61-year old ”Dancing with the Stars” contestant Kirstie Alley is no stranger to weight loss problems and is certainly a celebrity that knows about the press getting after her when she tips the scale. Lady Gaga recently revealed that she had gained twenty five pounds and the press came after her in a fury with criticism and Kirstie came out and told People that she defends the “Edge of Glory” hit maker; “She was so freaking skinny that  pounds would make her a what, size 2? There’s an insanity here. I know it’s a pressure on her. It’s really hard to play that game.”
Furthermore, Kirstie feels that weight obsession is unhealthy and dangerous; “It’s Hollywood that is obsessed with weight. I think everyone should try to be healthy. Lean is better than not lean, but I think we send a horrible message to the world, especially to girls.”
On a positive note, Lady Gaga has learned to embrace her newly curvaceous figure no matter what her weight is; “This is who I am. And I am proud at any size. When I eat and am healthy and not so worried about my looks, I’m happy. Happier then I’ve ever been. I am not going to go on a psycho-spree because of scrutiny.”
I love these two women, they are fabulous role models that inspire every women to be and look however they want to be. It all comes down to being comfortable in your own skin, for you and you only!
