So we are learning that weight gain does not come from just eating the wrong foods. Truth is we are discovering why we like to binge eat. It isn’t just the state of the physical battle with food because it taste good but truthfully binge eating is a state of mind and emotion.
Let me tell you more about my diet and binge eating journey. So a years down the road I dated a lot of guys until I decided I would get married then came along the new era of the people pleaser mentality. I was forever trying to cook to please my new companion and it always seemed like there was a complaint.
But I have to say I always loved my cooking. I loved my cooking WAY more than I should have, so putting away the leftovers was the best part of the meal time. I can remember scooping the macaroni and cheese back into the Tupperware container only to find myself taking three and four and five large bites as I was putting it away.

So a years down the road I dated a lot of guys until I decided I would get married then came along the new era of the people pleaser mentality. I was forever trying to cook to please my new companion and it always seemed like there was a complaint.
But I have to say I always loved my cooking. I loved my cooking WAYmore than I should have, so putting away the leftovers was the best part of the meal time. I can remember scoping the macaroni and cheese back into the Tupperware container only to find myself taking three and four and five large bites as I was putting it away.
Then it was family gatherings and being asked to bring something to the party and I always wanted to make sure I had plenty so I would make a double batch and keep half of one of the batch for myself. And while at the party I would tell myself that If I exercised before going to the party I could induldge. I deserved it, I thought.
In my relationships in my younger years I was constantly feeling offended. Insulted. Not good enough. And so I was always trying to please with the food that I cooked, whatever it might be I find myself not being myself anymore. In fact he got to the point where I was so out of touch with myself I didn’t know who anymore.
So again I would go on these extreme cycles working out double classes, doing well all week and then when I had my pay check, I would find myself stopping in a variety store parking lot. I would start thinking about going in the store buying that one ring ding but a box of them and not buying one candy bar but two of them are not buying , One ice cream sandwich but the whole box. And I go inside and is embarrassed as I felt it was ugly as I felt I would just grab what I needed to grab in the cash over and jump in my car. Then I would sit in the parking lot and have a party. I would eat and eat and eat until I couldn’t eat anymore.
then I throw the rest away go home and feel awful physically mentally emotionally. Again I don’t fall was I was too concerned about what people thought and always trying to please everyone and not looking at the situation for what it really was.
A few years later I gave birth to two beautiful little boys in baking became one of my favourite hobbies. Guess what my excuse was always baking to make it fun for my children. I knew deep down inside that this was going to be just as much fun to me it was for them.
When we are binge eating we don’t have much self-respect. Because we feel guilty about the quantity of food that we are consuming in the way we look and so we carry a poor self image. Since we do not respect ourselves we did not act in a way that would invoke respect from others. So we keep putting ourselves down.
We begin to learn that change means making the decision to put food and mood aside and include putting prayer first and talking to God about my struggles.
In Colossians three verse two we read set your mind on things above. So to set on mine doesn’t only mean to set our Mind just on heaven, but what God is telling us is to set online on his will. What he’s hoping for us what he love to see happen in our life out of his love for us. So you can start your day in the morning by purposely thinking about the things that God would had you set your mind on that would be pleasing to him.
God Loves shows us self respect and this is how we begin to grow and acquire self-control. When we stop binge eating begin to live in accordance with the love of God we can accept and respect ourselves once again.
Yes you can have a step-by-step system to break free from binge eating but that still doesn’t mean there aren’t going to be some challenges along the way.

God will give us the gift of self respect because he loves us more than anything and know you are of high value because of your father in heaven.
