamation in the long term.
Only four more chins to go! Good job, rich fat person!
Kirstie just traded her SUV in for a front end loader.
I love her! Kirstie is beautiful, has a great personality & is happy with her life & who she is! It sounds like many of you could only wish for the same. I wish her only the best!
"I've lost over 50 lbs..."
Don't worry, hon! You'll find them again!
Well good for her. And to all you people out there who are hating on her... remember she has WAY more money than you ever will... Congrats Kristie
She's already lost more than she ever weighed! Is she still visible!?
50 more to go.....still cute though
Fighting weight is no fun.
Hope she can keep it off this time.
TO ED: She wouldn't give you the time of day so just...beat it!
I am saddened by the way people talk about Kirstie's weight loss. Be happy for her, congratulate her, why even come on this Forum and make hateful remarks. Keep going Kirstie, I am proud of you, do not listen to the hateful words. They
hide behind their ugly words and I just wonder, are you all perfect???? Why take the time to even comment on her weight loss if you can not say something positive?? Kirstie keep going, overweight or slim, you are always a beautiful
Some of you are so rude. I just lost 70 pounds and it is very hard and I'm very proud of it! I used to have a congenital heart problem and it's fixed finally and before that I couldn't workout and frankly without exercise I can only eat air! Losing weight, stopping smoking, whatever someone tackles and overcomes should be applauded! I'm sure many of you have something you can improve on...
Kirstie, I think it is great!! My husband and I have always loved ya girl, and trust me I have been there and back and back and back. But I keep trying and the older you get the harder it seems to come off. I give you a huge thumbs up, keep it up, we are all rooting for you!! You look great by the way.
What, again? How is she doing it this time?
While I don't like some of her political views, and I sure wish she'd convert to Catholicism I still like her...to a point. After all anyone who has cats has to have SOME grace.
lose, gain, lose gain, who cares Kristi? You'lll just gain in back again!
the photo was heavily photo shopped..HEAVILY..looking at the original from twitter. the embedded EXIF embedded EXIF using a firefox add on shows its has numerous modifications.
Beauty and Weightloss through Photoshop PT Barnam would love photoshop Kirstie does too
Joe it must be great to be so fantastic that all you and your lovely , fit wife can do is put people down and talk about how great you are...get real...so you take care of yourself and think that is all that is important, what about compassion and caring for others. Get your ego and your fat head out of your toned tight ass.
unfortunately, she's coming out bragging about this because she now has her own weight-loss program to shill for.
Most people can control their weight with diet and exercise. The rest of us need supplements, but we don't need $100 'programs' just a high quality supplement.
Unfortunately, most supplements do one of 2 things:
1. trick your body into thinking you're full when you're not. This is starvation.
2. rev up your metabolism, and we've all read about how dangerous this can be.
A new set of supplements uses Leptin – the hormone your cells release to tell your brain "we're full".
Our modern lives – stress,poor eating, etc. – mess with our body chemistry, and sometimes those messages don't get through.
Leptin supplements, like Mandura TRIM, help cut through the 'clutter' and make sure your brain knows when to stop eating. Naturally.
Safe, effective, and Clinically Proven.
Find out more at: http://BuyManduraTRIM.com
The REAL story if if she keeps it off. Not if she loses 50 lbs for the 27th time. Good luck K.A. Everyone has their cross to bear and this evidently is yours.
Listen all you idiots that are throwing comments like this, over eating is a bad habit, but let me tell you why we see so
many overweight people today!! It's because of the things that are going on in the good old USA, the prices of food, bills,
cars, and etc. have gone through the roof, it's cheaper to eat junk food, and we are all guilty of indulging when were
depressed ,Just look around you and ask people if they are really happy with the life we now have in USA. we no longer are able to live the DREAM . Life is not easy and a there is a lot of people whom are depressed today, we just can't keep up, so of course we turn to junk food, I'm sorry for all you skinny people whom bad mouth the over weight
people, yep! But about Christi, she still is a beautiful person and that is all you all should care about, so stop hating
and let us all live in peace, either skinny or fat, were all still here to make a differance. SO Christi, keep up the good
work and go girl. I'm sixty and wish I looked as good as you do!
She's almost as annoying as Jennifer Aniston.
I DON'T REALLY CARE HOW OLD YOU ARE YOU ARE STILL A KNOCK OUT A LIVING DOLL
Cut the salt, the calories, the sugar, exercise, avoid social eating, eating out of frustration and stress, demand of yourself to eat healthy during lunch and you're good.
yeah, sure...and the tooth fairy shall pay a visit tonight.
THIS JUST IN: Kirsty Alley retract claim to 50 lb weight loss " MY DAMN SCALE WAS BROKEN I DID NOT LOSE ANY WEIGHT IN FACT I GAINED 11 lbs" Kirsty said in an interview.
omg...breaking news...this just in....toledo scale co has just terminated their contract w/ ms. alley citing "unprofessional behavior"...in other words...the cow broke their scale.
omg...breaking news...this just in...doctors have just discovered a putrid gelatinous mass attached to ms. kirstie alley's backside and have determined that it was "belly fat" that had somehow been transformed from front to back.
this porker is sooo verrry gargantuan that, here in wacky utah, she would be "sister wife" # 5,6 & 7.
check out the pic...she is just a tad cheezed 'bout the comments!!!!
to zaroyzer: thank god (or gosh as they say here in utah...cuz cussing is verbotin) u r back. i need some help. they have been trashing me unmercifully. helllllppppp
dude i got your back.
dude your post got my wife cryin shes laughing so hard.
narcissistic moron & fat, tambien
breaking news....this just in!!! kirstie just copped to how she lost the 50 lbs...right boob removal
look behind u, kirstie, and ye shall find the 50 lbs...its in ur big fat a**
the really funny thing is she'll get hundreds of thousands of dollars for making herself look like a fat cow.
My wife said she looked either high or just tired in that picture.
Ok I'm back my wife was laughing at Kirsty too after dinner!
I wished people woulden't talk so bad about other people, it's not going to help. i think she is a wonderful person, its her life let her live it the way she likes. my family has always liked her movies. good-luck kirstie
Most of you who provided a comment here (albeit nasty ones) have no idea how hard it is for some people to lose weight. It is an epidemic here in the USA. Woman especially have a hard time and those in public life even a harder time. So, instead of making fun of her and others with a weigh problem encourge her. YOU GO GIRL!
yep...she will go, girl...to the nearest krispy kreme shop..."a dozen to go, plz and make it those glazed ones i just loooove"
ah yes...the comments r getting verrrry snarky and r priceless...except 4 the sheeps who r buying into kirsties shtick.
Do we really care? Why can't these women embrace their bodies at the current wieght, and stop obsessing about it. I would prefer it if she reported she was starting a self acceptance and wellness website for women focused on healthy behavior and self esteem. Why can't she accept her size and be a spokeswoman for large women? Rather than continuing the stereo type that you are only worthy if you are a certian weight. Show off your body, be in a bikini on a beach in Italy, on the cover of People magazine. Start a movement for self acceptance and self esteem for women.
yep...and as snarky as i can get...i fully agree. accept what u r or change, if u wish, but do it w/out the fanfare cuz u lose whatever credibility u have or used to have....unless u r an unabashed hound trolling for a diet deal!
Let's get serious. At 150 she would be thin and that hasn't happened in a long time. She's a big girl so she can weigh more. At her highest she had to be close to 300 lbs. Too much Chinese food!
I use tapeworm to lose weight. Wife use it too and now she is like stick. Beautiful.
...and in other news, Oprah just announced she gained another 50lbs...
For a moment when she said "Back from Italy...found the love of my life," I thought she was going to say she was getting married. If your a woman, that's a sure way to put weight-on.
Wonder how much she could/would loose if she wasn't getting paid by the pound ?
