The 'Dreamgirls' star feels she has finally accepted her body for what it is and insists she won't hide it as she's worked hard to lose weight.

She told PEOPLE magazine: "I've made a huge transition [with my weight]. There are things you want to try but you can't always wear when you're 'plus size.'

"So I feel like I am able to explore more, but I am still very conscious of every girl, every woman, every size. I like high-waisted things. I love the pencil shape, which works regardless of your size. I feel like each one of these pieces represent that silhouette. I did not work this hard for this [my body] to hide it!"

Meanwhile, Jennifer - who has David, six, with her partner David Otunga - previously revealed parenting keeps her fit.

She shared: "We were outside in our front yard recently playing ball and I was like 'What other parent does this?' I know they think we're the strangest people, but we keep up with the kids ... In the summertime, I like to do outdoor activities with my son like bike riding, playing basketball or skating. Big David and I are very active parents.

"[I like] making it fun. If I'm not comfortable and if I can't Jennifer-ize it and make it enjoyable for me, it's not going to happen."
