Jennifer Hudson has lost an impressive 80 lbs. since 2010 thanks to Weight Watchers, but now it seems she's hungry for a change.
The singer, 32, announced she's parting ways with the weight loss brand. A source confirms to PEOPLE that the contract was coming to an end and it was a mutual decision.
"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 says in a statement to PEOPLE.
"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."

When Rachel Frederickson left The Biggest Loser Ranch three months ago, she had the same goal shared by all of the show's contestants: to continue shedding weight.
But after returning to the show 45 lbs. lighter than she left it – for a total weight loss of 155 lbs. – the spotlight is now focused on whether Frederickson, 24, may have resorted to extreme measures to lose the additional weight in advance of the show's Tuesday finale.
Currently a size 0/2 and 105 lbs., Frederickson herself briefly addressed the controversy in a conference call on Wednesday.
