Hudson’s fiance says she's skinny enough




Jennifer Hudson’s fiance doesn’t want her to lose any more weight.

The singer-and-actress has dropped four dress sizes in less than two years after following a WeightWatchers plan and while both she and her long-term partner David Otunga are still adjusting to her transformation, it hasn’t been welcomed by everyone.

She said: “I haven’t actually caught up with how I look. Some people don’t like it so much and tell me to stop.

“My fiance tells me not to lose more – he likes me very basic, no make-up, no heels, no fuss. I think both of us are still struggling to come to terms with this new me. He’ll tell me not to dress up, but I tell him to get used to it.”

Jennifer – who has a 20-month-old son David with her fiance - insists she has no desire to lose any more weight as she is happy with her current frame.

She added: “Honestly, I want to stay at this weight. I don’t want to lose any more. I’m more concerned with not losing more (than gaining). If I stick with the Weight Watchers plan then I’ll have no problem. I think I’ll be this size for the rest of my life.”
