Now that she's dropped from a size 16 to a six, Oscar winner and American Idol alum Jennifer Hudson has a whole new problem: She's hoarding clothes!

The Weight Watchers spokeswoman appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday and told fans, "I liked who I was then, and I like who I am now." But, she admits, after giving birth to son David, 16 months, "I just wanted my body back. Whatever body that was. I realized when I was pregnant, I was like, 'Man, I was wearing the same clothes I was wearing before I was pregnant.' That was kind of like a wake up call. I wanted to set a good example for my son."

On enrolling in Weight Watchers, Hudson says, "That was when I made up my mind, I was going to go for it." And now that she's shed more than 80 pounds, Hudson says clothes are "a lot more fun." But, she admitted she's bought so many items that now she now has no more closet room.

"It's so bad, Ellen, to the point that I have to throw my clothes up on the canopy of the bed because I don't have any space in the drawers or the closet," she sheepishly admitted. "I've taken over the bedroom, the guest room, and now I'm throwing stuff on top of the canopy."

Hudson said that fiance David Otunga and son David, 16 months, barely have any room in the house.

"You've seen the show Hoarders, right?" countered DeGeneres.

But Hudson didn't want to hear it. "I think it's different because it's new stuff," she said.

"They all think it's different," responded DeGeneres.
