*Jennifer Hudson, currently shooting the film “Winnie” in South Africa, says she has reached her goal weight after dropping from a size 16 to a size 6 following the birth of her first child.
“I don’t want to lose any more weight, and you’re never going to see me skinny,’ she told InStyle Makeover magazine.
The singer-actress, who gave birth to David in August 2009, admits that her new figure often takes her by surprise. “I’m like, wow! This is what I look like?”
The Oscar winner said she dropped pounds by working out five times a week with celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak and following Weight Watchers, for whom she is a spokesperson.
“It’s not a diet, it’s really a way of living that teaches you better skills,” she says of the weight loss plan. “For years I felt like I could never have ice cream, but I can eat ice cream occasionally now!”
In “Winnie,” Hudson plays the former wife of Nelson Mandela alongside Terrence Howard.
