I just read an article about Jennifer Hudson's weight loss. Here is a clicky (http://ca.lifestyle.yahoo.com/health-fitness/articles/diet/yahoolifestyle/yahoolifestyle-jennifer_hudson_credits_weight_watchers_and_more_f or_weight_loss) to the article (there is a before and after picture).
What bugs me that WW took all the credit for her weight loss and did not mention anything about her workout with a personal trainer.

Sorry I am posting this in a wrong forum, I was not sure where to stick it to.
She does lovely.

I thought it was common knowledge that celebrity clients of Jenny Craig, Nutrisystem, Weight Watchers, and all the other diet programs..... also have personal trainers, person chefs to cook (or heat the food in the case of food delivery), personal assistants to count their calories/points/veggies, and that they're paid for their endorsement....

You can bet the personal trainer isn't crediting Weight Watcher's.

I'd be thrilled to look like her before picture. Absolutely thrilled.

She was gorgeous before, and gorgeous after.

And part of the WW plan is that you must exercise, but they do focus more on the eating. There have been several articles that talk about how weight loss is 80% food, 20% exercise, and that's how WW bases their plan.

She looks amazing. Hopefully WW will include a statement about physical activity in the future commercials. Congrats to J-Hud!

Weight Watches is so expensive. I will lose weight the old fashion way...through diet and exercise. Jhudson looks awesome!

I agree with Kaplods on this. Also, since I do WW, I know they encourage lots of activity.

I dunno but big women sing better than smaller ones... that's proven. J/K, but of course they'd claim it was all due to them. That's like a fisherman bragging because you caught a nice fish. None of your sitting, having the proper bait, reeling, tension on the line, etc. matters.

She looks great both before and after! When she first got famous, I had a feeling she would start trying to lose weight. With all the new things accessible to her, I would've too!
I'm sure WW would try to take credit for it, she was a success under their program! But of course she had other sources of help (personal trainer or whatever have she) who would love to take credit as well.
I give her credit to herself for sticking with it and becoming successful.

I like the way she looks skinny, though she was always beautiful.

I think the only one who deserves credit for Jennifers' weight loss - is Jennifer. No one else. She's the one who put forth the effort, she's the one who ate properly and made the right choices, chose the right foods and avoided the wrong ones, she's the one who did the physical activity. She may have been guided, but again, she's the one who did the work.

She looks amazing, absolutely exquisite and I bet she feels amazing and exquisite too. There is no doubt she was beautiful before, but now - she is at her optimal and she is healthy. She's done a wonderful thing for herself and her child. I hope that she decides to maintain it.

I think my question is how did she really do it? Doesn't her personal trainer also have an eating plan that goes with his exercise regimen? Did she incoroporate his ideas with WW (which I've done before)? I would like to know more . . .

That's what Weight Watchers is. If they have started handing out magic pills that let you bypass that, lemme know! I want to sign up! ;)

Weight Watchers is paying her. She's their spokesperson. She has an endorsement from them. She's a walking advertisement and she's being paid well for it. She was on the cover of WW magazine last month (the month before?) and she does talk about exercise in the article. I mean, of COURSE she's exercising. It's part of the WW program. And of course WW wants credit. That's why they're paying her.

I think she looks better in the "before" pic.
(Except I think that dress is gross.)

Shoot, I'd look like that too if I had the money she did. Anyone who can spend a few hours a day with the best trainer and get advice on how to eat from the best nutritionist and have meals made from the best chef WW would be easy as cake! I just hate it when celebrities are spokesman for certain products because we all know that given a normal person's life it wouldn't be as simple. However, I will give her props, she looks good but I had always admired her plumpness...

I have mixed feelings about this.

Let me first say that Jennifer looks incredible, and all her hard work has paid off. She's thinner, healthier, and deserves all the credit. I am not hating!

That being said - I don't understand why all of the actresses who have some weight to lose do so after they make a name for themselves. Of course, I understand why people try and lose weight, and I understand being above your ideal weight poses significant risks to health. But actresses like Jennifer Hudson were not famous based on her looks - she's famous for her talent. I am not suggesting that she should stay heavier, but it makes me think sometimes that Hollywood "lets" heavier people in the door, and then lays on enormous pressure to lose weight.

What sparked this was recently seeing an ad for "Drop Dead Diva", a show about a very pretty, skinny, vain woman who dies and is re-incarnated as a much heavier (but still very pretty, IMO) woman as punishment for being a jerk on earth the first time. The heavier woman had lost some weight for the new season. Again, I am not the weight loss police, but I thought the point of the show was for the character and audience to find that being heavier doesn't make you less of a person - I think there are mixed messages.

I agree with rockinrobin on this. All the professional help in the world won't help if the individual won't put in the effort.