Who cares, she'll gain 100 next week. Get a life!
Who cares you no talent, overweight, silly scientologist cow.
You are an embarassment to humanity and should just fade into the sunset now.
Hey Suicidal. I know how you feel!!!!! People and their comments can really hurt! People judge you when they have NO clue what you're going through. Their time will come when they have a very difficult problem. Please know that you have the power of God inside you, and you CAN change your life. And the cruel people's comments don't matter. They are projecting their own issues onto others. Please don't lose hope. Things CAN get better, and there ARE those who care and understand! God bless! :)
The super-secret to weight loss and keeping it off: Eat less, exercise more.
What an un-American idea. Thousands and thousands of people in the weight loss INDUSTRY would add to the unemployed whos jobs have been shipped overseas. You just don't understand Corporate/Congressional business !
wow M...you have issues...might wanna get help with that. bad karma can really bite.
I FOUND IT!!!!
another 750 to go ...
Ok so good for her (sincerely) that she lost the weight, she should share that with the world to encourage others it can be done, BUT based on how she looked in her show, she weighed a lot more than 150, 160, 175....tv adds pounds but whatever. She is a big woman and she had to weigh more than that. If she weighed 175 and lost 50 and 30 more to go....that would make her 95lbs. She should just be honest about what she is and lost. She is a beautiful woman and I hope she stays a healthy weight for her.
Scientology, the cure-all for all that ails mankind, seems to have forgotten to come up with a good diet plan. Well, I take that back. They DID come up with a plan for one to lose weight, that being, of course, the weight of all your money. Just give it to them!
Wow, some cruel people commenting here.
Kirstie is gorgeous, weight or no weight!!
Drop dead fatty. Nice career you've made out of being a giant pig.
Hey Spencer...love to see a full body picture of you, chnaces are 65/35 you got weight issues of your own. Its creepy how i can tell just from your abusive post.
I can remember previously when she lost all that weight......she had her pix all over the place. Then she packed on the pounds again and then later, another story about her losing weight and on and on. It's been awhile since we've seen this same story. However, good for her providing she keeps it off. She just can't help herself when she goes on a binge eating kick. Anyone notice that she hasn't been on a TV show for years and years let alone a movie! I thought I read somewhere that she just finished up a movie but who knows.
God I hate people.
That's funny, cause people hate you too. Very symmetrical, wouldn't you say?
Some of you people are so mean! I bet that half of you that are making fun of her have the same problem! Get a life! She's happy, that's what matters. How many of you out there are happy about your weight? I know that I'm not...
Come on cupcake, the love of your life is..............a cupcake!
I had a bowel movement this afternoon. That's about as newsworthy as this is.
I dunno – but you still come across as a shi+ head....
Ahhh shep, you intellectual colossus, you! Funny, Wagner used to tell me the same thing.
Her abnormally small head makes her body look bigger
All the scams people buy into to loss weight, the secret is simple, STOP EATING SOME MUCH. Bunch of losers.
John, can you survive on half of what you eat? I 'm certain that at least half of the people that weight over 100 lbs more than you eat no more than you do.
Wait for it... wait... wait...... here comes the rebound!!!
Anybody else find it funny that the (supposedly) healthier America eats, the fatter everyone gets? America, as a whole, is eating less fat now, and has more obese people, than anytime in the past.
There is something going on metabolically that is beyond most people to control.
Thank you Jodee for posting that info, I am going to look it up and also invite a friend to do so as well, that has severe problems with depression and obsesity due to over eating.
I am almost 100 lbs overweight and I'm 35- yet I don't eat a 3rd of what i used to eat 10 years ago. Yet I have not seen any weight loss. To look at me you would think I eat all day and gorge on bon bons by the truckload. Its frustrating. Someone mentioned how some of us have inherited those kind of bodies our ancestors did that could survive on very little food. It feels true. I have a strong body and quick reflexes for my size, and don't "feel" like a lazy slob but it must be what people think of me too. Like "if only she'd put down the fork and walk". So funny. I walk everywhere, walk to bus stops, walk to grocery stores. I get firm flab. That's what I get. But its no excuse to stay overweight. I don't want to die in 2 years. I'll never lose hope. Nobody should!
It has totally changed my life NoDoubt. I will never diet again and this intuitive eating or listening to your body's hunger and fullness cues is the only way to go, I honestly believe this. Of course there is more to it than that, but that is just to simplify and give you a very short overview. Our society is so focused on body image and weight loss and diets, and where has it got us – only to one of the unhealthiest nations in the world!! Something is seriously wrong there. It's time to take back our power from the diet industry. It's time to toss our scales. It's time to live life free of food and body image obsession! Before I go, I want to share one more site that I really like. It's about media and body image about-face.org Take care, you can do it!!!
No medical Marijuana scripts for Kirstie Alley.
good to see her not blaming other stuff for her obesity and she's taking responsibility! it does take hard work and dedication to lose weight so let's see how dedicated she is. If you're tired of fad diets and want to learn how to drop some weight check out http://www.diet-myths.com
I wish you a well being Kirstie.
comments r getting wayyy better...except for the pity partyers...come on folks, she is playing us like a stradivarius and some of u sheeps r buying into it. come to utah cuz the morons (whoops....mormons) would looooove to recruit u!
She's still a moose!
In the early fifties, moose meant a hot chick.
Who cares? There are more important things happening in the world.
Suicidal: call somebody now, do not wait,. do it now. There are people who love you, do not eliminate yourself.
Oh really? Turn around and look in the mirror its all in your @ss.
There are so many directions to take this story. From the first time I saw Ms. Alley perform, I was awe-struck. She clearly is talented as an actor. With that, she also has incredible, sultry, piercing eyes. In her early days, her physical balance was excellent, and very admirable. She was one of the most physically beautiful female actors of her time.
Her roller-coaster weight issues are likely based in her psyche, as is true for most people with similar life challenges. I sincerely hope she is receiving the needed psychological help she needs to truly maintain a weight/height balance it seems she seeks. Perhaps she could regain a sense of legitimacy in show business, as she would likely feel better about herself.
to zaroyzer: nope...sorry to say but i am a skier.
Kirstie needs to learn how to love and acept herself – NO MATTER HER WEIGHT! Sick of hearing her whine about it. Be big and love it or just starve yourself like all the other idiots.
Ok... I retract all my statements.
I had a turkey on wheat, light mayo and chips for lunch.
She should turn around, I think I found the 50lbs.
Suicidal – read my comments and then go look up Intuitive Eating, Natural Eating, Conscious Eating. There is a way out of your diet hell and I am totally living proof. There is help. It is not about finding willpower!!! It is not just about walking away from the table. And who cares what everyone else thinks. This is your life, not theirs. I never thought I could do it but I did and weight is no longer taking over my life. There is an online program that might help you from the Cedric Centre in BC, Canada. Google it and see what it's about. There are others, but this one is super affordable and has a built in support network. Killing yourself is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Dig deep and invest in yourself to get better and live an amazing life. That will be the best way to get back at all the haters!!!
I'm overweight. I'm unhappy. I've searched for answers, tried using my will power, cried out to God. I don't know what else to do. And after reading the cruel comments here, I now realize how people think of me. They think you just walk away from the table? It's not like that at all. It's more like this constant hunger that never goes away and the more you try to ignore it, the louder it screams at you. I met an alcoholic once and that is how she described her disease. If she bought a six pack, it's like it was screaming at her (figurately speaking) until all 6 were gone. I'm glad people can leave anonymous comments here so I now see how society really feels about me. Since I can't fix myself, then I guess I'll have to eliminate myself.
