Only a year and a half after she began the Jenny Craig program, Sara Rue has lost more than 50 lbs. – and 4 dress sizes! – and is wearing a bikini for the very first time in her life.
"It's a little strange," says the Shedding for the Wedding host, 32. "But after I tried it on, I thought, 'I look good!' "
Since July of last year, Rue has been on a Jenny Craig maintenance plan that consists of cardio workouts four days a week and 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's hosting a new show in which people battle to lose weight for their weddings, but Sara Rue is grateful she doesn't have to do so herself.
"It's nice to not have that be a stressful thing," the actress, who hosts the CW's new reality competition Shedding for the Wedding, tells PEOPLE. "Planning a wedding can be stressful enough, and I'm glad I don't have that to worry about."
Rue, 33, who's preparing to wed teacher Kevin Price in May, famously lost 50 lbs. on the Jenny Craig weight-loss program, and says she works hard at staying trim.

Sure, it's been nearly 18 months since she and teacher Kevin Price got engaged, but that didn't prevent actress, Jenny Craig spokesperson and upcoming Shedding for the Wedding host Sara Rue from formally celebrating with friends and family at L.A.'s Soho House last Saturday night.
"We set a date at end of May and my manager, who's been my manager since I was 12 and is kind of like my L.A. Dad, wanted to have an official engagement party to sort of kick things off," Rue, 32, tells PEOPLE. "All our close friends and some family came. It was perfect."
Equally perfect, Rue says, is the Amsale wedding gown she picked out the day before the engagement party.

Jenny Craig spokeswoman and Shedding for the Wedding host Sara Rue is finally kicking her wedding planning into high gear.
"It's going really well all of a sudden," Rue, 31, told PEOPLE at the Audi and J Mendel Golden Globes Week kick-off bash. "We actually just hired a wedding planner, which we have been saying we were going to do for a year – and we actually did it."
The newly trim TV star, whose show premieres Feb. 23, has been engaged to her fiancé, teacher Kevin Price, since August 2009 but has just partnered with the "amazing" Rachel Hollis, a wedding planner for Chic Events.
