Kirstie Alley, actress and former Jenny Craig spokesperson, is set to launch her new reality series on the A&E network on March 21, 2010 at 10/9 p.m.
The show, entitled “Kirstie Alley’s Big Life,” will chronicle her attempt to lose 75 pounds after a very public weight loss journey in which she lost 75 pounds in 2008 and then regained it all plus ten pounds.
One of the most popular diet programs available for women, Jenny Craig has a fierce and loyal following. With more than 640 centers around the world and amazingly delicious pre-packaged meals, it’s not hard to see why so many women love the Jenny Craig system.
With its focus on food, body and mind, Jenny Craig is a well-rounded weight loss program that offers the training and support you need to achieve your weight loss goals. Its varied programs and pre-packaged meals and snacks offers the convenience of healthy eating in combination with a personalized plan that fits your lifestyle.
But, without a doubt, one of the most effective elements to the Jenny Craig system would have to be the selection of their spokeswomen. Typically a woman who is in need of weight loss, she puts a human face on the program and inspires the members of the program to work hard and get the results that they want. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular and recent choices for Jenny Craig spokeswomen. (more…)
No stranger to dieting, Kirstie Alley, the former Jenny Craig spokesperson who lost 75 pounds on the meal-delivery program and then gained back 80 pounds, is set to star in her own reality series early in 2010.
According to People magazine, A&E will air the ten-episode series which will chronicle Kirstie’s journey to lose much of the weight she gained while also trying to be a single mother to two teenaged children in Los Angeles. The weight loss reality series has yet to be named but viewers can look forward to Kirstie’s humor and spunk as she struggles just like so many other Americans to lose weight.
In the past, Kirstie has been unabashedly honest about her weight struggles including her love of food, particularly starchy carbs, her state-of-the-art fitness equipment which collects dust in her garage and envy over Michelle Obama’s arms. Not allowing the scrutinizing eye of the media to thwart her intentions of losing weight, Kirstie vowed on Oprah last spring to “get into a bikini again” and she is poising herself to do just that.
Tune in this Tuesday, November 3 to Oprah to watch Kirstie Alley unveil a surprise.
Last spring, Kirstie came on the show to discuss her highly publicized weight regain and then announced her plans for developing her own weight loss plan which she promised to make public as she began her weight loss journey.
Former Jenny Craig spokesperson Kirstie Alley shared with Oprah how she managed to gain back all of the weight she lost in 2006. Confessing to gaining 85 pounds, 10 more pounds than her pre-Jenny Craig weight, Kirstie candidly discussed how over the past year and a half, she stopped exercising and swapped her 1,400-calorie-a-day Jenny Craig meal plan for her favorite eats like chocolate and Chinese food.

The trouble started when Jenny Craig stopped monitoring Kirstie’s weight through their astutely-monitored weekly weigh-ins. Prior to this, Kirstie would rely on these weigh-ins to keep her accountable to her weight loss. Next, as Kirstie started to give herself some slack and loosen the reigns on her stringent eating and exercise routine, the portions got larger and the food became heavier. Soon after, she decided to turn her exercise room into a dining room and moved thousands of dollars of exercise equipment into her garage where they sat and collected dust. (more…)
Tune in this Thursday, April 30 to Oprah as Kirstie Alley shares how and why she fell off the Jenny Craig wagon. In 2006, the actress lost 75 pounds after following a strict Jenny Craig, 1,400-calorie-a-day diet, but just last year, she was fired from the weight loss giant for reportedly gaining most, if not more of that weight back.

Now we have another reason to collectively adore Valerie Bertinelli. As revealed on “Oprah,” February 25th, 2008, Valerie has put out a book, detailing her life as well as her weight loss struggles. “Losing It: And How I Got My Life Back One Pound at a Time” is available for purchase, and is already getting rave reviews on Amazon.
Immensely likable, it was curious how she found love with a hard-edged rocker like Eddie Van Halen. Like her marriage, much about her personal life has remained a mystery, until now. Having lost more than 30 pounds with Jenny, and in a timeline that is realistic (you can read all about it on her blog), she does good friend, Kirstie Alley, proud with strong testimonial and certifiable results.
