Jennifer Hudson to Write Book About Her Dramatic Weight Loss

Weight Watchers helped Jennifer Hudson completely change her body, and now the Oscar winner is going to write all about the experience. E! News has confirmed that the American Idol contestant-turned-superstar has signed a deal to pen a memoir about her dramatic, 80-pound weight loss.

According to Dutton publishers, the book will detail the 29-year-old singer's "experience growing up in an environment where healthy living was not a priority," as well as talk of her weight while competing on Idol.

"Hudson wants to inspire anyone coping with weight issues, share some of her own best tips for losing and maintaining weight loss, fitting in exercise and keeping it fun," the statement says.

In February, the mom of one told Oprah Winfrey that, after whittling down to a size 6 from a size 16, she was still getting used to her new body.

"It's like a brand-new me," Hudson said. "Sometimes I don't even recognize myself."

Hudson's book is set to hit shelves in January 2012.