Suicidal- please trust in one thing: that when a person is depressed, they can't think straight. Can't put things in proper perspective. I have a friend in the same boat. There is help and we CAN get better but only if we stick around! When a person is depressed they are not capable of cultivating the proper responses to life's challenges. We take it way more internally and feel like everything is our fault. A difficult childhood, abusive relationships, and genetics are not things we can fix from the past or from our DNA- but we CAN learn to take things one day at a time. ONE DAY AT A TIME. If you want you can talk to me- firstname.lastname@example.org
To Suicidal–Please do not do anything permanent to yourself to stop this attack. You mentioned God in your post so you also know a little something about the dark side. It sounds like you have been targeted by those who are working for the dark side! The strategy they use is to keep up their chanting until you give in to the temptation they are suggesting. In other words they want to wear you down until you obey them. In your case they are ordering you to eat, eat, and eat some more! Why do you think they do this? They want to see you destroy yourself, just as you are suggesting. If you do their bidding, they win this battle, but you would be gone! Do not obey their orders! Pray as you have never prayed before! You have people who care about you. The fact that you are reaching out on this blog means that you are still strong enough to stay in the fight. Please try the things that have been suggested here, but do not give up.
A friend in California
Suicidal I can't speak for everyone but everything I've said (typed) is in jest. I do find it hard to understand people who cannot find it in themselves to change aspects of their life. Please do not harm yourself. Find help. There are medical procedures if worse comes to worse but more so than anything else look within yourself and find what makes you unique. Accentuate those things you do well. Not everyone is meant to be thin. the issue here is when someone uses an aspect of their life to get money out of pity then she gets what she deserves.
I understand how you're feeling. I was reading these comments all day Friday. Don't ask me why–I guess it was an eye opener as to what people really think. I am so appalled that people are so full of hate and really don't care. I spent my whole weekend feeling like I would never be worth anything any more. I will probably lose my husband to cancer in the near future and after reading this, it makes me wonder what reason I have to stick around. People don't underestimate what effect your cruelty has. Maybe you don't care–I think a lot of these people really don't and it's sickening. CNN, maybe you should reconsider how these comment threads are handled. Freedom of speech is good, but not when it's used by immature people trying to get laughs at the expense of others.
Has this pitiful woman had any sort of career since Cheers went off the air except to trot herself out every few months to say how much weight she's gained/lost/gained/lost/gained/lost/gained/lost and blah! blah! blah?.....enough already!...have another donut!
She loses 50 pounds about every other month only to find 60.
Obesity is an epidemic in our society. It is troubling to read articles about the increase of americans that are over weight or obese. It is especially disturbing to read how many children are obese. This may indicate that the cycle will continue. It is also troublesome because obesity leads to so many other problems, such as diabetes and heart problems and lead to other lifelong healthcare concerns.
This has got to be the biggest proof that diets do not work. If a celebrity with all the resources in the world cannot lose and keep weight off, well then there is no hope for the rest of society! Plus, she was paid to be on Jenny Craig and she still couldn't do it!
If she would just realize that the only real way to get down to her natural body weight is to eat when she's hungry and stop when she's full she could get off this weight loss/gain rollercoaster for good. No one should care what they weigh. You can feel it when you're heavier than you should be. Who cares what the number is!? Do not let yourself be controlled by the stupid scale!!
I am speaking from experience and leaving all diets behind is the greatest freedom I have known.
Right, She lost 50 pounds. Now she'll gain 60 pounds. Hey Kirstie, we've seen this movie before (like a million times). Give it a rest and keep it to yourself. And STEP AWAY FROM THE BUFFET!!!!
Good for you Kirstie. I have always been thin and feel very sad for those who struggle to keep their wieght off. I cheer anyone that can do what is necessary stay healthy. Eat less, eat the right foods and exercise. Everyday is a new day. Do NOT give up.
CINDY? IS THAT YOU? All funny beautiful inside and out 300 pound CINDY?
I've always liked her so much. She is beautiful inside and out, no matter what size, and funny!
Big deal ,she skipped lunch one day
Oooof.. she's still a piece of work. She has more chins than Chinatown.
This greedy (for attention, for money, for food) woman was paid a handsome fee for losing weight with, and shilling for, Jenny Craig. The only requirement was that she weigh in regularly, and stay with the program. She started feeding again, and got fat, and got fired, and all of the attention she once had was lavished on that new (and much better looking) JC girl, Valerie Bertanelli. So KA came out with her "own" diet and - voila! - she's losing weight (again) to promote it. Quelle suprise! What Kirstie needs is a giant cork. She won't be able to eat, and we won't be able to hear her whine. She is so, so over!
What a pathetic, attention-starved media pig this woman is. Note to Kirstie: You are gross and disgusting. Please go away, and don't come back.
Scientologists are so funny. They are always good for a laugh.
ha...but...try living in utah and living with the morons (whoops...mormons)...talk about laffs?
What. 5 foot 2 ...3hundred and a 1/4 ? no excuse!!!
5'7" nimrod.... can you read?
Aside from gaining and losing weight, does this women have any other talents? I mean, I think she does the whole "lose weight, gain weight, lose weight" thing just to stay in the news.
Got to wonder why you would read this article and post something if you didn't care. Weight loss is hard. I congratulate her for successes and appreciate her honesty when she falls. Who cares if its a publicity stunt or not. Don't like it? Don't like her? Don't read about her. And, seriously, don't post.
I am so sorry to that people are so hateful. It's not what you see, it's what people are on the inside. I also wouldn't care if Kristie is large or small as long as she is happy. I have fought weight all of my life and I'm 63 and still fighting it. I hope that some of the people that make these hateful comments get older (over 50) and find out that it just isn't always possible to keep trying. Some of us have really worked had a great deal of our lives. Not setting in front of a computer but actuallly do hard work. Some of us are in great shape, some of us it is an effort just to keep going and keep on trying. So Kristie pay
mind to the fools that just don't know,-– Them
I have always for one thought she is beautiful at any size. Although yo-yo dieting isn't always great on ones boby, maintaining a huge weight loss like she had isn't a cake walk either. I give her credit it for trying again and not giving up. Thanks Kristie for being an inspiration!
Park tell me youre a boarder! ps I ride an 08 Burton T6
yeah, only 300 to go
to zaroyzer: helllllp....they r ganging up on me....hellllp!!!!
Park just throw that bag of doughnuts and they will forget all about you just dont throw them at me.
Im with you on this... She seems to come to the front just when you forget about her. A fat reality show? Jenny craig.
She does this fat thing for one thing MONEY!! so when she has to hear me call her a big fat heffer who looks like shes smelling oprahs ass deal with it...
Gotta love how she blames everyone else for "not telling her" she was getting fat (again?).
You all realize this is a front for the cult named Scientology
I know this. I w ouldnt try to pick her up with out a bobcat
And I used to be into weightlifting!
too bad all you got out of it was a fat head...
She (Lt Saavik) needs to try and use her Vulcan mind meld trick with a skining person to lose weight.
Maybe if she had a job, she wouldn't need to use her weight as a way of keeping her name in the news. Tarrantino, got a gig for Kirstie?
WHY do I care?
I used to like her before she became such a trash mouth. And she's so loud. Read ladies are soft and classy. However I do wish her well with the weight loss.
Nope she's not soft and classy shes soft and cushy kinda like the pillsbary dough boy. (Sorry about the spelling)
She is soooooo sad! I do agree with the "push the plate away" statements. No one made her fat but herself. And parkcitybrian...stop talking! We've all had enough of you
I saw Kirstie Alley in an airport in Kansas last week and she's right: she did look thinner. Keep it up, Kirstie!
... and this affects my life how?
It is my considered opinion that some of you people need psychological help. If you can't see that this woman is using her former status as a TV star to promote a sick nation wide pity party and making money in the process then please seek professional help. Or maybe youre just STUPID. take your pick.
yep...bunch of sheeps...kinda/sorta like the predominant types here in utah...you know...the ones with 5 or 6 "sister wives" (fortunately i live in park city which is soooo unlike the rest of utah).
other folks "need psychological help"? Pot, meet kettle........
