Kirstie Alley Has Lost 38 Inches Since Starting 'Dancing With The Stars!'

Kirstie Alley looks totally different now than when she began ‘Dancing with the Stars’ a couple months ago. She says her body has changed so much, she’s lost 38 inches all around!

Formerly a pin-thin Hollywood star, Kirstie Alley has struggled with obesity for years. Despite being the Jenny Craig spokesperson and even having a reality show dedicated to her weight loss, the only thing that’s seemingly worked for the 60-year-old comedian has been Dancing with the Stars. In fact, she’s dropped 38 inches since beginning the competition two and a half months ago!

“It was like, keep whittling, whittling, whittling,” Kirstie told the Associated Press about her recent victory. “And the other thing that’s really more significant to me — I mean, I love the whittling, I like being skinny — I’m really strong and really agile and it gave me a new life.”

Last month, Kirstie — who’s 5’7″ and weighed 228 pounds at her heaviest — revealed her weight loss number to US Weekly…but has stayed mum since.

“I’ve lost 60 pounds, and I have 30 or 40 more to go. And I think with this strenuous, rigorous dance schedule, I think it’s going to work,” Kirstie said.

In May, Kirstie’s intense dance schedule and strict diet began to get the best of her. During one rehearsal, she fell down from lack of energy.

Although she vehemently denied she was starving herself on purpose, her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, told her 1,400 calories a day wasn’t enough food combined with her hours of dance practice.

“I wasn’t intentionally not eating. I forgot!” she explained.

Nevertheless, since that particular show May 9, Kirstie has said she’s made a concerted effort to eat more and stress less about dropping weight.

We can’t wait to read about her dramatic weight loss when she’s on the cover of a weekly after Dancing with the Stars ends May 24. How much do YOU think she’ll have lost by then?

There is no way that at 5’8″ 230 lbs, a woman wears a size 12! NO WAY! Maybe a size 20, 22 is more realistic. I am happy she lost weight! But realistically, she looks more like a size 12, 14 now after her weight loss.

She looks like she lost weight…..NO WAY 38 inches. No way. What’s sad is, you know she won’t be able to keep it off. She always gains back what she loses + 20 pounds more. I hope she can keep it off this time.

Having overweight problems is not fun. Kirsty made it to the very end. She should be applauded for the sheer effort it took just to learn and dance any one of the programs she was presented. Her partner was a fantastic teacher. Congrats to both of them.

She does not look “totally different.” She looks like the same woman minus some weight. It’s absurd to act like every pound completely changes who you are and how you look. It’s just inches. It’s not a new body.
