Following in the footsteps of weight-loss winner Marie Osmond, former Go-Gos front-woman Belinda Carlisle has been appointed the newest spokesperson for NutriSystem. “It’s pretty well known that I’ve struggled with my weight,” Belinda tells PEOPLE of her decision to start the weight-loss program a year ago. She went on to lose 20 pounds in the first four months, “And I kept it off,” she says. Although in the ’80s she may have been singing “Our Lips are Sealed,” she’s more than happy to discuss how the plan’s healthy-eating approach kept her hooked. “I’m not about deprivation at all,” she says. “When I moved to the south of France 10 years ago it taught me to celebrate food and not make it an enemy — people in my business usually do. When this came along it was really easy for me,” she says of the plan.

Hm, does the same pro blogger who writes all of the comments for Usweakly write the comments here, too? Or can real readers post their opinions on here in peace in quiet without being abused by the pro bloggers? I have never seen a more trashy web site than Usweakly.

She looks better than ever. Like wine, she gets better with age. Smart decision on making her a spokeswoman

I wish these weightloss programs would have people that are in the news now. Marie Osmond, Kirstie Alley, Phylicia Rashad, Belinda Carlisle – these people haven’t done anything significant in years. As well, it would be nice to see people in their 20’s or 30’s using the programs – or are all THOSE people size zeros?

Belinda Carlisle defies time. She is absolutely awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Belinda Carlisle would be a great spokesperson for any product. She is the epitome of class and for fifty she’s ultra hot. As a matter of fact, she is much hotter and desirable than Britney, Paris, or any other of these younger females flooding the tabloids today.
Her voice, her style can never be duplicated. Obviously, one of the most unique and under appreciated singers ever to record.

Great spokeswoman!!!!!! I’ve seen Belinda live 4 times and she always looks incredible. Being the same age and knowing the struggle to keep the weight off, who better to promote a diet product.
Looking at Belinda, 50 is definitely the new 39!!!
