I received a relevant question in an email recently. A friend asked me if, living recovered, I still count calories. Learn how to escape the time consuming bondage of meticulously counting calories.
In this conversation, I talk more about the similarity between a sexual addiction and an eating disorder and many other addictions or idols. I encourage you to pick up my book for more about this: http://www.amazon.com/The-Predatory-Lies-Anorexia-Survivors/dp/1940784174/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1408147207&sr=8-2&keywords=predatory+lieshttp://www.desiringgod.org/blog/posts/porn-pride-and-praise

Friends, today I want us to look beyond our own pain, our own addictions, losses and broken relationships to a battered and bruised world.
I’ll share with you some specific verses that we can use to focus our hearts in prayer and gain perspective.
When I’ve prayed for and had faith for others, what happens when uncertainty sinks its claws into my life?
I distinctly heard God say, “Do you want to see how you’ll respond when you’ve got unanswerable questions?”
This week, I wonder if you have any idea what you need.
Are you willing to admit that just like everyone else, you need food and rest?
I’ll share with you one of the ways I finally came to terms with that truth and began to overcome anorexia and meet my own physical needs.
This week I’m going to introduce you to 5 weapons you already have against an eating disorder.
And here’s the promised link!
This week I’ll confess to you my obsession with finding the “perfect plan” the one thing that makes me feel like I’m in control and can predict the outcome of my life, be it physically, financially or something else. I’ll confess this, explain the lie behind it and share how you can find peace when you are (as we always are) out of control.
Are you in the business of “body building”? Discover what that actually implies and the better way, the only way, to embrace your body, your fitness, your gifts–God’s gifts to you.
