Four years ago former American Idol contestant turned Academy Award winning actress, Jennifer Hudson signed on to be the spokeswoman for Weight Watchers. Jennifer followed the company’s system and has lost over 80 in her four years as spokeswoman.
Hudson issued a statement explaining her decision to move in a new direction, “I have chosen to step away from my role as ambassador and I am excited for the year to come, with many new projects and lots of new music.”My experience with Weight Watchers has truly been life changing. I am grateful for what I have learned throughout the process.”
The partnership has been very successful for Hudson, last year she was chosen to receive Leader of the Year Award for the Weight Watchers big wigs to recognize her incredible success on their diet, the award followed the opening of her own weight loss center in her hometown of Chicago, Illinois in 2011.
Continuing the mutual admiration started by J. Hud’s statement, Weight Watchers issued their own statement, “We’re confident Jennifer will remain a Lifetime Member. Jennifer’s healthy lifestyle and successful weight loss has inspired so many – from her friends and family to our members and staff, as well as people around the world – and we know that inspiration lives on.”
Now that Hudson has moved on, they still have another singer with an impressive weight loss journey of her own, Jessica Simpson. Simpson has dropped over 50 pounds with the help of the program, so for now she’ll shoulder the spokeswoman duties on her own.
