Singer and actor Jennifer Hudson’s ‘new’ slim figure has raised the hope of those fighting against bulges. Hudson recently revealed on the Oprah Winfrey Show that she has shed 36 kg and has gone down from a US size 16 to a size 6. Hudson also shared that she didn’t take help from any trainers, surgery, extreme dieting practices or personal chefs. She indulged in activities like basketball and jumping rope. Hudson may not have disclosed her weight but it is specualated from her clothing size that she weighed some 91 kg two years back and now weighs around 55 kg. Closer home, former MTV VJ Maria Goretti also shrunk from 77 kg to 52 in ten months.

“I shed the post pregnancy flab I had put on with the help of my trainer Vilayat Hussain. He made me do strength training, kickboxing, and running everyday. I lost 25 kg in just 9-10 months,” shares Georetti. Reality show Biggest Loser Jeetega winner Sandeep Sachdev, who weighed 124.9 kg, is yet another example who lost 50.7 kg within four months to win the show in 2007. “I became underweight to win the show,” recalls Sachdev, who is now a fitness trainer, weighs 88 kg and has some TV serials to his credit. So, if they can do it, so can you.
