Guest blogger Talitha Peters:Both Drew Carey and Kirstie Alley have struggled with their weight. But look: They're both super-thin now!

Drew Carey and Kristie Alley
Drew Carey once weighed 262 pounds. Now the comedian and TV host has lost a whopping 80 pounds -- and hopes to lose 12 more by October 31. He told Parade Magazine that it was fiancee Nicole Jaracz's 5-year-old son, Connor, who gave him the incentive to get serious about getting healthy. "I couldn't keep up with him," Carey admitted.

The comedian said he would be left breathless and sweating after just a few minutes of playing with the boy. "I'd be like, 'Connor, I can't,' and he'd say, 'C'mon, Dad!'" said Carey. "That was a terrible feeling. I thought, 'I'm never going to see him graduate high school.'" The fact that Carey's own dad died of a heart attack when he was just in his 40s was another motivation.

Carey did have a relapse in June, when he started downing ice cream and pizza and gained back some of the weight he'd lost. About that, he said, "Eating crappy food is not a reward. It's a punishment." Since losing all that weight, Carey has been taken off of his type 2 diabetes medication. Just look at his amazing transformation!

Kirstie Alley tipped the scales at 230 pounds earlier this year. Thanks in part to her television show, "The Big Life," she's lost over 50 pounds. She tweeted recently, "I'm having the time of life...30 more to goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo."

You go, girl!

This post appears to recieve a good ammount of visitors. How do you advertise it? It offers a nice individual spin on things. I guess having something useful or substantial to post about is the most important factor.

Hi there, - uncovered this internet site by pure luck whilst wandering round the internet this afternoon, and glad that I did! I do like the style and design and colours, but I really should mention that I’m having difficulties when it loads. I’m using Lynx 2.8 internet browser for mac, and the side panel won’t line up the right way. i’m confident I’ve used the same design on a customer’s website, but the menu seems alright on mine. I suspect the mistake is with my outdated browser & I’m guessing it’s time to update!

Hi, - uncovered your web page by accident whilst roaming round the internet this evening, and happy that I did! I do like the design and colorings, but I have to say that I’m having difficulties when it loads. I’m using Safari 4 browser for mac, and the menu does not line up correctly. i am sure I have employed an identical design on a customer’s internet site, but the menu seems alright on mine. I suspect the mistake is at my end and I’m guessing it’s the perfect time to upgrade!
