Jennifer Hudson: New figure has me too excited to sleep

Jennifer Hudson's 80-pound weight loss has also resulted in quite a bit of sleep loss, but according to the Oscar-winning singer-actress, that's not necessarily a bad thing.

“At night I can't even sleep because I can't wait to see what I am going to wear the next day," Hudson told CNN at the Essence Black Women in Hollywood event Thursday.

The Weight Watchers spokesperson, who slimmed down from a size 16 to a size 4, added that her new figure has made getting glam for all those premieres and awards shows quite a breeze.

"It does make it a whole lot easier because now my fittings aren't that long," she explained. "The first thing I try on, I’m like, 'That's the dress. OK, let’s go.' And it’s that simple, and it's fun, and it looks good!"

    Proud of her Weight Loss (as it takes True Discipline), However, why in heavens did she Wear that 'Low Cut' Dress, with her poor Boops peeking out to the side (like deflated Balloons).. It was a TurnOff for how she 'looked' in the Dress (wasN'T 'classy') ..

    The reason I bloged on this subject because if say one thing about a white person the creepy Nazi's comment in droves. Then the superior whites all ways comment on your spelling and grammar and the fat and ugly whites pretend to be a black person. Well let me sum it up my fellow americans no matter how hard you try to divide this great country the good people of all ethnicity will win and stop each and everyone of you bigots. Nazi's can't stand a good story

    For the racist: the first person on earth was found in Africa she is the mother of all mankind. We all have descended from her and the majority of the world consists of people of color whites are like the albino of the human race so I understand why you are maaking scared racist comments because by nature and science the darker of the races has stronger DNA genetically and once all of the other races especially the black race has mixed with the white race there will no longer be a white race our genes are superior more melenin ! I love that God made me black & beautiful ! you are just scared of your race's EXTINCTION !

    Jennifer Hudson is a powerful role model for young women. If I had a young daughter, I would much rather she look up to Jennifer Hudson than Lady Gaga or Lindsey Lohan. I think it's great that she won an oscar after American Idol basically told her that she would never make it in the entertainment industry. She started out gorgeous with a great voice. She is still gorgeous with an amazing voice. She has made lifestyle changes taught to her by Weight Watchers (amazing program!!!) that improved her health with the amazing weight loss that accompanies this change in her lifestyle. Also, Jennifer has lived through the terrible tragedy of her mother and brother's murders. I think its deplorable that some of you would assume that she lost the weight because of illicit drug use. If you have some sort of indisputable
    evidence to support these claims I'm certain the tabloids would love to hear about it. Otherwise you have no reason to post these defamatory comments in this forum.
    Also, if you need to vent your frustration regarding the fact that you are still a racist in the 21st century, I'm quite certain there other websites that are more appropriate places for you to express these ideas that you have.
    Keep up the great work Jennifer!!!
    P.S. Please do not take offense to my comment regarding Lady Gaga (she dresses a lot more provocatively than I think is appropriate for young ladies) and as far as why I don't think Lindsey is a great role model-You don't need an explanation unless you have been living in a cave or under a rock for the last several years).

    People ! She had a lot more help then weight watchers. She is a fakeass. Initially with the weight made comments about being proud of her full figure then she turns around and sings about her weight loss. Let's check the scale in about 3 years I'm sure it will all be back.

    Race isn't a factor, but who cares about another celebrity that can be waited on by a staff from their endorsers so they lose weight. T he strorey line is old. I hope she stays healthy and doesn't yoyo like so many others. I am more impressed when a working mom juggles weight loss and everything else with little help.

      If your grandparents are from Spain, I guess that makes your family Spanish, not indigenous Mexicans (you know, a person whose ancestors were actually BORN there). Indigenous Mexicans (natives whose ancestors were BORN there) are called Mexican Indians.

    While it's awesome that Ms. Hudson is now slender, she has got to remember that she would never have won the awards for Dream Girls if she had been thin back then because she'd have never been cast in the film. I personally don't feel the great vibes for her anymore because she's nothing different from the rest of the Hollywood people. She's merely another cookie-cutter actress/singer.

    You people make me sick, my first point which is the subject of the article is that jennifer hudson is a beautiful woman wether or not she has the weight on her. My second point is that mexicans are officially categorized as a caucasian race, there are only 4 major races and one of which includes caucasian who consist of white and mexican this is because of the various desendents of europe including the original SPANISH people of Spain.

    YOU GO GIRL ! Like many others I have struggled with obesity. Last year my physician recommended I loose over 80 pounds. I dropped 20 but then due to stress picked up another 25. Anyone who can loose the weight and keep it off deserves respect. Look at my girl Oprahs troubles. It is tough.

    @ battergirl:

    I suggest you learn about weight watchers then, before you open your mouth, because that's what their program is all about. A lifestyle change of heath eating, portion control and exercise. It's not a gimmick, you're eating real food from the grocery store, not some over priced packaged garbage that tastes like dirt. I've lost 35 pounds and have kept it off for three years because they teach you to eat properly.

    And hell yes she has to be concerned with her looks. she's in entertainment. Look at the comments on this thread. Need more proof?

    To the racist and reverse racists: Shut up. Your schtick is getting old. YOU are helping to keep racism alive. The rest of us don't care what color you are. There are great people and complete schumcks in all colors.

    To Jennifer Hudson: you look great! Enjoy yourself.

    jennifer girl i feel you. i had to have gastric bypass. but no one knew how much i really weighed as im 5'10. im african american and hispanic mixed and i was a BIG girl. bigger than you ever were. people used to ask me if i was samioan. anyways, since my weight loss 8 years ago, im a size 8 and i still have friends that can't stop talking about how tiny i am now. im not a size 4 frame, but i am very small for my height. i have had 2 modeling offers as well. its amazing how america treats plus size people. i have men ask for my phone number all the time, you never get used to having clothes look so great, you never get used to folding your tiny clothes after you wash laundry. i still after all these years fold my clothes like whooa, those are mine? psychologically my dr said will never catch up as i had been obese my whole life. but jennifer you were and are seriously beautiful no matter what size. you are one of those who just looked good plus size. just like raven samone too. but she too has lost her weight but she is not happy with her weight loss. point being, you are gorgeous , im happy for you, ignore the stupid haters and just do you and what makes you happy.

    • Mike

      Sorry, but that's really not an accurate statement. Some Mexican people are defended from indigenous people, to greater and lessor degrees. Many are also defended from European colonizers. In fact, the word "Latin" in Latin America refers to exactly this racial connection, real or implied, between racially Latin people (from Spain) and the people living in Latin America. To say Mexican people are 100% indigenous is not accurate, nor is it accurate to say they are not Caucasian; you can't ignore the years of colonization, forced extermination, and enslavement of native peoples, and the resulting heterogeneity of Mexican (and Caribbean and Latin American) heritage. Mexican people, and all hispanic people, should be proud of their heritage, but we should never forget that this heritage is an inextricable mixed of colonizers and colonized people who are a unique creation of the histoio-social conditions that created the "Americas."
