Well, speaking of her then-over sized body, the issue was something the actress had always faced with whilst growing up. If one were to look at the old pictures and the videos from her early life and old tv shows or movies, her pain can be pretty understandable.
As a plus-size woman, Rue wouldn't stop eating without being aware that she was over eating. Also as an actress, the struggle started to become bigger when she realized that being fat wasn't let you get you a certain part or a film role because of your weight.
But, not long after the actress turned thirty, she realized that she needed to step up her weight loss game. This time, Sara didn't want to wait until she was forty. Because she knew that waiting till she turned forty was only gonna make her wait till fifty. She had a particular vision to what she wanted to look like in her near future.
Besides, Rue was also concerned about her health knowing how obesity and overweight could cause the high risk of diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes. Not to mention, the celebrity also decided to lose weight not just for her physical but for her mental health too.
And it was a perfect timing! At the time when Rue began losing weight, she was soon going to become a bride to her husband, Kevin Price who she wed in 2011. The couple also shares two children including Talulah Rue Price, born in 2011 and Adelaide Rue Price who the couple adopted in November 2016. Rue was previously married to former husband, Mischa Livingstone.

Diets and Workouts Plan
In an interview, Sara Rue claims she didn't totally cut off eating her favorite snacks. She only managed to plan her diet by taking the right portion everyday. As her job requires her running time to time all the time, Rue managed to stay alert on the amount and times of food she was consuming.
Fun fact: After losing weight, Rue wore and posed in a bikini for a shoot for the first time ever.
The actress, however, highly focused on eating plant-based diete like most of the celebrities. She only consumed 1700 calorie per day and avoided protein after 7 in the evening. Besides, Rue also spent a lot of time in the gym where she spent hours on the treadmill and doing cardio. Other physical plans included hiking, jogging, spin classes and mostly by staying active. Impressively, in less than a year, Rue lost 50 Ibs.
After going through it all, Rue came to the knowledge that it's not about being skinny or looking certain way but being healthy and fit as one can possibly be. The actress wants anyone on the same journey to seek help if they sense something is going wrong.
And, last but not least, it's also always about hard work. Rue opposes the conception of how people think that celebrities have it easy when it comes to losing weight, but, when in reality, it takes them the same efforts as it takes anyone. True that.
