Jennifer Hudson told Oprah Winfrey she lost 80 pounds on Weight Watchers. Hudson said, ”It’s like a brand new me. Sometimes I don’t even recognize myself.” Hudson made the decision to lose the weight while she was pregnant with her now 2-year-old son.
She eventually went from a size 16 to a size 6. Hudson told Oprah she prepares all of her own food.She even allowed cameras to follow her to a gym where she played basketball with a cousin, jumped double-Dutch and ran on the treadmill. Dozens of Hudson’s family and friends joined her on her weight loss journey. The group lost a total of 1,935 pounds.
