So Far, So Good: Sara Rue Loses 7 Pounds In 5 Days On Jenny Craig

Posted on


It’s only been five days since she started on the Jenny Craig weight management program and actress Sara Rue is already down seven pounds, she tells PEOPLE. “For me, it was key that I started on Saturday (after Thanksgiving) because I didn’t have any distractions, I didn’t have to be anywhere. I could just focus on planning my meals and getting a good start on the weekend,” says the Eastwick star, who was announced as Jenny Craig’s new celebrity spokesperson Wednesday. Rue confessed that the biggest challenge for her is being so open about her weight. “I’m a very private person so talking openly about this is hard. But when the news broke on, I twittered about it and people were so supportive twittering back,” Rue said, noting that her first five days of dieting were surprisingly easy. “I do not feel deprived at all. There is so much food. I was eating all the food and I was sure I was gaining weight,” she says, laughing. Rue credits her two dogs for helping her adhere to daily walks, and enjoys hiking with her fiancé, education consultant Kevin Price. “I kind of like the idea of getting to January 1 and I’m already doing my New Year’s resolution,” Rue says. “But there’s nothing you can’t have on this plan. You just have to remember that nothing tastes as good as the first bite.” –Monica Rizzo
