Jennifer Hudson is sitting pretty (in pink!) for her cover of SELF magazine. In the health and fitness mag’s latest issue, the Art For Life supporter opens up about shedding an astounding 80 pounds. JHud is clearly aware that achieving her toned physique is quite the accomplishment, “I’m prouder of my weight loss than my Oscar! I hope it has inspired people.” For more of the “No One Gonna Love You” siren’s cover spread and to go behind the scenes from the Academy Award winner’s shoot jump below.

Behind-the-scenes of Jennifer Hudson’s SELF magazine shoot:

When asked about her fans’ reaction to her weight loss the 29-year-old shared, “Some love it and say they’re inspired, and others don’t . . .  I can’t care about whether I’m too big for some or too small for others . . . I like me the way I am. For anyone who wants to lose: Dude, if I can do it, you can do it. And for those who want to stay the same, I hope I can be an example to you, too; I was proud of being a big girl.”
