Default Kerstie Alley

Has anyone seen this show, or clips of it, of Kerstie on Oprah talking about gaining all the weight back and then some??? As I watched, I thought BOTH of these women were so rah-rah-rah gung-ho about having lost the weight and "figured it out" and boom, there they are back at square one, and with all the financial resources to have personal chefs, trainers, the best equipment, everything!

it's just one more BONG on my head to NOT get complacent, NOT think i've got it figured out, and to be SUPER vigilant!

I think lots of times people think weight loss is a trip to a destination rather than a lifetime of travel. You never "arrive" anywhere, you only continue on with the good habits and healthy way of life.

Celebrities probably lose weight for all the wrong reasons too (for their career, fans, etc.) rather than for themselves.

It just goes to show you......gaining weight back happens to the best of us, financially capable, personal trainers, chefs, equipment or not....

That's why I'm keeping it so quiet at the moment. There are people in my life who have seen it all, heard it all before, many times.

I kinda take that as being encouraging, not discouraging. After all, if it's money that it takes, most of us are in trouble. But it's just proof that what it takes is internal, something we all have.

I didn't see it... but I believe it. I find it sad and I'm sad for them! Because it takes more than a diet, than a herbal supplement, than a stupid freakin berry... you know? I wish both of them nothing but the best in their journey's and I hope that one day they'll have sustained and continue success beating down their personal fat demon.

What I gained for it is that you can't just rush and find a diet plan and say "WOO THIS IS THE PLAN!" but instead find what works for YOU- and I mean really works. I tried it all, low carb, no carb, no meat, and so on, but found that the only thing that works for ME is to count calories.

I'm interested in this "plan" that she has made for herself- wonder what it is. Though I'm sure the gist is eat right and work out lol.

Anyone else found it funny she replaced her gym with a dining room? lol.

God love Kirstie Alley! She is human! Just like the VAST majority of us! But, poor thing, she's done her backslide completely publically...
I wish her nothing but the best, and it is SO nice to see someone who is just completely human and normal. She needs a break, just like most of us do...
for Kirstie

Trazey, I agree. We can never competely let our guard down. It has taken me a while to come to grips with this and to decide if I'm willing to commit to this lifestye for the rest of my life. Because, this is the rest of my life. I will never be able to eat the way I used to or sit on my rumpus the way I used to.

i can't help but think both of these women have messed up their bodies terribly with the up and down.

and i wish they could find a happy healthy realistic weight for themselves and buy some darned self-acceptance.

I don't think either of them have unrealistic goals. I just think that they struggle like we all struggle.

The regain is one reason that I always stick close to my scale. I'm able to see where I'm at and buckle down a bit when I need to.

One thing Kirstie said that I found interesting was that she decided one day she needed to turn her gym room into a dining room. No, I'm not kidding! She said that she thought she wasn't having enough dinner parties anymore...

Isn't this weight stuff just the trickiest business? Couldn't just about any of us have said, "Um, Kirstie, maybe not"?
