“Full recovery from eating disorders is possible”

Many of us who have struggled with eating disorders know that going through a recovery program once or working through food issues during one period of life often doesn’t last forever. What I mean is that recovery is riddled with slip-ups, relapses, temptations, triggers, etc. 

I came across this article by Becky Henry last week and just the title alone has been an encouragement to me! FULL RECOVERY FROM EATING DISORDERS IS POSSIBLE. Those are words I don’t hear enough. I usually just hear (or think): this is something I will struggle with my whole life. Although this thinking is realistic for some, I think that at times it can quench the Spirit’s fire and God’s healing powers. I’m still trying to grasp what recovery from an ED really looks like, but in the midst of this battle it is very encouraging to read the words that full recovery (whatever it may mean) is possible.

The exciting first post

Hello world of blogging!

To be quite honest, I’m actually not the biggest fan of blogs. I feel like there are too many out there. Information overload, anyone? People just ramble on and on about who knows what with a bunch of unchecked facts and bad grammar. (No offense, I’m sure YOUR blog is not like this.) But enough with the blog bitterness. 

Last weekend I spent a good amount of time listening to the Lord and He (She?) gave me an idea. I don’t plan to share tons of details about my personal life here, but I will tell you a couple things. First, I have actively struggled with eating disorders since I was very young. Second, I love the Lord and believe that He wants to redeem and transform these struggles. Third, I think there are a lot of people out there in the same boat as me, and there aren’t a lot of resources in the midst of all the “pro-eating disorder” sites on the net. 

So my hope (and dare I say, calling) is to share resources, insights, and encouragement to those who are struggling with eating disorders or have loved ones going through this. Stay tuned for more stuff!
