Alley lost 75 pounds while working as Jenny Craig spokeswoman from 2004 to 2007. People reported
that she lost a total of 100 pounds by 2011 when she started the see her weight go up again. She told the magazine that the Jenny Craig's structure will help her.
"I love that you have a consultant," said Alley. "It's like being an athlete. No athlete is going to do well without having a coach. We have to equate that to life. Without a coach helping us along the way, I don't think someone can make it for the long haul."
Alley said she will be following Jenny Craig meals along with supplements from her own Organic Liaison line. People.com said Alley's line will be sold at Jenny Craig centers as well.
"I need to get myself to where I feel cocky again," Alley told People.com.
Alley said she lost some of her discipline when she left Jenny Craig, but added that she felt like she could return to her original weight-loss size.
"I was good for a while and then I wasn't good, and the weight crept up," said Alley. "Like I say in the ad, I'm not circus fat. I didn't hugely screw up. I didn’t gain 75. I gained 30."
Alley won a Golden Globe and Primetime Emmy for her work on "Cheers" in 1991 and she won a second Emmy for her performance in the 1994 miniseries "David's Mother."
