You know those Weight Watchers commercials starring Jennifer Hudson, where she talks about winning at weight loss?

It looks like the former “American Idol” contestant is far from all talk. Hudson, 28, landed the on the cover of InStyle Makeover, and she’s showing off all of her hard work in a skintight banded dress. The actress went from a size 16 to a size 6.

And if that seems like a lot of change, Hudson said she has a more radical urge to switch up her hairstyle.


“I’m actually thinking about shaving my head,” Hudson admitted. “Because I feel I’ve got a good structure now [gingerly feels cheekbones]. My cousin’s a beautician, and she always tells me, ‘You could wear any hairdo.’ So I’m thinking, What if I shave my hair? Not completely off, but low. I think that would be so hot.”

But her fiance and father of her nearly year-old son, David Otunga, may not take to her new ‘do too kindly; he’s still trying to adjust to her new physique, Hudson said. “David doesn’t like change. He tells me I have no breasts anymore. He tries to feed me,” she said.

In reality, though, Hudson is happy where she is now, and doesn’t have plans to shed any more weight. “I don’t want to lose any more weight, and you’re never going to see me skinny,” Hudson told the magazine. “I think this is a good, natural size for me.”
