What better place to flaunt your spanking new size-six self than to an Emmy party? After dropping a remarkable 50 pounds, actress and Jenny Craig spokesperson Sara Rue did just that, showing off her svelte figure in a chic Rory Beca dress at Entertainment Tonight‘s Emmy party on Sunday. No longer self-conscious about her appearance, Rue said that she now has time to focus on the important things in life. “I’m able to fret about other things outside of what I’m going to wear, and how I’m going to look,” the actress told PEOPLE. “I can worry, instead, about whether or not we’re going to be there on time, or what time I have to be up tomorrow morning,” explained Rue, who declared her current weight as a healthy one. And to keep herself in that healthy range, Rue said she is still watching the calories and sticking to Jenny Craig’s maintenance plan. “I’m still calling my consultant, and still eating the food, but I’m just not as regimented as I was.” Just don’t expect her slimdown to go any further. “I don’t feel the need to be any thinner than I already am,” she said. “I like being curvy, I like having boobs, and I know that I’m a representation of someone that has not taken it too far to one extreme or the other.” –Jessie Goldberg; reporting by Reagan Alexander

I’m loving Sarah Rue! I know there are going to be people out there who disagree that she’s a size 6 now…I was one of those disbelievers not too long ago! However, I’m on my own weight loss journey and I think I have changed my tune. I have about about 40 pounds to go (I’ve lost 74 so far) before I hit my goal weight, and I’m a size 12 now. She started out as a 14 if I remember right, so I believe that after losing 50 pounds it is possible for her to be in a 6.

Way to go, Sarah! Keep up the great work! You are an inspiration to me!! :-)

Wow, I find it insulting that everyone thinks you are a better person just because you are skinny.

All of those that have commented so far have said they they liked Sara even before she lost the weight so what are you talking about Donna??? Formulate your thoughts better before venting, k?

I think she looks great. And just so some people know having alot of extra weight isn’t good for your health, some people have to lose it for health reasons, just saying.

I used to be a fan of Sara but after seeing her adds and listening to my eight year old niece cry because she never be beautiful because she is naturally a bigger girl after seeing sara talk about how unhappy she was as a size 16 I have lost so much respect for her. What kind of an example is she setting for women today, skinny does not make you happy or beautiful it is what is inside that counts and that is what should be promoted not this…….

I have always adored Sara Rue, no matter what shape or size she is! She is a good actress and I enjoy her in everything she’s in. She lights up the screen from within! But she does look amazing and I am sure feels healthier too.(I know I did after a bit of weight loss and healthy exercise). Kudos to her for loving having her curves still! Just another reason I think she is amazing and will watch anything she is in!
