Alley Loses Weight, and Maybe 'Fat Actress'

(Posted September 21, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

LOS ANGELES ( After shedding about 50 pounds, Kirstie Alley has been seen on Jenny Craig weight loss commercials bouncing on a trampoline and scrambling after a kindergartner.

"When I got fat, I was being stupid. It was a little bit like when I used to do drugs," says Alley in the Sept. 26 issue of People. "Before I stopped doing drugs, I had to spiritually get a grip and go, 'What do you want your life to be like?'"

The 54-year-old actress teetered on the verge of 200 pounds before focusing on her diet program and exercising. She is currently just 30 pounds short of her goal weight. She jokes that although this slimmer shape is better for her health, it might not help her career, since her Showtime series "Fat Actress" has yet to be renewed for a second season.

"I think [they] have great concerns about me not being fat," she says.

Alley admits that she didn't face her weight problem until she viewed the first few episodes of "Fat Actress," which wasn't helped by the camera adding 10 pounds.

"I didn't realize I was that fat," she says. "Seriously."
