Move over, Valerie Bertinelli, Jenny Craig has a sexy new spokeswoman! Just nine weeks after committing to the weight-loss plan, actress Sara Rue (who found fame as the plus-sized star of ABC's 2002-'06 sitcom Less Than Perfect) has lost 25 pounds. And she's thrilled to be just five pounds from her goal.
"I have a second closet with clothes ranging in sizes 2 to 8 that are waiting for me,” she told People. “When I get there, I’m going to see how I feel,” she says of the possibility of going further with her weight loss. “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.”
Rue, 31, has set her sights on another goal, as well -- wearing her dream outfit and feeling great in it. "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!”
Up next for Rue and her new bod? A guest stint on ABC's Private Practice.
