For twelve years my life was dictated by a standard of perfection and by the eating disorder that had claimed and controlled my life. Three years ago I started recovery for my eating disorder and I cannot begin to describe how much more abundant and filled with joy my life has become. I used to struggle everyday fighting this battle with Ed (my eating disorder) but I have and am learning how to live a life not dictated by my disorder. In short, I am now living a life of freedom. I was saved by grace and now I am learning to live a life of grace, which also means having grace on myself. My prayer is that this blog will be an encouragement and provide hope to those whose life has been inflicted with this pain. To those reading let me say there is hope and I am only beginning on a path towards a life filled with grace, hope and joy.

    Hey girl! Thank you so much for stopping by. After reading through some of your posts, I just had to comment on how truly inspiring, strong and amazing you are! We both have fought and battled this darn Ed; have seen the power that it could have on us and our lives but even more importantly, the power that we have to overcome it and kick it’s bum to the curb. I want you to know that I am here anytime you need it, sweety. Though I still have those negative thoughts creep up every once in a while, I am finally at a place where I am happy, healthy and strong. I am living ED free and want you to know that it is possible. Stay strong and keep writing! I have no doubt you will inspire and help others out there πŸ™‚

  3. I teared up a little while reading this – I can’t wait to follow your journey! It’s so awesome that you feel called to help people who have gone through what you did. That just shows how God can work through the most awful things!

  4. Love your site and your heart for sharing what you’ve been through.

    When I was in 6th grade and up to 8th grade I suffered from anorexia as well. I just remember being so distorted in my appearance, I also was “gothic”. I remember hitting end of 8th grade year, finding Jesus and my life changed. Completely.
    Sweet blessings to you, Martha. You are beautiful!

  5. This is such an excellent blog. I wish I had your flare of writing . Your words inspire me. I deal with ED in Muslim world. I will refer people to your inspiring blog. Keep up the excellent work and keep spreading grace.
