Jennifer Hudson: 'I Don't Want To Lose Any More Weight'

Jennifer Hudson has experienced a long list of firsts this past year, from having a baby and planning a wedding to tackling a meaty new role, but none have been quite as shocking as her total body transformation. After dropping from a size 16 to a 6, the fall cover girl tells InStyle Makeover that she sometimes has to do a double take when she sees herself in photos. “I’m like, ‘Wow! This is what I look like?'” says the new mom, who slimmed down with 5-day-a-week workouts with celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak and following Weight Watchers, which she is now the spokesperson for. “It’s not a diet, it’s really a way of living that teaches you better skills,” says Hudson, who admits to faltering on stricter eating plans. “For years I felt like I could never have ice cream, but I can eat ice cream occasionally now!” And with her sleek new look, the star has also developed an entirely different type of appetite—for clothes! “I have a serious shopping problem now,” Jennifer confesses. “Each city we go to, my suitcase won’t hold my new clothes so we have to box them up and ship them home.” And while change seems to be a constant for this multi-talented star, don’t expect her to drop another dress size. “I don’t want to lose any more weight, and you’re never going to see me skinny.” To hear more from Jennifer’s interview, check out or pick up the fall issue of InStyle Makeover, on newsstands Friday. —Jessie Goldberg

Honestly, I think she looked better as a size 16. This size does not suit her!

“I don’t want to lose any more weight, and you’re never going to see me skinny.”

While I am sure she did not mean it this way, I think she should have chosen her words more carefully. A size 6 IS skinny! Maybe not by “Hollywood” terms, but it is a healthy weight in REAL life! She looks great!!

I’m on Weight Watchers but not being paid to lose weight. She’s very fortunate to have a private chef and a personal trainer to help her lose the weight.

Is that her signature pose or did someone mess around with photoshop between the cover photo and article photo?

The way she talks in those Weight Watcher commercials is so annoying. She gives these wierd pauses between words and only talks about how good she looks, never including how good and healthy she feels now.
