May 21, 2010 08:00 AM by Nancy Floyd


When American Idol runner-up Jennifer Hudson learned that she’d need to drop pounds for a new movie role, the singer didn’t think twice about it. Working out with a trainer and counting calories through Weight Watchers’ points system, the once size-16 singer is now down to a size 6! Keep reading for more details on her amazing weight loss and body transformation…

American Idol runner-up Jennifer Hudson has always been known for her beautiful curves, but the singer recently dropped major weight to play a role in an upcoming movie. After giving birth to her son, David, last August, Hudson learned she’d need to drop the baby weight quick for her new character, but that was no problem to her. ”Whatever it takes to morph into a character I’ll do it,” she says.

The American Idol finalist began working on her weight loss goals in a healthy, responsible way. She recruited the help of trainer, Harley Pasternak, and began utilizing Weight Watchers’ points system to help her keep track of her eating. Not only did she drop from a size 16 to a size 6, Jennifer Hudson was also named the new spokesperson for the weight loss company. Now she tells PEOPLE magazine, ”I’m in the best shape of my life!”

Now that her weight loss is complete, Jennifer Hudson will be shooting her new film on location in South America, but a foreign country won’t get her off track from eating right. Her Weight Watchers counselor, Liz Josefsberg, tells the magazine, ”She will need to investigate every new product on this new continent. I am not the least bit worried about Jennifer… She is an amazing and resilient personality who will be just fine in her surroundings.”

    Good for Jennifer…..hopefully though she can maintain it. That was my problem when I was a lifetime member on Weight Watchers. Maintaining it is very difficult especially on the points system. Their old system of marking off the foods you ate each day was much better. I found myself eating the right kinds of food and the right amount. This new system has many many flaws! All the best Jennifer.
