41 of 44: Jennifer Hudson has come a long way since her days on 'American Idol' in 2004, during which then-judge Simon Cowell compared her to a wrapped turkey. Hudson first showed off a slimmer figure in April 2010 and starred in a Weight Watchers campaign. She lost about 80 pounds and went from a size 16 to a size 6. She plans to detail her journey in a memoir, set for release in January 2012.
