Vocal powerhouse and new mom Jennifer Hudson has been named the new face of Weight Watchers, an international weight-loss program, according to her Web site.

The 28-year-old former “American Idol” alum has been praised for representing full-figured women in the media and has never allowed her weight to be a hindrance.
So far, the Oscar-winning star has lost 60 pounds.

“I decided to do Weight Watchers. I feel like I’ve conquered the world. It’s a lifestyle change, not a diet. I don’t really diet as such. I actually get up and work hard every day,” the singer told femalefirst.co.uk. “I make sure I eat right and just make sure I stay focused. It is about being consistent and sticking with it.”

Hudson added that she decided to implement a healthier lifestyle for her son.
