One celebrity that’s been in all the gossip magazines recently is Jennifer Hudson because of her remarkable weight loss achievements. For those of you who don’t know what she’s been up to, Jennifer has lost 5 dress sizes, starting at a size 16 and dropping all the way down to size 6 (in US sizing), that’s about 60 pounds.
So how did Jennifer Hudson lose weight? The answer is simple than most people think. She says that she followed the basic Weight Watchers programme and went to the gym 5 times a week; needless to say after such an impressive weight loss, Jennifer Hudson is now Weight Watchers’ spokesperson. She strongly believes that the programme that Weight Watchers offer isn’t a strict diet, but more a way of life; she claims that before her weight loss she couldn’t have an ice cream as it would make her put on weight, but now she feels good about having one occasionally. However, after Jennifer Hudson’s weight loss, she now claims she doesn’t actually want to lose any more weight; she’s found her dream size.
What sparked Jennifer Hudson’s weight loss? After giving birth to her son David in August 2009, she found it the opportune moment to drop some of those pounds she’d been carrying around with her. Hudson was always the big girl on American Idol (the show that really made her famous) and then she was the big girl in Dream Girls (for which she did put on weight for) but has said that how she felt about her weight varied from day to day.
In a new exposé on Jennifer Hudson weight loss, she talks about how some days she felt fine with her weight, yet on others any comment anyone made about her weight really got to her.

An insider close to Jennifer states that she thought that if she could lose weight she could compete with some of the biggest music stars out there such as Beyoncé but this is unconfirmed. She has also been cast as Nelson Mandela’s wife in a new movie which could have served as good motivation.
