When Carrie Fisher announced last January the deal with Jenny Craig and weight loss goals, she explained:


“I’m pretty fearless, but my scale is frightening. So I would go to the doctor and I would stand not facing it. That’s an adult! I have a child. So that’s something I’d like to not do anymore, be frightened of the scale.”


During her Today Show appearance, she told Ann Curry:

“I couldn’t leave the house to go bra shopping. I exhausted the alphabet on bra sizes.” [googlead tip=”lista_medie” aliniat=”stanga”]


[googlead tip=”patrat_mediu” aliniat=”stanga”] Carrie Fisher had joked about trying on her iconic gold metal bikini she wore as Princess Lea in Return of the Jedi in 1977.

“I want to get back in it and walk around the house like an idiot.”

“You know, answer the doorbell, [and say], <<What, this old thing? I’m just wearing my home style metal bikini>>.”

“I’ll come out with a line of metal bikinis for women over 40.”

But she said women above the age of 50 should not ever go sleeveless.

“I’m still probably not gonna wear a lot of sleeveless things. I lost 50 pounds. The Jenny Craig food is good….It tastes like you’re cheating!”

While Carrie didn’t say anything about her rejuvenated features, she was certainly forthcoming about her decision to lose weight.

Carrie Fisher, who is now a size 8, told the Today Show:


“I couldn’t look in the mirror. I saw pictures of myself where I didn’t look like myself.

I thought I was getting old. It turns out [I] was mostly getting fat.”


Now, Carrie Fisher, 54, is feeling more confident than ever, and is even ready to find love again.

“I’m putting myself on the market,” she told America’s People during an interview in the latest magazine’s issue.


“I’m ready to date again; this is my announcement.”


Carrie Fisher relations include Blues Brothers co-star Dan Aykroyd, singer-songwriter Paul Simon and casting agent Bryan Lourd, with whom she has a 19-year-old daughter, Billie.

At one moment in time, Carrie topped the scales at 180 lbs, she has said in the past.

To achieve her actual body, she reduced her intake to 1,500 calories per day.

Her favourite snacks include Skinny Cow Cookies ‘n Cream ice cream and Kozy Shack rice pudding.

Carrie Fisher also embarked on a fitness regime, doing 40-45 minutes of cardio 5 times a week.

“I’m not in love with the treadmill,” Carrie Fisher said.

“We’re in a truce situation. But I really like elliptical because I can read.”
