While the American singer, Wynonna, was having all the success in her music career, she was also struggling with her health. After facing some serious health threats Judd decided to go on a weight loss journey. She lost 4 stones (55 pounds) on that journey.
Wynonna’s Weight loss journey
The common phrase that “hard times make us stronger” fits perfectly in Judd’s case. She experienced two nearly death incidents. Wynonna was concerned about her health since 2006 but she could not take time to decide what to do for her health.
In 2010, doctors told Wynonna that she has blood clots in her lungs and must undergo surgery . And just four months after hearing this news, Judd got badly injured in a head-on car crash.
In the case of Wynonna, these hard experiences one after another made Judd realize that life is a precious thing. She finally decided to undergo lung surgery. And right after recovering from the surgery, Judd started a weight loss journey and she lost 4 stones.
How did Wynonna lose weight?
In just a short period of 7 months, Judd successfully lost 55 pounds. Before starting the weight loss journey, Wynonna loved fast food. And as she was always busy with her work, Judd never had time to make food at home or to make a healthy diet plan. So most of the time she went with fast food.
Consuming fast food was the main factor that contributed to Wynonna’s weight. In her own words “My weight was a symptom and not the problem. I used food to soothe and reward and I don’t do that anymore.” All the factors considered, Wynonna started following a healthy diet plan.

Wynonna’s Diet Plan
First of all, Judd restrained herself from fast food. That was not easy but she had to for the sake of her health. In fact, she avoided all processed food.
Wynonna substituted pizza, chips, and burgers with fresh vegetables and fruits. Judd would have a plate of salad for lunch and sometimes dinner as well. She also avoided consuming sugary drinks.
Another factor that Judd worked on was her habit. She had a habit that whenever she was under stress, she would reach for food unconsciously. Of course, given her work Judd was under stress a great part of the time.
So, whenever Wynonna felt being tempted to reach out for the food she would change her mind with any other activity. With all these restraining and habit shaping Wynonna succeeded in improving her appearance.
Before & After
After losing 55 pounds, Wynonna’s current weight is 159 pounds (72 kgs). That’s a very big difference she has come from 215 pounds to 159 pounds.
Oprah interviewing Wynonna
During the interview when Oprah asked Wynonna what her mother and sister mean to her she said “I invited them to come. I prayed about it, and thought, we may not have it all together, but together we have it all. We agree to disagree, and we’re very different people, but I need them. As much as I want to be autonomous and I want to be an individual, I need these two strong women in my life. And it’s something I’ve never really dealt with, with them—so let’s do it on national television!” .
Wynonna’s Promoting Product
At the moment Judd is promoting a weight loss product named “Alli”. She has also tried the product and is satisfied with it. Wynonna said explaining her experience with the product “This is about me picking something that I know works for me. I can still plan my work and not feel like Alli is dictating my life as I have in the past on other programs. It fits into my schedule.”
Judd seems to be very satisfied with Alli. She said “I love how people see themselves in me. They see me and say ‘look if I do enough hard work I will be like her as well.”
“Health is Wealth” we all hear this phrase since we become capable of listening. But yet most of us don’t give much thought to it in our daily lives. As in the case of Wynonna, she considered her health after experiencing two hard incidents. But the good thing is she took the right decision at the right time. Keep happy and keep healthy.
