London: Singer-actress Jennifer Hudson has not been able to "mentally" accept her new slim look and still thinks she is big.

The `Dreamgirls` star has shed 80 pounds in just under two years and while she has done it slowly and sensibly, Hudson still finds it difficult to embrace her new physique,
reported a website.

"I`m still not used to my new self yet, so I`m figuring out who I am right now. Like, how do I want to be perceived? Who am I?

"Along with a physical change, it is also a mental change, so my mind has to play catch up with what everybody else sees. I haven`t got there yet. I go shopping and pick up
an outfit in an extra-large or large. Physically I might be right, but not mentally," said Hudson.

Although the 29-year-old mother of a son is yet to fully accept her new figure, Hudson is enjoying wearing different clothes.

"It`s much more fun getting ready now and it doesn`t take as much time. I`m rediscovering my own style," said the `Spotlight` singer.
