The country singer uses Alli, which she says fits into her busy schedule
To start the new year right, country superstar Wynonna Judd has signed on to become the face of Alli – the over-the-counter weight-loss product that first hit stores in 2007.
“This is about me picking something that I know works for me,” Judd, 44, tells PEOPLE. “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.”
And a busy schedule, at that. Along with raising her kids Elijah, 14, and Grace, 12, Judd is set to release her new album on Feb. 3 and embark upon a 2009 tour.
“I don’t have diet goals,” says Judd, who started taking Alli last September. “My goals are to live as happy and healthy as I can.”
She also intends to motivate fans. By taking her weight-loss journey public, “people can see themselves in me and say ‘You know what? If she can do it, I can do it,’ ” says Judd.
“I hope people will be inspired by the fact that I’ve overcome a lot, I’m still here and it’s a miracle.”
