In November of 2015 I sought out some counseling regarding some parenting issues i was having with one of my children. What I did not know when I walked into that room was that God had another plan. What I thought was about my child, God was going to use to bring healing in my life. In the weeks and months that followed the Lord began layer by layer revealing to me the issues and strongholds in my life that were affecting every part of me and holding me back from all that He saw me to be. FREE!
I am not gonna lie this has been one of the hardest things I have had to push through in my life. But I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
There is no way that I could give all the intricate details of my recovery process but I would like to mention a few things that for me were key in helping me.
First I sought out Therapy from an amazing Women of God.
Then after months of digging deep, I did the Whole 30 . It was my way of doing a 30 day rehab program from bingeing. It was during this time that I came across brain over binge a book by Kathryn Hansen and her journey to healing from Binge eating and Bulimia. I also came across a Lifestyle Coach, Linda Wente, and her own Journey recovering from Bingeing. You Can find it here. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxnTaOjFwBjlF6QxcwsD2_g . When I was finished with the Whole 30 I felt amazing then two days after I finished I freaked out. How am I supposed to eat ? What does normal eating look like? I wanted so badly to go back into my Whole 30 box where I was safe and followed all the rules. And that is when The Lord lead me to a book called Intuitive eating which I am currently reading and learning how to eat normal.
My recovery is on going and as the days , months and years pass my prayer is to share that part of my life with you.
