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.”

I know she lost the weight and I am happy for her. But it is much easier to lose the weight, when you have money to have a personal trainer and the total support of WW. But now it is getting to me, too much, of the me,me,me, please Jennifer take it easy on the self promotion.

I think she looks beautiful, but I thought she looked beautiful even when she first started on American Idol. I have never liked her personanlity though, and I am sick of her talking about her weight, but I understand that this is a huge accomplishment for her, and she is proud as she should be. However I wish she would talk about her next job, she is talented and should do more with that. So Good for her and I hope she keeps it up, but enough already!

Seriously when are women going to stop tearing each other down? Be happy for each other, we have enough to deal with without having other women rip us apart!! SHE LOOKS GREAT!!

It’s not like Jennifer is asking herself these questions. She is leading a healthier life and she should be proud of that – no way Weight Watchers would pay her as a spokesperson if she had gastric bypass. That’s fraud.

SO sick of hearing about her weight loss. She is seriously getting annoying.

Enough already–I wish she would shut up and those commercials sound like she is yelling.

Well I think Jennifer looks great! And for us yeah it may be media news that was hot for a second and is now boring…….but for her, her life has been completely changed and transformed. So yeah, she is probably going to be talking about it for a while. But can you blame her? There are worse scenarios that we could have to watch. Shouldn’t you be happy for her? Doesn’t she deserve this after all the tragedy that she has experienced in her family since becoming a celebrity? I was in the military for 4 years, maxed every PT test and a have been a trainer on and off for years, nutrition is something you can see if some one is getting and working out and being active and from her stances in these pictures look at her body she really does look genuinely fit.

Instead of Jennifer constantly going on and on about her weight loss let’s hear about her finally getting married her perpetual engagement to her baby’s daddy is old now too. You wonder why so many black women are never going to see a wedding ring because they set themselves up by having children for men and not setting the standards of a relationship by being serious about marriage. Jennifer has the money to get married versus a normal bride who has to wait for 2 years, but she needs to go ahead and get married. Seems like folks got time for other things, but no time to get married…..very sad.

She looks good, has the weird face thing going on a lot of people get when they lose a lot, but i wish she’d get a really decent BRA! I keep seeing her in plunging necklines with flat droopy boobs that need to be HIKED UP, she’d look a lot better!
