Kirstie Alley - Give me a break!

Okay- I usually don't comment about Hollywood crap but this is really bugging me. I'm tired of hearing about it in the news. This woman weighs a lot more than 228#'s! Even taking into account that a person with a lot of fat can be a larger size than a comparably weighted lean person, she is far heavier than she admits.

These pictures from May show the fat deposits in the neck that give it away...

At 5'7", she could weigh 228 and not be this big. She is easily a size 22 or better. It's sad that she keeps doing the weight yo-yo. If she'd stop dieting and eat a normal, healthy diet, her weight would stabilize. It may not be at a size 6, but it would stabilize.

I'm 5'9" and weigh in the range of 200-225, wearing a size 16-18 and I sure as hell don't look like that! You can still see my wrists, neck, collarbones, etc. I eat mostly whole grains, veges & fruits (I could eat more...) and lean meats. But I'm not a purist- I drink 1% milk so I can have my ice cream. I like certain sweets. My BP is around 110/70, cholesterol levels right where they are supposed to be. I live with the reality that my body wants to be warm in the winter... ;)

My middle daughter is 5'10" and is a very lean 165- and wears a size 9. I'd love to be pre-child weight again (same as my daughter is currently) but I just don't have the kind of time, dedication or desire that it would take. And funny thing- 25 years ago, a woman weighing 165# was a size 14/16. Do you think they play free with the sizes a little??? I didn't know anyone over 7 years of age that wore a size 3.

And you'll never catch me drinking diet sodas.
