How I feel right now?
How I feel right now?
Have you ever had that excited feeling when you know something good is around the corner but you haven’t seen it yet? I’m getting this year especially after a hard year of battle and victory. After this podcast with Taylor, that feeling came back strong. It’s not just a feeling; I have SEEN God work in my life and transform my mind about: food, exercise, running, my need to STOP calorie counting, my need to rest and not over tax my body (still working on this one), and my need to look at my body (NOT as what the mirror says), but what God says about it.
That’s what this podcast is about. It’s about that full recovery of eating what you want to eat, moving for God’s glory NOT for burning calories, and it is me saying, ‘I love taking a rest day, because it makes my body feel stronger.’
It is the excitement of the final steps to recovery, smelling the victory Jesus Christ wins and is winning over EVERY aspect of your eating disorder.
Today we dove into:
Taylor’s Posts about Recovery:
Be Transformed By The Renewing of Your Minds
Romans 8:37, ‘Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.’
Calorie counting is something that I used to be very rigid about; I wouldn’t just ‘eye’ things. I would want to be as precise as possible and even count the gum calories I ate. But it was hard; it’s hard to live like that, because you feel crazy around food (of which you don’t know how to calculate the ‘exact’ calories.) That’s why this post is all about the simple, concrete steps I’m challenging myself to every day so that I won’t just stay in this rut.
When you calorie count it’s not an easy habit to just ditch; it’s a process; I’m learning that. Each day there are steps, there are weapons to take out and fight this battle.

Hypothalamic amenorrhea. What is the definition of this condition? It’s a term that I’ve learned a bit about especially after struggling with it for 10+ years.
This is the definition of that I picked up from off of Google,
‘Hypothalamic amenorrhea is a condition in which menstruation stops for several months due to a problem involving the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is in the center of the brain and controls reproduction. It produces gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH).’
I’m not going to go into the science of it, because I’m not a nutritionist, dietitian, doctor, nurse, nurse practitioner, and I want you to go to your health practitioners for practical advice on what you’re supposed to do if you’re wrestling with this.
I am a very ordinary girl. I’m 24, but if you met me, you wouldn’t believe me. I am passionate about girls finding true beauty in Christ. I love peanut butter, icecream, and salad. My hobbies are cooking, baking, sharing laughs and tears with others, and sharing the fullness of joy that Christ has put in me. I love reading other blogs, and I hope that this will be a place where you can find encouragement, recipes, smiles, and joy. Click here to read more about me...
