In the wake of her dramatic weight loss, singer and actress Jennifer Hudson recently introduced her new weight loss center in her native city Chicago.

According to the Associated Press, The Jennifer Hudson Weight Watchers Center opened on Sept. 27 in the city’s Hyde Park neighborhood on the South Side.

The company said it will donate a portion of the center’s revenue to a foundation commemorating the life of Hudson’s late nephew Julian King, who was murdered with her mother and brother in 2008.

Hudson became a Weight Watchers spokesperson last year, and has lost a total of 80 pounds. According to USA Today, the singer announced back in June that she will release a weight loss memoir in January 2012.
