Did you all see the latest tweets from Kirstie Alley? Turns out, the 59-year old actress who has publicly battled her weight for years says she's lost 50 pounds. Wow!

Good for you, Kirstie. And what's this about finding the love of her life?


Along with this gorgeous photo of herself with her "Italian men friends," Kirstie tweeted:

"I've lost over 50 lbs ... and I'm having the time of my of my life ... 30 more to gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo."

I'm very proud of Kirstie. Getting in shape is hard. Take it from me who's on day 6 of jogging. It's hard work. And I commend her for staying out in the open with her struggle. After all, no one wants to be a yo-yo dieter. Every fat person on a diet wants to succeed. Sometimes it just takes some time and some failures. And sometimes trying turns into 50 pounds lighter, and that's awesome.

Kirstie recently traveled to Italy where this photo shoot was taken. Upon her return, she tweeted that she found love while she was away:

"Back from Italy...found the love of my life ... turned out it was me ..."

Lovely message, right there. Loving yourself is especially important when you take on weight loss. A lot of the work getting in shape starts with believing you're worth it and that you truly deserve to be healthy and fit.

Kirstie joins the ranks of several other celebrity weight loss stories as of late: Drew Carey, John Goodman, Kelly Osbourne, and Jennifer Hudson. Last month, Kirstie said she was "way too chicken" to participate on Dancing With the Stars but that she might consider next season if invited again.

Do you find it brave or foolish when celebrities are open about weight loss struggles?
