Written by Michael Lambarde on May. 28, 2011

Coming off of Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy placing second on this season of ABC’s hit reality series Dancing with the Stars, Alley is claiming that before she started Dancing, she was a size 12, but she quickly went down to a size 8. Now she is claiming that she could fit in a “stretchy size six”.

Alley, who wore the same dress on the season finale as she wore on the very first episode of the season said that the dress needed to be sized down significantly because of all the weight she lost during the dance competition. “My dress is half the size it was when we started,” Alley said on the night of the finale. Alley hasn’t revealed how much actual weight she has lost, though.

Alley is clearly stoked about all the weight she has lost as it’s no secret that Alley has struggled with weight problems for a long time. “[The show has] made me alive again,” she told Us Weekly. “It’s given me a new view of what I want to do in my life.” After the weight loss, she says she can’t wait to go into her closet and “wear all the dresses from when [she] was really, really skinny,” she told USA Today.
