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

Yes she needs to stop “yoyoing” as some of you so gracefully put it. But she is the perfect representation of most American women who struggle with their weight. I say “Rock on Kirstie!”. Hopefully for her (as most yo-yo dieters hope for themselves)she will be able to maintain a healthy weight from here forward! Stay positive!

If she “drops 40 more pounds” there will be little left, or so it would seem by that outrageously photo shopped picture! THAT woman with those men WEIGHS about 130 or 140 pounds!!!!! STOP lying and confess you REALLY have 80 more pounds to lose BEFORE you even reach 150!!!!

Weigh to goal Kirstie! I have been on a weight loss program myself since May and have lost 35 lbs so far! 15 more to go to goal! It can be done, but the key is discipline, changing your eating habits, exercise and portion control!

So Kirstie Alley is getting thinner again? Wow. What’s this make it… her 100th *thinner-self time*??.

Give her a few months and she’ll balloon up again. Why do I say that? Hmmmm… look at her track record.

Frankly I truly believe we have more important things in this world with drought, floods, unemployment, hunger, etc…. than to be fixated on Ms. Alley. If she were really serious about keeping a *healthy* weight she wouldn’t have gotten up to be the HUGE person over and over again that we’ve seen in so many pictures during the past 2 decades.

Give us a break from the barrage of expos on her pounds-issues. I’m sick of seeing it plastered on my magazines and on my computer screen, even if I have No interest it’s impossible to run from it.

This photo clearly has major photo shop issues:.) If you look, there is no bottom to Kirstie or the two guys standing beside her:.) Funny

People, repeat after me: “DIETING DOES NOT WORK!” In order to lose fat permanently, you have to change your eating habits (mentally & emotionally) & exercise. No ifs, ands or buts. No short cuts. Dieting is just temporary and mostly water weight at first anyhow. Kirstie Alley is a CLASSIC yo-yo dieter because that’s what the dieting mentality eventually does to you: if you deprive yourself of foods that you love, then you will eventually give in and binge on them hardcore, gaining back all the pounds. It’s a broken cycle.

I know Kirstie can do it!! She’s an inspiration to me since I need to lose 40 lbs. myself. I can’t believe she’s 59…she looks 20 years younger, at least!! Go girl!
