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

She seems to have made a nice little career for herself by getting fat and then losing weight. Unless she learns how to stop the yo-yo dieting and weight gain, we’ll be reading this same story about her for years to come.

Good for her for dropping the pounds (AGAIN), but I have my doubts she keeps it off. How many times has she done this already? Her weight’s like a yo-yo..up and down all the time. Hard to be inspired by someone like that who can’t stay commited to KEEPING it off. Give her a year, she’ll be huge again.

I wish her all the best and I must admit I am sceptical. She has such an addictive personality, sure she is high on this now, but can she do it for the long haul. Look how awesome she did on Jenny Craig. But I will only think good and positive thoughts – go Kirstie!

I’ll buy the stuff at GNC. it sure seems to be working for Kirstie.

I applaud her weight loss…just think what she is offering for her membership, and the price of her pills is not cheap. If you would like the same thing she is offering for logging your meals go to sparkpeople.com they offer this and much more for free! There is also a community of people, and recipes.

I absolutely love Kirstie Alley, and dealing with weight loss is not an easy thing for some of us! She is doing well and looks great! She will lose the other 40! I know she will.

Losing weight and keeping it off is a struggle but I’m beginning to think she is making it a career. Frankly I’m tired of hearing about her “ups and downs”.
