Carrie Fisher Shows Off Her Slimmer Figure (Photos)

Carrie Fisher reached her goal to drop 30 pounds and has revealed her new, slimmer look.
Fisher, who is most known for her role as Princess Leia in the the 'Star Wars' films, became one of the many celebrities to link up with a weight loss program when she joined Jenny Craig 18 weeks ago.
She started the program in November 2010 and said "If I lose 10 pounds, it'll be a miracle. If I lose 30, my outside would match my inside." Now 6 months later and 30 pounds lighter, she is ready to set a new weight loss goal.
Fisher has struggled with her weight for many years and has been known to stay out of the media spotlight, but her new figure has given her the confidence to step outside again.
"I used to feel like I had to apologize for the way I looked whenever I stepped out of the house," said Fisher. "I spent so much energy coming up with reasons why I was overweight. Now, whenever someone compliments me, I smile and say, 'well, thank you.' It's a great feeling to feel like myself again, and that I am truly worthy of those compliments."
