I'm a grandmother. And I really hate to confess that after all these years, I've become a closet eater. Once I start eating, it seems I cannot stop. Everyone will be over for a family meal I've prepared, and as soon as they leave, I go back for second and even third helpings!
Since my husband passed a few years ago, it's all I can do to deal with the stress of working full time, running my own household, and helping my grandchildren. Plus my parents are still living, and I try to help them weekly as well.
It seems that everybody needs me. I'm exhausted and spread so thin. I feel guilty if I don't help my loved ones when they need me the most. Besides, I really do want to help!
Yet how do I handle all this stress? I turn to food. I've noticed I'm feeling depressed and overcome with anxiety about this and life in general.
In truth, I long for lasting victory that only God can offer me. I just cannot figure out how to find that freedom. Food gives me comfort, but it is so fleeting and has damaging results on my identity and only stresses me more.
I'm ready to see what I can learn and do in practical ways to find that freedom once and for all.