No one told her she was fat ? Is she serious ? Has she been totally blind to the press coverage done on her ballooning weight ? Can't believe she expects us to believe this yet again. She knew she was fat to begin with and that's why she went through Jenny Craig. When she finished, she passed the torch on to Valerie Bertinelli, who in turn passed it on to Sarah Rue. Kirstie meanwhile went back to her old ways, and ballooned up again. I don't believe she'll ever stop yo-yo-ing back and forth, because she refuses to fully commit to it. Kirstie come back and talk to the public when you've gotten rid of the weight and kept it off for a whole year. Then I'll share your joy.
I bet she finds it real quick...
ok, you all can say nasty things all you want, but its very difficult for people who have low self esteem (lack of believing in one's own abilities) to lose weight and keep it off. I'm proud of her, hope she is able to actually deal with the loss...meaning able to adjust to the new weight, one pound at a time, and keep it off. More power to Kristy – one pound at a time darlin!!! Didn't put it on in a day, don't expect to take it off in a day or short time. Its taken me 3 years to work off and keep off the excess weight too, one pound at a time. I'll be watching you girl!!! You Rock!!!
You guys are so mean! Poor lady is doing the best she can and you guys are awful!
Having said that...This broad will always be fat and will never be happy until she accepts it!
Sorry George, but she's not doing the best she can, otherwise, she wouldn't have gotten fat in the first place, second place and now, the third place.
Too bad she's still a fat slob.
I'm so sick of this big-head woman. It's like her weight keeps her in the media conscience. WHY? So tired of these "no-self" control stars thinking that the masses are concerned with their weight issues. Once is enough already. It's a never ending weight story with this woman ever since her 15 minutes were up. Just goes to show you that it's not about Jenny Craig, but the person stuffing their gut.
She's a nasty hog, who cares
Now that i take a closer look it does seem like she just caught a nice wiff of a naaaasty fart!
You'd think a Scientology "Clear" would be able to do a better job of managing her weight...I mean, since she's learned to exceed/manipulate Matter, Energy, Space & Time (MEST) & what-have-you.
WHY does Kirsty think anyone cares about her weight loss?????? She needs to diet quietly because she makes a fool of herself when she gains back the weight she brags about losing, and she WILL gain back the weight. Kirsty, SHUT UP ALREADY!!!
That is wonderful news! At the current rate of weight loss, in appx. 15 months the world will be rid of her altogether.
Good one! Bravo!
while most of the postings r quite humorous what is really humorous (or pathetic) is that there r some who really and truly dont understand that she is an opportunist who is using her morbid obesity as a vehicle to "feed" her narcissism...and that there r sheeps out there that r buying it...she will have a book out, i would bet on it.
to zorro: plz dont inject religion into this discussion :-)
Why is this woman's weight considered "news" by CNN? Seriously, are you just combing Twitter for any old thing instead of being journalists now?
She's fat, but you know, she's still beautiful. I'd fck her...
I don't care how much you weigh, Ms. Alley, just please reprise your role as Savvik. No geeking out here...I just really thought you played it well. :)
DrFood you aint right lol Even I didn't go there @ GRIMACE hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
HEY!!! IM FAT !! hey im thin!! HEY IM FAT AGAIN!!! hey im thin!!! Who cares you your STUPID!!
SERIOUSLY>>> Is being FAT the ONLY thing Kirsty is ever going to be known for???? She's FAT. Always WAS. Always WILL BE. Kirsty, go away and take your Krispy Kremes with you~~~~~~
Actually in the mid 80's she was seriously one of the 10 best looking women on TV thats why she so pathetic!
Dont you mean KRISTY CREAMS??
MADDOR she's 6'1" ! she was gorgeous when she was on Cheers but that was the 80's when she was 25 or so. Damn she didn't age well!
She is still very hot even with a few extra LBS...I'd ride right up on it, she is beautiful!!!
"a few extra lbs"? what is ur def of a few? the 50 lbs she lost was a result of surgical removal of her left breast, btw
wow !!! only 150 more to go........how long till you blow back up like a balloon
She has the physique of Grimace. Also, that stupid smirk makes her look like she had a stroke.
Nice! Love the grimace reference. I kind of think she looks like she just tried to fart and accidentally crapped in her oversized granny panties.
....I cannot believe how insensitive some of the people posting here can be. Eating disorders is HUGE problem today, especially in the US. Whether it is a model who starves herself or an actress battling obesity, Eating Disorders in this country really effects everyone. For those people who do not have problems with thier weight, you should be grateful, not judgemental. Shame on you. Kirstie Alley is keeping the awareness of Obesity alive, and I am sure it is not easy and has been embarrassing. Look at Allegra Versace who was photographed with her feeding tube (due to her anorexia)while shopping. I am sure all you insensitive bloggers would "hit that" too, feeding tube and all.....Wake up people, its not a career stunt and is in no way helping her acting career (is she even working today???) I think she keeps everyone posted to give hope to people and inspire people to try to maintain their weight. Go Kirstie!
Theres no question its a HUGE problem! Especially when youre sitting next to her on a plane!
"its not a career stunt"? did u actually say that? what else might it be? to "raise awareness of obesity"? ha...i have a bridge i would like u to buy.
def needs to purchase 2 seats...no negotiation at all.
She is still a Scientologist nut case.
I'm reading Superfudge!
how apropos...however, dont mention that to kirstie cuz she will think its dessert.
I feel like I'm in middle school.
Jamie Foxx must be feeding her some "low fat POUND cake".
Pulleease tell me Jamie Foxx is not hitting that. Rob it don't matter if its low fat if you the whole damn cake in one sitting!
Is she ever in the new for anything OTHER than her weight??? How embarrassing for her.
nope and this porker knows no shame nor embarrassment...look up "narcissistic" in the dictionary and u shall find her pic.
Judging from the majorty of responses here, I'd say that there's good cause for discrimination lawsuits based on weight. Lawyers, take note.
jeez...another krispy kreme customer heard from...hey zaroyzer, how 'bout helping out...puhleez
Yo Park I've become attached to my fingers over the years so I choose not to hold food around women of rotund status.
to zaroyzer: def a wise decision!
I've never been with a BIG GIRL so how do you work out the math??? the average male has 7 inches of external anatomy and if she has 9 inches of belly and 10 inches of posterior you come up 2 and 3 inches short respectively. We havent even talked about how big his belly is. Does the guy need some flour and a GPS?????
ha...i have and trust me...it is not fun...just a lot of work, grunting, sweating and finally a kinda/sorta thankfulness (that is has "come" to an end....ewwww
Why did I just read this??? FML.
You know, the first 50 times she lost 50 lbs was amazing, but I am just not thinking this is news anymore... in fact I am not even sure if the Enquirer should print this information.
Apparently, Ms. Alley only cares about her weight when she can get a new endorsement deal to drop some of it. I agree her yo-yo'ing has gotten old and doesn't say much for the plans she endorses. I'm surprised they keep hiring her. At least I give Jared from Subway credit that he's kept it off for years now.
Sorry Terry at 59 she'll NEVER be a knockout again!
BUT she can look good for her age.
And Long as Shes not on top and I'm not sleeping over I'd hit that if I had a couple of shots of good scotch.
Make that at least 5.
and you prove my point.......... LOL
God, you people are sick. So what if she gained weight or lost weight? If you don't like the way she looks, don't read the freaking article!!
time for another krispy kreme, amy
Amy is someone feeling insecure about theyre own weight reading this article and the responses?
@Zaroyzer. LOL! Look who's talking! You come across as one the most insecure poster here
hit it and quit it? i think not, however give her props for coining a new saying, "when kirsties fly"...rather than "when pigs fly"...what do ya think, folks
You go girl.....I am SOOOOOOOOO Proud of you
I love you
Not sure I would tap it, but Kirstie is someone I would love to spend a day with – big or slim.
