I took a few minutes tonight to check out Kirstie Alley Dancing with the Stars and I have to say that I’m impressed.
Love her or hate her, there are a few things that you have to respect when it comes to Kristie and what she has accomplished on this year’s show.
First of all, we all know that she has had major struggles with her weight. She openly admits that she has had problems with weight for a long time. If you check out some of her pictures, you can see that she has gone up and down over the years.
So, the point is that she was not slim and trim when she started the show. She was certainly not as athletic as many of the other competitors but she hung in there and gave it her all.
Now, we are approaching the final few couples and Kirstie is still in the mix. Tonight, she kind of blew me away as she performed some moves that the average “big girl” could not really do. Even the judges were impressed with the lifts and spins that she pulled off.
One last thing about Kirstie is the fact that this lady is 60 years old. However, she has not let her age or her weight stop her from accomplishing great things on Dancing with the Stars. Whether she wins it or not, she has probably gained a host of new fans and a new found respect from anyone struggling to be fit.
Thanks Kirstie for being wild and free, and most of all for setting a great example of how you can do anything you want to do in life if you make the decision to just go for it.
