Jennifer Hudson celebrated Weight Watchers’ 50th anniversary at the Weight Watchers Center in New York City on Monday night (March 25).
The Chicago-native spoke at the event dedicated to the founder, Jean Nidetch and shared her weight loss experience with attendees. Hudson has been the official spokesperson for the popular weight management program since 2010.
In a recent interview with the Huffington Post, the actress/singer dished on her new lifestyle and touched on the challenges/misconceptions of staying slim:
People don’t think you can actually do it naturally. Nothing annoys me more. I hear so many different types of comments. When it happens and you achieve it, people somehow try to find a way to try to discredit you for it, and it’s ‘Oh, they had surgery.’ I think other people’s experiences of doing things like that have cut people short of believing that it is possible. You can do it — I’m an example of that. Weight Watchers works, if you work it. You have to work it. And a lot of people are so blocked and blinded by ‘Oh, I can’t do it.’ It’s like, no. It can happen naturally.
