The "Spot Light" singer, lost a whopping 80 pounds in the four years that she was with weight loss giant . In a statement released by the singer, she simply states "I have chosen to step away from my role as ambassador and I am excited for the year to come, with many new projects and lots of new music. My experience with Weight Watchers has truly been life changing. I am grateful for what I have learned throughout the process and will always take it with me."

The decision seems to be mutual. A Weight Watchers rep also commented on Hudson's decision, "We're confident Jennifer will remain a Lifetime Member. Jennifer's healthy lifestyle and successful weight loss has inspired so many – from her friends and family to our members and staff, as well as people around the world – and we know that inspiration lives on."

The R&B singer, has been an inspiration for many, since her days as a finalist on American Idol (2003), where she became a household name. Hudson has gone on to perform on many stages. She's released two successful albums , "Jennifer Hudson" (2008) and "I Remember Me" (2011), and has won many awards. Hudson's break out role in the hit movie "Dreamgirls", had her co-starring along side Grammy-award winners, Jamie Foxx, and Beyonce Knowles. Hudson's, stellar performance won her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, and a Golden Globe Award. Hudson fans were singing her praise, for her show-stopping onscreen rendition of the hit song, "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going", a song originally recorded by the late Jennifer Holliday. With Jennifer Hudson's range of talent and success to-date, there's little doubt, that the singer, won't continue to find success moving forwards.
