Weight Watchers spokeswoman Jennifer Hudson is thrilled over the opening of the ‘Weight Watchers Jennifer Hudson Center” in Chicago.

Jennifer famously lost 80 pounds by working the Weight Watchers System and now she’s been honored with a center named after her in her hometown. She shared at the grand opening:

“I never thought I would make it to have my own center. I’m so honored to be here and see this day.”

Weight Watchers will donate a portion of the center’s revenue to Jennifer’s foundation that she started in memory of her late nephew Julian King.

“I love to target children, because that’s the thing that makes a difference. We hope to do the same thing and start here at home in Chicago with health, with education, with dreams.”
