Jennifer Hudson to Oprah: I've lost 80 pounds

On Thursday, singer Jennifer Hudson was absolutely bursting to tell Oprah Winfrey and her studio audience how much weight she has lost on Weight Watchers.

Her Weight Watchers leader Liz, however, was less enthusiastic. It seems she didn't want people to get caught up on the number of pounds as much as the need to change bad habits.

But after some discussion – and Hudson bouncing in her seat and saying "I want to tell it!" – she revealed the magic number.

"I've lost 80 pounds," she told Winfrey before the talk show host and some members of the audience gave her a standing ovation.

Resplendent in a gray dress and heels, Hudson told Winfrey she is still adjusting to her new body.

"It's like a brand new me," she said. "Sometimes I don't even recognize myself."

Hudson said she made the decision to lose the weight while she was pregnant with her now 2-year-old son, and she eventually went from a size 16 to a size 6.

The singer, who told Winfrey that she prepares all of her own food, allowed the show's cameras to follow her to a gym where she played basketball with a cousin, jumped double dutch and ran on the treadmill as part of her workout.

Dozens of Hudson's family and friends in Chicago, Indiana and Mississippi joined her on her weight loss journey, and Winfrey revealed that collectively the group had lost 1,935 pounds.

Hudson also spoke tearfully a bit about the tragedy that occurred more than two years ago when her mother, brother and young nephew were murdered. She said she was able to survive that loss with the help of "my family, my baby and God."

"The only thing I can do to honor their memory is to make them proud," Hudson said.

More tears flowed when Winfrey brought out fashion guru Tim Gunn to give three of Hudson's cousins who have also lost weight on Weight Watchers a makeover. (Gunn is a fashion consultant for the weight loss organization.)

And since it wouldn't be an "Oprah" show without a free giveaway, Winfrey announced that every audience member would receive three, free one-year memberships to Weight Watchers - one for the audience member and two for friends of their choice.

Hudson also performed her new single, "Where You At," from her forthcoming album.

    I cannot help it, but this commercial is back and I'm again losing weight by running for the remote so indeed Jhud has the POWER to make me lose weight. First off, this girl never came off right to me, even from AI I could not stand that huge and annoying voice. She won the Academy Award on a fluke because hollywood wanted to give those loser producers and directors big claims to Movie-tizing (new word) Dream Girls. As a result, this is a very unattractive girl that went all the way to Hollywood to be a Baby Mama. I do not like her, her singing, acting or disposition. Nough said, okay?

  19. Enough

    Enough with the insults to overweight people. Do you honestly think anyone in this country really wants to live with the shame that comes with being overweight? Say what you want, but empirical evidence (and common sense) shows that there are genetic, medical, and psychological issues at work which make it extremely difficult for people to lose the weight they want to lose. Yes, of course many people are able to work their a** off and overcome these obstacles, but it's one hell of a battle. Of course everyone knows eating healthier and exercising is the way to lose weight. It's too easy for the genetically blessed to throw that un-empathetic "advice" out there while sticking their noses up in the air. Show a little compassion, my god...

    A couple generations ago there were a lot less morbidly obese people. It just makes me laugh when they talk about "fat genes" or someone says they're fat because it's genetic. Wake up, people- American genes did not mutate that fast, the obesity epidemic is caused by lazy people eating too much of the wrong foods and that's why we are the fattest people on the planet! I just want to slap the "I've tried everything and I just can't lose weight" people. While it is true people have different matabolisms and do not lose at the same rate, a proper sensible low calorie healthy diet and exercise program will produce weight loss IF ADHERED TO. My fat cousin will tell you Weight Watchers did not work for him. He is right, he was on it for a whole ten days, cheated with junk food snacks and did not exercise. Yeah, right, it didn't work- DUH! He will tell you nothing worked, but he has never actually tried cutting calories, eating healthy and getting daily exercise. Yeah, his whole family is obese, they all eat crap and sit on the couch. Gaining weight is easy, losing it is hard work, but you have to get up off your fat lazy ass to do it. For it to stick, you have to educate yourself and make changes for the rest of your life.

    Oprah makes me sick. Remember when she came out in painted on jeans with her wheelbarrow of blubber she lost (on a liquid diet and what did that cost) and pretended to be an "expert" on weight loss? Her wieght loss books (OK, so someone else really wrote them and she put her name on them for money) like, maybe she should have read some of them??? Yeah, you see how that worked out for her, the queen of yo yo dieting. The worst part is so many people think Oprah is so great and now she has basically said she "accepts" how fat she is (so they do too) like that is healthy? If I had a dollar for every pound Oprah has lost and regained, I'd be richer than Oprah!

      I do not like her singing at all, but it does not mean she is bad, just that she in not my cup of tea. I do applaud her weight loss w/o surgery and hope she inspires others to do the same. Nobody is born morbidly obese, we make ourselves that way by how we live our lives. There are twice as many obese ppl as there were 30 years ago- that is not genes or some mystery disease or anything else, it is just a poor diet and lifesyle.

