She's Almost There: Sara Rue Loses 25 Lbs. on Jenny Craig

A little more than two months ago, Jenny Craig’s newest spokeswoman, Sara Rue, announced to PEOPLE her goal of losing 30 lbs. with the program. After five days she had dropped 7 lbs., and now, just nine weeks after she began she’s already shed 25 lbs. — and can’t wait to lose the final 5. “I have a second closet with clothes ranging in sizes 2 to 8 that are waiting for me,” she says. And while Sara has almost met her original goal, the actress is open to dropping even more weight. “When I get there, I’m going to see how I feel,” she says. “It’s going to be less about clothes or how a pair of pants fit and more about if I go to the doctor and get on the scale, am I going to be considered a healthy person. If I am, I’m done.” The actress, who will appear in an upcoming episode of Private Practice keeps motivated with a fantasy outfit that she envisions wearing someday — soon. “I imagine myself in these dark blue skinny jeans, Christian Louboutin black heels and a scoop-neck tank,” she says. “Plain, simple, cute, comfortable. I don’t need to be in a Carolina Herrera designer gown — although those are nice, too!” Tell us: What do you think of Sara’s new slimmer look?–Elaine Aradillas

I am amazed at the people who go on Jenny Craig and lose weight and then end up putting it right back on. Kirstie Alley, Valerie Bertinelli. It is not good to lose weight that quickly. She will never keep it off. You cannot eat Jenny Craig food for the rest of your life. Try Weight Watchers. It is a great program, you lose weight sensibly and still eat real food.

I wish I could go on Jenny Craig but it doesnt fit my budget. People who think you eat frozen meals forever on the program, you are wrong. Half way to your goal weight, you transition to real food and you can have a real food day whenever you want.

Weight Watchers is all about junk food and not health in my opinion. Meeting are just about learning how much junk food you can eat with as little points as possible.

Well goody for her. If she was so sure of herself, she wouldnt be promoting herself.Give yourself a great big pat on your back, hon. Youll gain it back.

I think it is great that she has lost weight, but sad that her “fat size” is an 8.

Wow, a lot of people on here are pissy. Just because you gained it all back doesn’t mean she will. Jealous and bitter, much?

I hate that she says the number on the scale will determine if she’s “healthy”. Being thin does NOT equal being healthy! I wish our society would realize that you can be healthy at many different sizes instead of pushing women to be as thin as possible. Brittany Murphy died that way – I’d rather be healthy and “fat” than skinny and dead.

I love Sara Rue’s new slimmer look, congrats on losing the weight, you go girl!

kathie on

She still looks fat to me

No need to spend too much money to lose weight, cut some carbs, cut fried foods, stop eating so many sweets, eat more vegetables less starches and exercise. Cannot do a full work out everyday? Walk, skip the elevator and take the stairs, stand up more often during the day, etc. Anyone can change their metabolism, my highest weight was 150 lbs at college, I’ve been 115 lbs for years now! and if I put on some extra weight during the year, it’ll go away after a couple days of sensible eating, no diets!!!!
Well done Sara, hope you continue losing weight and you can keep it off.

I’ve always liked her, and she looks great! But she shouldn’t worry about clothing size so much – better health and confidence should be more important.
I’m not a big fan of plans like that, most people gain back once they’re off the food, and it is pricey. But sometimes people need to use a plan like that as a jump start to make them think about portion size, exercise, etc.
Good luck to her!
