Jennifer Hudson and Weight Loss

Jennifer Hudson's Inspiring Weight-Loss Journey

Happy birthday, Jennifer Hudson! The Oscar-winning actress, singer, and mom turned 32 yesterday. We love Jennifer for inspiring others with her weight-loss success — the Weight Watchers spokesperson and Winnie Mandela star lost 36 kilos after having her son back in 2009. Here's how Jennifer made her fit commitment.

A lifestyle: Jennifer's weight-loss journey started with her decision to lose weight after her pregnancy. But instead of resorting to dangerous crash dieting, Jennifer lost weight the sensible way: through portion control and exercise, as part of her participation in Weight Watchers. "It's a lifestyle change, not a diet," she said after becoming a Weight Watchers spokespersonin 2010.

Happiness fulfilled: While Jennifer is obviously proud of her weight loss, she knows that it's not all about the number on the scale or dress tag. Jennifer has always been vocal about being comfortable in her own skin, no matter what her size. "I liked who I was then and I like who I am now," she told Ellen about how she felt after going from a size 18 to 8.

Sweat for success: Jennifer has trained with Harley Pasternak, who whips his celebrity clients into shape with time-saving workouts, including his 25-minute five factor workout (try one of Harley's favourite 25-minute workouts here). Jennifer's all about keeping her workouts intense and fun; in fact, she loves playing a game of basketball as her exercise. "I love basketball. It's fun, you don't even realise you're working out. [You] just keep that metabolism going and just keep that energy up. That's that cardio — you're getting it in and you don't even realise it," she told Oprah.
