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

She is beautiful at any size and, so long as SHE is happy with herself and healthy nothing else matters.

If she is a size 8, then I am non-existent. What a liar!

why does she need to lose any weight to wear skinny jeans and a t-shirt? they would look good on her right now!

Jenny Craig isn’t for everyone. Yes it can be expensive, but yes it works. You don’t eat their food forever, you get to start eating REAL food about 1/2 way. They teach you how to eat smart and the best way. It keeps me accountable, and I know that the program is working in a healthy 1-2 lb weight loss a week.

You need to also add exercise, it’s not just going to fall off.

Sara looks amazing, you don’t have to be a size 2 to be beautiful in hollywood. I applaud her and hopes she gets healthy for herself.

Congrats to Sara!!! You look AWESOME!!! This comment is for all of the people who say that Sara will gain the weight back- I started Jenny Craig two years ago and lost 70 lbs. I travel for work about 60% of the time, which means I couldn’t always eat Jenny Craig food, however, I was able to lose weight and have been able to maintain it for over a year. I had to learn how to make the right choices. Jenny Craig doesn’t teach you how to eat “TV dinners” out of the box, but it teaches you about portion control, how important exercise is, and how making the right choices can affect every part of your life, including your weight. I don’t have a ton of money, but I made the choice to sacrifice not to eat out all the time and go to happy hour every weekend with my friends so I could be successful on the program. So yes, you can keep the weight off after the Jenny Craig program…..I have!! You have to use what you learn on the program and apply it to your life because it is a lifestyle change. Good luck to anyone who is planning to join the program:)

Wow she looks great. I am shocked at her losing so much weight in so little time. I thought it was dangerous to do that, but i guess it isnt if you have the right people watching your progress and health.

She does look great, but let’s be honest: anyone who has a second closet “full of clothes waiting” is clearly only doing it for the clothes. To say otherwise is just delusional. If it was really about health only, there would be no mention of a second closet or the “cute outfits.” All the clothes talk negates the talk of being healthy, imo.

Doesn’t Valerie Berinelli get Jenny Craig for free because she is/was a spokesman?
