Kirstie Alley has dropped 50 pounds, and is showing off her latest weight loss success.

The 63-year old actress, who has always struggled with her weight, vowed last April to lose 30 pounds. In April, Alley told the TODAY show “I have an easy time gaining weight and I actually have an easy time losing weight. So if I just keep relatively active and follow some rules … my problem is I don’t have guidelines for myself.”

In the new interview at TODAY, Alley told Matt Lauer Jenny Craig was the secret behind her weight loss this time around. The Look Who’s Talking star is a spokeswoman for the company.

“This time it’s different,” Alley told Lauer on TODAY. “My goal is to keep this and maintain this throughout my life. … I feel like I’ve conquered that now. I’m sort of hardheaded. You know, when I used to do drugs, it took me a while to quit, quit, quit — and then it was done. And I feel like that’s occurred for me [with my weight now].”

Kirstie Alley has always fought weight loss and weight gain throughout her life and career. Back in 2006, she appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show and showed off a 75-pound weight loss. However, back in 2009 Alley’s weight had gotten back up to 230 pounds. Then, in 2011, Alley was a contestant on ABC’s Dancing with The Stars and the strenuous workout routine associated with the competition helped her lose an astonishing 100 pounds.

The Cheers actress has appeared in Hot In Cleveland, and had her own reality show back in 2010. This year, she can be seen in David O. Russell’s Nailed, appearing alongside Jake Gyllenhaal, Jessica Biel, James Marsden, and Paul Reubens.

Kirstie Alley vows to stick with the weight loss in 2015, but she also told Matt Lauer she is “on the market,” and searching for a mate.
