Jason Alexander Ready to Lose the Pregnancy Weight

Seinfeld star Jason Alexander is ready to face his 2010 resolution head-on with the help of Jenny Craig. The actor has signed on to be the program's newest spokesperson.

“It’s like someone’s clubbing me over the head it’s so obvious I should be doing this,” says the actor.

Alexander was prompted to find a solution to his weight issue after watching some of his recent appearances in film and television.

“I just got to a point where when I would look at the Seinfeld reunion stuff or one of these other projects that I had done, I said, ‘I don’t like the way that guy looks. That guy is not attractive in any way, shape or form to me,’” he says. “It made me go, ‘Oh, yuck!’”

His goal is to drop between 30 and 40 pounds to get back to his weight during the early years of the show.

“Over the course of the nine years of Seinfeld, I can actually see my hairline go away and my waistline increase. One of them I can do nothing about; the other I can,” he adds.

The comedian admits that his initial weight gain came as a result of sympathy-weight during his wife’s two pregnancies. He even hopes to inspire more men to face their weight loss challenges with the help of a healthy living program.

“It’s hard for me to think of the Jenny Craig program — or any weight loss program — as a female thing,” he says. “I’m trying not only to do it for myself but I’m encouraging other guys to come on board and say we can do this. This will work for us, and we can do this and deal with the problem. If somebody goes, ‘Well, if George can do it, I can do it!’ – that’s great. Whatever it takes to get you heading in the right direction. If I’m it, great!”
