Here I sit seven years after writing "Weightless...". What a journey I have been on. I have been free from the food stronghold of bulimia and compulsive overeating...numbing my emotions with food....for over 20 years...a place where I never could image that I would be. In the midst of those years (over 20 of diets, and 14 of bulimia), I thought that was the way it was going to be for the rest of my life...which really would have been the death of me. I was not only slowly killing my physical body, but I was killing my spirit. It truly is a miracle that I am alive today to share my story, my story of pain, and how I believed that food and the perfect pant size or number on the scale was the key to happiness. I was living a lie.
Today, I have found the key...the key to joy, freedom, inner peace, comfort...or should I say that the key found me. The day I screamed out to the Lord to make Himself real to me was the day He entered my heart and began to piece me back together..."peace by peace".
To you....who just happened to click on this blog....I pray for you, and want to tell you that you will be free of whatever food stronghold you may have...whether it is anorexia, bulimia, or compulsive overeating. Believe me that it is not who you are, even though it may be consuming your every minute. I walked that walk, and weary I became. Boy do I wish that road was shorter. The best part of my battle was that it lead me to my Lord, and I pray that you too will meet the key, to unlock the door of the bondage that you are in.
