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

food is 70% responsible for weight loss and exercise 30%, but Exercise is need to keep your body healthier.

I just love that Kirstie Alley regardless of her weight. She is always funny!
But as a fan, I must admit I was worried for her health because as with anybody else, your health is in jeopardy when you are overweight.
Congrats to her!

who is perfect? it’s great to see someone out there that is honest, and that struggles–like the majority of people in the US that need to lose weight. it is very hard to find that motivation AND keep it!!! i pretty much figured people would be tearing her down. how dare her have difficulty with losing weight!! come on, Kirstie, you are not a real person with real feelings. (sense the sarcasm) it sickens me that people in America are so close minded and judgmental. not everyone starts a diet one time and has success in keeping it off. let’s be real. Kirstie, I congratulate you! if you found the way for you, awesome! (i’m still searching for mine) you are a lovely person no matter what you weigh. i know i see big women that are still beautiful. we are all women and share so many of the same experiences. i think we need to support each other more.

those 50 pounds she lost were her legs. where are her legs?!

I need at least 100 off also. But some people like me can not afford to by products and healthy foods on a SS income.
