MONTGOMERY, ALABAMA Friday Feb.23.2007 / -- American Idol alum Ruben Studdard was spreading the word on weight-loss with the Scale Back Alabama campaign.

The singer, who has lost almost 100 pounds since the summer, visited local schools to talk to the students about the importance of keeping fit.

He told the kids at Montgomery's Capitol Heights Junior High School, "I don't want y'all to be like me. I don't want y'all to get to college and stop working out and forget all the things you have to do to be healthy. I want y'all to continue working out for the rest of your life so you don't have to start all over like Ruben Studdard, trying to get yourself back into shape."
