Picking up where Sara Rue left off, Carrie Fisher is taking over as the latest celebrity spokesperson for Jenny Craig. Even though she was fighting off the likes of Boba Fett, in her Jenny Craig blog Carrie writes that she wishes she still "had the body I had when I was attached to that giant slug and wearing that metal bikini." During the Star Wars era, the 5'1" actress weighed 105 lbs. After reaching her heaviest mark — 180 lbs. — she turned toward Jenny Craig for help.
For Carrie, the weight came on slowly and steadily. She found emotional comfort in food and grazed mindlessly. Since joining Jenny Craig in November, the actress has lost 12 pounds by eating plan-approved meals and exercising five days a week. On the move to Jenny Craig, Carrie tweeted: "I'm starting on my latest adventure Wishful Shrinking w/ the help of Jenny Craig. Wish me low calorie luck . . . I feel like a total gonk promoting anything, it's not my style. But it actually works so there."
