Weight Watchers’ first celebrity spokesperson was actress Lynn Redgrave back in 1983. Since then a number of male and female celebrities have followed WW (Weight Watchers) and endorsed the program as ambassadors.
Surely you know Oprah, Jessica Simpson, and Jennifer Hudson, but there are some celebrities on this list who you might not know followed and endorsed Weight Watchers including new WW Ambassadors Ciara and James Corden. We even added before and after pics when possible!
You can find a list of current WW ambassadors at weightwatchers.com/us/ambassadors plus here’s our list of WW (Weight Watchers) celebrity ambassadors, spokespeople, and celebrities who have lost weight with Weight Watchers:
1. Ciara Lost 39 Pounds on WW
Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter, Ciara, recently lost her baby weight with WW and was happy to sign on as a WW Ambassador. Here’s what she had to say about the program:
A year ago today, I decided I was going to set a game plan to lose the last 48lbs (of the 60lbs) I gained during my pregnancy with Win and that is when I decided to join the dub-dub club! #wwambassador
I’ve learned so much during this journey. The best part was that I didn’t have to be restrictive with my food and fitness plan, @ww gave me balance. I was able to enjoy my life while getting back to what feels good to me!! People talk about the “bounce back” a lot and I wanted to do this MY way and at my pace! I love the curves I got during my pregnancy and wanted to keep some of them!:) I’m so proud of what I’ve accomplished— I feel so good and confident in my skin!…
(Weight Watchers) gives you everything it takes to get the job done.” Your WW app will be personalized with trackers, tips and tricks, recipes, and easy-to-use tools designed to help make losing weight easier.”Ciara via Instagram and weightwatchers.com
2. James Corden Joins WW (2021)
“I’m going to embark on this year of health because I absolutely believe that WW has the tools to make this the year that I make this change. If you want to embark on a year of health and you want to do it together, let’s make this the last year that this is our New Year’s resolution.”James Cordon via WW Instagram
James Corden also recently talked at length to Oprah about his WW weight loss journey:
It’s easy to relate to James Corden’s weight loss struggles!
3. Jennifer Hudson (Singer, Actress, Celebrity, WW Spokesperson)
You probably remember that Jennifer Hudson was an ambassador for WW Weight Watchers a few years back. In fact, Jennifer lost 80 pounds on Weight Watchers after having her son back in 2009, going from a size 16 to a size 6.
She told People magazine, “My experience with Weight Watchers has been truly life-changing… I am grateful for what I have learned throughout the process and will always take it with me.”
4. Kate Hudson (Actress, Entrepreneur, Celebrity, WW Spokesperson)
Kate Hudson (no, not Jennifer’s sister!) is an actress, designer, celebrity, author, mom (of three!), and WW (Weight Watchers) ambassador. How does she do it all?
“Health and wellness is my number one and I always say that what works for me doesn’t work for everyone. I believe that we need to celebrate diversity in how each individual wants to celebrate their body. We aren’t all going to enjoy the same work outs, outdoor activities, foods etc. I’ve become an Ambassador for the WW family because it is the perfect community for people to live healthy their own way and I love sharing this knowledge with you all! This is not a community for people who just want to lose weight, although leading a healthy lifestyle lends itself to such, this is a community about supporting each other through a life long journey of wellness. I’m so happy to share this with everyone and I have to say, having @oprah on my call list was a dream come true!”Kate Hudson Instagram
“I’ve got a baby who’s a couple of months old, a full-on teenager, and a seven-year-old. I think everything I do – from what I put in my body to the goals I set for myself—will reflect on them… My ‘Why’- my reason for joining WW; is to live the longest I possibly can for my kids.”Kate Hudson
Kate recently told People Magazine that she weighs 136 pounds which is 10 pounds above her ideal weight, which she hopes to reach using WW.
5. DJ Khaled Weight Loss w/ WW:
It would be nice to have a personal chef to cook healthy meals for you like DJ Khaled, but it’s easy for anyone to follow WW for wellness and weight loss. Here is DJ Khaled talking about reaching his first weight loss milestone with WW (Weight Watchers):
DJ Khaled weighed 293 pounds when he started Weight Watchers and was ecstatic to reach his first big milestone of 250 pounds after one year on the WW program!
I especially like seeing DJ Khaled as a WW Ambassador because he’s still a work in progress. In other words, those perfect models on the beach sometimes don’t seem relatable!
5. Jessica Simpson (Singer, Actress, WW Celebrity Spokesperson)
Jessica Simpson weighed 240 pounds after giving birth to her third child in 2019.
However, after losing 100 pounds in 6-months with the help of WW (Weight Watchers) and a personal trainer, she was happy to endorse the WW program as an ambassador.
Jessica’s trainer, Harley Pasternak, told People Magazine, “I never work with scales. My work with her is more about the habits she’s created and kept up. And as a byproduct of doing these habits, she lost 100 pounds.”
4. Tina Fey Lost 30 Pounds w/ WW (Weight Watchers):
“That’s when I learned how to eat properly for the first time,” she told Women’s Health magazine in 2007. “Before, I used to be one of those people who wouldn’t eat anything all day, then eat a piece of cake at 4 p.m., McDonald’s at 10 p.m., and then go to bed.”
Although she seemed to find success with the diet, Tina Fey never served as an official spokesperson for Weight Watchers.
