Three years after she first donned the itsy-bitsy green bikini on a cover of PEOPLE, Valerie Bertinelli is ready to break it out again.

“The green bikini is in my drawer just waiting for me to put it back on,” the Hot in Cleveland star, 52, said at Thursday’s American Heart Association’s Wall Street Run & Heart Walk in New York. “When these 5 lbs. come off, then I will put that back on.”

“It’s like the 5 lbs. that creeps on and then you have to take it back off, creeps on and take it back off,” she said, “and I think that a lot of people go through that before the summer.”