      I can't stand Oprah either- I think that big lump on the back of her head is her ego LOL.

  28. The Average US Woman's Clothes Size is 12 & 14

    To poster Jennifer who said,that a size 12 in miss size clothing,is entirely fat unless you are Very Tall, is totally ignorant and untrue! I'm 5'4 and a half,and I wear a size 12,but I only look somewhat overweight for my height! My face is thin,and I don't have what fat obese people have,a big fat noticable stomach,or big fat arms,legs or backside. The average height of American women is 5'3 and half and the average weight is 162.

    I had been thin all of my life until at the age of 34 I was overweight and had to go on a diet for the first time in my life. Before that I did no dieting at all,ate a lot of cookies,cake,etc (I always also ate fruits and vegtables too it's just that back then I could eat all of the other fattening things,do no excercise at all not even walking,and dranl sugar soda,ate regular bread,ate regular mayonnaise and could put it on my sandwiches thick,and as many regular potatoe chips as I wanted,and was still looking thin,at a size 8.

    Now,I only eat 2 low-fat low-calorie meals a day,only drink diet drinks,and eat low-fat mayonnaise,diet bread,low-fat or fat free salad dressings,and use cooking sray not oil.I rarely eat any meat either,it's just usually only one boneless skinless chicken breast. I don't do much exercise though,I take long walks only sometimes.I lost about 20 pounds and 2 pant sizes 8 years ago,by only eating 2 low-fat low-calorie meals a day,only drinking diet drinks and only rarely cheating after 5 months without cheating,and I took long walks 4 times a week,and I did this for over a year,but all I could get down to was a size 12,I couldn't even get to a 10 and I weighed 143-145 because it goes up and down.I have gained some of my weight back,but not as much as I had when I went on the diet for the first time.

    I see and meet so many young women in their late teens and early 20's who are obese,with real big fat stomachs,chubby faces,and big fat arms and legs,and I should have been this way when I was thin and eating almost anything I wanted with no excercise at all,and I'm really glad I'm not big and fat now! My internist and an endocrinologist said to me,that my metabolism slowed down,and that most people's does as they get older.My internist said,she can't tell me how many countless patients she's had who were thin when they were younger,and now they are overweight.

    • The Average US Woman's Clothing Size Is 12 & 14

      I just noticed I made a few typing mistakes. I also want to mention that out of the many young obese women I have met, 2 of them were working in Walmart as a portrait photographers,and one was only 21 and the other was only 23,and they both had pretty faces,but the had big fat stomachs,arms and legs and their faces were kind of chubby too. There was a 19 year old manager of a CVS store who was really fat,and others like them I've met.

      My mother was also thin all during her 20's,and she became very overweight starting into her mid late 30's all through her 40's. I asked my father if she ate a lot,and he said she didn't eat a lot.And I never saw her eat big breakfasts or dinners either.But she was more weight than me and was 2 and half inches shorter at only 52.

    BFD! I'll say it again. BFD! If she really wants to make an impression, do something good for someone. She's sitting on a pile of cash, make a mark that way by doing something good with it. Going on that diet plan cost her $0... everything was given to her for her endorsement. The fact that she had to go on the over-rated oprah show to say what she did only proves she's crying out for attention. I don't care if she's 10 pounds or 1000, the fact that she lost weigh does not impress. Maybe she'll loose enough weight to completely disappear.

    I that her getting that weight off is a great thing. And just because she said she was happy in her body before, doesn't mean she decided she wasn't, and that is why she opted to do WW. I gained a ton of weight with my daughter, even though I was active throughout my pregnancy. And yes, I am a bit chunky, but I eat healthy and live an active lifestyle. I don't have a workout routine in place, but I have a desire to loose weight. Not because I don't love my body, but because it is so hard to find clothes that fit! And because I have a desire to be physically fit like I used to be before baby/c-section which has made it hard to get rid of this extra few inches of fat. All in all it is (for me) a matter of being healthy and being able to find properly fitting clothes, and maybe that is/was Hudson's motivation....

    Congratulations Jennifer :) I wish you well amongst all the hatred as there are faceless "ignorites" who will always go against what they have never been taught. Love :) Out of all the bad things, continue to shine and take any negative energy that crosses your path and use it in a positive manner. Governments and the higher powers of this world promotes anarchy, hatred and anger so we as a people will be easier to control and persuade. Just do you, be well and have positive thought in every manner of your life. The best example in life is to be yourself and not bow to what people think of you :)

    There are few people who know the higher power in truth and positivity. Search for it and let it become you.

