    My Story



    At 43 years old, my daughter was off to college and my son had just gotten his driver’s license. It was MY time, finally. I decided to take up tennis to lose the 30 extra pounds I had carried around for the last ...well since my son was born. I couldn’t believe how much I loved tennis. I met a great group of women and I was back being active outside, I felt young again. I joined a tennis team and for a year I was having the time of my life, playing 5-6 times a week, for 3-4 hours at a time...I lost about 10 pounds, not as much as I expected, but it was something. Then at regional playoffs, I felt something happen to my knee. Injury...Oh NO!!! I couldn’t play for months, I couldn’t even walk the dog. I could only sit or lie down...I watched TV all day, ate comfort foods and gained more weight. No tennis and no tennis friends. I was isolated and depressed. I was also scared...maybe at this age I won’t ever fully heal. I finally consulted with one of the best orthopedic surgeons in town (the one all the tennis players go to). He confirmed I had torn cartilage and he recommended surgery. I saw him 2 more times. During my third appointment he said to me, “I can tell you’re not going to have the surgery (he was right, I was too scared), but you have got to stop gaining weight, every pound of body weight is 3 pounds of impact on your knee.” Whoa!!! That one sentence flipped a switch inside of me. There was something I could do. I was expecting the pain medication, physical therapy or surgeon to heal me. By this time I was back to carrying around 30 extra pounds...that’s 90 extra pounds of impact on my knees! Right then I chose to take my power back. I was going to do everything I could to lose weight and reduce the impact on my knees. Eventually I was successful.

     

    I learned A LOT along the way:

     

    1 - You can’t exercise away excess weight.

    2 - Diets don’t work. You hear this all the time...it’s true.

    3 - Symptoms tell you to stop doing something and cravings tell you to start doing something...In the past I tried to ignore or get rid of these all important signs from my body.

    4 - Question whether what everyone else is doing is actually what you should be doing. I learned to listen to my body instead of to other people.

    5 - Choice is Powerful… You can choose to suffer or you can choose to heal. When you make the choice to take your power back, your health, life and future is in your own hands.

     

    I’m now 55. I have been at my ideal weight for the past 11 years. I have no knee pain and I’ve never had surgery. I walk, hike, play pickleball and ride horses. I am in control of my health. I feel limitless. I’m excited about my future. I say YES to life. I have also found joy in sharing what I have learned with other women. Living your Best Life is a choice… YouChoose. If you are an active woman who is suffering with excess weight and knee pain and you’re ready to take your power back, I can help you and I would be honored to go on this journey with you.

          Senea Garriquez

          I decided to work with Cindy as my health coach because of her confidence in making me feel I could do it, even when I really didn’t think I could reach my goal due to how far I had to go. My goals were to establish a healthy eating lifestyle/routine; to plan ahead and prep for my meals for the week and to create an exercise routine that would fit my busy schedule so that I would be able to lose 30 lbs and feel good in my own skin. Cindy was a great fit for me. The most helpful part of working with her as my coach was being held accountable in a very safe non-judgmental and caring way. My name is Senea Garriquez. I am a 35 year old female. I stand about 5.6” When I first started the program I weighed 200 pounds. I suffered from inflammation of the body, knee pain, ankle pain, fatigue, trouble sleeping, anxiety and nosebleeds. I also had a lack of motivation. I was unhappy with the way I physically looked. I am now embracing and enjoying self care and balance. Cindy not only kept track of my progress and obstacles or challenges, she helped me get organized and find ways to accomplish my goals. She has also taught me how to handle and successfully negotiate bumps and hurdles on my path along the way. In such a very short period of time, I have traveled so far in my journey of self-care, happiness, and balance. Cindy you have taught me more than you will ever know and I will forever be grateful and appreciative. Your cooking ideas and the guidance with the food choices you taught are amazing and delicious. I will never go back to my old eating habits. I have much more appreciation for food then I ever did. I like your straight up style. You are real and authentic! You're a super good listener and a “tell it like it is” person. You're easy to talk to and down to earth. You're always available to answer all my questions. I am now 30 pounds lighter. But most importantly, I have returned to doing activities I had to stop doing, and now I feel more comfortable in my body. I can't wait to see what my continued weight loss and increased activity yields. I will be better able to care for others which brings me great joy. Thank you for all you do and for the magic ways of delivering messages that I have previously not been able to or ready to receive. Part of my journey now is to share the kindness and care you have shown me to others and pay it forward by continuing to grow in your self-care development. CINDY IS A WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE.


          Odeyca Garriquez

          My name is Odeyca Garriquez, aka (OG) I am 46 years old. I have lost 30 pounds since April without even going to the gym. For many years I tried a different diet program, but I was never really committed 100% to it; due to health, personal issues and a very busy social lifestyle. I allowed this to set me back to the point that I became very inconsistent and I was not in control of my life. I realized I was the heaviest and the unhappiest I have ever been. I was so uncomfortable with my whole self. I had completely lost the balance of my life in general. I was lost. I was having constant abdominal issues, trouble sleeping, body aches, joint pain, inflammation, foggy thoughts and extreme irritability not to mention hormone imbalance, stress and excessive alcohol drinking and eating to mask all of the above. On several occasions Cindy talked to me about getting back on track, but I was not ready. I kept finding 1 million excuses. My whole self was just toxic, but I did not realize it. All of a sudden it just happened. On April 6, 2020, I was ready. I made the best decision that I could have for my body, mind and spirit. I was ready to meet with Cindy and start my route to 160. At the time I was 200 pounds. I started working with Cindy and what an amazing journey it has been. It was challenging in the beginning, but worth it every second of it. The way Cindy coaches, she tackles everything. Cindy is such a special human being. She is so gifted. She is beyond passionate about what she does. She surrenders herself to her clients, she is selfless. She does not hold back, she is kind and stern at the same time. She keeps you going. She is reliable. She has earned the “Super Coach” title. This program is one of those things in life that makes you say, I wish I would have done this a long time ago, but in reality it sure happens at the right time, when you are ready. Now here I am, 30 pounds lighter and feeling so powerful. I am loving great healthy food, appreciating water so much, and I have been more disciplined in taking care of my temple, “ MY WHOLE.” I am back in control of my life. I am looking forward to keep on going and maintaining my balance because I have proclaimed that this is my new way of life. I am loving life and I am in love with it. I am beyond grateful to my Super Coach, Cindy Eller. She sure knows how to deliver. Her program is 100% real and I am not joking. I would like to become an ambassador of Cindy’s Eller program. I want to tell the world about it because it is needed. I am proof that her coaching works.

          Before Cindy became my personal health coach she first was one of my most trusted friends. Today I have the best of both worlds. Cindy is not only a true friend, but she is a powerful and encouraging health advisor who works with me as an individual to set reasonable lifestyle goals through healthy eating and positive and consistent feedback. In 12 weeks I lost 20 inches!
