Kirstie Alley on Oprah Talking About Her Weight Gain

Kirstie Alley on Oprah Talking About Her Weight Gain

Did you see Kirstie Alley on Oprah?  She was on to talk about her weight gain, and her desire to develop her own weight loss program.   The interview wasn’t at all what I expected.  She talked to Oprah about spending this past year researching weight loss (for her soon to be announced weight loss program), while gaining even more weight than she had lost on Jenny Craig.  It was a bit odd.

One of the biggest questions I got from my post on Valerie Bertinelli’s recent weight loss, was about whether or not she will be able to keep it off once she stops the Jenny Craig diet.  It seems that if Kirstie Alley is any example, the answer might be no.

What do you think?

I’ve known for a while now that Kirstie Alley had gained back all of the weight she lost on the Jenny Craig diet, and I have no judgment of her about that.   After all, most of us spend a good portion of our lives gaining, losing, and gaining again.  I’m no exception.  I just don’t understand why she didn’t seem to make any attempt at all to maintain her weight loss?  Even moving all of her high-end exercise equipment to her garage.  Why?   She obviously had the means to hire people to cook healthy meals for her, or trainers to work-out with her.  Why didn’t she?  I think I could understand a little better if she wasn’t also claiming to be developing her own weight loss program.  I just don’t get it.
