When I was young, I was heavyset and shy. I thought that being thin would finally make me beautiful and get the attention that I so desperately wanted.
I began making rules for eating – whether it was only being able to eat liquids, not solids, or not eating after 4pm. It was no longer about fitting it. Eating made life miserable. Searching for control in my internally reckless life, I did not feel that I could control being shy, but I felt that I could control food.
I prayed that God would help me find a way out of this. God brought others into my life that gave me clear directions and helped me change my mind about whom I was and where my identity lied.
Coming full circle, I have now found my hope and trust in God. Trusting in the Lord, I now use my story to encourage and help others.
