Many months ago (before I found out I was pregnant with Baby #3), I discovered something that changed my outlook on my Thin Within journey. It was sort of like a paradigm shift.  I’ll sum it up in two words: counterfeit hunger. It’s obvious that I’ve known about such a thing through my journey of […]

Don’t Look Back

dontlookback

You are going along happily in your Thin Within journey and you are finding freedom from diets, when BAM, you are tempted to look back at those diets.  There are situations that can tempt us to look back (not being happy with the number on the scale, breaking your boundaries too often, feeling like you will […]

Renewing-of-the-mind Alarm

CHIRP!  The purpose of smoke alarms in our home is to let us know there is smoke hot enough, born from a fire, and that we need to get out!  The alarms tell us to find safety, and that our lives are endangered.  Their purpose is to save lives.  So when a smoke alarm’s battery runs low, […]

Failure Leads to Victory

We get so discouraged when we break a boundary.  We eat when we aren’t hungry (zero).  We blow past satisfaction (5).  We bring out that “club of condemnation” one more time (sigh). But wait!  STOP!  Pause.  Freeze it right there!  Come a little closer to the screen.  Yes, there.   Now let me tell you a little […]

It’s Not About the Food

It may be controversial, but I think we blame the food too much when it comes to our weight.  When it comes to releasing weight and getting thin within, I personally believe it’s not about the food.  In the past, when we want to shed the pounds, we change the way we eat.  We count.  […]

Starving the Skinny Idol

Matthew2237b

A few weeks ago, the Lord told me to “starve the skinny idol”.  This was shortly after He showed me that I had made “skinny” an idol in my life.  It was quite shocking news!  Me?  Serving an idol?  Yup! I dreamed of having “rock hard abs” or “flat abs”.  I had envisioned myself looking […]

Accepted

We all want to be accepted for who we truly are.  But the truth is that not everyone will accept us.  We cannot please everyone.  These are truths the Lord taught me years ago and continues to do so.  He showed me that He is pleased with me and that if I am living my […]

Letting Myself Be Free

On June 6, 2014 at 3:00 am, the Lord gave me a dream.  My son woke up shortly after I had the dream for a feeding.  As I was feeding him his bottle, the Lord gave me the interpretation to the dream.  I couldn’t wait to write the dream and the interpretation in my journal.  […]

Galatians 5:1

One particular morning, just recently, I was writing in my journal and talking to the Lord about how maybe I need to hold particular foods with open hands.  Then He stopped me in my thoughts and this is what I wrote: You are showing me that I’m trying to go back to food focus.  I’m thinking […]
