Jennifer Hudson Is New Spokeswoman For Weight Watchers

The gorgeous and talented singer and actress Jennifer Hudson gave birth to a baby boy last August, and she looks amazing. You may be surprised to hear that her secret is Weight Watchers, and today she has revealed that she's the newest spokeswoman for this popular weight-loss program. You can expect to see ads coming out featuring Jennifer on Sunday. The 28-year-old Oscar winner says,

"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. It’s a lifestyle change, not a diet."

Jennifer appreciates how the program easily adapts to her busy life, saying, "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." How tech-savvy of her!

This momma is no stranger to weight issues. When appearing as a contestant on American Idol, Jennifer was unfairly called "the big girl." And for her role as Effie in Dreamgirls, Hudson gained more than 20 pounds, then lost it before the premiere. By the looks of it, Jennifer seems to be loving her new healthier lifestyle, so hopefully Weight Watchers can help her stick with it.

Jennifer isn't the only celeb dropping pounds with this program. Both Tina Fey and Jenny McCarthy found success. Tell me, have you tried Weight Watchers, and if so, what did you think?

i have tried Weight Watchers a few years ago and lost 30 pounds! It worked, to a certain extent....after I gained it all back I realized that on Weight Watchers you can eat whatever you want as long as it fits into your "points"...including trigger foods. I think it's a great program, but in the long run it wasn't for me. Check out my healthy living blog to see how i'm doing things now. :)

Congrats to Jules1976 and mew01. So far I've lost 27 lbs with 3 more to go on WW. It is a program that works in real life.

So far I have lost 32 pounds with WW and I am seven pounds away from my goal weight. I weigh less than it says on my Driver's License!!! For me, it has been a lifestyle change that WW makes so easy, it is definitely something everyone could do. I have started making healthy diet decisions even at restaurants or with fast food, paying attention to portion size and now I have made exercise part of my routine almost everyday. WW builds in "cheat" points, so if I want to have a cupcake or ice cream, I can have it. I have never felt completely deprived. What happens is, when you don't have junk food on a regular basis, you savor it more those few times you indulge. I love WW, if you are even remotely toying with the idea, I would definitely encourage you to try it!!!

Congrats to her! I'm on WW, and I like it. It's a great program for anyone who needs help being accountable for their meals and munchies.
