2012 Update!!


Monday, February 20, 2012

As some of you know, I have an eating disorder which transformed into a powerful addiction throughout my life. 42 days ago, I decided to listen to God's wisdom and let go of my "drugs." Abstaining from sugar, white flour, caffeine, all of my trigger foods, and the obsessive eating behaviors that controlled my life. In 42 days of abstinence I have lost 34.5 inches from my physical body and 12 billion pounds from my once insane, "junkie" mind. I am working Step 4 of the 12 Step Program, which I used to fear. Through that program, I have a sponsor and am a sponsor to someone else. I love my counselor, who I was afraid to meet for years. I am going to college, yet that's something I never thought I'd do. I now talk to my father regularly; he is someone I had shut out of my life and we never had a relationship. I forgave my mom for not meeting my unrealistic standards of what a mother should be, and have accepted her for the beautiful person she is, where she's at in life. I stare in the mirror and am no longer disgusted, but proud of that woman I see looking back. She's changing. She gets it. She's alive. :)

  Wow, what a beautiful entry this is. And wrote it on my 51st birthday. There is so much in it that applies to me as well and I am going to take strength and motivation from it.
Bless you!
