Hi My name is Karen And welcome to my Blog!!
A little bit about me…….
I have four amazing kids who keep me on my toes ( and on my knees). 🙂
I am married to an amazing man who loves and encourages me in everything I do. In fact I would not be where I am today had he not walked into my life 20 years ago. He is a source of strength for me and loves and accepts me for who I am (thighs and all) .
I always thought I am not the face of a women who has an eating disorder and struggles with food. As a person I come across as having a huge amount of will power and self discipline. But the truth is I do have a problem and I am the face of that women who struggles. Because she is your friend , your sister, your mother and your wife.
I have struggled with disordered eating in the form of binge eating for 3o years and I have lived with the shame and guilt that comes with keeping this a secret from my family and friends. Along with the binge eating was an intense hatred for myself , such low self esteem that it effected every area of my life.
And I want you to know you are not alone.
Part of my recovery is starting this blog and helping other women and girls just like me know that there is hope and you don’t have to live the rest of your life in bondage. It will be hard but it will get better. And here in this place , these darn thighs, we will support and inspire each other to” Strip off every weight that slows us down and Run with endurance the race God has set before us. ” Hebrews 12:1
I hope my page leaves you feeling empowered to become the best version of you to bring Glory to God.
Join me on my journey to overcoming disordered eating and negative body image.
