Curvy actress Sara Rue
has been named diet firm Jenny Craig's new celebrity spokeswoman - and she's already enjoying big success just five days after she started using the weight-loss plan.
The TV star, who won acclaim for her role as a Stevie Nicks
super fan in cult 2001 film Gypsy 83
, will take over from Valerie Bertinelli
as Jenny Craig's leading diet role model.
Rue, who was officially named the new spokeswoman on Wednesday, began her latest diet this weekend - and she's already seeing results.
She explains, "I started on Saturday because I didn't have any distractions. I didn't have to be anywhere. I could just focus on planning my meals and getting a good start on the weekend. I do not feel deprived at all. There is so much food. I was eating all the food and I was sure I was gaining weight."
She claims she has already lost seven pounds in five days.
