I have to consistently give God control over my eating and exercise habits. I am in recovery from anorexia but even though I may appear better because I don’t look sick anymore, I still battle with the thoughts. I want to be free from the eating disorder. I hold onto it because I find identity in it, and I desire to have control over that part of my life. But God is freeing me. Every time I lay my submit to Him, He meets me and breaks more chains.

  • Recovering

    Thank you so much for sharing this. Food – or perhaps eating? weight? my body? is also my anything. Even recovery, abstinence from binge eating, the eating disorder itself as well as recovery from the eating disorder. It’s all one package that I can’t name very well but it’s definitely my “anything” (or everything)
