The BUDDY System
Weight loss and the lifestyle changes are sometimes easier when learning with a friend. Find a friend who also wants to lose weight and share the cost but double the benefit. Sometimes having two people at a weight loss consult, brings up questions and answers that make the whole process easier.
Cindy realizes that sometimes it is the emotional support and accountability that is the most important and in this regard she can email, as needed, without additional charge. However, if you want closer email communication that requires more attention– to accurately and carefully respond, particularly regarding supplements–one of Cindy's packages, One Month-Jump Start or the Three Month Wellness may work for you. Otherwise, lengthy email questions should be saved for a scheduled appointment.
