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

Good for her!!! I wish her the best on those 40 more pounds.
I need/want to lose 60 and just getting started seems almost impossible.

That’s wonderful for her, but I have to wonder if it will last. You can’t lose weight drinking elixers and taking pills and expect it to stay off. Eating organic and healthy is great, but at the same time it’s unhealthy for a person to rely on elixirs.

with so many people being overweight, I think these stories are great and very motivational. After seeing Jennifer Hudson’s story, I was inspired to join weight watchers, and I have lost 9 lbs in 2 and half weeks. Keep these stories coming. I like reading their actual weight, it keeps them human.

I think at any size this women is stunning….Congrat Kristie on your weight lose…the fact that you go up and down in your weight like most shows us that being famous doesn’t always mean perfect….Your a great inspiration..!!!

Very happy for her! Way to go! I also struggle with weight. I’ve lost 20 lbs so far but have been trying since March 2010. I have about 40 to go and hearing stories like this reinforce my drive to not quit. Thanks!

Candids of her show her looking nowhere near as good as she does here- and how convenient most of her is hidden. She’s a yoyo dieter, always has been and it’s ridiculous that she’s some kind of weight loss beacon when she’s never successfully lost it and kept it off.

I think 40 more pounds is ridiculous. She is a tall woman. Not sure how tall, but 40 more lbs would put her below 140lbs. She would be model thin by then. I think Hollywood needs new standards.

Good for her! I only hope this time around she can keep it off. She seems to be somewhat of a yo-yo dieter. At 25 lbs above my ideal weight I knew it was time to do something. I joined weight watchers, lost 20 lbs and have kept it off for over 2 yrs now. Weight loss is a lifestyle change not some miracle pill or drink.

Kirstie needs to just STOP THE YOYOING!! She obviously doesn’t know how badly she’s treating her body !! she’s not a kid any longer..almost 60!! get real girl..either keep it on on keep it off!! and keep taking care of your face ’cause that’s a biggie when it comes to getting older and keeping attractive. hide behind tables and chairs and tent dresses, but keep that pretty face healthy!!
