date after weight lossAnyone who’s followed Kirstie Alley over the past few decades has seen her gain and lose weight many times. We’re talking hundreds of pounds. Over and over again.  And each time she goes up or down on the scale, it’s all over the news. I just read an article about her most recent weight loss in and feel compelled to weigh in (pun intended). Why? Because it’s about how she’s ready to date after weight loss. I’m not here to judge Ms. Alley for gaining and losing 50 pounds. That’s her private struggle, and she already has enough paparazzi who measure every step she takes and every morsel she eats. She certainly doesn’t need a dating coach to pass judgment on her. That’s not the focus of this article. What compelled me to write is that she decided to date again after losing 50 pounds. That’s a topic I know many readers can relate to. 

Have you ever thought you were too overweight to date or be attractive to a man?

If you have, you’re definitely not alone.

Most of us have some degree of self-loathing when it comes to our bodies. And here’s what I have to say to you. Whether you think you’re 5, 10, 20, or 100 pounds overweight, you are still your wonderful self at your core. You are always love-able. No matter what you look like. 

Your dating problems won’t be solved by losing weight or getting rid of cellulite

If you don’t love yourself – even your warts, flaws, and a few extra pounds – how can you expect anyone to love you? Sure, if you want to lose weight, do it. But do it for the RIGHT reasons – because you love yourself and want to be healthy. Don’t do it to “hook” a man. And quit believing that the size of your thighs is in any way connected to your ability to attract a good man.

Here’s Kirstie dishing about losing weight and jumping back into the dating scene:

Can you think of a time when you stopped dating in order to get to your target weight? Please share your thoughts below.
