Jennifer Hudson Too Thin?

Since it is "that time of year" (you know ... weight loss month) I thought I would express some feelings I am having toward this magazine cover.  As we all know, Jennifer Hudson is a spokesperson for Weight Watchers.  This magazine cover makes her look TOO THIN!  At first when I saw this I got disgusted like what is Weight Watchers doing?  The great thing about them is they approach weight loss with a realistic healthy approach but she is looking TOO THIN!  
Picture un-"cover"ed - you can see that Lucky did photoshop!
.
I think this picture as it is - would have been a better representation!

Maybe I am being to critical ... the two photos aren't that DRASTICALLY different but I am just sick of magazine covers giving a false reality of what people look like especially someone who is a spokesperson for weight loss - let's keep it realistic - you have people looking up to you and using you as inspiration.

What do you think about magazine covers?

  1. Wow, you can definitely tell a difference before and after photoshop! I think you make a great argument. Hopefully more people will be vocal about this!

  2. You've definitely got a point! She went through a drastic change which is impressive in itself. There's no need for anything more.

  6. I agree the cover makes her look way too thin but the photo in the inside she looks great. I get so sick of seeing photoshopped photos of celebrities. I mean I get it they aren't going to show the cellulite on the cover but lets be serious they are human too!

  7. I don't leave a ton of comments, but I looked at a few of the remarks here "Jennifer Hudson Too Thin?". I actually do have a few questions for you if it's okay.
    Could it be only me or do a few of these remarks appear like they are left by brain
    dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting at other social sites,
    I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.

12 Things You Need for Successful Weight Loss

1) Get your head in the game! Weight loss doesn't happen without dedication.  You have to have the mindset to get it done.  I've said in the past that motivation for me is like a light switch ... when it's on it is ON.  Even though motivation is one of the key things you need ~ you also need patience, understanding, time, and willpower.  You have to make a commitment to yourself and stick with it. 2) Track your progress! Tracking keeps you honest to yourself.  Without tracking you can sabotage yourself into overeating.  For example, tell me EVERYTHING you ate on Friday off the top of your head, not so easy right?  Also, there are tons of apps out there that you can quickly track or you can do it the old fashion way of writing it down.  Find what works for you and do it daily.  Also, as a rule I normally track my whole day in the morning.  Breakfast, Lunch, Snack & Dinner.  This also keeps me in track.  I can budget out my day and make changes if things arise or when y…

It's Okay Thursday/Hello Monday #5

... to be so productive that you "forget" to blog!

... to have tire issues on April Fool's Day and have to preface every text with ... this is NOT an April Fool's joke.

... to buy 11 items from the dollar days area at Target in an effort to get organized.  {hmmmm ... maybe a good idea for a blog post.}

... to forget to finish this post!

Hello Monday#5 It is truly amazing how much better my makeup and hair look on the weekend. So if you have never tried Starbucks Via Iced Coffee - I highly recommend. So I just watched Into the Woods over the weekend.  Why did the music sound EXACTLY like Sweeney Todd? Seriously I even googled that sh!t and came up with nothing. Why is it on weekends I am all about managing my down time  like it was my last meal or something.  Um no, I cannot do XYZ,  that is a total lack of consideration to my weekend of staying at  home and doing nothing for 48 hours straight.  
How are you doing today?
