Publisher's Summary

A personal and inspirational memoir from Grammy and Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson, focused on her amazing transformation as she embraced a healthy lifestyle and lost over 80 pounds.
Soulful and sultry, Jennifer Hudson wowed the world with her powerful voice in American Idol's third season, and then took Hollywood by storm with a star turn in Dreamgirls that won her an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. But before we knew her as an American Idol standout, Jennifer was singing in her church choir in the Southside of Chicago. This uplifting memoir tells the story of Jennifer's meteoric rise from American Idol to Dreamgirls to her amazing weight loss on the megablockbuster Weight Watchers diet plan. With the Weight Watchers brand endorsing her, Jennifer gives her fans tips for embracing a healthy lifestyle in order to lose weight and reclaim their bodies.
Full of stories from her American Idol days, her experience acting in Dreamgirls, and how her son inspired her to want to live healthfully, this book is a gift for her millions of fans and an inspiration for anyone struggling with weight issues.

An ad for weight watchers

I enjoyed her story until she got to the part about weight watchers. I sympathize with her journey as I also struggle with weight issues. I also like the weight watchers program and I am a member online. But this book turned into a weight watchers commercial. It felt like that part of the book was written by a weight watchers PR person rather than Jennifer. At one point in the book she became very defensive about people who had different opinions about her. I enjoyed two thirds of this book but the last third . . . not so much.

She is happy she has changed her life with WW

Any additional comments?

Of course she is going to sing the praises of WW. Weight Watchers helped her change her life for the better and made her slimmer and Healthier. I don't blame her for talking about WW, in fact I would have been disappointed if she had not discussed it. She is also trying to help others to get slimmer and healthier too.
