The moment we’ve all been waiting for: Jennifer Hudson, Black America’s sweetheart, is set to publish a tell-all memoir about her weight-loss journey. After the tragic murder of her family, she’s been unstoppable with a chart-breaking album, first child, healthier figure, and now, she’ll add a sure-to-be bestselling book.
From a size 16 to 6, she credits Weight Watchers and a personal trainer for her amazing transformation. However, she cites the birth of her son as the true catalyst for change. As a mother and public figure, she’s ready to set a healthy example for both her son and the world.
From the publisher’s news release via the LA Times:
The book … will chronicle Hudson’s experience growing up in an environment where healthy living was not a priority, to dealing with talk of her weight as she competed on American Idol and won her first Oscar, to her eventual decision to get healthy after the birth of her son, and her success losing weight with the help of Weight Watchers. Now, 80 pounds lighter, Hudson wants to inspire anyone coping with weight issues, share some of her own best tips for losing and maintaining weight loss, fitting in exercise and keeping it fun and much more.
While a popular gossip site claimed “publishers would rather try to make money from the Hudson Family murders than J.Hud’s slimmy trimmy-dom,” clearly Hudson had the last say. Set to be published by Dutton in 2012, the book surely will be a success without undermining Hudson’s sense of privacy about her familial matters. Between Hudson’s weight-loss journey, inspiration from her first-born son, and improved lifestyle, there is plenty to read and captivate our attention.
