Binge eating, emotional eating, skipping meals…. why do we do these things? Pain. We are trying to numb or avoid pain. It is because we feel unloved, not valued.
Many times, Food issues are our “drug of choice” when dealing with past and present hurts and fears. So, how do we find freedom from this bondage? We turn to God! Knowing and believing we are loved by the Almighty propels us to turn to Him vs food to fill that void.
It is also beneficial to turn to those who can keep us accountable or those we can trust. We can ask for help and surround ourselves with those that will encourage and support us.
