Continued from Sara Rue’s Diet and Sara Rue’s Workout.
How Sara Rue lost 50 pounds – do you want to know? Does anyone want to know how Sara Rue lost 50 pounds? If you want to know her weight-loss secret, you can read the Sara Rue Lost 50 Pounds post, but in short, she did what a lot of celebrities do to lose weight these days. No, I am not talking about clenbuterol or other dangerous weight-loss methods certain celebrities often use to lose weight – I am talking about Jenny Craig and exercise.
That’s right, she lost 50 pounds in less than a year on Jenny Craig, how cool is that? Some would say that losing weight on Jenny Craig is as cool as wearing tube socks, but I disagree. Does it really matter how she lost weight? No, it does not. The only thing that matters is that she did it safely. It also matters if she has learned how to keep the lost weight off, which she claims she did.
If you want to know more about how Sara Rue lost 50 pounds, here is an excerpt from a recent interview with her on this subject.
You look amazing! Was it hard to change your diet? In the past eight months I’ve gone from wanting stuff that was not good for me to wanting only things that are good for me. I’m craving veggies and fruits.
So you don’t feel deprived or tempted? When I started, I remember being like, “Wait a minute! I can eat spaghetti and cheesecake [on Jenny Craig]?” I was shocked at the amount of food I could have and how easy it was. I could eat carbs and all these things I thought were “bad foods.” You can have what you want – just in moderation.
What was the most challenging part? The emotional side of it. I’ve been on a weight roller coaster since I was a little kid. I’ve been working not only toward losing weight but getting my mind in a healthier spot.
How are you dealing with that? Being an emotional eater, you don’t just eat when you’re sad; you eat when you’re happy, bored or when you feel anything. I didn’t know how to handle those emotions, so I would eat. Instead, I’ve been learning to sit with feelings and move through them and be okay. Once you realize that you can do that, you don’t have to squash feelings down with food. I will still feel like, “Why do I feel the need to go out to dinner right now?” I realize it’s because I’m stressed, and I can think it out and not overeat. [via]