You know you'd hit that Joe. We can see you now "Pleeeeease baby baby baby pleeeeease let me just SMELL it".
yep...it would prob take a whole day, maybe more tho, to find what u may be looking for (if u get the gist of what im trying to say)
I think Kirstie is cool. I don't care what she looks like, but I'm glad she's happier!
I'm over 50! Waterbeds went out of style when I was in college. If I am to have intimate relations with my wife I'd prefer not to get seasick from the motion of her body. And I sure wouldn't want to be rolled over on and smother.
ha...i commented on ur compliment regarding her losing 50 lbs from her breast removal but it was removed by the "cops".. but thanks
Please don't breed. You are a horrible excuse for a human being.
You're over 50 and you still haven't learned to be kind?
Kirstie surely knows by now that losing the weight is only half the battle, the lesser battle even. The real challenge is keeping the weight off. Changing your lifestyle is hard.
wow...how long did it take to think up these pearls of wisdom?
All you people who run off at the mouth with criticism are idiots. Nutrition and metabolism are waaaaay more complicated than "stop eating and lose weight". Oh yeah, you'll lose weight all right, for about a week. Then your metabolism goes into "famine" mode, and wham! You can start to gain weight on fewer and fewer calories. It won't *matter* how much you exercise either, except that you'll probably drive yourself to a physical breakdown. So unless you have a real clue about these things, just help yourself to a serving of STFU.
yep...said like a true devotee of "krispy creme"
Margo I was 210lbs worked out 5 days a week in my 40's in my 50's i'm 175 + or – and I snowboard. but more than that I know how to stop eating when I've had enough. Like I said earlier JUST PUSH THE PLATE AWAY!
@parkcitybrian: Idiot. No 'crispy creame' here, whatever that is. Sounds like another American culinary abberation.
@Zaroyzer: Good for you. But you still think your personnal experience is all there is to it. Your comments are overly simplistic and ignorant. And BTW, you still need to learn how to STFU.
You are right Margo. Too bad most of the mean people posting are ignorant.
The negative tone of nearly all the posts reflects how tired people are of Kristie's public struggles with weight. When she's heavy, she announces it to the world and cashes in with a sitcom. When she's losing weight, we have to hear about how motivated she claims to be as she hawks the latest fad diet for profit. The bottom line is that she is not a happy person and uses food as a crutch. She, like most overweight people, don't have the willpower to take it off and keep it off. I feel badly for her and wish her luck.
I wonder why most of you have to post something cruel. Kirstie has a heart just like all of us and why hurt her feelings like you are doing? It can't be easy losing and gaining but she's having some success so why not be supportive of her rather than your mean comments. I'm proud of you Kirstie! Keep up the hard work! You can do it! The rest of you.......be nice. Our country is full of negative and you all are contributing. Stop it!
ha.."stop it"? why? she is such an easy target (make that "big target")...she is nothing more than a narcissistic, talent-challenged tool who is trying to use her faded celebrity to make some $$$ at the expense of the truly fatties.
Baby, I miss you. Can we talk about this? We were meant for each other. Baby?
ha...i can see that the "chubby chasers" r in the house...ewww
Kirstie Alliey is hot no matter how much she weighs!
how the hell is this news?.... fail!
For the children in the audience, it only gets better as you get older, if you have the right partner. Experience brings knowledge and knowledge is power. The trash talking clowns posting here spend most of their down time with Widow Thumb and her four daughters.
ParkcityBrian you are a sick puppy LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!
breaking news...this just in!!! her weight loss resulted from the removal of her left breast!!!!!
My question to you is after you lost those 60 lbs did you still look a little drunk in pictures? And just how big were you when you started losing??
Let's see... A beautiful mature woman with admitted self-control problems. Perhaps my last and only hope. I am here for you, K!
Sorry Terry at 59 she'll NEVER be a knockout again! BUT she can look good for her age. And Long as Shes not on top and I'm not sleeping over I'd hit that if I had a couple of shots of good scotch. Make that at least 5. Maybe more!
No amount of alcohol would make me hot to any man. I've got wranklez!
Touc'he, Zaroyzer; knock-out was a tad over the top.
Hey Guys, will you visit SaveStan.ORG a frirnd of mine with 4 babies is fighting for his life....... Thanks
must be a slow news day today....
In the last 5 years the housing market has shown more stability than Kirstie Alley's scale.
If all of you don't care about her gaining/losing weight than why the hell are you reading the story and leaving your ridiculous and immature comments??
I've lost 60 pounds over the last year and a half, and it is the absolute hardest thing I've ever done in my life. I'm addicted to food, just like Kirstie is, and it's not any different than being addicted to cigarettes, alcohol or drugs. But since all of you naysayers are all perfect than I don't suppose you'll know what I'm talking about.
Good job Kirstie – keep it up! You look great!
Well said Lu Ann.
If she lost all the excess weight and nixed the extremely unflattering blonde hair color for a rich brown hue , she'd be a knock-out again.
Just push the plate away Damn how hard is it?
Fat People & Smokers = 2010's version of "N*gros"
She's hot at whatever weight – Luv Ya Kirstie :)
Such a train wreck.
Damn I used to dream about her when she was on Cheers but damn my dream is a nightmare! I could see myself smothering when she rolls over at night. And Lord knows I wouldn't hold a cupcake with her around. I'd be afraid she'd eat my hand without looking.
WHO CARES!!! "Girl don't go away mad...girl just go awayyyyyyy
thats all she is known for now...getting fat and then losing it.
50 lbs! Good for you, Kirstie...now go and lose the other 100 lbs.
Looks like a lot of you have never had a weight issue. For some it is a daily battle. Appear some of us have to literally starve themselves to try and fit in with all the " perfect " people of the world.
I applause her being truthful to the public and to herself. She is a beautiful woman and I hope she keeps up the good work!!
To quote an old SNL skit that targeted Oprah: "She's fat; she's thin; she's fat; she's thin — just pick a body and stick with it!!"
Yeah, all in the boobs.
the fact that she is 59 years old and just lost 50 pounds is incrediable! I have seen teenagers, no twenty-somethin gladies that can't do that. Lots of women struggle with their weight – but she keeps fighting it...I'm not sure how healthy the up and down weight is for her heart ...but I commend her efforts – never throw in the the towel – just strive to make tomorrow better than yesterday and if she can do that at almost 60 years old – well it should be a calling for all the lazy ones enjoying their pity party right this second! Go head Kristi! P.S. to the person who said no one cares – YOU CARE because not only did you click the article, read it, but you posted to it as well! idiot!
Hope you 2 fat @sses will be happy together!
There is a skinny person inside her trying to get out. Maybe 2 skinny people....
What no one has mentioned is that her "Organic Liason" is a Church of $cientology side project. The "Church" is hoping this "diet" will gain in popularity ("Gosh Kristie's lost so much weight, maybe I'll try it too!!!!") and get people to spend their money, which will fund the Cult. If you research the "diet" it's basically vitamin supplements and drinking tons of water, which is essentially a Dianetics practice. It's just a ploy to get people to join $cientology, start drinking their kool-aid, and spending your hard earned $$$ on a "diet" that's not going to work!
I don't believe she JUST weighed 230 lbs. More like 330. Unless she is just 5 feet tall it would be more believable, but methinks she is taller than that.
Kristy, we weren't born yesterday.
I totally agree with you. If she had said she was over 300 lbs the world would have gasped. I'm sure she was too ashamed to admit it.
Who cares- she gets fat, loses weight and gains more back and this is supposed to be news??? There are far better heartwarming stories about there about real people than to read about the problems of a fat assed celebrity.
well listen the oh mighty self-righteous one! then what are YOU doing here wasting all your 'valuable' time?
The Skipper ate nothing but coconuts and he was fat too. Just sayin'....
