EXCLUSIVE: Nicole Sullivan Unveils Her Bikini Body, Thanks to Jenny Craig

Five months ago she announced her plan to drop 35 lbs. with Jenny Craig, and after 16 weeks on the program, Nicole Sullivan has met her goal! On March 22 — just one month before her 40th birthday — the Rita Rocks comedienne will showcase her better-than-before-baby bikini body in a national commercial spot — just like her successful predecessor Valerie Bertinelli. “I am beyond thrilled with my success on the Jenny Craig program,” the mom-of-two said. “After having Beckett, I dreamed of a day where I’d feel comfortable enough in a swimsuit, let alone a bikini, to join my husband on pool-side play dates. Getting into a bikini again and feeling as good as I feel now.” The best thing about dropping the weight? “[Now] my two children will always see Mommy as healthy! And my husband Jason can’t be more thrilled; he’s lost 25 pounds of ‘sympathy weight’ to boot.” And the funny lady, a MADtv alum, tells PEOPLE that there is one more fun bonus: shopping! “I went in and bought a pair of size 4 pants and I don’t ever remember doing that — maybe when I was 21 [years-old]. I feel like the world has opened up to me. Does a lot of it have to do with fun clothes? Yeah, but you know what? Women love fun clothes. It’s a big deal to us. I feel like I can wear anything in my closet. And I can buy stuff that’s really cute.” Hear more from Nicole on her weight loss in this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands tomorrow. –reporting by Elaine Aradillas

Wonderful!! Keep up the good work!

I’m sorry, but this picture is not flattering. Her face and head looks huge but her body looks shrunken. This doesn’t look like a person that went on a healthy diet and exercise program. It looks like she starved herself. Not attractive at all. Quite scary.

W2G Nicole! I’ve been on Jenny Craig for 4 weeks and have lost 13 lbs. I agree – it’s healthy eating!

Her face looks odd in the bikini pic. Maybe it’s just a bad angle.

ITA with Rusty…horrid picture, and she’s a cute girl normally. Why would they choose this picture…surely there are better ones. Her figure does look good, though. Good for her!

Wow…first I’ll say that she deserves kudos for all the hard work– we all know losing weight is not easy. However, in my opinion she looks a little too thin and her head is disproportionate to her body. A lot of times, this will happen when someone who is not naturally thin gets too thin. Weight loss looks best when it is in balance with your God given frame size.

She does NOT look healthy at all!

I think she looks fantastic. I can’t believe she had a baby 5 months ago. Loved her on MadTV

She looks sickly and she’s got a lollipop head. It’s sad that she went too far with the weight loss because she was cute.

Her face looks too thin.
