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.”

she’s getting to be about as annoying as ricki lake. i wonder if she’s realized that “this new girl” is being perceived as annoying and conceited?

Hmph. I think if I lost as much weight as she did, I would be talking about it a lot too. Kudos to her! I’d much rather read about something positive like this than more drivel about the Kardashians. YOU GO JENNIFER!!

If she can loose it and keep it off, go for it. My money is on Jennifer. Oh and by the way, gastric by pass is not the only way to loose weight. Yes the Weight Watchers, Jenny Graig and Nutri-System programs do help but getting it off and keeping it off takes dedication to work on a healthy life style. Even the surgries are not guarenteed if you don’t fix yourself along the way.


I love to hear that Jennifer is having fun “finding” herself in her “new” body. Haters, PLEASE find other pages to comment on. Nobody wants to read your jealous words. Weight-loss is only half the battle, keeping it off is just as difficult. I am betting that this little lady will keep up with the success.

Slow newsday? Seriously, how many articles can you write about her losing weight? She is skinny and looks great, we get it!

It’s fresh into a new year and she has recently come out with a book about her weight loss so I’d say that is why they are recycling her weight loss story.

With obesity and all the glorious diseases that are growing percentage wise to match our increasing waistlines guess we continue to need to see encouraging stories to get us motivated.

Reading “The China Study” and watching – Food Inc., Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, FORKS OVER KNIVES, and Vegucated are great motivators to enlighten us on why we are getting fatter and sicker.

Continue to be healthy Jennifer and to the editors of People Magazine looks like it is time to give someone else their 15 minutes on their healthy transformation.

“Isn’t Used to Dressing Skinny”…really? She is continously wearing form fitting clothes so how could she not be used to it.
I am happy she lost the weight but I am tired of hearing about it.
Get a new goal Jen!

She may not be used to dressing skinny, but she’s obviously used to talking about it. SHUT UP ALREADY. Find other interests…or your fans will.
