Songstress Jennifer Hudson will no longer be the ambassador for Weight Watchers. Ms. Hudson began as the company spokesperson in 2010 and now four years later she has dropped 80 pounds. The unofficial American Idol and Weight Watchers’ parting is mutual and amicable reports The New York Daily News.

Hudson had the following to say about her experience with Weight Watchers, “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.” Weight Watchers also stated that they feel confident that Ms. Hudson will continue to use their products and remain a lifetime member.

Hudson was motivated to lose weight while pregnant and signed on to be a spokesperson for the brand a year after her baby was born. It was reported that Hudson slimmed down from a size 16 to a size 6. At one point it was alleged that Hudson was down to a size zero. Hudson has since said that she has lost 80 pounds and is done losing weight. There has been some backlash because of her weight loss that she was losing too much. Hudson assured naysayers that 80 pounds was the cutoff point and she will not continue to lose weight.

Weight Watchers has re-upped with another famous face to be a spokesperson – Jessica Simpson. She too wanted to shed some weight after the birth of her baby.

The Dreamgirls star is still on a roll with new projects in the hopper. Hudson will release her third studio album this year. She said it will be more upbeat than her past projects and will feature some heavy hitting producers; Pharrell, R Kelly, Timbaland to name a few. Also she is wrapping up another acting gig with the movie Lullaby, which is scheduled for release this year.
