Kirstie Alley’s Weight For Fame

Kirstie AlleyKirstie has been down this road before. First it was with her TV series, “Fat Actress” where she documents her battle of obesity. Then it was Jenny Craig’s massive paycheck which helped to keep the weight off by using their diet.

Finally Kirstie went through weeks and weeks of rehearsals for dancing on the hit show, “Dancing With The Stars”.

And just weeks after the very fast weight loss, Kirstie has her own diet that she is promoting to the public.

The problem lies in the fact that Kirstie has always used the wrong motivation to lose her weight. If it’s not for the money, then it’s for the fame.

If Kirstie made healthy choices that she could abide by, then it wouldn’t be such a problem. But the motivation remains financial and for fame.

Without it, she would most likely return to emotional eating and land herself back to square one.

I do wish Kirstie success, but I question if she is the right person to create a diet program. It seems too soon and without testimonials it can cause a very likely dangerous proposition.

She claims that she worked with scientists to come up with this new diet plan. To be honest, I think the scientific community has been at this a lot longer with very little success. Perhaps instead of talking with the researchers, she should try talking to others that suffer from the same disease.

You might get some real answers. You might get real results.

The Rise and Fall of Kirstie Alley (Again)

First,  it was Jenny Craig that was supposed to be the saving grace.

That diet did not work out for her.

Was it really a surprise given the statistics?

 

It really wasn’t her fault as she had many resources that any human could possibly want and a great financial reward.

After she gained it back Kirstie sought to fight her public weight loss again on her own reality show and started show some progress.

After the show? She sort of disappeared from the TV airwaves.

It wasn’t until recently when she showed up in the public. She did not appear to be the happiest person- as I know that feeling when you try and hide in shame. The one thing that I have learned in the last two or three years making this film is that Kirstie should not be embarrassed or ashamed as she did not fail at dieting. The dieting failed her.

It just tears me apart emotionally that we all blame ourselves and try and hide away as if we are social outcasts.

There are deeper problems that I can’t wait to share with you in our film but I promise you all that it is not any of your faults so please learn to try to give yourself some slack.

It is going to take some time and there is no quick fix. It is possible though. So Kirstie, please come back in the public eye and be proud. I would much rather see you work on yourself for awhile then just drop fifty pounds in a month for Jenny.
