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

Why does everyone in Hollywood who have ever lost weight claim to be a size 2? Do you know how tiny that is! Sara is not a 2, Jennifer Love-Hewitt is not a size 2, Kim and Khloe are not a size 2! Victoria Beckham…she’s a size 2!

Wow, lot’s of mean spirited, jealous women making comments here. Do you have to wonder why a lot of women have unrealistic ideals concerning weight? Just check out a sample of the comments for this story. Some of you should be ashamed of yourselves for the comments you’ve made.

She looks great, let’s see the pics of some of the more rude comments here and see what kind of scrutiny you get.

sara has lost and gained weight time and time again..let’s face it the real world how many people over the age of 18 are a size 2 and where do they live?or even buy their clothes/ she is a beautiful talented woman who is a classic beauty inside/out .most women would kill to be a size 8..valerie bertinelli looks like another hollywood bimbo now…

I thought Sara looked great just the way she was. I only hope that Sara doesn’t overdue it with this diet. I don’t want her to turn into Lindsay Lohan or Victoria Beckham.

The main thing that you lose with Jenny Craig is the money in your wallet. Of course, Sarah Rue, doesn’t have to worry about that, even if she can afford Jenny a lot more than any of us writing comments. Once you get off the program food, the weight comes right back on. I know this from personal experience.

GO, SARA!!! You have always been beautiful, now you look stunning. Your wealth is what really matters in the end, though. Best of luck with the remaining 5lbs… just don’t overdo it. Curvaceous bodies are better than a toothpick.

Fantastic for her…but in reality – Jenny Craig is expensive and you can only use their foods and people. If you want to do this for life, fine. But in reality that is not an option for anyone. CHANGE THE WAY YOU EAT and HOW MUCH YOU EAT. Stick to RAW FOODS, NO PROCESSED FOODS and GO ORGANIC! There are tons of toxins in processed foods. Do very little cooking (takes essential vitamins and oils out of the fruits and veggies) and eat more fruits, veggies and grains…NO WHITE FLOUR, NO STARCHES. Great Book “You Are What You Eat”…I have lost over 50 pounds and find that it is easy to keep off, ONCE YOU HAVE CHANGED YOUR LIFESTYLE OF EATING.

Must be nice to have all the food paid for you! It’s a very expensive program.
