|This is me four years ago, sprawled out in the waters of St. Barts. It was one of the most peaceful, most contented moments I can remember.|
I have been willing to try something different and by the grace of some power greater than myself, it is working today. I accept that tomorrow may bring something different. It just takes one compulsive bite to trigger the addiction. The difference is, today I have faith that being "in the food," is not where I am meant to be. I am not meant to be paralyzed by shame and guilt, shutting out the world as I retreat to the safety of my couch, television and food. I will go to any length to be free of the disease of compulsive overeating. Today, this means abstaining from sugar.
I am meant to live a deliberate life full of purpose. And we can do this, even if we sometimes, or often times find solace in excess food.
