Cosby Mom Phylicia Rashad loses 35 pounds

Check out the new Phylicia Rashad. After 8 months as Jenny Craig spokesperson, she has lost 35 pounds and met her weight loss goal. Each week, Phylicia, 61, met with a consultant about her program, based on 1,200 calories a day and 30-45 minutes of activity up to four times a week, including a variety of floor exercises, light strength training and the use of a recumbent bike.

"The most rewarding thing about reaching my goal weight is that I feel so much lighter," she says in a statement. "There's just an overall sense of well-being. And there's the increased energy as well, too. It's nice to have people say you look nice."

The Cosby Show actress will reveal her new figure (no word on whether that means still be sporting a bikini, a la Valerie Bertinelli) -- in a commercial set to debut Saturday.
