She rose to fame wearing plus-sized clothes and has been struggling to drop the pounds for years, but now that Jennifer Hudson has reached her weight loss goal, it is taking time for her to adjust to her hot new body.
The 31-year-old Academy Award winning actress opens up about her massive weight loss in the December 2012 issue of Redbook, revealing that she is done losing weight and is now just getting used to the idea that she is no longer plus-sized – and RadarOnline.com has the details.
“Oh, yes,” Jennifer answers when asked if she is at the weight she wants to be. “I’ve been there. But I hear all the time, ‘Don’t lose any more weight; you need to stop.’ People are under the impression that I am still losing, but I’m not.”
However, now that she is slimmed down and wearing much smaller sizes, it has been an extreme mental adjustment.
“I’m getting used to my new self more than anything,” she admits. “I got used to being plus-size and knowing how to be that, whereas this is like, ‘Okay, who am I?’ even picking my sizes, I still have that issue where it’s like, ‘I probably need an extra-large or a large,’ and the stylist is like, ‘No, you need a medium or a small.’”
With the holidays quickly approaching, Jennifer is trying to stay true to the Weight Watchers point system, allowing herself hot chocolate and a chocolate chip cookie (about 15 or 16 points), but don’t plan on bringing her favorite desert if you are invited over to her house for dinner.
“My biggest thing is banana pudding, but that is the devil,” she explains about her favorite holiday treat. “So no one is allowed to bring it into my house.”
“I can’t control myself. So why put it in my domain?”