I think he was eating more than coconuts. Did you see the way Ginger looked at him?
I thought the Skipper always high a very protein diet...hey little buddy?
So, are all the cruel comments meant to get laughs or to hurt people? I'm sure you're succeeding at both. These comment threads are unbelievable sometimes. Where is the caring and understanding? There are far fewer encouraging comments than mean ones. Disturbing.
Next weeks headline:
Kirstie Alley: I've gained 90 pounds
You aint right neither lol !!!!!
Very sad considering how beautiful she used to be. At one time she was one of the hottest women in Hollywood.
well one thing about Kirstie – at least she doesn't give up!! losing weight and keeping it off is hard! bad habits don't form overnight, and breaking them doesn't happen overnight either. many people have to quit smoking 3, 4, 10, 12 times before they actually "quit" for good. dieting is the same for many people. I admire KA because she keeps trying. she doesn't just give up and say "oh well, I'm fat, too bad" – and hopefully this time she will succeed and won't gain the weight back.
So, I guess that means that Jenny Craig won't be getting anymore money from her? I like Kirstie too.
you were hot doing Cheers... you'rs still hot.
Way to go Kirstie! Your "Big Life" show is funny and AWESOME!
What's with all the haters? Obesity is an epidemic in this country due to all the processed crap the FDA allows to be sold. With it being an epidemic I find it hard to believe that all of you are thin and fit. Good job Kirstie I think you look great.
Keep the weight off for a year....now THAT would be a story. You're lack of dieting control is not news anymore, Kirstie.
Maybe she should lay off the double cheeseburgers and the CherryGarcia ice cream.
I hope everyone knows this is a front for the Church of Scientology. Her diet is just a modified Purification Rundown. This has already been discussed in many other forums, so it is really no secret.
I give her credit – for being that age and wanting to do something about her weight – you see so many people that are FAT and barely can walk or do strenuous exercises and still have bad eating habits. I am glad she is taking the initiative to do something to improve her health. All these people out that that are overweight – do you know what that is doing to your health? wake up people and get on a diet – cut out the fatty foods and the Mountain Dews and get yourselves in SHAPE – I've always liked Kirstie Alley and I am glad SHE IS DOING SOMETHING to improve her health – SO, all of you that have made comments about Kirstie – bite your tongue b/c when she is done loosing her weight – you guys will be WISHING you looked like her. So many of our population is overweight and they don't have the motivation or ambition to do something about it – Valerie Bertinelli of Jenny Craig inspired me and I am still working hard to get where I want to be – i am in my mid 40's and I don't want to be overweight when I hit my 50's
Who cares? She's got the Oprah Syndrome. She loses weight, everyone talks about her. She gets fat and all fo the sudden fades away. She loses weight and all of the sudden she's relevant again and people rave over her weight loss. It's garbage.
I agree. She does look good for 60. Keep the fight going Kristie. In never tire of someone who keeps trying to accomplish a goal.
......she will gain it back and then become a spokesperson for another weight loss product .......
Yeah, she lost the 50 pounds by putting her '50 pound afternoon snack' down. As soon as she picks it back up, 50 pounds, BACK ON!
She looks good for 60.
She sure does.... oh baby
Kirstie Alley lost some weight? Are you sure that isn't just a reprint of the same headline from a year or two ago? I like Kirstie but I'm so tired of hearing about her weight gain/loss/gain/loss, etc, etc. Also, I find it hard to accept that obesity is a "disease". Give me a break! Either stop eating calorie-laden food everyday or get up off your @ss and start engaging in some actual physical activity, maybe even break a sweat. Or, just maybe, you could do both. I'm far from skinny (size 12-14) but I don't blame my weight on on some disease or addiction. I blame it on the fact that I hate exercise. I just started at the gym and everyday I go, I have to force myself. I need to get to that place where I actually enjoy going and start seeing the results. Until I get there, everytime will be a struggle. So many people don't want to suffer through the hard part before they get to the reward. Well, sometimes there's just no way around it. Hopefully Kirstie, and others, will realize and accept this. Then we won't have to read another story about how she got fat again.
Good for you tam! Keep it up. trust me, there is a tipping point with exercise. The longer you stay at it the easier it gets. The easier it gets, the more you can push yourself. Several years ago I was a gymnastics instructor and fitness trainer. One of the most rewarding parts of that experience was seeing someone crest the work/enjoymeny threshold. Once it becomes more of a pleasure than a chore, you will be hooked for life. Good luck, keep at it!
Congratulations Kirstie! You're to be commended for your hard work and your willingness to be public about your weight loss. Keep up the good work! You look great. For all you Negative Nellies who have commented, didn't your mothers teach you that if you can't say something nice then KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT. You need to acquaint yourselves with the word "encouragement" and learn to use it frequently. Sheesh!
Some of us are not bashing Kirstie. We're saying we don't care.
We are saying we are tired of hearing about her – weight's up – weight's down – weight's up – weight's down – it's just boring and it's not news anymore
And we are baffled that when we look for entertainment news, this is what comes up
I don't care about Kirstie Alley but I am sad to see people in this thread saying things like: "Geeeez! If people would just step away from the trough and stop shoveling food into their holes the problem would be solved. I'm so tired of looking at obese people EVERYWHERE!" (Squeeker). Yes, personal responsibility is a factor. But our entire food culture is based on over sized proportions and processed foods that are unhealthy. People are completely ignorant about what is in their food. Our culture is about consumption. This is a big factor in the obesity epidemic in this country. People who make fun of obese people and say hateful things about them need to take a deep breath and think for a minute before they rant on the web.
Thank you for your thoughtful comments, Chris. It's the old...if you haven't walked in their shoes, don't be so quick to cast your stones.
She'll bounce back even fatter than before. Unless you cut out her stomach she won't stop eating for long. It's in her genes.
Put down the fork. Or switch to chopsticks. seriously, how many really fat asians do you see?
I travel often for work. It's funny, the only place in th world I have seen fat asians is in America. We could make somalians fat here.
Should've stayed a Vulcan.
If she would lose the cult of Scientology I might actually care.
Too little, too late. Kirstie, honey, you're old. Doesn't matter how much you weigh anymore.
She certainly is full of herself, isn't she? Who gives a ratzazz what a former tv star weighs or if she loves herself?
Good for you kristy for the weight loss. I m still trying to drop my weight. Enjoy life and keep at it. :D
She used to smoke 5 packs of cigarettes a day. That was right after the Star Trek role. I guess when she stopped putting cigs in her mouth her problems with food began. The Star Trek movie was the first time I saw her and the last time I saw her look good.
She's so dense – light bends around her
I agree with many of the others here – why is this news....again and again and again???
The CNN entertainment page keeps putting out the same tired stories that we've seen twelve times before....
You go Kirstie. People are so judgemental of heavy people and when they do well at losing the weight instead of praising them they always have something negitive to say. They are the idoits!
I bet all the people leaving mean comments are fat themselves and can't handle that SHE lost weight and they can't ;-) just sayin'
I'm not fat. 6'1" 190lbs. I run or bike every morning, followed by weight training or isometric exercises on an opposite schedule. 45 minutes to an hour max before I go to work and one day on the weekend. I eat a banana and almonds for breakfast every day. Drink one cup of coffee and ice water all day. Sensible lunch and small dinner high in protiens and god carbs and low in fat and bad carbs. I don't eat any junk food or soda, never have. My only vice is beer, and I exercise enough to work off the calories.
My wife follows a similar routine except that she exercises in the afternoon because she works very early in the morning. She is 45 years old 5'8" and 135. She does not look a day over 30. eating right and exercising not only keeps weight in check it improves every other aspect of your health and just plain makes you look better and healthier.
Kirstie is fat. She has admitted that he lack of self control with regard to diet and exercise contribute to it. She yo yo's. That is the worst thing you can do to your body. Change your life style. Get healthier, live longer, live better. It is actually very easy.
