Commitment to Reshape It All

Alright girls, I've decided to join in on this 65 day commitment to Reshape It All.  Reshaping It All is Candace Cameron Bure's latest book about her battle with food, bulimia and how she has embraced a healthier lifestyle and outlook on weight.

If you read my last post, you know that after my youngest was born I went through a dark time and thus my battle with food began.  While I didn't acknowledge back then that I was an emotional eater...I was.  I gained 50 lbs causing my self-esteem to go in the toilet. {And, if I'm going to be completely honest even when I was a size 2 or 4 as a teenager and in my early 20s I still had a very distorted image of what I looked like.}

I blamed my weight gain on hormones, etc...not seeing it for what it really was until about 2 years ago.  For over a year now I have kept my weight off, but at times it is still very much a battle for me to keep the commitment to stay healthy when we live a busy lifestyle and also not go to the pantry when I feel stressed.  Also, as a woman in general I still battle seeing myself in an unhealthy light...I still battle insecurity and I'm tired of it!  Being a mom of two little girls, I want to overcome this so that I can know that they too can overcome! With everything in me I don't want them to have the same battles and insecurities that I have had.

Even if your battle isn't with weight, but your battle is with how you see yourself...I would love for you to join me on this journey.  Let me know if you are with me!

I am excited to be joining you!
P.s. you have a SUPER cute blog!
I'm with you! I bought the book on Tuesday and I'm loving it!! Such great insights from Candace. What I have been mostly challenged by so far is the whole issue of SELF-CONTROL, and how, with God's help, we truly can have self-control. I think it's one of those fruits of the spirit that I neglect, and I don't want to any longer. I know I am at a healthy weight, but I want to learn how to stop thinking about food as much and how to refocus this energy on Christ. He alone truly satisfies, which I am continuing to learn over and over again. :)

Kim, I just read your post and I started to cry...I know that I have definitely been struggling with where you found yourself a few years ago. Although the circumstances may be different for me, the depression, the anger, the overeating, and the mental chaos is the same. Thanks for sharing your story! Luv ya, Barb

Hey, Kim! I recently bought Candace's book and I'm on the fourth chapter! I feel inspired by her writings and I am seeking the Lord's help to break out and let go of the old negative "weights" that are weighing me down! Thanks for your encouragement! I miss you! Love ya, Barb
