American Idol alumni and Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson announced Thursday on Good Morning America that she will be the newest spokeswoman for Weight Watchers. Hudson gave birth to son David Jr. seven months ago and said she has taken off all the extra baby weight and more thanks to the weight-loss program.
“No one recognizes me anymore,” Jennifer Hudson said in her Good Morning America interview. “I wanted to go in a different direction and find a better lifestyle.” Hudson said she decided to join a weight-loss program after her son was born to get back into shape post-pregnancy. “I decided to do Weight Watchers,” Hudson said. “I feel like I’ve conquered the world.”
“I feel empowered with what I’ve learned â€“ everything from portion control to what foods will help keep me satisfied,” Hudson said. Now Hudson will be sharing her story of getting healthier as an official Weight Watchers spokeswoman, following on the heels of previous celebrities like Jenny McCarthy and Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson.
Although a much skinnier Jennifer Hudson is proud of her weight loss, she said she was “very comfortable with myself before” and has previously been vocal about loving her curvy body. Hudson said, however, that she has “a child now and I want to set a great example for him. Make better life choices, health choices, and just create a good example for him growing up.”
Bravo Jennifer, we love you curvy or skinny, as long as you are healthy, happy and keep on singing!
