Hi Carolyn,

I emailed you last night … and just came across something on your site which I found very interesting. You noted the following … “For example, there is an exercise out ‘there’ I found in many facial exercise programs. It’s when you put your index fingers in the corners of the mouth and pucker your lips and pull back with the fingers to create resistance. I thought it would be great for attacking the puckers that form in the corners of the mouth. Well…. when I did it for any length of time, it built the muscles around the ‘marionette lines’ in such a way it gave me the look of an ‘ape’.”

As I mentioned last night in my email, I have been doing your program since February, 2009. However, after reading so much online about a competitor’s program, I purchased it approximately 2-3 months ago. I had to see for myself what all the hype was about. I used it for approximately one month, but didn’t care for it as much as your program. At that point I stopped using the competitor’s program and went back to using your program. There were two mouth exercises in the competitor’s program that I liked and decided to continue doing along with your program. I figured doing them couldn’t hurt things and would only excel my progress. Whoa … WAS I EVER WRONG! One of those exercises is exactly what you have described as giving the look of an “ape”. I believe that is exactly the look I have now … ape-like.

I’m so mad at myself for purchasing that other program. I wish I never read about it and just stuck with your program the entire time. Anyway, I wanted to share this with you because I know you take great pride in your program and in the graceful transformation that one can accomplish by using CFF.

As you advised, I will limit my facial exercises to only three times per week for the next month. And, I WILL NOT be doing any other exercises which are not included in your program. Thanks again and I will keep you updated on my progress.

Kim

Update:

Hi Carolyn,

Wanted to send you a quick update. It’s been just shy of three weeks since I contacted you seeking advice for the haggard, tired face I had been seeing in the mirror. I have done exactly what you suggested by limiting my facial exercises to just M-W-F followed by the CFF massage technique. I am totally blown away at how my face has positively responded and how much better things are already looking in such a short period of time. I am constantly looking in the mirror because I can’t believe the improvement I have seen in just a few short weeks. I feel so good about myself and have so much more confidence! I am just ecstatic with the results so far and am so excited about making even more progress as time goes on. … Thanks so much for the advice.

Take care,
Kim
