What’s your relationship like with food?
Let’s be raw and real because being transparent and vulnerable is profoundly powerful!!!
I know that our society puts so much pressure on us to look a certain way and that can be overwhelming. BECAUSE all of us were created with different beautiful, fabulous body types. However due to the media, the expectation for a woman to look a certain way is heightened and fantasized.
Therefore, when we do not know our value, our worth or identity then it can be challenging to not compare yourself to what society says is beautiful.
When I was in high school, I struggled with an eating disorder for three years. I started having an eating disorder after I tore all the ligaments in my ankle and I couldn’t play sports anymore due to the injury. Only 5% of people who have this injury, have to have surgery and I was in that 5%. Since I couldn’t play basketball or volleyball anymore, I was afraid of the weight I would gain and what I would become.
MY EATING DISORDER STARTED BECAUSE OF FEAR!!!
In the midst of this, I started modeling, and I also entered into an abusive relationship.
I was searching for acceptance, value and worth. WE ARE ALL searching for value and acceptance, and since I didn’t know who I was, and I didn’t know my worth or value I found value in the way I looked!! The eating disorder became an addiction that completely controlled my life.
I went to counseling to heal from the abusive relationship, and the eating disorder, but nothing changed…… And the hell my family went through, because of my destructive lifestyle brought confusion, anger, and frustration.
THE ONLY WAY I OVERCAME THIS ADDICTION
I gave my life to the Lord when I was 17, THEN everything started changing, but it was a process!! As I Learned the truth of who I am, that I am accepted, loved, called, redeemed, forgiven and created for divine purpose…. I was able to let go of my need for control, and let God heal me from the inside out!!!!
I realized that until I knew who I was and understood my value and worth… Nothing would change. It was WHEN I discovered and believed the truth that I was able to unlock the prison that I had been living in for three years.
