Thus begins a series of posts wrapping up 2017. This is the first of one of the recovery lessons God taught me in 2017 that I wanted to share with you. (Linking up with Amanda a little bit late to think out loud!)
Sugar. I’ve written a few posts about it, and I am no nutritional expert. Yet I was thankful for Haley addressing sugar and the sugar detox (especially if you’ve had an ED) on her Instagram stories yesterday. It fueled the thinking behind this post and something I’ve learned in 2017.
Now. I am not judging you if you need to do a sugar detox, but mentally for me, that wouldn’t be a good place to go. I’ve done them before out of a restrictive mindset, and it wasn’t good for me. I looked at sugar as an enemy, and I had these thoughts of, ‘If I eat a second dessert will I die earlier?’ I didn’t think about how every step of my life is guided by the Lord. YES! I should take care of my body as God’s temple (1 Corinthians 6), but I am NOT to worry (Philippians 4).
