Actress, mom, author and fitness clothing line entrepreneur Kate Hudson has joined the ranks of those that have publicly signed on with WW (previously known as Weight Watchers) to take part in the program and document her health changes with the world. It has been only two months since delivering her daughter, Rani Rose, and Hudson says she is ready to drop the baby weight and get healthy. But not everyone is happy with WW’s pick for its latest ambassador.
Today reports about Hudson’s decision to sign on with WW and how she hopes the plan will lead her back on the path to what she calls her “fighting weight” and above all - be healthy for her three little ones. In a recent Facetime with WW spokeswoman Oprah that the actress posted to her Instagram, Hudson explains the reason why she decided to try WW. She says, “My why is really my kids and my family and longevity — wanting to be here as long as I possibly can.” She adds, “ I had never known a program that allowed people to be themselves and do the things that they love."
Though there are many WW Facebook followers happy to welcome Hudson as a brand ambassador, some are a little less than thrilled. In the past, WW has been known to choose brand ambassadors that have a history of struggling with their weight and as we all know, Kate Hudson has been known for a toned and tiny body throughout her career. But she likes to think of the WW program as a healthier way to live, no matter your weight. Hudson told People, “This is about understanding your wellness. It’s about understanding your fitness activity, understanding your food, understanding the things that you love. It’s about how to balance.”

I generally loved KHand I say let others be themselves.. Havinf 3 girls who all battle Irritabe Bowel Disease (IBD) and struggle to stay over 100#s, SO many people make comments such as 'they shouldn't be so picky about what they eat!? ( their digestive issues requires them to be ultra conscious of what they eat); ?oh my gosh! She's so skinny!?. I share just as a reminder, we all have our battles. To make one's ?battle? that this is WW's new spokesperson is a waste of time, in my opinion. Having said that - I had not heard that she had made the comment about women having c-sections being lazy. Have all my girls by c-section, that hits close to home. We as women need empower all of those we influence, particularly other girls and women. Childbirth is a very private, most amazing, often heartbreaking experience. To judge is needless and often cruel. And those in the public eye have a heavy burden with what they say as it is shared with so many more people.
She's so problematic from her Fabletics line scam membership and poor clothing to her comments about c-sections being lazy. I don't like her generally and making her a Weight Watchers ambassador when she's never been "out of shape" is hard to take seriously.
I am impressed with how Weight Watchers (WW) has rebranded to WW and broadened their scope to go beyond just weight loss to more of a healthy lifestyle with weight loss being a part of it.
I think it's great! WW isn't about one set of goals, only one shape.
