Jennifer Hudson Diet and Exercise Routine

Jennifer Hudson's Inspiring Weight-Loss Journey

Happy birthday, Jennifer Hudson! The Oscar-winning actress, singer, and mom turns 33 today. We love Jennifer for inspiring others with her weight-loss success — the former Weight Watchers spokesperson lost 80 pounds after having her son back in 2009. Take a look back at how Jennifer made her fit commitment.

A lifestyle: Jennifer's weight-loss journey started with her decision to lose weight after her pregnancy. But instead of resorting to dangerous crash dieting, Jennifer lost weight the sensible way: through portion control and exercise, as part of her participation in Weight Watchers. "It's a lifestyle change, not a diet," she said after becoming a Weight Watchers spokesperson in 2010. She ended her partnership with Weight Watchers in 2014, but said in 2012 that she had reached her goal weight.

Happiness fulfilled: While Jennifer is obviously proud of her weight loss, she knows that it's not all about the number on the scale or dress tag. Jennifer has always been vocal about being comfortable in her own skin, no matter what her size. "I liked who I was then and I like who I am now," she told Ellen about how she felt after going from a size 16 to 6.

Sweat for success: Jennifer has trained with Harley Pasternak, who whips his celebrity clients into shape with time-saving workouts, including his 25-minute 5 Factor workout (try one of Harley's favorite 25-minute workouts here). Jennifer's all about keeping her workouts intense and fun; in fact, she loves playing a game of basketball as her exercise. "I love basketball. It's fun, you don't even realize you're working out. [You] just keep that metabolism going and just keep that energy up. That's that cardio — you're getting it in and you don't even realize it," she told Oprah.
