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 agree that it’s amazing how far she has come, but also agree that it’s becoming a little tiresome constantly hearing about it. Between her weight watcher commercials coming on every commercial break and the news articles about, I think we get the point! And yes, I know I took the time to read the article anyway and comment about it!

She acts like this is a new concept. Is she going to be known for her voice or her weight loss? Get a life, Jennifer.

for you non-believers/haters, there was no gastric bypass here – her WW leader is my leader and she’s been to our meetings – going from heavy to thin is quite a mindset adjustment – I myself have lost 70 pounds, so I understand her struggles – I still perceive myself as the fat girl and this will take time – but I find Jennifer inspiring and she did it on her own with the help of WW to guide her – GOOD FOR HER!!!!

Wow so much negativity and bitterness in these comments. Sounds like envy to me. She has a lot to be proud of.

This girls needs to get over herself. Everyone else has. What does she do besides lose weight and talk about losing weight? Personally, I think (1) she’s still a thug, and (2) she needs to get rid of those saddle bags on her thighs.

I personally think she was prettier a big heavier. She has a big head and a little body now. Some people are just meant to have meat on their bones and I think she is one of them. It’s a shame that people who become stars think they have to fit into a mold of ultra skinny to be popular.

Who CARES. She isn’t the only one that has lost weight in this world. ENOUGH with the articles. MOVE ON…I have just lost 70lbs.

I’m over hearing about her weight loss. We get it, we know you lost weight. Good for you. People do it all the time. I wish they would stop putting her weight loss in the press and take her Weight Watchers commericals off the air.
