Kirstie Alley, best-known to Trek fans for her role as Saavik on Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, is returning to Jenny Craig in a new weight loss campaign.
Her Organic Liaison line will now be included with the Jenny Craig program.
The actress has struggled with her weight for years, topping out at two-hundred-and-twenty-eight pounds. Alley lost over seventy-five pounds during her first Jenny Craig campaign getting down to one-hundred-and-forty-five pounds, but after leaving the weight-loss program, the weight returned and soon she was well over two hundred pounds again.
In 2011, she launched her own Organic Liaison weight loss program and between that and her Dancing with the Stars exercise, she claimed a loss of one hundred pounds.
But the weight returned again, and Alley has recently gained thirty pounds in six months. “I was good for awhile and then I wasn’t good, and the weight crept up,” she said. “Like I say in the ad, I’m not circus fat. I didn’t hugely screw up. I didn’t gain seventy-five. I gained thirty.”
“I’m thrilled to return home to Jenny Craig,” she said. “I’m coming back because the program works. You don’t have to starve with Jenny‘s yummy food, like fettuccine, plus I love my personal consultant. I hope to be an inspiration to others who are looking to re-energize their weight loss goals. And I am excited to bring my favorite Organic Liaison products to Jenny Craig and Jenny‘s members.”
“We are excited to welcome Kirstie back to the Jenny Craig family, and we are thrilled by the acquisition of Organic Liaison,” said Monty Sharma, president and chief executive officer of Jenny Craig. “When Kirstie reached out to us, we welcomed her with open arms. Kirstie has always found Jenny Craig‘s unique combination of personal consulting and delicious food to be a program that really works for her. We hope Kirstie’s return as our ambassador will provide continued encouragement to our members who have also struggled with their own weight and are looking for a program that works. We take personal ownership of each member’s success. We also recognize that in real life people may slip up with their health and weight loss goals. When our members or former members face challenges, we are here for them to help them back on track for success.”
