Sara Rue ROCKS Her FIRST Bikini

Sara Rue lost 50 pounds and now she’s rocking a hot bod and a bikini for the first time ever!

“It’s a little strange.  But after I tried it on, I thought, ‘I look good!’ “

Sara has been on Jenny Craig since July which includes a 1,700-calorie-a-day diet.

“It’s hard. It’s a struggle,” she says of keeping off the weight. “There are days where I’ll say, ‘I feel off the rails.’ But I don’t give myself excuses.”

She shared a few tricks she has for keeping the weight off,

“I try not to eat animal protein after 7:30 p.m.,” she says. “And when I make pasta, I layer the bottom of the bowl with fresh spinach. That way you’re having the pasta, but with half the carbs.”

Check out Sara on the CW’s ‘Shedding for the Wedding’ series tonight!

Congrats Sara!  You look amazing!  Job well done!
