Losing weight is no easy task and being a celebrity doesn’t mean it gets any easier. Kirstie Alley is one celebrity that has had her weight ups and downs, but has now achieved a huge milestone – she’s lost an amazing 100 pounds.

Kirstie has battled her weight publicly for years, but she got off to a serious start when she appeared on Dancing with the Stars last season. Alley dropped a large amount of weight and several inches over the course of the show as America watched. Kirstie didn’t stop there, though. She switched to an organic diet and used her personal weight loss program Organic Liaison to continue losing weight.

When speaking about her weight loss, Kirstie said, “I have more energy than I’ve ever had in my whole life.” Although she is now a size six, weighing in at 130 pounds, Kirstie’s weight topped out at 230 pounds just a couple of years ago. “There was nothing positive about being fat. Now I feel back to normal,” she said.

A Look Inside Kirstie Alley’s Organic Liaison with CEO Peggy Crawford

It’s been more than a year since Kirstie Alley unveiled the pet project she’d been secretly working on in the years since leaving Jenny Craig. She’d eluded several times during interviews that she was working on her own weight loss program, but never gave much detail beyond that. Then, in early 2010, Kirstie announced her new brand, Organic Liaison, was finally born, thanks to a lot of hard work with a team of scientists she partnered with. It was meant to “escort you into the world of organic weight loss,” according to Kirstie in a video on the brand’s site about the first USDA organic-certified supplement program.

We recently spoke with Peggy Crawford, CEO for Organic Liaison, to learn more about the brand, Kirstie’s actual involvement (as well as her weight), and the roles organic ingredients and fitness play in helping its customers lose weight.

What is Kirstie’s involvement in the company? Is she an investor and face, or an active participant in the day-to-day?

Kirstie worked with scientists and doctors to formulate the products for the company. She also has been intimately involved in all other aspects of the creation of Organic Liaison. She is definitely actively involved in it daily and loves to interact with Organic Liaison members as well.

Can you tell us how much weight Kirstie has lost related to Organic Liaison?

The Bachelorette’s Ashley Hebert Stays in Shape with Dance

I have to admit it: I’m a huge fan of The Bachelorette. This season is especially turning out to be full of drama: one guy set out to break Ashley’s heart, another got too drunk to even attend the rose ceremony, and one guy insisted on wearing a creepy mask. When you add all of this to the over-the-top dates and awkward tension between the men who are competing for Ashley’s heart, you know it is going to be a good season.

In addition to the fun drama described above, Bachelorette fans will get another treat from this season’s show: they get to see all of Ashley’s cute clothes. Ashley has already promised to wear tons of short dresses and miniskirts this season, and therefore, will be showing off her amazing legs.

So how did she get those fantastic quads, calves, and everything else?

“I teach jazz, ballet, and hip-hop at my college,” Ashley revealed. “I feel confident when I’m dancing.”
