As Cindy Gibbons' business venture threatened to collapse, the needle on her scales rose. It was a pattern that had been repeated too often in her life. But now with her doctor describing her as 'morbidly obese' and her marriage also in tatters, Cindy knew there would be no more chances. Her life had to change for good. A documentary crew filmed her attempts to lose weight over a period of a year and has continued to record her life journey. Cindy: Breaking the Cycle tells the fascinating story of Cindy Gibbons, a successful local businesswoman who has overcome extreme challenges in her life. She has deliberately set out to break the many negative cycles that have restrained the lives of generations of women in her family, including her mother and her daughter. The owner of three 'Precious Vessels' stores, specialising in clothing for larger women, Cindy was once an unemployed solo mother living in West Auckland and associating with criminals. She has been extraordinarily successful in her weight-loss and personal goals and in November 2001 completed 80 kilometres in the Taupo round-the-lake cycle race. Cindy:Breaking the Cycle is a brave, moving and uplifting account of one woman's struggles against the odds.Cindy: Breaking the Cycle tells the fascinating story of Cindy Gibbons, a successful local businesswoman who has overcome extreme challenges in her life.
