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

If you can find a way to lose weight and keep it off, which is key, I say go for it. I found the New Sonoma Diet, which is very similar to South Beach, and it worked wonders on my eating life style. I stay away from processed foods and sugars and white flours, and I have lost nearly 40 pounds since February. I don’t exercise either, which is not good and I’m not advocating not exercising, although it is definitely a part of my next step. It’s been slow going, but the results are real. Good for you Kirstie and everyone who has made that step to a healthier you.

She is inspiring!!! I lost 50 lbs but have gained about 20 back. I think it’s time to get back on the train

I kinda have to agree with Megan. I don’t wish her any bad luck, but she’s way up and down with this weight thing. I mean, it’s normal to regain 10, 15, even 20 but she’s gaining 50, 60, 70. And for her to be a spokesperson for any weight-loss program right now, is premature. However, I wish her success in her quest.

Wow, she looks great!

Kudos for her on her weight loss, and having the willpower to keep going.

Just as an aside, does anybody else find the picture of her and the guys strange? Look beneath the table–Kirstie and the guy immediately to her right (left side of pic), their lower bodies are missing. You can see the pedestal of the table. Why is it so difficult to just take a pic, without trying to always ‘tweak’ it?

She is absolutely beautiful at any weight.
Can’t believe she’s 59.
