In 2004, country singer Wynonna Judd admitted to her millions of fans for the first time that she had a serious problem—her weight was at an all-time high and her blood pressure and triglycerides were at dangerous levels.
Issues with her mother, Naomi, and problems with men and self-esteem all led to a pattern of overeating. Where is Wynonna now in her journey to health? "I want to be further along in my journey," Wynonna says." ... [But] I woke up this morning and I thought, 'What's my motto for today?' And it was, 'I may not be where I want to be, but I'm sure as heck not where I was.'"
Wynonna says that only recently has she learned how to communicate more effectively with her mother and husband. "We expect family members, mates, to really read our minds," she says. "I'm learning to ask for what I need."
