It isn’t just us regular folks flaunting on instagram, celebs love to flaunt their stuff too! Jennifer Hudson was feeling so good in her bikini on a recent trip to Mexico that she had to make a collage for the world to see.

On her IG photo she explained;

“It would take mexico to get me to play on the beach! I’m so not that girl! But I work hard, I deserve it right! Plus, I earned it!”

And she has every right to feel that way. After losing over 80lbs, this singer/actress/mom deserves every like on those bikini selfie’s that she posts!

Although she is no longer part of the Weight Watchers Celeb crew, JHud explains she’s got that hang of it from here on out.  “My experience with Weight Watchers has truly been life changing,” she shared. “I am grateful for what I have learned throughout the process and will always take it with me.”

Not only does she have her food portions under control, this busy lady knows how to get in a good workout anywhere she can “Sometimes I set the timer on the stove and run up and down my steps until it goes off,” she told PEOPLE. “You don’t even need to go to the gym. Set the timer or microwave for 15 to 20 minutes and you’ll work up a sweat.”

Well Known Weight Loss Programs Losing Customers

20130815-174800.jpg

It looks like some of the weight loss programs are actually losing some weight, the wrong weight….it’s customers. Oh no!

According to Yahoo, the popular weight loss programs such as Jenny Craig, Nutrisystem, and Weight Watchers are losing money.

Jenny Craig’s sales have declined the first half of the year, Weight Watchers revenue is down 3.7 so far in this year, and even worse, Nutrisystem’s sales have declined since 2008, dropping 20 percent.

The blame? The economy.

The other blame….free apps! Apps such as My Fitness Pal has the same concept as Weight Watchers, but is free.

Weight Watcher’s Chief Financial Officer, says:

“The issue with free apps is that they’re taking trial [members] out of the market.”

The Spokesperson for Nestle (which owns Jenny Craig) Edie Burge  says:

“The entire weight-loss category is going through a transition during a difficult economic environment.”

The unfortunate part is that the Lean Cuisine meals, which Nestle makes, have also declined in sales.

NutriSystem Chief Executive Dawn Zier does not blame the internet. She believes that people only come to Nutrisystem because they want something more structured and was unable to find so elsewhere.

Aside from the commercials, Nutrisystem recently started selling five-day weight loos kits at Walmart to boost it retail sales.

On the other hand, weight loss programs such as Herbalife, Medifast, and USANA Health Services have done well so far this year.

Well, we hope that there is a level playing field, because as much as obesity is on the rise, these programs are a way of hope.

Jennifer Hudson Talks About Her Weight Loss Journey

Picture 1

Jennifer Hudson has been flaunting her amazing figure on almost every Weight Watchers commercial, and after losing 80 pounds, I say strut your stuff!

She admits she still can’t believe her new body. She opens up about her weight loss journey in Lucky magazine, explaining how growing up she was unaware of her weight issue.

“The first time I was asked to lose weight (on American Idol), I was like, What? Where I come from, I was never considered particularly curvy”.

With the help of counting points, the key component used in the Weight Watchers weight loss plan, mixed with a consistent exercise regimen, Jennifer was able to lose weight, and keep it off for good.

A major priority for Jennifer right now is maintaining her weight, so she continues to count points because its flexible, and gives her the ability to still eat whatever she wants, but in more controlled moderations.

Her biggest challenge so far is self control;

“My son, he wants pizza, so okay, I make him a Margarita pizza, and then he doesn’t eat it, so I have some, and then that’s eight points..that gets tricky”.

The best part of losing weight she explains, is all the clothes she can now wear;

“With my new weight, it’s like I have room to play-It’s like I’m my own doll, dressing myself up. All of a sudden, a shirt can be a dress, you know”
