Can Food Be Destructive?

I never thought of food as being addictive or destructive, like alcohol or heroin, because food is necessary and good. Food never… Ruined a marriage Effected our kids. Made us unhealthy. Made us feel shame. Became a substitute for happiness.     Or so I thought until I became familiar with Thin Within. I started thinking […]

Master of My Plate

When I joined a Thin Within online class, Heidi Bylsma asked me to blog about my journey. I’m glad she did. Her request required me go the distance. I had to read the lessons, participate in the online discussion, and apply the principles in order to write about my experience. Unlike previous attempts to lose […]

Are You Stuck?

I dreamt of an elephant.  He was held captive by a chain, secured around one leg, and attached to a tent peg. Did that elephant symbolize me? Struggling to walk in the freedom of Christ? Imagine then, when I read the TW Lesson on Forgiveness. The words I’d pondered popped off the page. But first, let […]

Stay in the Lines

“Try to stay inside the lines,” said my teacher when I colored the picture of an an apple. “Stay inside the yard,” warned my mother me when I went outside to play. As a people-pleaser and big-time rule keeper, I complied. And that mindset colored my Christian faith. “What are the rules? Where are the lines? […]

Words Have Weight

Whatever struggle or pain I face, God has a plan, and He has good for my soul…but it may not feel good for a while or in the way I expect. Comforting myself outside His boundaries for me will feel good for a moment or few, but it won’t BE good for me.

Battle of the Binge

My recent loss with the Battle of the Binge—and the TW Lesson on Gideon—showed me three things when it comes to losing and maintaining weight.  First, I had to admit that controlling my appetite is an ongoing battle. I’m not sprinting towards a blue ribbon at the end of a twelve-week course. Food surrounds me […]

Weight A Second

Standing on the scale, I watched the digital numbers escalate while my weight was calculated. The final number made me cringe. How can I exercise all week, control my appetite, and not lose an ounce? Weeks earlier, I faced two choices: Lose weight or buy a bigger pair of pants. I elected to change my […]

Looking for Victory?

Am I alone in thinking this Thin Within journey is like the kids’ board game, Chutes and Ladders? Move your pawn forward to a particular space, then shoot up the ladder onto victory. Or land on a bad space (like eating too many cookies) and the pawn slides down the chute cause you have a […]

Stress Makes Me Munch

I admit I’ve eaten when I’m lonely or bored, but stressed? Never thought about it until I flew with my husband. We own a Taildragger plane, but I rarely fly with him because it STRESSES me out. So imagine when he flew me further than my own backyard this past weekend. The stress in my […]

Sick to My Stomach with Self-Condemnation

“Why did you eat that? When will you ever learn? How can God love you?” Those are some of the nagging, ugly voices in someone’s head who wrestles with Self-Condemnation. They’re stuck. Unable to let go of their mistakes and sin. Or they view themselves as an ongoing failure. I’ve been there. Sick to my stomach […]
