She Lifted Herself Back Up

Danielle Coddington, a 33-year-old critical-care nurse and mother of two, from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, shows that women can experience breakthroughs with this Program as well.

Her story, although not a life-or-death battle like Lynn's, is inspiring—her comeback is one many can relate to. You see, up until a few years ago, Danielle had done a good job of rolling with the punches.

Her life, like everyone's, had its share of ups and downs. She had always done a good job of rebounding from setbacks and overcoming obstacles. But after her marriage broke up. she found it difficult to get back on track.

"My life was out of control," explains Danielle. "I knew I needed to do something, but I didn't know what. I was lost."

Fortunately, Danielle's brother recognized that she needed help. He brought her a copy of my video, Body of Work, and simply said, "You need to see this."

That night, after putting her kids to bed, she watched the video.

"I couldn't believe what I was seeing—I felt so much hope—I connected with the true stories of the real people featured in the movie, and, all of a sudden, I didn't feel alone anymore. I became determined, right then and there, to get control of my body and life, so I accepted Bill's challenge."

Like many others, Danielle's desire was fueled by looking at her before photo.

"I was shocked! I didn't realize how out of shape 1 was, especially my backside."

Danielle wrote out her goals and got started.

"Within a couple weeks, my body began to change. I could see it. Others could see it. And I felt more optimistic. I couldn't believe how fast my body was changing. In only three months, I lost 21 pounds of fat. Now I'm in better shape than I was in college—I can wear a bikini again and not be embarrassed."

Danielle's success is, in part, due to the support she received from her two children, Rhiannon, seven, and Hunter, five. "They stood by my side all the way and were as excited as I was by the changes. They Rollerblade with me while 1 run. And when I felt like giving up, they would encourage me to continue. I can't tell you how many times I've heard, 'You can do it. Mommy. Don't quit!'"

Danielle is now inspiring others who have been searching for a way to lose fat and finally get in shape.

"At the hospital where I work, the doctors didn't believe my goals were possible. They had seen photos of others who accepted the challenge, but they didn't believe the before and after pictures were real, until they saw mine. Now they all want to know what 1 did to achieve such dramatic results. And they're letting me help them.

"When I look back to the moment when I chose to accept Bill's challenge, I see it may have been the most important decision of my life. Had my brother not shared the Body of Work video with me, I'm not sure where I would be now. I'm not sure if I would have ever lifted myself back up, and I don't even want to think about how that would have affected my children.

"So it's not just that I look better now than I did before, I feel better—I'm a stronger person, and that's made me a better mother."
