I’ve done some pretty cool things in my lifetime. Yeah, sure. My lifetime of seventeen years. But I’m not going to lie; I’ve accomplished some things that I’m really proud of. However, I realize that my proudest moments are the ones brought to me by God. He gave me whatever was necessary to succeed, whether it was the confidence and clarity at a speech & debate meet, the inspiration and words for an essay (or blog post :), the wisdom and knowledge for an important test, the list goes on. Think about your greatest accomplishment. How old were you? What did you do leading up to that moment? How did you feel after it happened? Who helped you achieve what you did?

When I look at those milkshakes, I think of God. I think of how He helped me become a free girl that can enjoy every last bit of that treat without regret. I think of the fun moment I shared with my parents, choosing our flavors and making the homemade treat together. I didn’t think about how many calories it had or how I’d burn it off later. I just enjoyed it. But a few months ago, that milkshake would have been my downfall. Continue reading “Free from Food: How I overcame obsessive thoughts”
