After losing 30 lbs. in 12 weeks, actress Sara Rue is going for 10 more, she says. “The changing of your mind is often the hardest part,” says Rue, a spokesperson for Jenny Craig. “Now that I’ve conquered that, I’m ready for more!” Rue, 31, has struggled with her weight since she was a child. The red-headed actress, who starred in the TV show Eastwick, says she once lost a role due to her size. Determined to gain control of her weight, Rue joined the program in November and learned about how much to eat and healthy foods. She explains, “The key has been portion control, which has totally helped me not slip up, and has given me the necessary balance to feel good. I’m comfortable with this program, because it’s not a diet –- it’s a lifestyle change.” As a result, the pounds fell off — and she’s down to the last ten lbs of her Jenny Craig journey. Her reward for successful weigh-ins? A manicure. Rue enthuses, “Thanks to my 30-lb. weight loss, my nails have never looked better!” –Elaine Aradillas
