important "peace" of advice

When I'm battling the demons of disordered eating, I long for peace.  To make peace with food, the inner struggles with disordered eating patterns, obsessive thoughts, compulsive eating, and the resulting despair, shame and guilt.

Peace can not be found in food.  Food is fuel, and should be treated as such.  Food is not love, it doesn't effectively soothe anxiety, depression or loneliness.  It may temporarily improve mood, but this is only a fleeting side effect.

True peace and joy can only be found in God.  When my focus is on Him, everything else will fall into place.
