Dreamgirl's dream comes true

While Hudson had always been proud of her curvy size, the birth of her son in 2009 and a desire to be a healthy role model for him made her decide to focus on her weight issues once and for all. She talks about making the decision to start on Weight Watchers and is candid about her goals, successes and frustrations throughout her incredible weight loss journey. In Chapters 8 and 9, readers will relate to what Hudson has to say about taking control of her health as they would with any friend.

For those who struggle with their weight, "I Got This" is a truthful story for anyone who dreams big. "I wrote this book because I want you to have a sense of who I am, where I've come from and what I've been through so you know my journey has been totally real," said Hudson. She has never forgotten where she came from.

She writes about the influence of her grandmother and the unending support of her mother. This is why, even though she has achieved fame, her cousin helps her with her son, one of her brothers works security for her and her best friend from middle school is her executive assistant. She surrounds herself with people who have been there all along. Her family, her determination and her belief in God's plan have gotten her from singing in church and in talent shows to where she is today.

Hudson is a Grammy Award-winning performer and an Academy Award-winning actress. She is the current spokesperson for Weight Watchers. "I Got This" is a gift for Hudson's millions of fans and an inspiration for anyone struggling with weight issues.
