Revealing figure: Jennifer Hudson revealed on Oprah today that she has lost a massive 80 pounds since embarking on her weight loss journey

Jennifer Hudson has finally shared 'her magic number' - the amount of weight she has lost since embarking on her weight loss journey.

The 29-year-old singer revealed on The Oprah Winfrey show today that she has dropped a whopping 80lbs from her frame - and feels better than she ever has.

The Weight Watchers spokeswoman said: 'It's like a brand new me. Sometimes I don't even recognise myself!'

Although she has revealed that she has gone down from a size 16 to a size 6, she says she has now reached her goal weight and does not want to get any slimmer.

'That 4 and that 2 and that 0 is not for me', she said of the minute clothing sizes.

The Chicago native is also giving back and has taken everything she has learned and passed it on to several family members who have also slimmed down with her.

Collectively her relatives have lost a massive 1,935 pounds which she said was a great motivation in her continuing to lose inches too.

Her family were murdered by her sister's ex-boyfriend in a horrific tragedy that left the singer distraught.
