Since People Magazine didn't get around to suing me two years ago...
Are you dying to know how much weight Kirstie Alley lost this time? Or don't give a crap? Either way, hang out with us here at Cranky Fitness and see if there's anything you missed this week in health, fitness, or whining!
So the People cover is from a few years ago. But if you care to know Kirstie Alley's latest weight loss total...
This time, it's 100 pounds. Huffpo has some Kirstie Alley 100 lb weight loss photos if you wanna check 'em out.
And what's the only reason I know about this? Well, a vintage Cranky Fitness post about Kirstie Alley's weight loss program all of a sudden got weirdly popular. Not that I check my stat counter program all the time or anything! I just pop in there
