Danielle's Journey

Danielles-Journey | Pam Bredenkamp | Health Coach

Healthy and Happy!

“I learned healthy eating habits, healthy shopping… I not only changed myself, but I also changed my children.”

Danielle Judge’s health journey was truly transformational. She broke her ankle in 2015 and was unable to get around, leading to a weight gain of 65 pounds on top of an already unhealthy body weight.

“I was suffering from depression, high blood pressure, and I had no energy. I wasn’t a good healthcare provider for my mother because I was tired all the time. I joined the OPTAVIA program in March of 2016 and got an amazing Coach who helped me see that this wasn’t a diet—it was a whole new way of life.”

OPTAVIA taught Danielle how to make healthy choices not just for her, but for her family. In addition to losing 150 pounds--half her body weight*--Danielle is thrilled with how happy and healthy she’s become, and where her life is going right now.

“I have so much more energy. I’m active with my children, we go bike riding and play games. Due to losing the weight, my blood pressure is better. In addition to cooking healthy for everyone, I’m also teaching my children how to make healthy choices.”

“It’s so great being a part of this amazing Community—helping people get a second lease on life.” Now that she’s a Coach herself, Danielle is paying it forward and helping others write transformational stories as successful as her own.
