My name is Danielle, and this is my story. About eleven years ago, I found myself struggling to find myself. I was divorced and then in a four-year relationship that ended. I couldn’t understand why relationships didn’t seem to work out for me. I always questioned myself. Was it that I wasn’t thin, my hair too short, etc. So I lost myself, and in the process, I became a stranger to myself. I got hair extensions and went to the extreme of getting colored contacts because I thought blue eyes were more appealing than brown eyes, I worked out more to lose weight.
On March 9, 2008, I went out on a date with a guy named Chris. Funny thing is, his best friend was dating one of my best friends, but I was so lost in my own world that I had never met him before. We went out on a date, and I found out he was divorced and had a 16-year-old son. I was skeptical because my previous relationship had involved children, and it was heartbreaking when the relationship ended. A second date was planned. But he surprised me and showed up before I realized I didn’t have my blue colored contacts in or my extensions, because I figured that was what he liked about me.
He said, “You know your eyes are beautiful brown. You don’t need those contacts, and your hair is pretty the way it is. You don’t have to change a thing.”
OMG! Was I dreaming and is this guy for real?!?
Well, we have been happily married for seven years, went through IVF and have a beautiful 7-year-old boy.
All my dreams came true, and not a day goes by that he doesn’t say “Hi Beautiful!”
I am so blessed and am back to my old self.
I have some extra weight I would like to take off, but of course he tells me I am perfect the way I am. But now I found myself, love my life and my well-being.
So I have this program and am working with Todd. I want to take on a lifelong transformation not just for my body, but also for my soul. Todd is an amazing coach—he has inspired me, he is positive and uplifting.
I have started my journey and I am losing weight, have more energy and feel amazing. So to all you amazing women out there:
DON’T EVER CHANGE YOURSELF FOR ANYONE. BE TRUE TO YOURSELF!! YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL, INSIDE AND OUT!
