Change your mind. Change your life.


"I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand" -- Psalm 40:1-2 (NIV)

What is Recovery?
Written by a Woman in Recovery

Wearing clothes I want because I feel comfortable, pretty, or sexy in them.
Admiring body parts for their shape, curves, function.
Eating when hungry and stopping when satisfied.
Going out to restaurants and ordering what I want, not because I feel deprived or because I feel I should be "good," but because I really want something.
Exercising for the sheer fun of body movement. Sometimes eating more for comfort or other reasons, and sometimes eating less.....but being aware of why. Being happy with my body even if I'm not at the size I think I should be at.
Enjoying where I am now and enjoying the process of learning to change what I want to change. Dressing for myself only...not to please anyone else.
Talking about subjects other that food, size, or diets with other women. Not wondering if other people don't like me because of my body size because I am more than a size.
I am a compassionate, caring, intelligent, energetic, loving, playful, artistic woman.
And recovery for me, with my history of Binge Eating Disorder, is sometimes forgetting about food altogether because I am living my life.

Inside Out
The Lord works from the inside out. The world works from the outside in.
The world would take people out of the slums. Christ takes the slums out of people,

And they take themselves out of the slums.
The world would mold men by changing their environment,

Christ changes men who then change their environment.
The world would shape human behavior, but Christ can change human nature.
-- Ezra Taft Benson
