Jennifer Hudson Parts Ways With Weight WatchersBy: Pam Wright - March 16, 2014
Jennifer Hudson, 32, has met her weight-loss goals — 80 pounds lost — and has deemed it time to part ways from Weight Watchers.
The Dreamgirls actress announced the mutual decision to end her partnership of four years with the weight-loss company.
“After four years of a successful and rewarding partnership, Weight Watchers and Jennifer Hudson are ending our official partnership, though we’re confident Jennifer will remain a Lifetime Member,” a Weight Watchers rep told Us Weekly in a statement.
“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,” the statement said. “We will continue to support Jennifer in maintaining her healthy lifestyle and wish her the very best in her personal and professional life.”
“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.”[timeout]

In November 2012, Hudson said that her goal had been met. “I’m at the weight I want to be,” she said in and interview with Redbook. “But I hear all the time, ‘Don’t lose any more weight, you need to stop.’ People are under the impression that I’m still losing but I’m not.”
Jessica Simpson, 33, is the latest big name spokesperson for the company. Since joining Weight Watchers, she lost 70 pounds since giving birth to daughter Maxwell, 23 months, and has continued to show off her slimmed down figure since giving birth to son Ace in June.
On March 7, she showed off her slim figure on Instagram wearing a tight white T-shirt.[timeout]
