People Magazine has the details:
Valerie Bertinelli and Nicole Sullivan are about to be in even better company as Eastwick star Sara Rue joins them as the newest spokesperson for Jenny Craig. The 31-year-old actress tells PEOPLE that she can’t wait to start the program.
â€œMy weight has fluctuated my whole life (see her then & now in the picture!), and because I’ve been on television since I was 11 years old, everyone has seen it,â€ she explains. â€œI think like so many women in this country I have a problem controlling what I eat sometimes based on my emotional health.â€
Bertinelli, who lost 40 pounds on Jenny Craig, tells PEOPLE that Rue â€œis me three years ago. She’s every woman who’s ever started a diet.â€ She will be a good spokesperson because, â€œshe’s real. She’s honest.â€
Rue’s initial weight loss goal is 30 pounds. Then, she says, â€œwe’ll see how my body looks, how I feel, and go from there.â€
Her first post-weight loss goal? â€œRock climbing or wind surfing!â€ Rue says. â€œThe things that I’m just too intimidated the size I am now to do.â€
But the big question remains: Does she want to follow in Bertinelli’s footsteps and sport a bikini? â€œIf I look half as good as Valerie does at the end of this, maybe, possibly,â€ Rue says, smiling. â€œI don’t know if I’m more scared of sharks or being in a bathing suit. Maybe sharks, depending on the day.â€