I have always thought Kirstie was beautiful no matter what size she was. Some of you mean people are probably just plain ole fugly. For sure on the inside.
HEY KRISTI HAVE U HEARD OF THE LAP BAND!! U SHOULD GET IT!!
Lefty, I don't know if you are "kidding" or not, but that is a more than viable alternative, and one which I myself took three years ago. I can empathize with Kirstie's yo-yo-ing. Did it myself for 50 years...and then had enough. The lapband is a tool to help you in the behavioral modification, and if you do it right, it works like a champ. But it takes hard work. I am a success story for the band. My weight is where it was when I was 20. I've lost about 100 pounds. And I have changed my eating habits. I look at food now as a "fuel" rather than a "pleasurable experience".
she should try the meth or crack diet....or as a last resort be on "Survivor", hahahahahahahahaha
Don't hate, you idiots. She's had it hard. Anyone with overweight issues has it hard. It's easy for all of you to criticize her effords to loose the weight and keep it off, you might all be skinny. I back you up 1000% percent. Keep on your Journey to weight loss. There's alot of us out here who love you and support you.
She's a talented, attractive actress. Too bad her weight is all we, and SHE, seems able to talk about.
Attractive? only if you like old fat women.
How many times do I have to hear a non-story about Kirstie Alley losing weight? She's fat, she's not as fat as she used to be, she's fat again, she's not as fat as she used to be again...BORING, POINTLESS!!! Shouldn't CNN be spending more time reporting on actual news, like Lindsay Lohan, into rehab, out of rehab, into rehab again, out of rehab again, into rehab again...I am stupider for having seen this headline.
If Anna Nicole Smith had lived another 20 years, instead of dying at 39, she might have looked like this. At least Anna Nicole had big boobs and banged Prince Frederic von Anhalt. What did Kirstie Alley ever do?
"At least Anna Nicole had big boobs' -- You are aware that big boobs are just fat? Kind of like lard.
Actually, they are just silicone.
ummmm .. she made more money than you'll ever SEE, goldifreak
Everything's OK. She turned around and found it on her a**.
Diets suck and will never truly work. Change your lifestyle > diets
Stop scowling at me Kirsty – i was only thinking about it, but I never touched you.
AGAIN??????? PUUUULLLLEEEAAASSSEEE.........just except your size the way it is and let the rest of us alone!!!!!
Hey "Mama Cass"–I guess you've never had a problem in your life. And guess what? I care! Bravo to "Ellen" and Kirstie! Let's hear it for compassion!
@Amanda-"I agree with Ellen! Obesity is an addiction and very hard to beat. I deal with this myself on a daily basis... and it is horrible."
Duct tape your arms together. Easiest weight loss program out there.
Can't feed your face, can't gain weight.
Pretty simple eh?
Obesity=Addiction? Ya...and suicide=curing a cold.
Fatties = clowns who need to go the way of the dodo bird and dinosaurs.
Must be nice being perfect you. Oh, except for your personality. cause your understanding and compassion are astounding, not! Consider yourself fortunate indeed if you never have to watch your figure in the public eye at nearly 60 years of age. It gets harder with age folks, especially for women, who um, are more judged on their looks to begin with.
She's so fat that small objects orbit her.
She's so fat she wears an asteroid belt.
She's so fat her blood type is rocky road.
Blah, blah, blah. She has lost any credibility.
I agree with Ellen! Obesity is an addiction and very hard to beat. I deal with this myself on a daily basis... and it is horrible. I can only imagine how hard it would be being in the public eye. I am happy for Kristie. Good luck to her and to all of us who struggle with this as well.
But you CAN CONTROL what foods you eat! Bet you are NOT living off of fruits, vegetables and lean proteins...more likely you are shoveling JUNK into your mouth and saying "poor-little-ol-me"!
Valerie...not everything is food. Some people just cant take the weight off..no matter what they do...
Im considered obese...yet im in the army..im 5'0 and 162..i can run miles..do situps and pushups...but i cant lose the weight...i dont eat fast food..and i dont have medical issues..pre pregnancy i was 162..7 months later im back to 162...
Soo dont judge and assume shes eating junk..
I bet if u was as fat as her you be doing the same thing..
Man this is hilarious! A bunch of you say "WHO CARES?!?!" Well DUH you do obviously if you came and spent the time to read the story AND comment on it. :P
Its always good to see that same old weak minded response – it never ever gets old again today
Drazul Its always good to see that same old weak minded response – it never ever gets old again today @@@ As well as the "who cares" posts or the "who?" posts. If you don't care then don't read the article and post "who cares," because the rest of us don't care.
I care to help her. She just has to drink 30 cans of cola a day, like this slim, shapely, girl on TLC "FREAKY EATERS" show. She's been doing it for 15 years (during calcium storing years) has lovely skin, teeth, hair, and shape. She also has candy bars and twinkies with her soda. This looks like a winner for Kirsti.
Just as vulgar and unsavory as Lady Gaga, but at the other end of the barn.
Lost 50 lbs. eh? Where?
We love you Kirstie! Keep going on your weight loss! Shine brightly, be example to those who are struggling. Looks like your independence strikes a nerve in some people. YOU GO GIRL!
Iwould only care if there was another Look Who's Talking coming out soon.
Okay, I've read about a hundred of these comments. I need a cookie. Or two. Maybe some ice cream. Let's see ...
We need to care not only about Kirstie, but about all those who are struggling with their weight. Obesity is like any other addiction that must be fought to successfully overcome it. We do not want our family members or friends to develop health problems and that is what happens to those who neglect their food addictions. I do not have this problem, but pray for those who do, and sometimes they also find strength that way.
Ellen, You are so correct.. losing weight and keeping it off is a lifttime job, and I commend any of us that that do that.... I just took off 60 lbs.... so I can relate to it for sure.
Geeeez! If people would just step away from the trough and stop shoveling food into their holes the problem would be solved. I'm so tired of looking at obese people EVERYWHERE!
Whatever. It's called pushing the plate away, getting up off your lazy azz, and going for a walk. I don't feel the least bit sorry for fat people. I am more inclined to be compassionate to a drug addict, as it has been PROVEN how chemicals re-wire the brain which leads to addiction.
Thank you! A thoughtful and intelligent response! Instead of all the maliciousness. Kudos to her for BEING nearly 60 and being able to get it off. Gets harder with age.
Valerie.. you're an idiot.
Valerie, so the same way a fat person can do all that you say in here, so and addict can do, it only takes a couple of times of trying drugs to become an addict.
Valerie and Squeaker,
It's not that easy, especially if you're a food addict. For the vast majority of my life, food has been the drug that has comforted me, helped me celebrate, calmed me down when I'm stressed, etc. In most places in the country, there are not the resources available for those that are dealing with this, as most of the focus on addiction is on alcohol and drugs and the focus on eating disorders is mostly on those dealing with anorexia and bullemia, and compulsive overeating/food addiction are mostly neglected, with those dealing with it being chastised and ridiculed for being fat/obese instead of being helped.
I still question where I got the strength, but slowly but surely, I've been able to change my eating habits. Instead of eating junk food, I snack on fruits and vegetables, I work out 5-6 times a week at the gym, and have been able to lose 65 pounds. However, I still have my slip-ups, and unfortunately haven't been able to find the support I need to help with my compulsive overeating (12 step programs seem to be too much of carte blanche to have a victim mentality...and I'm NOT a victim!). I'm not giving up, though...
Anyhow, just a thought from someone who's been there.
Jaci – Congrats, keep it up!!
Ellen, thanks for reminding us of how we should feel. The tendency to gain weight is not only attributed to addicition but to hereditary as well. We have descended from the survivors who could manage to turn a mouse into five pounds of fat storage and live off it for weeks. Now that we no longer need to do so, our bodies are slow to realize it. Most of the mean comments come from those who would have been the first to starve during a famine.