    Always,

    Hey you jealous negative folks that are spewing your venom:
    I lost 120 lbs and was late 50's when I did it too. I do not have hanging skin because I also took up riding horses vigorously almost every day and I'm so strong and feel wonderful too.
    I am a size 2 and it fits my small frame too so stop judging someones size because some of us have narrow hips, small waist etc. I do have a nice body now and am healthier than ever.
    It was 8 yrs ago that I lost this weight and I've kept every bit of it off and continue to live a vibrant, active life working with my 3 horses. Just find your passion that's going to give you muscle strength, isometric exercise and stretching too, but most important of all don't do something that bores you, get active and incorporate something into your life that you love and you'll be happy, positive and loving life and everyone in it because you then wish the very best for everyone else too :-)

    The problem with Weight Watchers is that they promote weight loss but not healthy eating. Any weight loss regime that encourages people to drink diet soda, refrain from fruits, and use sucralose as an artificial sweetener is far and away an unhealthy weight loss program.

      You obviously don't know what you are talking about. WW doesn't encourage members to drink diet soda, although it is just another option. As for fruit, the newest version actually encourages eating fresh fruit. And the program also encourages eating lots of veggies, whole grains, etc.

      I don't know what program you are talking about because it definitely is NOT Weight Watchers. They do encourage a healthy lifestyle that includes fruit. They certainly do not encourage diet soda. They do encourage at least six glasses of water a day. After all it is the person's decision as to what they eat and drink. It's called taking responsibility.

    Weight Watchers is a sensible and healthy way to change your eating habits for ever. I can see why the organization would balk at JH going on about how many pounds she's lost, since that is not the emphasis of the diet program. And since WW is paying JH big bucks to represent them, she should play the game as dictated. She does look fabulous now. Given how much weight she's lost, and how little extra (saggy) skin is evident on her frame, I'd guess that she's had some tucking surgery as well.

    You know one of the reasons why I really kind of resented seeing her on all of those Weight Watchers commercials was because of my belief that while a "normal" person can just about afford $14 per week to go a Weight Watchers meeting, she probably had her own chef and personal trainer...so of course she lost 80 pounds.

    Bill,
    You don't have to be insulting. People who are overweight know they are overweight and there is no need to call them fat.
    Look people, unless you have a medical reason for being overweight such as a thyroid issue or a cortisol issue, then learn that eating the "american" i.e. western diet is going to decrease your fiber intake, increase your insuline response, increase your fat intake and will decrease your vitamin and mineral intake, which leads to half of all americans being overweight to obese. It's no fun being fat, but lets face it, most of us put ourselves there and then feel sorry for ourselves because of the weight we've gained. Getting defensive doesn't fix the problem. Action however does.
    It's simple and you don't need bariatric sugery to fix this. There is no quick fix to permanent weight loss. Diets do not work. Permanent weight loss is done by eating as natural as possible and getting excercise daily. Fruits and vegetables have bright colors and fuel your body. Most fried foods are beige and have nothing for you but more pounds around the middle. No more soda, no more junk food or fast food as it's just bad for you. Whole grains, whole wheat, fruits, vegetables, milk, yogourt, water instead of soda, meats which are not processed, increase your fiber intake, no fried foods and olive or canola oil to your salad dressings (home made of course) and get off the couch and go for a walk and get some excercise each day. Don't smoke and give it 8 weeks of this and your energy level will be higher and suprise, surprise you will lose weight. You didn't put it on in one day so it's not going to come off in one day.
    You can cut down what I say by saying it's none of my business if you're overweight and you would be right. But if what you are doing isn't working for you, why not give it a try??? What have you got to lose??

      Laurab68,

      To some extent I agree with you, but i would point out that metabolism plays a large part in it, as does the access to activity. Some body types are naturally heavier. My heritage is German-Irish and I am heavier set. I was also on steroids for a medical condition during my teen years that stunted my growth. If I work out constantly (as in when I had a 60+ hour a week job that required physical activity) I can maintain an "average" weight, but normally I am considered overweight. I have a friend that never works out, usually sits at home eats all day and has never weighed more than 100 pounds.
      There have been numerous studies that show that activity is possibly the largest contributor to weight problems. Two of the largest trouble spots are inner cities and rural areas. It has been shown that in general Southern food is no more unhealthy than other regions. Like many skewings, the fried food gets sensationalized by TV and people outside of the South, but the diet is fairly varied. The problem is access to resources. Most places in the south you have to drive to get things. In the inner cities, you could walk but in high crime neighborhoods where it's not safe you see the same pattern of obesity rates as in other areas where things are spaced our too far or just not easily available.
      Finally there is the issue of body image. We use the BMI to judge obesity, not taking into account that it is a linear approximation of something that scales by a power law. The range of accuracy contained as relatively narrow range of height and bone structures. If you are very tall or very short, it gets ridiculous. Our concept of healthy weight is skewed too, mostly by various media constantly parading people who have been hand-picked for certain features, made to workout for several hours a day and then photoshopped after all of that.

I think it's awesome she took her life into her own hands and lost a ton of weight and got healthy. She very publicly went through hell after that tragedy in her family; I can't even imagine how horrible that was, and I love how she is honest in how she was and is able to deal with it without falling apart and ending up in rehab like half of Hollywood. She's a decent singer, not my favorite, but she's got guts man, not many people could have endured what she went through and come out OK on the other side.
