I want to find joy in living. In my family. My faith. Through living well and BIG and fun. I don't want to be a slave to this. As someone who has been overweight or obese for most of my adult life, for me it all comes back to food. Instead of feeling like I'm missing out, I'm now simply focused on feeding myself nutritious food that sustains me to live the life that I've been called to. That's what this is about. Yes, it's ok to enjoy food. But to mindlessly shove it in, without a thought, living in constant guilt from the last binge? No thanks.
Now repeat after me: "I am NOT a mindless eating machine! I am a person of worth!"
And the beautiful thing is, it's a new day tomorrow. And every day.
