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

I think she is a beautiful woman, but if at her heaviest she weighed 228 then I weigh 50 lbs. She is tall so she can carry more weight easily than someone shorter. In the candid photos I have seen of her she looks to weigh 300 lbs at a minimum. I think it is great that she is trying to lose weight but you have to do it right or she’s gonna end up in a mumu again in 6 months like she did after Jenny Craig.

What most people don’t know is that her “diet” is funded by her cult of a religion, $cientology. Her magic pills are just a slightly altered version of the massive amounts of vitamins that $cientologist are required to take as part of their purifcation treatments. So yes, go right ahead and spend your money on these magic pills and help fund a cult.

She’s like Oprah.. Up and Down. Give it a year and she’s balloon out again and then have another reality show.

Lisa, If you pay attention to the picture, she is actually laying across the table, so therefore her egs and lower body arent hidden or removed from under the table, and the man to her right is also sitting on top the table and the man to her left is sitting -leaning in with most of his body in his chair. So she doesnt have her lower body airbrushed out of the pic like you imply. She looks great here, but who knows when it was actually really taken. Very pretty lady when she keeps herself up.

I am very happy for Kirstie!!! I have been through the unending cycle of yo-yo dieting and juststarted her weight-loss line and it works!! Wish you well on your goal and I feel I will succeed with reaching mine….

I weighed 163, went on Nutrisystem and now weigh 120. Have been off NS for almost 2yrs, and still weigh 120. Eating healthy, and less of it, will keep anyone where they want to be. A little attention to what goes in pays off.

I wish people would understand there is only two things you need to do to lose weight:
Eat healthy
There is no magic cure – not even bypass surgery as one of the current biggest loser contestant is proof of.

Why are Kirstie’s legs and the two men next to her behind the table legless as well? uhhhh..strange airbrushing?

I always thought she was beautiful either way but good for her losing 50lbs!
