Jennifer Hudson appeared on Good Morning America this morning looking amazingly svelte and really, really happy. The Oscar winning singer and new mom announced that she has become the new spokesperson for “Weight Watchers.” She said that after the birth of her son, David, 7 months, she wanted to “get healthy” and “make better life choices” for herself and her son. While Hudson didn’t reveal the amount of weight she has lost, she did say that she walks daily, eats better and uses the Weight Watchers’ iPhone app to keep track of what she eats. Go, Jennifer!
The secret behind Jennifer Hudson’s amazing body after baby? Weight Watchers! In fact, the new mom revealed she’s the new spokesperson for the company today. “With Weight Watchers I am enjoying the weight loss because I’m doing it the right way—I feel empowered with what I’ve learned, everything from portion control to what foods will help keep me satisfied,” says the 28-year-old singer-actress. “It’s a lifestyle change, not a diet.” The Oscar-winning actress—who has a 7-month son, David Daniel Otunga Jr., with her fiancé David Otunga, 28—also likes how the diet fits into her busy lifestyle. “I can follow the plan no matter where I am, still enjoy my favorite foods and even use the iPhone app to track my points,” she says. Hudson is no stranger to publicly discussing her weight: After being called “the big girl” as a contestant on American Idol, the singer transformed her body for her Oscar winning turn as Effie in Dreamgirls by packing on more than 20 lbs. with a diet of “cakes and cookies and lots of friend food,” she told PEOPLE. She later lost the weight for the premiere of the film. Past celebrities who have represented Weight Watcher in the past include Jenny McCarthy, Duchess of York Sarah Feruson and Lynn Redgrave.
It was nice to see Jennifer looking and feeling great after the tough personal ordeal she’s been through in recent years. Out of all the weight loss plans out there, Weight Watchers seems like the one with the most success, because rather than making people buy special food, it teaches you how to eat sensibly in the real world using portion control. Most of us can’t afford to buy all that special food, and once you stop using the plan and eating regular food, it’s easy to put the weight back on.
Jennifer is currently preparing to play Winnie Mandela in a new biopic about the controversial wife of Nelson Mandela.
go jenny, go jenny
WOW! she’s always been beautiful – now she looks amazing!
I saw a bit of her Christmas special a few months ago and she looked good, she’s looking great now!
After everything she and her family have been through, I’m always glad to see her happy.
She’s a fantasic artist-just love her voice. What a cute baby!
She’s looking really gorgeous.
Smart move Jennifer–now she’s going to get the entire female demographic since WW is so popular.
I love WW and I love Jennifer! She is so gorgeous! And she’s thinner now after baby then she ever was before…dear God I hope that happens to me too someday, lol
Look at her!! So beautiful!! That woman is a definite role model for young women!
She looks amazing!!! David Jr. is a cutie pie.
I love u. I love u. I love u. It is well with u.
She looks amazing. Good for her! I’ve always rooted for her to suceed. Looks like she’s doing just fine 🙂
She is fantastic.
She looks fantastic! And that baby is ADORABLE I just wanna pinch his widdle cheeks.
I’m very happy for her. 🙂
Miss Hudson, will you please have a heart-to-heart with Gabby? Only so that she eats healthy?
I really haven’t followed her career much, but WOW, she looks absolutely stunning. “Better life choices” is always a good thing. Good for her!
Nothing like making healthy life changes for yourself and nobody else! That’s the point that people don’t get. When YOU’RE ready, you WILL make changes.
@Sumodo yes. this.
I heart Jennifer Hudson.. and she looks great. And not just because she lost weight, but because she looks HAPPY. and HEALTHY. She is so incredibly talented
She looks fantastic! Good luck to her with everything.
my friend lost 6stones in a year with ww. jen looks great, baby is too cute..
@Sumodo1 – How do you know that Gaby doesn’t eat healthy?
I think it’s great she lost the weight and is healthier,esp now that she’s a mom. However, I doubt she wasn’t working out like a crazy person either. Weight Watchers does work,but lbs only keep coming off with exercise and the WW. BUt I do commend WW for teaching how to eat sensibly.
She is absolutely gorgeous.
@Gatsby — because of comments she has made on talk shows.
For the record: I am a lifetime fatty.
You cannot deny that we look better when we are in, or close to, a healthy weight range. It is just a fact.
I applaud her losing the weight for the right reasons. I had a daughter and I quit smoking and she and I go to the YMCA a few times every week (wish I could say everyday but that would be a lie) and I am trying to teach her to live a healthy lifestyle. She has a step sister that is bigger than I am and shes only 11 so she is sadly going to have to battle her genetics her whole life.
Bravo Ms. Hudson!!
She’s wearing a corset and a colbert that makes her look skinnier than she actually is. Her hips won’t get much thinner. She looked good before.
she looks absolutely STUNNING! this is awesome 🙂 i lovvveee her and this means she is now a candidate for a much greater variety of acting roles 🙂 she is so talented, strong, and beautiful i just love her!
I’m a fan who certainly applauds her efforts. She looks great but just how long will she be able to maintain the weight loss. Initially, many people succeed then backslide and gain the weight back, especially if being slender is not part of their genetic makeup. Frankly, Jennifer looks as if she’s been working out quite a bit. Walking alone is not going to make her look that well proportioned. Of course, being a Weight Watcher’s spokesperson is a great way to supplement her income and if she wants to keep the money rolling in, she’ll have to maintain her figure.
Jennifer looks great and her son is so cute.
wow, she looks pretty good…
why should she have a heart to heart with “Gaby”. They probably don’t know eachother from a hole in the while… I mean, aside from being African American, I don’t see why they should be best buds at this point…
One of the few things I really hate is unsolicited advice. Every and all kinds of it. Even if it’s “hey, if you move your money from account A to account B, you’ll make a million dollars.” It’s like, mind your effing business ya know?
@ #30 ITA. Thanks for saying what i was thinking lol
I noticed a few months ago that she was getting slimmer. Didn’t know it was with WW though. Good for Jennifer. Now she’ll be able to take advantage of her acting talent and get more and better roles. Congrats to her.
