Expect to see a lot less of Jennifer Hudson.

One of our favorite curvy girls has just signed on as the new "brand advocate" for Weight Watchers.

After the August 2009 birth of her son, David Daniel Otunga Jr., the Oscar winner was inspired to follow the eating plan and will be sharing her experience in a new campaign launching April 4, according to a press release.

"Weight Watchers is the healthy, natural choice for me because it teaches me how to live a healthier lifestyle, and it makes sense for my life," Hudson says.

"I can follow the plan no matter where I am, still enjoy my favorite foods, and even use the iPhone app to track my points.

"With Weight Watchers I am enjoying the weight loss because I'm doing it the right way -- I feel empowered with what I've learned, everything from portion control to what foods will help keep me satisfied. It's a lifestyle change, not a diet."

The campaign will include TV spots, a blog, info about the star's favorite foods, a Facebook Q&A today, and a cover shoot for the May/June issue of Weight Watchers magazine.

"Because Jennifer is relatable to so many people and has experienced visible results with Weight Watchers, we feel she will help motivate others to take control of their health and try our program," David Kirchhoff, president and CEO of Weight Watchers International, Inc., says in a company statement.

As for Hudson, prepare to see even more changes in the future. "I get to shop anywhere now," she explains. "I think you'll see a huge difference in my style, in my fashion."

We're already impressed with this Dreamgirl as she is, so she better not lose all those curves!
