Inside the issue, Hudson talks about losing 80 pounds on Weight Watchers after which people became concerned and implored her not to lose any more weight.
On losing over 80 pounds with Weight Watchers: “I’m at the weight I want to be. But I hear all the time, ‘Don’t lose any more weight, you need to stop.’ People are under the impression that I’m still losing but I’m not.”
On no longer being (American) clothing size 16: “I’m getting used to my new self more than anything else. I got used to being plus-sized and knowing how to be that, whereas this is like, ‘Okay, who am I?’ I keep thinking that I probably need an extra-large or a large and the stylist is like, ‘No, you need a medium or a small.’”
On whether she found closure after the 2008 murders of her mother, brother, and 7-year-old nephew: “I mean, you can never fully get complete closure… whatever that means. Is there ever really a point of closure? Do I feel healed? No.”
On how she honors her late nephew during the holidays: “The Julian D. King Toy Drive and Christmas dinner is for kids who are doing well in school… just progressing, they don’t necessarily have to have all As or Bs… and we grant whatever their Christmas wish is.”
On resisting holiday food temptation: “My biggest thing is banana pudding, but it’s the devil! So no one is allowed to bring it into my house. Because I can’t control myself. So why put it in my domain?” – via Redbook Magazine.
