Comment on Should I Give up Dessert Forever? by Heleen https://www.blogeatingdisorder.com/should-i-give-up-dessert-forever/#comment-198783 Wed, 06 Jan 2016 00:45:27 +0000 http://www.blogeatingdisorder.com/blog/?p=618#comment-198783 In reply to Kate.

Hi Kate
I agree that moderation (instead of abstinence) is the right and ONLY way for some ladies. We are all so unique, so we should really be honest with ourselves and ask God to reveal the right path for each of us. It seems to me that you already know what works best for you and what will give you long term results, which is very important.
Praying even now that God will show you exactly what your journey should look like.

I am learning so much from your blogs. I do have a question about deciding to abstain from a given food… I find that whatever I am eating there is always the food that is the tastiest – the treat. So if I get rid of chocolate, greek yoghurt, fruit salad and cheese – secondary ‘treat’ foods will take their place – cheesy oatcakes for instance. There will always be a ‘treat’ food. So although that abstinence makes sense for things that are truly addictive, abstinence in the realm of food may simply shift the focus from one treat food to another… the logical conclusion is that you end up only eating foods that are distasteful to you or not that enjoyable. For this reason, I believe that ‘legalising’ all foods allows your body to express its preference and takes the sting out of the foods that are especially tasty. I have not got this balance quite right yet and still struggle to eat small portions of ice cream – however, sometimes I simply don’t want ice cream and I don’t buy it, even though I have given myself permission. For me this is the best route because I will always succeed in finding a food to idolise whatever the list of permitted foods I give myself.

Comment on Surrender 2016 to Jesus! by Molly Ellis https://www.blogeatingdisorder.com/surrender-2016-to-jesus/#comment-198656 Sat, 02 Jan 2016 16:44:35 +0000 http://www.blogeatingdisorder.com/?p=1589#comment-198656 Heleen,
I love the way you write. You\’re always encouraging, to the point, and easy to understand. God has used you in my life since I first signed on to Surrendered Hearts, back in 2012. Thank you for your honesty, your transparency and your tenacity. You are an inspiration to me.
I am a 54 year old mother to 3, with grandbabies 5 and 6 coming this year AND I am blessed to still have healthy parents who are 83 and 84. My mom says I’m in the “sandwich generation”. ? I feel extremely blessed, but at the same time, pulled in so many directions. I want to be everything to everybody –which can be draining.
It\’s a blessing from my Savior to have a \"friend\" like you to cheer me on as I navigate through these busy years. I realize I\’m ahead of you in years; this makes me appreciate your Godly wisdom even more!
Thank you for this greatly needed reminder to keep it simple and just focus on the One who loves me the most. Keep writing! He is using you to bring hope to women who feel hopeless.
I hope YOU experience the sweet, loving presence of God even as you read these words.

Sincerely, Molly Ellis

God uses people like you to touch people like us!!!♡
I read your Surrender to God and I want to tell you…….that is one of my deepest wishes to do in my life……but you won\’t believe me, I struggle to get still and connect with God
the way you describe it! I have such a longing to do it but can\’ t just get there…..I sometimes feel so helpless and quilty because, I feel a failure to God……why can\’t I sit and just be with Him?!
It is like I just can\’t do it and I don\’t have control……please pray for me and please write to me what you think……
Jesus love…….Elmarie
