Jennifer Hudson Prouder of Weight Loss than Her Oscar


Hollywood singer and actress, Jennifer Hudson, who used to weigh 80 pounds more than she does now, says she is a lot prouder of her weight loss than her Oscar award.

The American Idol alumna also revealed that she did not know she was ‘plus-sized’ until she came to Hollywood to join American Idol.

As a matter of fact, when one journalist referred to her as “plus-sized” during an interview, the singer “looked around, like, ‘Who is she talking to? Oh, me? I’m plus-sized?’. In the neighborhood I’m from in Chicago, a (size) 16 is normal. But in Hollywood, everyone looks exactly the same, so I stood out.”

Hudson also admits she did not shed her baby weight through Weight Watchers alone.

“Four days after my cesarean section, I began walking 30 minutes every day. It was my therapy, my moment to myself, and it was all I could do. I figured, me walking is better than me sitting on the couch. Even if I can’t climb a mountain or do 100,000 push-ups, these steps matter, and they’re leading somewhere.”

Fast forward to the present, Hudson is 80 pounds lighter, looking tremendously gorgeous, and is on the cover of ‘Self’ magazine.
