Kirstie Alley is no stranger to dieting and in her latest bid to knock off the pounds, the 59-year-old actress has turned to the new food line Organic Liaison. She most recently tweeted: “I’ve lost over 50 lbs…and I’m having the time of my of my life…30 more to goooooo.”
The star of Cheers fame revealed her trimmer figure in a TwitPic of herself and “men friends” she met on a trip recently in Italy. “Back from Italy,” she wrote. “Found the love of my life….turned out it was me.”
Last year the single mom of two confessed that she her weight shot back up to 230 pounds. This after initially losing 75 pounds via Jenny Craig and publicizing it on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2006.
Kirstie Alley’s latest battle to lose weight was documented on her A&E reality show The Big Life. As reported on Today, Alley acknowledged in April that she was in denial about gaining the weight back.
“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 is quoted as saying on the Daily Mail. “And nobody was saying ‘You’re fat.’ I was like a bank robber who was getting away with it.”
Other celebs with weight issues include Kevin Federline, Kelly Osbourne and Jessica Simpson.