Ellen thanks for the HAPPY responce, It is nice to have someone out there with a hand out to help vs putting them down, If all of the NEGATIVE repliers,had a WEIGHT, Alchohol, Drugs addiction I dont believe they would be acting this way(to bad) Remember the song (temptations) Beauty is only skin deep??? Have a FANTASTIC DAY:)
I agree – it is tough, especially as one gets older. I give Kirstie credit for publicizing how tough it really is. I've always loved her comedy roles in movies, and look forward to seeing her in future ones!
Valerie and Squeeker: A cocaine addict can stay away from cocaine. An alcoholic can stay away from booze. A smoker can stay away from cigarettes. A food addict cannot stop eating. Do you get the difference? It's basically the same disorder, a need to switch off emotionally and not deal with inner pain, but for those who turn to food for comfort, it is most difficult. They still have to eat something, and with "bad" foods easily available everywhere you turn, how do you ignore it all? If you don't understand compulsive behavior, stop posting your cruel and ignorant comments.
Amen, Denizen Kate. Valerie, your stupidity and lack of compassion are far more detrimental to society than are fat people. What if you had a child and he or she were fat, and you couldn't figure out why? I have known overweight people who consume half as much food as I do and work out on a regular basis, and are still overweight. In many cases it can be attributed to genuine medical problems, such as endocrine deficiencies and side effects from medications such as steroids. I certainly hope nothing ever befalls you that causes any weight gain. How will you face yourself when you have such hatred for fat people? You pathetic fool.
Gee, and I'm so tired of looking at and listening to intolerant f-ing morons like you EVERYWHERE. What a funny coincidence. Obese people can lose weight. What can you do to improve your IQ? Absolutely nothing.
Her comment, "No one was tell me I was fat. I was like a bankrobber getting away with it." Like so many have already said, WHO CARES. You know your fat. What does society 'say' have to do with it? Gesee, grow up...your almost 60.
The dyed blond hair needs to go, it makes her look harsher than normal.
I am wondering what is up with the expression on her face.... If I had dropped 50 I'd be grinning like the Cheshire cat, and she's standing there smirking like she's getting a colonoscopy without anesthesia. ;>
Who gives a crap? Is this really how she's staying relevant? By gorging herself to epic proportions and then "learning" how to be healthy? If she "learned' how to be healthy, she'd stop this. This isn't news people.
It's always funny when she gets fat again. Maybe that's her schtick now. Thanks for making me laugh, Yo Yo Ma Ma!
Organic Liaison= fad diet; she'll pack it back on in no time. Maybe if she quit "dieting" and changed her eating habits for life then she could keep the lbs off.
hahaha you WISH you looked that good
Thank you Nathalie....diets don't work. Change your eating habits and workout.
Organic Liaison is not a diet, its a healthy organic way of eating. It is reduce calorie because that only makes sense but her products are completely organic and natural. I've been using them and I'm actually eating healthy and making the life changes that Kirstie is trying to share with people. Why do people knock things they don't know about? I don't get why people need to tear down others for their own enjoyment. She is doing something good... leave it at that and be happy for her and the people she is helping!
seriously who cares? You're 60 years old, you could weigh 300lbs for all I care.
LOL,you think 60 is old??..bet you think you will never be 60?? try and stop it.....60 is the new 40.....
Oh, you young whippersnappers (that's called a joke, kids)...
Have you looked at pics of Sophia Loren lately? She's 76 and looks just incredible. There are many gorgeous women age 60 and over, and most of them are not skeletons with skin like so many of the younger people. Today's version of beauty has become so androgynous it's ridiculous.
I'm so tired of hearing about her weight. Is there nothing else good going on in her life? She is a pretty and funny woman, but all she talks about is weight. She really needs some new material.
Kirstie, nobody cares anymore.
If you don't care, why did you even click to read the article. All you people with your cold comments which demean others that are making an effort to improve their lives should just keep your poison to yourselves. And while you're at it, go jump off a bridge. You'd be doing the rest of us who want to improve life a favor.
Right on Brett, it's hard enough for anyone to change – they need encouragement, not discouragement! I bet if all of you who are putting her down, looked at yourself – you would find the need for change too. Grow up and keep on keeping on Kristie!
i guess she finally got rid of that chip on her shoulder
Give me a break Sarah, if you didn't care you wouldn't have clicked on the link and posted a comment. People like you are what is destroying this country, perpetual compaliners, and just plain boring.
Ha Ha....sounds about right
she will soon find 100. woah she is 59? damn!
she's definitely on the 1 step forward, 2 steps back diet plan. i give her 40 days before she's stuffing her face full of twinkies
I can see the Onion headline now: "Kirstie Alley tweets that she plans to lose, regain 80 pounds."
nah, i give her 9. she will gain some within 3. I don't think she's gonna become a whale again until next year though. It takes time.
She is a beautiful woman at 59 yrs old, no matter what size she is.
she lost 50 pounds? probably lost it in all those folds of fat around her gut :P
Liz Taylor, Opra Winfrey, Kristie amoung many others suffer from this yo-yo weight gain/loss. They all have the will the get it off, but everyone seems to have the same problem about keeping it off. There are some things yet to learn about the body and why some people are destined to fight weight forever. The problem is it visiable and everyone notices. I really have such empathy for anyone who has deal with this.
I am so over caring about her battles...we all have our own and come on...its because she has nothing else to get into the media about.
This is newsworthy on CNN's main page? Hey every one! My cat Mr. Whiskers just puked up a terd. I'm gonna make headlines! Kirstie, Kirstie, Kirstie I'm not mad at ya. I'm mad at people thinking this is news. Good for you, I would share that with friends and family to. NO easy feat. @CNN hey "Kirstie Alley stopped yo-yoing and is back to her ol" self. She landed a role in something that's not a comercial yesterday..." Now that would be newsworthy in the entertainment section. Sorry – just saying.
Me too player! Any guys up in here that say they wouldn't are either gay or lying!
Joe: Wait till you turn 50 and see if you still think 59 is "geriatric."
LMAO! Word, me too. Nvr been hogging before but theres always room for a first time! All jokes aside, she's still hot... chunky but funky!
Maggie, I'm 46 and my wife is 45. My wife is stunningly beautiful, and I am quite sure she will still be in five years. She has taken very good care of herself her entire life and looks fantastic for it. Kirstie is nearly 60 and looks like 100 miles of bad road. She has gone from obese, to almost obese, to morbidly obese, and back to obese for years. there is absolutely nothing that I find even remotely attractive about her.
Kirstie has lost 50 lbs, great, drop another 30 and keep it off for the rest of your life and I will happy for her. Until she manages to do that, I am not impressed, and even if I were single I sure as heck would not be tapping that.
Me too,like the thick hips and booty on her.
How could you miss it???
Joe, your gorgeous wife must be thrilled to have a winner like you!
She may have lost the 50lbs... but her a$$ found it.
It would be a smegmatic nightmare, gentlemen.
You know what they say, Fat bottomed girls, you make the rock and roll world go round!
Who cares if she loses 30 more pounds, after she loses it she will just put it back plus more. So who cares.
@joe.........I'm betting you haven't "tapped" anything in a long time. I also bet you don't even come close to exercising like you say. The only truth in your posts is that you drink beer. It is sad to see but an alcoholic like you has to defend his drinking in a web chat about weight loss. Don't worry joe, no one will take away your beer
Christ, isn't this like the 100th 50 pnds she has lost? She's lost more weight than most semi's weigh loaded!
I would slap those Vulcan ears onto her and do her from behind!!!!!!!!!
wow, she lost 50 pounds, bet she finds at least 100 when she looks for it...lol
you guys must be hard up . remember that picture is not real.
