Since she revealed her amazing body transformation in April, Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson has lost an additional 20 lbs. “I didn’t expect to go as far as I did!” the Weight Watchers spokesperson told PEOPLE in New York City, where she launched the Lose for Good campaign, which teaches families how to prepare healthy low-cost meals in an effort to help fight hunger and obesity. “People are like, ‘Okay Jennifer don’t lose anything else!’” Hudson, who marked her 29th birthday on Sept. 12, still hasn’t gotten used to seeing her slimmer reflection in the mirror. “I go into the store and they try to put me in 4s and 6s and I’m like [she looks over both shoulders] ‘Who are you trying to talk to?’” says the former size 16 star. “My mind hasn’t caught up yet.” But no matter what, “I’ve always been a person who’s comfortable with myself whether it’s plus-size, small size it doesn’t matter,” says Hudson. –Michelle Tan

Congratulations!! What a great inspiration she is for losing the non surgical, healthy way.
WW is really a great program and from MY experience, the best way to lose and maintain.. So glad she’s their new spokeswoman.

no matter what size she is it doesn’t matter? She’s comfortable? So why bother with the weight loss and you don’t lose another 20 and it’s all a big surprise.. Say what you really want to say which is “i didn’t like the way I looked and I never want to look like that again”

She looks fantastic and should be proud of herself. That’s a huge accomplishment and one of the toughest things to do.

If you were comfortable with yourself as a plus size then why all this over the top promotion of being thin and selling the image that thin is a better life style. JHud is full of it and I thought Africans like big girls. But the one she has only like big bank accounts since she is buying him.

Sigh….she looks beautiful now and she looked beautful before. I am sincerely happy for her, BUT, it makes people harder to relate to her now that she is ‘one of them’. It was nice to see a successful and beautiful plus size roll model, I feel like we lost a comrad to the other side. Regardless, she is healthy and beautiful. So good for her!

She looks amazing. I am so happy for her. I think she means that she felt comfortable being plus size but feels even better now because its healthier. Being plus size can bring a lot of health problems.

She says she’s comfortable with whatever size she is but everybody obviously knows that it’s not healthy to be overweight…I wouldn’t consider that over the top promotion.
She looks fantastic, good for her!
