Eight months after signing on to be a Jenny Craig spokesperson, Sara Rue is at the weight she plans to stay. Dropping a remarkable 50 pounds, and going from a size 14 to her current 6, the actress says she’s comfortable with her body as is. “I’m done losing weight,” she tells PEOPLE. “I feel great, and I love looking like a woman. I love being curvy and having boobs and hips. It’s hot. I don’t ever want to be size zero.” Rue, who is now on Jenny Craig’s maintenance program, says she still has to work at keeping off the weight. “I do my workouts five times a week,” she says. “I work out with my trainer one or two times a week, and we run together. As long as I do cardio for 45 minutes to an hour each day I work out, I feel like I’m okay.” And while Rue keeps to a strict diet and exercise regimen, she admits that she always allows herself room for treats. “On the Jenny Craig plan, you can have a glass of wine,” she says. “So, yeah, I drink wine, I drink champagne.” But the best treat of all for Rue was landing the stamp of approval from her best friend’s boyfriend. “I hadn’t seen him in months, and he was like, ‘Holy s—t!’ really loudly and he kept staring at me,” she says. “I think he had the best reaction.” –Dahvi Shira

@ Lindsay – Whiile I would also say a 6 is skinny, by Hollywood standards (which being an actress she goes by) it’s considered curvy. I’m not saying it’s right, but that is just how it is.

Wow you are gorgeous!!! You were gorgeous before you lost all that weight. But you look amazing, you’ve always been beautiful, and keep up the good work. Yummy!!!!!!!!!!

I think she looks fabulous and anyone who is bashing her is jealous. Yes, being healthy is the most important things and the “size” doesn’t matter. However, if you are in the double digit sizes, you are not curvy, you are overweight and most likely not healthy. Obesity is a huge problem in the US, it is out of control. I understand this personal struggle with weight, I lost 40 lbs…the hard way (no personal trainer, cook, etc)

Sara is drop-dead gorgeous.
She is an inspiration to everyone to get to the right weight.

When I was a size 6 I was a skinny little thing. I am happier with a little meat on my bones, and I find men also like me better that way. They like a woman who they can take out to eat and will actually EAT SOMETHING.

Don’t get me wrong, Sara is gorgeous regradless, but I think she lost too much weight, women are meant to have curves. That said, shr is still smokin’ hot

Sara Rue is beautiful no matter her size or shape! I’m glad she likes being curvy and not stick thin. I think she is an excellent role model. And she looks GREAT!

With regard to appearance, she may have lost too much weight-
Her cheekbones seem to have virtually melted away-
