She's Almost There: Sara Rue Loses 25 Lbs. on Jenny Craig

A little more than two months ago, Jenny Craig’s newest spokeswoman, Sara Rue, announced to PEOPLE her goal of losing 30 lbs. with the program. After five days she had dropped 7 lbs., and now, just nine weeks after she began she’s already shed 25 lbs. — and can’t wait to lose the final 5. “I have a second closet with clothes ranging in sizes 2 to 8 that are waiting for me,” she says. And while Sara has almost met her original goal, the actress is open to dropping even more weight. “When I get there, I’m going to see how I feel,” she says. “It’s going to be less about clothes or how a pair of pants fit and more about if I go to the doctor and get on the scale, am I going to be considered a healthy person. If I am, I’m done.” The actress, who will appear in an upcoming episode of Private Practice keeps motivated with a fantasy outfit that she envisions wearing someday — soon. “I imagine myself in these dark blue skinny jeans, Christian Louboutin black heels and a scoop-neck tank,” she says. “Plain, simple, cute, comfortable. I don’t need to be in a Carolina Herrera designer gown — although those are nice, too!” Tell us: What do you think of Sara’s new slimmer look?–Elaine Aradillas

YES JENNY IS A GREAT PROGRAM, FOR THOSE THAT CAN AFFORD IT OR IF IT IS A FREEBIE. YOU DON’T SEE JENNY HELPING SOME OF THESE PEOPLE THAT ARE EVERY DAY PEOPLE LET THE CELIBATES START PAYING. ALSO LET SEE LETS LOOK AT PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN ON IT AND LOST A LOT NOW THEY HAVE GAIN THE WEIGHT BACK.
I KNOW BECAUSE I WAS ON IT AND YES LOST A LOT OF WEIGHT BUT THE COST WAS JUST TO MUCH, I HAVE GAIN THE WEIGHT I LOST PLUS SOME MORE. STARTED WEIGHT WATCHES, YOU DON’T HAVE TO HAVE SPECIAL FOODS, JUST LEARN TO EAT DIFFERENT

You are right that Jenny Craig is expensive. I started on it…..lost about 10 pounds and couldn’t affort it anymore. That is what puts me off most of them. They have stars who weight less than 150 lbs as spokespersons (aside from Kirstie Alley) who go on and on about all the weight they lost…..Get someone around 250 and see how they do. Kirstie lost weight and gained it all back, plus some more.
I’m seriously considering the “Full Bar”….what do you think?

she has lost weight before and gained it back. I hope it works this time

Congrats to her! She looks great! I have to agree that the way to do it is change your lifestyle, not trndy diet programs. I’ve lost 40 lbs. I’ve gone from a size 14 to a 4or 6 (depending on the brand) and dropped from 174 to 134 and I feel great! I cut out fried foods and cut way back on sweets. I walk around my neighborhhod when it’s not too cold out, I also have a Gazelle that I love!

I have lost 25 pounds in 8 weeks by watching what I eat and burning 350 calories a day on the Wii Fit Plus. Goes to show you no pre-packaged foods needed!

She looks good. :)

It’s great she lost the weight, but a woman with a family and everyday financial obligations would not be able to afford Jenny Craig…it is very expensive and I doubt most woman could afford the food,personal trainer, and gym membership to be able to look the way the stars do when they lose the weight. I would be more impressed with Jenny Craig if you would hire and every day woman and give her a chance for free to lose the weight.

I thought she was gorgeous the way she was. I hope she doesn’t lose too much weight. I can understand her wanting feel and be healthy. But her voluptious figure is one of the things that makes her so appealing and yummy and stand out from the rest of all the boring women in Hollywood. And she ALREADY stands out as beautiful among the woman who are not part of the Hollywood machine. I wish she had more people around her telling her that!
