Jennifer Hudson Parts Ways with Weight Watchers
After losing 80 lbs. – and keeping it off–the actress-singer is parting ways with the company after four years
The singer, 32, announced she’s parting ways with the weight loss brand. A source confirms to PEOPLE that the contract was coming to an end and it was a mutual decision.
“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,” Hudson says in a statement to PEOPLE.
“My experience with Weight Watchers has truly been life changing. I am grateful for what I have learned throughout the process and will always take it with me.”
A rep for Weight Watchers adds, “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.”
Hudson recently told PEOPLE she never lost weight to keep Hollywood happy. “The key about losing weight: You have to do it for you.”
