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. Now, what do the rest of us do that can’t afford the $325.00 registration fee and $119.00 monthly fee? The same thing we have always done, struggle with our weight.

Go Kirstie!

That is so great for Kirstie! If you have seen her TV show, she has also been excercising and eating healthy meals. It is not just about the organic supplements. I think Kirstie is an amazing actress & comedian, so i’m happy she is happier in her life & quest for fitness.

Please, she’s just looking for a new way to make a buck. Weight loss doesn’t come from pills and potions, it comes from not stuffing your face with food and getting up off your fat a$$ and working out. I’ll give Kirstie a year and she’ll be fat again.

I have battled with my weight all my life – and finally I am settling into my Diva look. It’s not easy! Thanks Kirstie for being a good role model! And good luck to everyone :)

Did anyone ever think about the fact that the table in the picture, Kristie and the guy may be laying down on it. Why does everyone have to be so critical and not have a positive attitude. I say way to go whether she has done this a million times or not and she is not spending any of your money or wasting your time so get over it. There are lots of women that struggle with the same issue every day and kudos to them if they are inspired by her!

I don’t care what anyone says Kirstie Alley is one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. Her face is GORGEOUS! None of the new starlets could touch her 20y ears ago. She was a 10. I just hope she gets her weight under control so she can began staring in more roles.

I love Kirstie too and am rooting for her, but I wish she’d return to her gorgeous brown hair. It rocked!

I think the yo-yo dieting will eventually kill her if she doesn’t stop. The heart can only take so much.

Good for her? How can people say be nice to someone who balloons up 80 – 100 pounds, starves to lose it, then ballons up again and again and again? That is so unhealthy! And what message is that sending to people? Pills, fad diets, and liquid supplements are not the way to lose weight and keep it off.

The only way to get and stay healthy is to eat less and move your body more. No matter how you package it, it’s still calories in and calories out. This is a lifestyle change that has to happen – and stay that way – or you’ll just go up and down again. That makes your body flabby, weight harder to lose each time, and does a number on your heart and organs.

Kirstie Alley is a prime example of what not to do.
