Though her body remains testament to its success, singer-actress Jennifer Hudson is no longer a face of Weight Watchers.

The ‘Dreamgirls’ star and the weight-loss brand have parted ways after four years, her commitment to the company fulfilled, her representative said, reported E! online.

“My experience with Weight Watchers has truly been life changing. I am grateful for what I have learned throughout the process and will always take it with me. I have chosen to step away from my role as ambassador and I am excited for the year to come, with many new projects and lots of new music,” ” Hudson said in a statement.

Speculation about a possibly not-very-amicable split circulated after Hudson tweeted, “Sometimes you have to step back and let your work speak for you, and when that doesn’t work you walk away knowing you did your best…It’s been fun and a pleasure good luck to you all @WeightWatchers.”

Hudson welcomed son David in 2009 and hooked up with Weight Watchers the following year—and never looked back.

The ‘American Idol’ castoff turned Oscar winner ultimately shed 80 pounds and became quite the red-carpet standout, having gone from a size 16 to a 6.
