Written by BRIDGET MAY From high school onward, my life was mostly about losing or gaining weight and hating myself and my body because I wasn’t thin. In the late 1970’s, after losing weight by restricting sugar and sweets, I started binge eating. It got really bad when I changed careers and moved away […]
After working through this issue using the tools we have at our fingertips, I felt healed from my negative feelings. I shared with my friend and accountability partner Deanna Lewis that I felt like I had been washed on an old fashioned wash board, put through a wringer and now I have been hung up on a wash line to hang in the healing light of the SON! It was hard. It was difficult. But it was so worth it!

I forgot something very important last week that nearly sent me on a downward spiral. I am praising the Lord for helping me to remember this important bit of information. I forgot that when Jesus Christ died on the cross for me and was resurrected and because I have placed my faith and trust in […]
Last week I saw a video on Facebook where a girl was talking about how we all feel fat sometimes. You know that feeling. You wake up and just feel fat. Well, she said something that really stuck with me. FAT IS NOT A FEELING Ok, so today I have been feeling fat. Bloated. Icky. Like I […]
Struggles are a part of everyday life, but making a simple change took me from grouchy to glowing.
