The new mom shared her thoughts about her weight loss journey. "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. It's a lifestyle change, not a diet."

Hudson has already shed the pounds since starting the program several months ago, although her Weight Watchers leader Liz Josefsberg won't say how much.

"We aren't talking numbers, but Jennifer is extremely close to another weight loss goal of hers," Josefsberg told the New York Daily News. "She's excited."

Prior spokeswomen include Jenny McCarthy and Sarah Ferguson.
