Jennifer Hudson‘s drastic weight loss may no longer be breaking news, but the fashion plate says she’s constantly surprised by her slimmer figure.

“I just love fashion now,” she told Stylelist at the New York celebration for her recent Good Housekeeping cover on Tuesday. “It’s so much more flexible, and there are so many more options out there now. I feel like my own little Barbie doll — I get to dress myself up.” And with the lighter footprint also comes fancier footwork: “I hated heels before, but that’s all I wear now.”

And though everything looks good on her (just check out the three outfits she wore over the course of two days, above), her style philosophy is rather complex. “Because it’s a new body, I’m trying to find out, how do I want to be perceived?” she laments. “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.”

Honestly, you people dont have to be so negative. It is a big accomplishment…i know because I did it. Last January i weight 200lbs and was a size 15/17 depending on the Clothing and now i am a size 4. And you know what Jennifer Hudson inspired me to do something about my weight. I didnt use Weightwatcher or any of those diets, I just decided and I did it. People making comments that she will gain the wait again is rude. All formerly fat people fear they are going to gain back again….they are really scared. Stop being so negative…its either you are fat and can change so you are jealous or just a skinny person who has never been fat a day in your life. Sorry if it sounds harsh but the more stories they are about formerly fat people getting their weight down to what they consider good for them the better the society will be, even if it is the same old story.

Whoa…I’m one of those folks who speaks their opinion without reading all of the comments. But now that I did I agree with a comment about bypass surgery. I do believe you’re right on the money. And may I once again comment…I’m sick of her. Times up…go away!

After reading several of these comments, I am happy to see that I am not the only one who is annoyed by her. Every time a weight watchers commercial comes on, I change the channel. It sounds like she’s capitalizing off her one infamous role in the movie, “Dreamgirls” as well as her weight loss. Time to move on. Seriously though.

So THIS (weight) is all there is left to talk about regarding Ms. Hudson? Well, I suppose ANY type of press is better than NO press at all…

Love her!!
She looks stunning and I never get sick of hearing about great stories of triumph. So you b*thchers and moaners about how your sick of it, then dont read stories featuring her…duh. Regognize you’re really just full of self-hatred & go see a therapist. Fast!

How long has it been since she lost the weight? When will she get on with her life?

Hudson is appearing on shows to talk about her 80 pound weight loss, courtesy of Weight Watchers. She will need to spend a great deal of effort now maintaining the weight loss, since her body is not accustomed to being this small. It requires trememdous resolve on her part and I hope she can keep off the weight over the long haul.
