Sara Rue lost an incredible 50 lbs with Jenny Craig — and is finally ready to show off her body in a bikini, for the first time ever!
“If you would have told me one year ago that I would be in a national commercial in a bikini, I would have thought you were crazy,” says Rue, who looks amazing in a green pin-up suit. “But now, I feel so confident and comfortable.”
Though she looks happy and healthy now, Rue says it wasn’t always so. “I missed out on so many fun experiences because I was ashamed and embarrassed of how I looked in a swimsuit, but eventually I got to the point where I didn’t want my weight to define me anymore, so I did something about it. Now I feel like there’s nothing holding me back. It’s a wonderful, freeing feeling that I never thought I would accomplish.”
And while she’s lost weight, don’t expect her to lose her curves: “I strongly believe that it’s not about being thin; it’s about being comfortable in my skin. I love my curves, and I don’t want to lose them by overdoing it. I still want to look like a real woman.”
