Ahhh sorry you guys, I'm 15 minutes late. Tomorrow my friend @nebluea will take care of my posting for my till I get back July 4th. Love you all!
Thank you so much for reading! ❤️
Sometimes life is v hard and things just do not make sense. I am in a season of that as I type. So in this season it is crucial to celebrate any and all victories. And this may sound stupid, but bear with me. A year ago today, I started a fairly well-known weight management program (Weight Watchers...judge if you want) because I just could not get a grip on my relationship with food. Any time I was upset or happy or frustrated, I would eat. A lot. Food was my go to. And when I'd eat, I'd hate myself because all I wanted to do was lose weight. It was all I thought about. What I weighed then and what I weigh now don't matter so much, but what DOES matter is that I felt helpless and like I would never be able to get over my fear of eating, then the subsequent guilt I would feel from overeating. But now, by the grace of God, I don't feel the need to ask every person in my life "did I eat too much today?" as I list off all of the things I ate, and I haven't in some time. Weight Watchers helped me get there, and I am so grateful to the Lord that He used it to help me through a struggle that persisted for the majority of my adolescent years into adulthood. I'll blog about it more some other time, but be encouraged - if you read this and think "shoot dang I feel that every day," you are not alone. And you are not hopeless. Food is awesome, and there is a way to consume it without it ruling your thoughts and your emotions. Starving is not the answer, and neither is binging; there is a beautiful place in the middle. If I found it, anyone can.
