Kirstie Alley Creating Her Own Weight Loss Plan

By Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am — Filed under:

Kirstie Alley Feb 2008The photo on the cover of The National Enquirer was enough to cause confusion. After losing an incredible 75 pounds with Jenny Craig, the tabloid suggested that Kirstie Alley had gained it all back and lost her job because of it.

What if there was a different motive? According to People Magazine, Kirstie Alley is planning on launching her own weight loss plan.

“I had not intended to make this announcement at this time, but after an online People magazine article ran last Friday, announcing that I had stepped down as Jenny’s spokesperson, I found myself bombarded with inquiries from the media and fans. So I guess it’s as good of a time as any to announce that I intend to develop and pilot my own weight-loss brand that I hope to launch in 2009.”

You can read Kirstie Alley’s full statement here:

Paranoid as I am, my first instinct was that The National Enquirer had just found an old photo of Kirstie before her experience with Jenny Craig and were using it to sell their magazine. When paranoia really set in, however, I imagined that she really HAD gained back all the weight… purposely. After losing it “on her own” the second time, SHE would be able to cash in on the experience this time instead of Jenny Craig.

What do you think? Has my marketing paranoia run overboard? Is she just purposely gaining weight to “shock” you with another before and after picture? Worse still, did she gain the weight to discredit Jenny Craig?

Staying at a healthy weight is difficult enough without complicating it with negotiations, spokespeople and contracts. The tabloids are just trying to sell you papers, not make you healthy. Remember that in 2009 when they print Kirstie Alley’s “amazing” weight loss the second time around.

    She used jenny’s plan before. So I am not so sure she did it on purpose.

    I doubt anyone can keep weight off with JC. You can’t always eat pre-packaged foods for heaven’s sake. I tend to think she gained it back just from that rather than on purpose in any way.

    I’m more paranoid that her new plan will involve Scientology scariness in some way…

    really who wants to eat frozen pre packaged meals all their life?! I have lost 27 pounds on Weight Watchers so far because I eat whatever I want within reason and it’s not frozen meals, that’s why WW is so easy to do and stick to, Its not a diet–just a retraining on how you are supposed to eat.

    I feel sorry for Kirstie Alley. She has shown she can do it at least once. There must be something else going on for her to have a eating binge relapse. Just as well she parted with Jenny Craig. It obviously didn’t work for her and probably not for a lot of others like Kristie Alley.

    I do not believe she has put the weight back on intentionatly! I lost from 406lbs to 250lbs and it took me 18months, and there is no way I would put the weighrt back on for money or fame! I have gained 40lbs back and it is just to hard to lose it a second time. I no the shame and the guilt that goes with weight problems. I wish Kristie all the luck in the world with her weight problems! Thanks Mike

    I completely agree w/ Mike’s reponse. I think it is disgusting that these people have nothing better to do than make a mockery of other people’s struggles & misfortune. Clearly, these sadistic predators have never battled weight issues themselves for them to come up w/ such a ludicrous notion! No one, having finally won this battle, would EVER be so stupid as to deliberately regain weight for ANY reason! I know because I have won & held my victory after decades of struggle. Instead of massive derision, Kirstie deserves credit for her courage, determination, & willingness even to go public in the 1st place. Besides, I’m sure a person of her standing is perfectly capable of finding some other celebrity to be her spokesperson instead of sabotaging herself & health for $money$!! Go for it, girl! It’s not how many times you falter & fall, but whether or not you pick yourself up & keep blazing onward! And you are!
