I have something exciting (and slightly nerve-wracking) to share with you.
I’m so excited to announce that I am a brand new regular contributor for Compared to Who – a Christian site dedicated to women struggling with body image. (Go ahead and check it out, I’ll wait right here!)
You can check out my first post here: My Eating Disorder Story – Battling Bulimia and Receiving New Grace. And ya’ll. I hold nothing back.
Here’s a snippet:
I’ve never really talked about it.
While it’s not the best ice-breaking conversation starter, and tends to be rather personal, it’s not that I’m embarrassed. I’ve just never had a desire to, really. Or maybe I never had the right words.
Once I moved long past it, I buried it deep, choking any thought of it seeing the light of day.
In time, in what I can only attribute to the Lord working in my heart, I began to feel this slight, gentle, persistent nudge.
To get to know me is to know my story – ugly details and all.
So, hi. I’m Alicia. It’s time to share my battle with bulimia.
If you have ever struggled with an eating disorder, body image, or know someone who has, I think you will find encouragement, not only in this post, but in this entire website.
Make sure to check out the other articles while you’re there. I know you will leave encouraged and uplifted.
Do you need structure and organization, but still crave daily encouragement?
