This is a terrible cycle. I know I am not the only one who struggles with this. I fall into these episodes where I sneak food and eat as much as I possibly can. It can last days or weeks at a time. I like to eat by myself so no one can judge how much I am eating. I have been struggling with this for most of my life. I am at a point now that I am ready to get control of my binging tendancies. Now, I'm not saying that I won't ever fall into this trap again - I have to be realistic. But I feel in my heart that I am ready to give this destructive behavior up. I am tired of always fighting with myself. I want to feel love when I think about food, not guilt or shame or sadness. God gave us food to nurture our bodies. He gave us nutrition to make us strong and to make us feel good and healthy. I am a woman of faith and I want to honor God with a healthy body.
So this Sunday I will commit to overcoming this. Again, realistically, I can't say I will never binge again. I will, however, do my best to honor God with a healthy body. I will use food as fuel, not a coping mechanism.
I hope your doing well in your journey. Stay strong. You can do this. So can I. :)
