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 so surprised by so many rude comments! Yes Jenny Craig is expensive but when you look how much money the average person spends a week on feeding themselves you’d be surprised how much the additional expense really is! Regardless of the expense Sara had to follow the program through will power and hard work to lose that weight and she deserves a big congratulations. Whatever diet plan you chose has it’s positives and negatives and Jenny Craig is no exception! There is always a huge lifestyle change for anyone who has lost a significant amount of weight on any diet plan and a challenge to maintain the new weight. I’ve lost over 50lbs and it’s a challenge everyday to maintain that weight loss! I do it through excercise and monitoring my calories. Good for Sara! I wish her the best!

Also as a side note-I think she is saying that she hopes to be a size 8 not that she is (thus the “cloths that are waiting for me”

The good thing about the Jenny Craig program is after you reach your goal, they teach you how to eat normally and keep the weight off. You don’t just stop the program after you get the weight off. That’s what Kirstie did. Valerie didn’t, so she’s keeping the weight off.

Also, when you compare the JC meals to what people spend on junk food, it’s not that expensive.

I’m not an employee, but I’m a JC client and I love the program.

Sara isn’t the newest spokesperson, tho. Jason Alexander just signed on!

Sara looks FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!

Good for her.

Not everyone can afford jenny craig a personal trainer LINDA and as for RENEE This is Sara’s AFTER PIC, you idiot.

There are ways to exercise like at home, go for a walk in your area, by yourself or with friends or your dog and there are gyms out there that are not that expensive, too. You just have to do some research.

She looks GREAT just like Valerie.
I want to do this program so bad—-but I live on a fixed Social Security Disability monthly income and there is NO way I can afford it.
So do obese people ever get a break—–NO because it cost money.

wendy on

you know how it is, money gets you a lot. Money and being popular always helps.

YEP!!! must be nice.

She looks great but do you think you could post a better picture? NOthing wrong with her but do we really need to see poeple in the shoot in the glass? I would expect better from a professional photographer!!!!!!!

For those who say she isn’t a size 2- of course she isn’t. I think she’s just pointing out that she was at some point in time, and has those clothes. (Although really, she’s a short short person) But she looks fabulous!

why can’t you guys be happy for her instead of putting her down…..valerie still looks the same…she didn’t gain the weight back…and jenny craig is 20 bux plus the cost of food…how is that expensive? get over your jealous selves and be happy for her

I think some of your remarks are out of line. Jealousy sure reared its head in here. Of course money figures into any diet plan like Jenny Craig or even Weight Watchers, but if you have the desire to lose the weight, and you DON’T have the money for the program…YOU will figure out a way to lose the weight and NOT be so fast to cast disparaging remarks against someone who is a success story. I have been on both sides of the fence and it is up to you to determine which is better for you. IF you don’t like the extra weight, put your fork down and walk away. Take a walk or even sit on the couch and do leg lifts or anything to help you get started. It isn’t up to Jenny or Weight Watchers, It is UP TO YOU. Have a good day :)
