CARLSBAD, Calif., May 12 (UPI) -- U.S. actress and author Carrie Fisher has lost 30 pounds in 18 weeks by using the Jenny Craig weight-loss program, the company said Thursday.

Best known for her role as Princess Leia in the original "Star Wars" trilogy, as well as for her work in the award-winning one-woman stage show "Wishful Drinking," Fisher started Jenny Craig last November.

At the time she said: "If I lose 10 pounds, it'll be a miracle. If I lose 30, my outside would match my inside."

After accomplishing her goal, Fisher said she now has a new outlook on life, and is excited to show off her physique during her summer tour of "Wishful Drinking," which starts in Toronto July 21.

"Before Jenny Craig, I had tried and failed with so many diets, so losing any amount of weight seemed crazy to me. Now I'm 30 pounds lighter, and I didn't have to starve or deprive myself of my favorite foods. Plus, I have my personal consultant Kathy with me every step along the way. With this weight loss, it's like a whole new Carrie has emerged," Fisher said in a statement. "I no longer want to hide in the house."

Jenny Craig said its clients, on average, lose 1-2 pounds per week.
