So Far, So Good: Sara Rue Loses 7 Pounds In 5 Days On Jenny Craig

12/03/2009 at 05:20 PM ET


It’s only been five days since she started on the Jenny Craig weight management program and actress Sara Rue is already down seven pounds, she tells PEOPLE. “For me, it was key that I started on Saturday (after Thanksgiving) because I didn’t have any distractions, I didn’t have to be anywhere. I could just focus on planning my meals and getting a good start on the weekend,” says the Eastwick star, who was announced as Jenny Craig’s new celebrity spokesperson Wednesday. Rue confessed that the biggest challenge for her is being so open about her weight. “I’m a very private person so talking openly about this is hard. But when the news broke on, I twittered about it and people were so supportive twittering back,” Rue said, noting that her first five days of dieting were surprisingly easy. “I do not feel deprived at all. There is so much food. I was eating all the food and I was sure I was gaining weight,” she says, laughing. Rue credits her two dogs for helping her adhere to daily walks, and enjoys hiking with her fiancé, education consultant Kevin Price. “I kind of like the idea of getting to January 1 and I’m already doing my New Year’s resolution,” Rue says. “But there’s nothing you can’t have on this plan. You just have to remember that nothing tastes as good as the first bite.” –Monica Rizzo

I tried Jenny Craig after having no success with all other diet=systems – to my surprise it was the only system that worked for me – (to this day I don’t know why) I lost 25 lbs. the first month and after 6 months I lost 40 lbs, which was my goal – VERY SATISFIED -

Jenny Craig works like any other diet, you have to eat smaller portions. I lost 37 lbs last year and gained 16 back, because I ate like I did before I went to JC. I am a life time member and I have lost the 16. Yes JC is over priced but I don’t have to cook. Sara will do good as long as she follow the program. good luck

I really hope Sara Rue does not loose too much weight – she is very sexy the way she is – and she looks healthy, more to the point
