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

Gee, I don’t know why everyone gains it back Brenda. You should ask Valerie Bertinelli?

Yea, I don’t blame her. That Jenny Craig food is horrible. For all that money, they don’t even taste as good as Lean Cuisine.

I’ve always liked Sara she’s a fantastic actress. I think she looks fantastic but I thought so before too. Congrats to her for all her hard work.
lindsay you might have been skinny as a size six while Sara does still look curvy. Thats why aiming for a “Size” isn’t a great goal. Height and body shape differ for everyone changing how they look at a certain size. Someone who’s 5 foot tall with a slender body shape might look quite large in a size 6 where as a taller girl with a curvy figure (like a friend of mine) looks sickly and skinny in the same size. As a nurse we teach people about healthy weight ranges and waist circumfrences rather than clothing sizes.

She looks great! The only thing I dont understand is why the have to say what size they are. There is so much pressure for girls with weight these days. It is better just to send the message that they are healthy and happy.

She looks great and I am glad that she is not planning on losing any more weight. She looks thin enough.

a size 6 is curvy. what was wrong with the 14. I wish I was still a 12. I was at my smallest then and I thought it was great. Maybe its a canadian thing

Good lord, shut up. How desperate to these people have to be to stay “relevant” that they have to keep discussing their weight publicly.
