Well, where do I begin? I will honestly say that this still
isn't the easiest thing for me to talk about, but I have overcome this and I will do all that I can to help others as well.
You probably notice the song playing in the background,
wow. The first time I heard this song "Mirror" by Barlow Girl; well, it floored me. I heard it for the first time
as a 30 yr old woman and it tugged at that innermost string in my heart that remembers the pain of an eating
disorder. It is the mirror that tries to tell us who we are, but that's not how it's supposed to be. I had my story
of what I went through with an eating disorder up on this page for years and now I've decided to do something a little different.
I will email you my personal story if you request it. There is a link on the page that if you click and put in the subject
line of your email "please send me your ED story" and I'll send it your way and I won't even harrass you, lol.
I know it's important to hear someone else's journey down the same path you may feel you're headed, are on or are thinking
of going on. It's a nightmare, it's a sick sick cycle, but there is a light that can lead the way if you let
Him. His name is JESUS Christ. He should be our mirror. When we see him we should see things we display
in our own character. We need to be like Him, our character, the love we display and courage, strength, passion...that
needs to be us. When we begin focusing on others, loving others, praying for others, helping others, then that mirror
and what it tries to tell us just isn't all that important anymore. I'm not saying that it's not important to look your
best and be healthy, BUT, obsessing about it and labeling yourself and your future by what you look like is completely
really going to cause you to miss out on LIFE! So, c'mon, grab my hand.. go ahead and I ain't gonna bite ya...let me
help you, let me introduce you to my counselor, my friend, my Savior, Jesus Christ. If you already know Jesus,
yet still struggle with the issue of an eating disorder, well, ((raising my hand))) yeah, been there done that. I'm not
gonna lie, I've struggled over time with those ugly monsters, they try to come back. They know I was weak there once
and they will try and try, but we have to remain strong. If we fall, it doesn't mean we fail. Notice the difference
in the spelling of those words; it's because they're two different things. FALLING does NOT equal failing.
Just get up, dust yourself off, call out to Jesus and allow Him to help you. Email me, I'll pray with you.
THE SOLUTION TO ALL PROBLEMS ~~~~~~~~~~~ I will
just get to the point.In April 2001, I found the solution to EVERY problem in my life. Jesus Christ, the HEALER, REDEEMER,
FRIEND, SAVIOR, and, LORD! Once I invited Him into my heart, His love smothered out the ugly faces of bulemia and anorexia.
Why? Because everything,EVERYTHING, HAS to bow down to Christ our Lord! (EVEN Anorexia and Bulemia!) Praise God! (alot of
people don't realize that when we all finally do just humble ourselves to Him, he blesses us so so so very much!) I say
with 100% confidence and faith that ANYTHING, and I do mean ANYTHING, that may come against me to try to tear me down or hurt
me WILL FAIL, because the one who is IN me and the one who I can do all things through, Jesus Christ our Lord, will ALWAYS
prevail! Glory to God!
HEY! I just want to say that to anyone who may be considering
'trying' bulemia or anorexia, DON'T! I don't care how glamorous some people make it look or how easy some people make it sound,
it's vicious, ugly, hurtful, and it WILL KILL YOU! If you want to see someone beautiful, don't go look on the cover of Cosmopolitan
Magazine, check out that person in the mirror! Now THAT'S true Beauty! God made us all as unique individuals. If we were all
the same size, shape, color, personality, then HOW in the world would we be able to tell people apart!?! I love who I am NOW
and Always and I know that kind of true inner love is not possible without Jesus! Here are a couple of links to some Eating
Disorder sights. I will say that these pro-anorexia sites that people have made up now are just plain sick and are a work
of the enemy! They try to glamorize this sickness, and in fact, it is ugly ugly ugly! Live life to the fullest, go through
the storms and trust in God!
