This is a podcast episode I've been wanting to do for a long time. I guess it's appropriate that I finally made the commitment to do it after publishing my new Freedom from Procrastination Bible Study!
In the podcast, I'll share my own weight loss journey and how God set me free from the control of food. Overeating and weight gain was an issue in my life from the time I was in high school until I was writing my first book, Freedom from Emotional Eating, in 2006.
I published that book in 2008 and at the time I worried I would gain my weight back and be embarrassed that I had written a book on how to gain freedom from Emotional Eating! I didn't realized that I ate for procrastination and whenever I set out to write, I felt like procrastinating! It was disconcerting to be writing on weight loss and feeling like breaking boundaries while writing.
Thankfully, God has kept me on the straight and narrow and I have continued to live free from the control of food. I've found that it's a much more peaceful way to live and -- surprisingly -- a more fun way to live! Overeating may be fun in the moment but eating with control leads to a much more fun life.
It's take me hundreds of truth journal entries to break free from the control of food, but that freedom has been long-lasting. If you'd like to hear more about my journey and how God set me free, listen to today's podcast episode.
