I have been on Cyndi Benson's Grace and Strength Diet. The results have been INCREDIBLE!
I have tried every diet imaginable to loose weight, but nothing has EVER worked so successfully for me. I had lost 20lbs on Weight Watchers beginning in April of this year, but then became "stuck". I had also tried Kirsti Alley's weight loss. I became irritated and VERY defeated. Then one day I was reading blogs and came across a post by Amy Perry of the Christian Singing group Selah. I followed a few of the things she mentioned and then sent an email to Cyndi Benson. Cyndi replied quickly and answered a few questions that I had. I didn't do anything immediately, but about a month later I contacted Cyndi again. Within a few days, I began the Grace and Strength Diet . . . the date was August 31, 2010. Today I am on Day 87 and 47.6 lbs lighter. I am quite certain that I would be down another five to ten lbs by this date if I had not indulged a few times during these 87 days.
Without entering into too much of the program . . . I will leave that to Cyndi . . . I will say:
I speak with my Coach Brenda once a week! She provides great encouragement and guidance.
Cyndi Benson is a Nutritionist and KNOWS her "stuff"!
I am on a very specific eating plan.
500 calories a day = 250 calories for lunch & 250 calories for dinner
I take a HCG supplement three times a day before meals
I am rarely hungry between meals and actually become very satisfied at meal time.
I try to drink a LOT of water - some days I am better at that than other days.
Now that I am almost 70 lbs lighter = 47.6 lbs with THIS plan in only 2 1/2 months
and 20 lbs through previous methods,
I have noticed several things:
I am not obsessed with food.
My clothing gets more and more loose by the day - which means a lot of new clothes.
I have increased energy.
People do not recognize me. (Yes, I have had to reintroduce myself at times.)
I get cold (never have had this problem)
I felt a bit small in my BIG Escalade . . . now I feel just right in my SRX Crossover.
I can walk at a faster rate and with incline on my treadmill and actually lose track of time!!!
I really enjoy walking on it now.
I can polish my toes without holding my breath because I am bending over.
My hubs makes sure I eat. (I have forgotten a time or two.)
I am very conscious of the food I eat.
Natural foods taste incredible to me.
I don't miss consuming sugar or salt.
My rings slip a bit.
I have a visible neck.
My face has thinned and I can find my cheek bones.
I don't get indigestion.
The weight I have lost equals TWO of my boys.
I don't snore much (according to Randy, this has dropped dramatically).
I am literally shrinking. As of the last time I was measured, November 11, 2010 I have lost:
Chest: - 5 1/2"
Waist: - 7 1/2"
Hips: - 8 "
Upper Arms: - 1 1/2" - off each
Thighs: - 3" - off each
for a TOTAL OF: 30" GONE!!!
I am absolutely THRILLED with my progress and look forward to reaching my goal in 2011.
I thoroughly believe God sent Cyndi to minister to people like you and me!
I cannot encourage you more . . . If you have weight to lose, call Cyndi!!!
Do it FOR YOU!
