Take note, Jamie Foxx. Kirstie Alley, who is playfully unabashed in her ongoing quest for Foxx, is even more “shag-ready”. In fact, after tipping the scales at 228 lbs. last year, the actress has dropped 50 lbs.–and isn’t looking back. “THE GOOD NEWS….I’ve lost 50 lbs!!! THE BAD NEWS…I have 40 more to go!!! …lol…..at least I’m more than half the way there!!,” she Tweeted on Oct. 4. What’s her secret? Staying faithful to Organic Liaison, the weight-loss program she launched in March, as well as finding support and inspiration from fans who took the dieting plunge with her. “Thousands have now had huge success with my new weight loss program,” Alley, 59, tells PEOPLE. “Nothing makes me happier than reading about their extraordinary triumphs…They inspire me to continue on my own journey and I am grateful for them.”  As the country’s first USDA-approved organic weight loss plan that specifically targets cravings, curbs appetites and boosts energy, Organic Liaisons will soon be available at GNC stores, the first time its been available outside of the company website, www.organicliaison.com. Two years in the making, Alley says she wanted to create a weight-loss system that doesn’t include “meals that I can keep in my closet,” she says on the Organic Liaison site. “Also one that would actually improve mine and my kids health along with shrinking my awesomely ample bottom.” As for her gradually shrinking body, Alley has perspective. Tweeting on Oct. 6: “I’m far from SKINNY….but I’m at least far from Shamu …no insult to Shamu intended.” –Elizabeth Leonard

Wasn’t she an actress once? Sad that she traded a true profession for weight gain and reality TV.

Not my idea of a role model.

I find it real hard to afford these weight loss programs, why do they have to be so expensive??

I think it’s wonderful that she is losing the weight, not just to look but to be healthy. Keep up the good work Christie :)

There is NO WAY she started at 228 and she’s given false impressions. First of all, she was closing to 300 lbs and secondly, she’s covered up in the picture shown so one can truly see how much she’s lost. While I applaud her efforts to lose weight she is lying about her starting weight as well as her current weight. AGain, there is NO WAY she started at 228 and there is NO WAY she is currently 178 now (228 minus 50 pounds). She needs to be honest in order to be credible.

Try cutting out sugar and all processed flour. I dropped 25 pounds after getting a blood glucose scare.
