While plenty of people are criticizing Jennifer Hudsonfor saying “I’m prouder of my weight loss than my Oscar!”, we couldn’t be more proud.The 29-year-old American Idol contestant and Oscar-winning singer recently lost 80 pounds for herself—not others—as she reports in the September issue of Self. I didn’t even know I was considered plus-sized until I came to Hollywood. I thought I was the perfect size! But when an interviewer asked her how it felt to be plus-sized in Hollywood, the star said she “looked around, like, Who is she talking to? Oh, me? I’m plus-sized? In the neighborhood I’m from in Chicago, a 16 is normal. But in Hollywood, everyone looks exactly the same, so I stood out.” Even though we aren’t excited by the fact that Hudson now reportedly wears a size zero (because health is not all about a number and a size zero may be too extreme), we love that she values her health more than her career. Reaching a personal goal that makes us feel awesome (physically and otherwise) is definitely more important in our books than attaining a goal simply for external accolades or a golden trophy.
