60 Days

It has been 64 days, since I have stopped overeating & started learning to look to the Lord with all my issues.

I have learned so much about myself & how I had been handling my emotions.

I got my 60 day chip at Celebrate Recovery 3 days ago. It is nice to have the tangible reminder of what I’m working towards.

I’m down 23.9 lbs. All glory to God!

I feel a lot better. I’m on a healthier road now. I know I have a long way to go. But I’m on the road to recovery.

God will get me there. He has never left me. I have put distance between us in the past, but God never went anywhere. I love Him so much. He is all that I need.

Food could never do for me what He can, so why did I even start going back to my old ways?

Total truth. I got scared & instead of going to God, I walked into the kitchen again. It didn’t happen overnight. It was a little extra snack here & some extra bites there. I slowly started to rely on myself & trying to do it all in my own strength. And that proved out to be disastrous.

I have great hope for my future, because God is my King and the one that I can go to with everything. He cares about every aspect of my life. Sometimes I have to be brought back into line with what God wants for me & what is best. I can go astray so easily, which is why it is so important to keep going to God & His Word & His Ways. It’s a daily thing. And in reality, I need to go to Him multiple times a day.

I have to keep going back to the truth, which is God. Then the lies will be torn down with the truth solidly in place.

Thank you, Lord, for not giving up on me. Thank you for continuing to tug at my heart. I want all you have for me. I know this journey is not easy, but I can do all things through Christ. With you, I am not alone. I know that you are constantly with me and giving me strength & wisdom. Thank you for providing what I need at every step. You know me best. Amen.

  1. Brava!!! Keep on keeping your eyes on Him.
    As one who struggled for 12 years with an eating disorder, I know that food can be both an idol and a master. The key for me was believing what the Word of God said about my identity and not what my feelings of low self-esteem (or NO self-esteem) were telling me. When I stood on the Truth, I could live the life He Created me for, and not as a slave to food.
    PS A little math:
    will power = my will + His power 😉
