Back in April Kirstie Alley decided to return to Jenny Craig's weight loss company for a second time in order to lose 30 pounds. Nine months on and the Golden Globe winner has revealed she surpassed her goal by losing a staggering 50 pounds.

Alley showed off her new figure while appearing on NBC's 'Today' on Monday (Jan 5th), and revealed that she managed to lose so much weight through rigorous planning, maintaining a healthy diet and was even surprised her progress didn't diminish over the Christmas holidays.
"My consultant and I sat down and we planned it out...It wasn't a spree. It wasn't my usual holiday, which lasts from Halloween to Valentine's Day!" she said. "This time I thought, 'What is the goal?' and 'What is the time span of the goal?' I really looked at it as, 'This is my life until I am dead. I am going to keep this, this way,' instead of like, 'I lost 50 lbs., now I can do whatever I want.'" She added, "I don't have that anymore."
"My goal is to keep this and maintain this throughout my life-especially as an actress. People are in different lines of work, but actresses need to keep themselves [fit]," she continued. "I'm actually more responsible than I was before. I really want to do more acting and I want to do more movies."
As for her career, Alley said, "I thought, 'How do I like to see myself on film?' I think it's really important for everyone to decide how they want to see themselves, and I like to see myself looking more svelte."
The former 'Cheers' star, who went from a size 14 to 16 to a size 60 to 8, also told People magazine, "There's this certain place I hit where I felt really energetic and agile. I was like, I want to keep going with this!"
After struggling to keep to a diet in the past, the 63-year-old actress wanted to try something different. "I thought, 'How am I going to solve the problem of hitting a goal and having enough fun to keep that going?' I got a yellow townie bike and I ride over to friends' houses. I bribe people. I'll say, 'Let's ride to this restaurant and I'll pay for dinner,'" she said. "And believe me: If I bike four miles to a restaurant, I don't wreck it with my order!"
Alley also plans to keep living a healthy lifestyle, as long as it doesn't become tedious. "I want it to be part of my life this time. I'm just trying to make it fun," she said.
