Jennifer Hudson’s 88 pound weight loss has inspired quite a few people (including myself) to shed a few pounds.
The 29 year old diva dropped the weight while spokesperson of Weight Watchers, although rumors continue to swirl that she had a surgical procedure to assist in her efforts.
Hudson recently spoke with Britain’s Daily Mail, where she reveals how her new size 6 physique changed her view of the world.
According to Jenn, slimming down has given her a new outlook on life and she has the attitude to prove it!
Jenn’s interview + photos from her new shoot below…
Jennifer admits losing weight has brought way opportunities her way that she would have never imagined. She says she was doing well before but she’s doing even better now.
When asked if she agreed that the odds are against plus-size women in the entertainment industry, Jenn explained:
‘No, because I was doing OK before,’ Jennifer says.
‘But the truth is, so many more opportunities open up when you’re on the other side, as I am now. I’d no idea what I was missing out on. It’s like a whole other world. Suddenly every designer wants to dress you. It’s like, “You look amazing! Please, choose a dress. Have a bag. And what about shoes?” I mean, wow!’
Is all the flattery, not to mention the freebies, hard to resist? She gives an emphatic shake of the head. ‘My look is led by what I feel good in. If I’m not comfortable in something, I won’t wear it – no matter whose name is on the label.’
Having faced tragedies that could have understandably shattered her world, Jenn’s Christian faith has given her strength and a determination to make her late mother proud.
In the notes of her recently released second album, I Remember Me, she writes of her son David Jr, ‘You saved my life!’ Yet she professes not to be exceptional in any way.
‘I’ve never heard the word “inspiration” as often as I have this past year. I get stopped in the street, in airports, everywhere, by people saying, “You’re my inspiration,” and I don’t begin to know how to respond.
What did I do to deserve it and what do I say? Like with the weight loss… I’d no idea so many people were watching me or that they cared.’
Yes Jenn… they care. Trust.
We’ve discussed it HERE before but being that she’s admitted to being an inspiration to many, I’ll ask again.
