Jennifer Hudson’s novel “I Got This” explores the star’s battle with her weight and the expectations thrust upon her after competing in American Idol, while trying to remain true to herself and her roots.
Jennifer Hudson first came into the spotlight through American Idol season three, which wasn’t her first attempt at the show. She had previously auditioned in season two. Since then Hudson has appeared in blockbusters including Dreamgirls and won an Oscar for her role in this film and Sex and The City, has recorded two albums and sold 1,280,000 albums – as of February 2012.
The primary focus of “I Got This” is weight management – not weight loss. It’s not so much a book with a story – but a book with a message. An important one. This message being, be the best and healthiest person you can be.
A phrase that Ms. Hudson abides by herself. Through her role as a spokesperson for Weight Watchers Jennifer offers her favourite Weight Watchers tips, tricks and at the end of the book a few of her favourite Weight Watchers recipes – which sound almost too good to be true!
The story doesn’t read as though it’s been supported by Weight Watchers, which I think is a good thing. The advice and story are combined perfectly.
The book is a great read if you’d like to know more about Hudson’s rise to fame, how she’s delt with being thrust in the spotlight while remaining true to herself.
Recommended if you’re after a story that will inspire you to be the best and healthiest you possible and who wouldn’t want that?
