Kirstie Alley says getting fat was "the greatest thing in the world"
The 59-year-old actress - whose weight has fluctuated over the years - recently piled on the pounds again and while she didn`t like the results, she had lots of fun doing it.
She said: "It was the greatestthing in the world getting fat. Every meal out was an event. We`d go to Italy and have pasta, truffles and dessert and then plan the next incredible meal. It was a happy-go-lucky time. I never had so much fun."
However, when Kirstie - who proudly displayed her 75lbs weight-loss in 2006 by wearing a bikini on `The Oprah Winfrey Show` - tipped the scales at 230lbs, she felt "disgusted".
She told Ladies` Home Journal magazine: "It was insane. I`m disgusted with myself! I let myself down and, worse than that, I let other people down. People were looking up to me for losing all that weight and then I went and got all chub on them."
Despite her ever-expanding figure, the `Look Who`s Talking` star admits she was in denial about how bad she looked.
She said: "When we get fat, we fool ourselves with every kind of lie imaginable. By 2008, my weight started creeping up and I said, `Oh, I still look good at 150. I still look good at 155. I still look okay at 165. Some of my clothes still fit at 175. And nobody was saying `You`re fat.` I was like a bank robber who was getting away with it."
