Cheering for Carrie Fisher!
We all remember Carrie Fisher as the beautiful Princess Leia in the original Stars Wars Trilogy. The eye popping, show stopping, gold bikini she wore made men and women sit up and take notice. But fast forward 34 years and today the 54 year old, 180 lb, 5′ 1″, actress and author is the newest spokesperson for Jenny Craig.
Last evening, I heard Fisher say that she had come across a post online that read, “What ever happened to Carrie Fisher? She used to be so hot, now she looks like Elton John.” She was hurt by the comment and understandably so. I personally hope the author of that post is fortunate enough to live long enough to learn we all change with time. If we’re fortunate, we will get to experience the things that will inevitably shift, sag, soften, and spread. We do what we can about the things that we can and we smile at the rest. And that’s exactly what Fisher has decided to do.
Fisher said, “I hate the word diet because it has ‘die’ in it.” But she has partnered with Jenny Craig to get her eating and her health under control. She has already lost 12 lbs since starting the program in September and is well on her way of reaching her goal, “to have the option of getting back into the metal bikini”.
Good luck Carrie! You’ve got your own personal pep squad, right here, and we’re cheering for your success.
