  1. Great video. I love the “plan” idea. That’s like making the decision to eat well ONCE a day and then the rest is just execution. I’ll bet it’s easier on the grocery budget too…planned meals are always cheaper in the Heinecke house.

  2. I eat my feelings. Always have.

    I could swim in your wisdom all day. I think I am going to do this on my blog as well. Honestly, totally freaked out by this and letting go of food and holding on to God. Like detox freaked out right now.

    But I also feel very connected and know that if you can do it so can I. I love you!

  3. Hi Cindy I just have to tell you how much I love you! Love the new videos! Love your honesty, love your vulnerability. Can’t wait until the next time I get to spend time with you! You are such an amazing woman!

  4. cindy, you are such a sweet heart and i am so blessed to have you in my life! i love all of the videos of your precious family, and today’s video touched my heart deeply. we are all in bondage. me having recently found out what my bondage is — worry, pride and fear concerning money — i feel your pain.
    but you are so right!
    the Lord is good to set us free from our entrapments, and i look forward to the day where my struggle IN THAT AREA is less and my victory in Christ is MORE!!!!!!
    praying for you, and you know i’m not just sayin’ that!!
    love you!!!

  5. Thank you for doing the video! I love that you plan the night before. I would have never thought to do this.

    Next time give us what you might eat during the day=)

    By the way you look really good with no make up.

  6. Good GRACIOUS…I’ll just pop my head in there in your place…GIRL you are speaking my language…I denied myself food in order to justify eating what I wanted…nothing all day and FEAST at dinner…trigger food….comfort food, and that goes back to the issues that I’m overcoming too. I’ve battled this for YEARS and finally we’ve found a plan that makes sense to me….

    I love the PLAN idea…we are doing a similar thing..I plan the day out and that’s it. I’m a list person, so if it’s not on the list I can see it’s not allowed.
    I’m accountable and for the first time I feel in control..and THAT is the best feeling!
    Stripping off ALL that hinders…even if it is chocolate chip cookie dough! 🙂
    you are wonderful for doing this!

  7. Cindy,
    That really spoke to me, I feel like I know you, through Dusty, but the video was the best way to share, you were right! It spoke volumns to me. I use to get away with indulging, until menopause. Now I have put on way too much, feel tired all the time, back hurts. What you shared, gave me hope that I can too plan out my meals. I have been in weight watchers before, but didn’t stick to it. But I need to be accountable to someone! Thank you for who you are, soooo real! Lynn, in Williamson, Georgia
    ps. I have enjoyed many of your blogs, and Chris’s! Blessings!

  8. I can’t leave you hanging out there all exposed and all without throwing in a towel. Shoooot! You’re brave, not only did you share this but you did it on video (I won’t be that brave).
    I suffer(ed) from anorexia. When I was 38 years old I weighed 85 pounds. I was hospitalized and well, I think you get the picture. Our church recently joined other churches for a 21 day fast. Because of my tendency to make everything about food and gaining or losing – I can’t fast food (pardon the pun). Maybe one day or so but it’s just too fresh even still. The difficult thing with me is that at the root of all my issues is this: I’m an addict and I just trade off one addiction for another. I quit smoking at the end of my fast (He probably did most of the work). It ain’t easy, is it, darlin’? I just pray for anyone who has these types of issues that God gently uproots the cause and replants His own seed in place.

  9. Cindy,

    I can completely relate to what you shared and want to thank you for your openness and honesty about such a common issue for women. I have been making my change since the second week in January.

    I am watching the calorie and fat intake in my food choices. The meal plan is very helpful. I also started walking during my lunch break at work every day that weather permits. Of course this week we have the icy roads in Oklahoma, so I was unable to walk outside… however I did get some exercise in while watching The Biggest Loser tonight.

    The thing that has been motivating me is “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13 Just when the thought creeps in that I can’t do this or that it is too hard, I quickly try to replace those thoughts with Philippians 4:13.

    Thank you so much for sharing this process with us.


  10. Thank you for this. I just love and so appreciate your honesty. We all struggle with our issues and it is wonderful that you are able to share yours. The plan sounds like a really good idea, knowing what you are going to be eating each day. I believe Weight Watchers is a great plan. I have lost weight on it in the past.
