Jennifer Hudson may have once been considered the hefty "Dreamgirl" with an even bigger voice, but not anymore. Jennifer Hudson is taking her new ultra-slim figure all the way to the bank as the new spokesperson for Weight Watchers.

Hudson has appeared to have slimmed down since the birth of her 7-month-old son, David Daniel Otunga Jr., looking more svelte than ever on Grammy red carpets which got her on the Best Dressed List as well. But the star reveals it was the popular weight-loss company that helped.

"With Weight Watchers, I am enjoying the weight loss because I'm doing it the right way — I feel empowered with what I've learned, everything from portion control to what foods will help keep me satisfied," Hudson told People.com. "It's a lifestyle change, not a diet."

She's not revealing how much weight she lost, although some reports estimate up to 50 pounds, but she does say how the program fit into her busy schedule. "I can follow the plan no matter where I am, still enjoy my favorite foods and even use the iPhone app to track my points," she said.

She even hit Good Morning America as part of her announcement as the new face of Weight Watchers. "No one recognizes me anymore," she said on the show. I want to find a better lifestyle so I set my mind to this challenge for a healthier lifestyle."

"I felt like I've conquered the world. It's about the progress. It's like, 'Okay, I have a child now and I want to set a great example for him,'" she said. "I'm educating myself. And by learning this way it makes it so much more convenient for me."

Hudson joins a line of past Weight Watchers spokeswomen which have included actress Jenny McCarthy, Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, and Lynn Redgrave.
