Jennifer Hudson Loses It

Fat Suit.jpg
I hear tell that Oscar and Grammy winner Jennifer Hudson is losing it! Pounds that is!
Jennifer, on behalf of WeightWatchers, kicked off a national ad campaign last Sunday. “I decided to do Weight Watchers. I feel like I’ve conquered the world.” says the lovely and voluptuous Jennifer.
In addition to getting the big payola (let’s be real, people – if someone paid you a large sum of money to lose it, you’d be plenty motivated), Hudson is losing it for her impending nuptials, as many brides do.
All well and good, but I do have a cautionary tale.
Please hear me loud, because I can tell you with certainty that while losing weight for an event may motivate you in the moment, your vision had better take you past the event, straight into something more meaningful or without a doubt, you will be off and running toward food the very moment that event is over!
Ask Cousin LuLu
Just ask my cousin, LuLu (okay, not her real name, but I suspect she’d kill me if I used her real name and she may anyway). LuLu’s son was getting married, and she wanted to look great in the slinky mom dress, and she wanted to be all out fabulous for the photos.
And wow, did LuLu kick into high gear! She was working out, toning her arms for her sleeveless gown, eating more fruits and vegetables, drinking water with sexy slivers of lemon and lime afloat. She was living the healthy life and loving it.
All a glow (water will do that – perfectly plumps the skin), looking almost as beautiful as the bride, (LuLu isn’t dumb enough to look better!), she danced the night away.
Event losing rarely works.
The very next morning at the wedding brunch (weddings are no longer a single event; they go on for days!), there she was at the buffet, loading up her plate like there’s no tomorrow. Bacon, croissants, butter, pancakes, syrup … you name it! Within a few months, LuLu had gained it all back plus some!
When we set our mind to lose weight for an event, it’s easy to see – isn’t it? – that when that event is over, our mind goes back to its old ways immediately and with our mind goes our behavior.
You have essentially self-hypnotized yourself. “Lose weight for event.” And you do! And that’s all you do!
In order to permanently lose weight, you want to:
1. Focus Inward: This is for you and only for you. Not for an event, not for other people.
2. Change Your Identity: You are now a person who takes care of yourself. You eat ‘right,’ you shake your booty, and you love yourself.
3. Have More: Healthy living is not about restricting yourself; it’s not about what you can’t eat. It’s about having more healthy foods, more fun, more love, more creativity, more life!
I wish Jennifer Hudson a delicious life, and I hope that she has a long term healthy vision in mind.

    Excelent post!!! I wholeheartedly agree with you.
    When I was going through the People Magazine Weight Loss Challenge… and it was coming down to the finalie…. you know the last weigh in… it was EASY to motivate myself because I wanted to look good on TV, I wanted to look good all around.
    But as soon as that was over, it was VERY difficult to stay motivated. Now, I have done it for the most part. I gained about 20lbs back of the 80 I lost, so I am not totally off the reservation. But, if I have said this once, I have said it a thousand times- “they should make a TV show out of me NOW- because this is MUCH harder!
    Thanks for the post!

    This is such great advice. The Problem is that we as people tend to look outwards too much. But if we go inside and are happy with the way we are than Weight loss takes a different reason as to why.
    Now I’m for losing weight if that’s what you want to do. But if your doing it for people to accept your for a certain event then motivation will be loss after that.
    It’s great to know that somebody is bringing a whole new realm of weight loss. To the point of letting people know if Losing weight is based on what you want to do for you. Or, what you want to do based on other people.
