American Idol runner-upÂ Jennifer Hudson has been working hard for her amazing post-baby body and she couldn’t have done it without the help of Weight Watchers. In fact, she’s so enthusiastic about the program’s success that she recently announced she’ll be working as their new spokesperson. The 28-year old new mom followed the points-based weight loss program to drop extra pounds from her pregnancy and has learned some valuable lessons.Â â€œWith Weight Watchers, I am enjoying the weight loss because Iâ€™m doing it the right wayâ€“I feel empowered with what Iâ€™ve learned, everything from portion control to what foods will help keep me satisfied,â€ theÂ American Idol alum says. “Itâ€™s a lifestyle change, not a diet.â€
As a new mom, an Academy Award-winning actress, a singing superstar, and woman planning her wedding (to fiance, David Otunga),Â Jennifer Hudson‘s lifestyle is anything but slow-paced. Another thing she loves about Weight Watchers is how the program fits into her hectic lifestyle.Â â€œI can follow the plan no matter where I am, still enjoy my favorite foods and even use the iPhone app to track my points,â€ she says.
TheÂ American Idol runner-up joins a long line of celebrities who have served as Weight Watchers spokespeople which includes comedian and actress Jenny McCarthy, Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, and actress Lynn Redgrave.
