Jennifer Hudson appeared on the Today show promoting her new book “I Got This: How I Changed My Ways and Lost What Weighed Me Down,” Hudson revealed that she underwent a bit of a shock when she started gaining notoriety for her singing talent as well as her weight.
Speaking of her red carpet appearances during “American Idol” early in her career, the Grammy and Oscar winner said, “I didn’t define myself that way so it was, like, it was a shocking moment for me. Actually when I started on the red carpet doing ‘Idol,’ I had already lost 60 pounds then. By then, I was, like, a size 12. This is every woman’s size. The average size.
