Jennifer Hudson has worked to lose 80 pounds through diet, exercise, and the Weight Watchers program. The singer and actress shares with February’s issue of Good Housekeeping that her son doesn’t even recognize the ‘old’ her. Jennifer also shares a bit about her super romantic fiance David Otunga.
On her son, David:
“What’s funny is that he’s never known me overweight. If he sees a clip of the old Jennifer from Dreamgirls, he doesn’t know who it is.”
On her former size:
“Early on, I remember one of the musical directors telling me that everything about me was too big. My voice, my size, and my personality.” Defiant, Hudson asked her, “Isn’t that what being a star is? Stars are larger than life!”
On dealing with cravings:
“I’ll find a calm, peaceful moment, and I’ll sit back and eat my chocolate, which I make sure is really good quality, too. Quality over quantity!”
What Valentine’s Day is like in her world:
“Let me tell you, this man goes bananas. When I wake up that morning in February, I can’t see through the house because he’s got confetti and balloons everywhere, rose petals on the floor, and candles in every single room.”
