Jennifer Hudson Joins Weight Watchers

What Was Your Inspiration to Lose the Baby Weight?

The battle of the baby weight is one the celebrities tend to fight on the cover of magazines and the rest of us are lucky enough to handle in the privacy of our own homes. While some women are lucky enough to shed the pounds without much work, most of us have to put some effort into losing it. Finding the inspiration to do so can come from something as simple as a favorite pair of prepregnancy pants to an upcoming event.

For new mom Jennifer Hudson, the inspiration came from her son. When announcing her new role as a spokeswoman for Weight Watchers, Hudson said:

How can I make a better me, or grow or do some changes, anything, just experiment, because I have me back now. And then at the same time, having the baby . . . it's like, OK, this is a good way of how I would want my child to grow up, because so many times in growing up, you gain really bad habits . . . so I want to make sure that he's going into this and I'm being a good example for him.

What inspired you to lose your pregnancy pounds?

Agree with you bellafranki on both points. Jennifer Hudson looks awesome and all I wanted was to have my clothes fit again!

My inspiration was my job. I worked as an EMT before I got pregnant, then moved to the dispatch center. Dispatchers sit for 12 hours a day, which can lead to a condition known as "Dispatch Butt," otherwise known as obesity. When I came back from maternity leave, I started walking to and from work. Then I bought a bicycle, and even though my little one is three years old and I'm at my pre-pregnancy weight, I still bike commute most days.

I just had to comment on how awesome Jennifer Hudson looks. I hadn't seen a recent picture of her until now, and wow! She looks amazing! I really had no inspiration....my inspiration was that my pre-pregnancy jeans still didn't zip up! That was what got me moving.
