Hello! This blog is being discontinued. With my NEW weight loss journey on the horizon, I felt it was only right to start with a brand new home. I hope to see you there!


Jennifer Hudson to Pen Memoir About Weight Loss

 It's been rumored that Grammy and Oscar award-winning entertainer, Jennifer Hudson and agent have been trying to shop the idea of sharing her weight loss journey via book, for a few years now. However, since she was not ready, nor willing to disclose information concerning the violent tragedy that claimed the lives of her mother and young nephew in 2008 - it was perceived that the project investment was not a sure bet. She, however, vehemently dispelled that being the reason for not landing a deal sooner.

Despite the reasonings for those passing on the proposal before, Dutton Books has stepped up, agreed to her terms (monetarily and subject matter-wise) and signed a projected $1M deal with the star, to publish. Releasing the following statement about the currently untitled publication:

"Jennifer wants to inspire anyone coping with weight issues, share some of her own best tips for losing and maintaining weight loss, fitting in exercise and keeping it fun."  

The book will also highlight her relatable experiences with being raised in an atmosphere that was not conducive to healthy living. And of course, her challenges with being an 'overweight' American Idol contestant.

Inspired by motherhood, Jennifer Hudson revealed that she went from a size 16 to 6 and lost 80 pounds within a 2-year span, with the help of WeightWatchers®. It looks like this ride is only just beginning for J-Hud and her journey. So, I take it - we'll be hearing ... "it's a neeeeeew dayyyyyyyeee" on commercials a little while longer.
