The secret behind Jennifer Hudson‘s amazing body after baby? Weight Watchers! In fact, the new mom revealed she’s the new spokesperson for the company today. “With Weight Watchers, I am enjoying the weight loss because I’m doing it the right way–I feel empowered with what I’ve learned, everything from portion control to what foods will help keep me satisfied,” says the 28-year-old. “It’s a lifestyle change, not a diet.” The Oscar-winning actress-singer, who has a 7-month-old son, David Daniel Otunga Jr., with her fiancé David Otunga, 28–also likes how the diet fits into her busy lifestyle. “I can follow the plan no matter where I am, still enjoy my favorite foods and even use the iPhone app to track my points,” she says. Hudson is no stranger to publicly discussing her weight: After being called “the big girl” as a contestant on American Idol, the singer transformed her body for her Oscar-winning turn as Effie in Dreamgirls by packing on more than 20 lbs. with a diet of “cakes and cookies and lots of fried food,” she told PEOPLE. She later lost the weight for the premiere of the film. Celebrities who have represented Weight Watchers in the past include Jenny McCarthy, Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, and Lynn Redgrave.–Michelle Tan

I’ve joined WW a year ago and lost 50 lbs so far. I have 50 more to go.

WW requires a great deal of patience, commitment, and self-discipline for it to work. Just because a celebrity represents a weight loss program doesn’t mean it’s a quick fix.

If you’re a fan of Jennifer Hudson and want to join the program be prepared to do some hard work and radically change your lifestyle. Are you committed enough to do that?

I commend her on joining and representing the program and serving as an inspiration to people struggling with weight control.

I have to say, it CAN all be Weight Watchers. It is an amazing program that allows you to continue to eat the things you like and live life.
I have lost 215 lbs with WW and feel better than ever. Good for jennifer for taking control of her health.
