Jennifer Hudson Lost 80 Pounds

Jennifer Hudson Lost 80 Pounds, For Jennifer Hudson, weight loss is the gift that keeps on giving. In fact, the 30-year-old singer, actress, and Weight Watchers spokesperson lost 80 pounds after the birth of her son in 2009, but over two years later, she is still adjusting to life as a smaller woman.

Hudson, whose svelte self graces the latest Good Housekeeping magazine cover, is making the rounds on her book tour for her weight loss memoir, I Got This. According to Just Jared, the star’s Good Housekeepingcover look features Hudson in a sleek tangerine bandage dress, showing off those enviable curves. She also wears her hair long, with some wave and plenty of volume, and a touch of coral-colored lipstick. (Want a similar lip look?

Her weight struggles went on nearly all her life before she got to her current size. At 19, according to Access Atlanta, Hudson’s weight soared to 256 pounds. She slimmed down in 2005, getting to a size 10, but then was asked to gain 20 pounds to play the role of Effie in Dreamgirls. Then weight loss and body image issues slapped Jennifer Hudson in the face again: In 2008, her record label photoshopped an image of her on her first album cover so she looked much thinner.

Though happier in her healthier body, the star admits her changes in size have caused something of an identity crisis. She explained in Cinema Blend:”Because it’s a new body, I’m trying to find out, how do I want to be perceived? Who is this new me? I knew how to be the big girl, but now I have to find out how to be this girl.”
