Heleen’s Freedom story
I know how it feels to not want to get out of bed in the morning. I know the feeling of guilt and shame that follows you around. I know about the negative thoughts racing through your mind all day long. I know the feeling of: “Everything in my life is always out of control”. I especially know about promising yourself to do better every morning, and then, the bitter taste of failure every night when you realize once again: “I can NOT do this!”
I honestly know about the shame and isolation of this struggle. I too have gone online countless nights in search of answers. I know about the futile attempts to fix this with willpower, diets, questionable programs, and dangerous methods. I too have begged God to just take this thing from me.
I have suffered from eating disorders for a long time.
At one point I just couldn’t stand it anymore. I hated all the false promises, my health was deteriorating rapidly, and I simply had to find some truth. So I read everything I could lay my hands on and took every course I could find out there. I also followed almost every diet on the planet. Some things helped me for a while and others just made matters worse. In the end, I found that dealing with certain issues and putting certain things in place caused the death grip that eating disorders had on me to loosen.
I saw myself moving away from it and I could breathe again. Huge breakthroughs came when I finally found the courage to break my “code of silence”. I told others about my struggle and asked for support and prayer. It was a difficult journey of falling and getting up. Sometimes I didn’t want to get up, but God helped me and I made it.
Good things came out of those years of trials and research:
I gathered enough information that I could actually throw out all the useless stuff and hang on to the good things that really helped. I wrote a 12 Week program that covers all of the essential components that is needed to get out of eating disorders or food addiction and started support groups for women who struggle with this issue.
