"He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. Ps. 37:6

For years I struggled with emotional eating. I was either euphoric because I was on a diet and losing weight, or I was in the depths of despair because, once again I'd "fallen off the wagon" and was binging like there was no tomorrow!!! (Y'all know what I mean!)
My turning point arrived in the mail in the form of a book I'd ordered, but later tried to cancel. I know God intended for me to read that book, because it changed my life. The name of the book? When Food is Love, by Geneen Roth.

It was while reading her book that I discovered I had a compulsive eating disorder. And I've been working on recovery ever since...about 12 years. Yep, you read that right, 12 years!!! But it took me years to develop a full blown disorder, so.....

The good news? Today I have a mostly healthy relationship with food (almost everyone eats for emotional reasons sometimes, I just don't beat myself up about it anymore!) and my weight remains fairly stable. However, I would like to lose about 10 more pounds (doesn't that always seem to be the case! LOL)

What I love about this site is it's really helping me refine and put into practice what I've learned during this recovery journey.

So, through God's "amazing grace," I am finally finding peace in my relationship with food and eating. Though still very much a work in progress, the Lord has enabled me to confront my food/eating challenges and food no longer controls my life!

Indeed, I am most "Blessed by His Amazing Grace!"

My GRACE is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness. 2Cor. 12:9

If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast." Psalm 139: 9-10
