EXCLUSIVE Sara Rue: 30 Lbs. Down, 10 More to Go

After losing 30 lbs. in 12 weeks, actress Sara Rue is going for 10 more, she says. “The changing of your mind is often the hardest part,” says Rue, a spokesperson for Jenny Craig. “Now that I’ve conquered that, I’m ready for more!” Rue, 31, has struggled with her weight since she was a child. The red-headed actress, who starred in the TV show Eastwick, says she once lost a role due to her size. Determined to gain control of her weight, Rue joined the program in November and learned about how much to eat and healthy foods. She explains, “The key has been portion control, which has totally helped me not slip up, and has given me the necessary balance to feel good. I’m comfortable with this program, because it’s not a diet –- it’s a lifestyle change.” As a result, the pounds fell off — and she’s down to the last ten lbs of her Jenny Craig journey. Her reward for successful weigh-ins? A manicure. Rue enthuses, “Thanks to my 30-lb. weight loss, my nails have never looked better!” –Elaine Aradillas

Congratulations, good for her, and she deserves that manicure and I’m glad to hear her nails have never looked better, and I heard about the autopsy results about The Killer Whale Attack at SeaWorld and none of it surprises me!

I wish celebrities would keep their weights to themselves. Every time they do an article, bragging about their recent weight loss and how they accomplished it, I just know that within a year or so, they will be back in People magazine apologizing for gaining it back.

They shouldn’t have to apologize for gaining weight nor should they be praised for losing it. Weight doesn’t make them who they are. Once they realize that, they just might have a chance at being happy.

Hear that…Kirstie Alley, Sara Rue, Kelly Osborne…..etc.

Hmm… let me check …


I’d still bone her :-)

BIG SUPRISE.. As most men…you are thinking only with the little head!

Sure, pay me $50,000 and I’d be able to lose 40lbs too. But it’ll be back. Just ask Kirstie Alley.
