Eight months after signing on to be a Jenny Craig spokesperson, Sara Rue is at the weight she plans to stay. Dropping a remarkable 50 pounds, and going from a size 14 to her current 6, the actress says she’s comfortable with her body as is. “I’m done losing weight,” she tells PEOPLE. “I feel great, and I love looking like a woman. I love being curvy and having boobs and hips. It’s hot. I don’t ever want to be size zero.” Rue, who is now on Jenny Craig’s maintenance program, says she still has to work at keeping off the weight. “I do my workouts five times a week,” she says. “I work out with my trainer one or two times a week, and we run together. As long as I do cardio for 45 minutes to an hour each day I work out, I feel like I’m okay.” And while Rue keeps to a strict diet and exercise regimen, she admits that she always allows herself room for treats. “On the Jenny Craig plan, you can have a glass of wine,” she says. “So, yeah, I drink wine, I drink champagne.” But the best treat of all for Rue was landing the stamp of approval from her best friend’s boyfriend. “I hadn’t seen him in months, and he was like, ‘Holy s—t!’ really loudly and he kept staring at me,” she says. “I think he had the best reaction.” –Dahvi Shira

I’m so happy she lost weight, but she and Jennifer Husdon both look too small!! Some women are just meant to be bigger, because now they both have the lollipop look..but congrats to her if she loves it…

I thought she looked great before. I think she looks great now. Most important is her being happy with herself. She seems to be and THAT’S wonderful!

she thinks a size 6 is curvy!?!?!? when i was a size 6 i thought i was skinny!

OMG… who gives a s*** what size you are. One may think you are size 6 but I have news for you, the clothing industry plays games and not everything you wear will be a size 6. Just be happy with yourself. As long as your are healthy and fit. Having battling an eating disorder myslef, I am so tired of hearing about sizes.

You’re right. The good thing is she is happy with herself. I’m a size 4 and I’m not happy with myself. My weight yes, but my flabby stomach after having a child 6 months ago. Not at all. I think they should make a weight loss reality tv show for women who have kids and want to get back to their post baby bodies! lol Now that would be interesting to watch. Especially see REAL women’s bodies how the REALly are after having kids.
