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

Well i think she looks amazing.She clearly had a goal and stuck to it. She followed the Jenny Craig system along with a intense exercise program and has had amazing results.She’s a mom of 2 and looks terrific.Way to go!

I think she looked better before. She MIGHT have been able to lose 15 pounds to look better, but now she has that “bobble-head” look. I’ve always liked her work, but now I’m just sad to see that she went for the stereotypical Hollywood body. What a shame.

first I thought, who is Nicole Sullivan.
Then when I clicked to find out, woah!
Unflattering photo!

High five to weight loss though.

I think she looks absolutely stunning. It’s annoying how people find body traits that have nothing to do with how she looks after the diet. Her head is too big? WHAT?? Maybe you guys should look at your own bodies and analyze what’s too big or too small.

Nicole, you look fantastic.

I have to agree about her picture, I’ve seen prettier of her. But I can’t get over her stomach! Look at her before picture, she obviously worked hard for this. Plus, she naturally has a small frame. People have a right to their opinion, I just wish they would be less hurtful.

that’s a pretty rock’in body after having kids, too bad the photog didn’t pic a better shot, a little different angle and she would look even better.

Wow, Nicole looks great! It’s awesome she decided to take a healthy approach to weight loss and exercise, especially since she’s a celebrity! Congrats :)

Jackie on

She did NOT look better before. Look at the sparkle in her eye she has now that she feels good, sexier. She is obviously a pretty small person to start. Two kids and 40? I say way to go!!!

Jon on

She looks amazing! Way to go Nicole!
