Cured Of My Eating Disorder!
I had first encountered the book version of The Secret years ago when I was in high school. At that time, I didn’t quite understand it and brushed it off. However, I never forgot about it and kept it in the back of my mind.
Over the years, I had developed an obsession with dieting. An eating disorder, if you will. I come from a health-conscious family overly concerned about food, so it was natural for me to care about eating healthy too. I also come from a family of Type 2 diabetics, and seeing the complications of the disease have instilled a fear of getting it myself someday. I became obsessed with what I ate every single day because I was afraid of getting fat and diabetic. I forced myself to eat foods I thought were healthy. It didn’t matter how they tasted and I never ate purely for pleasure. I had a mindset of restriction and limitation. No matter what diet I was on, there were always foods I didn’t allow myself to have because I was afraid they would ruin my health. This feeling of restriction often led me to binge eating the “bad” foods later. This always led to guilt and I would try harder to diet again the next day. There wasn’t a single day I didn’t think about eating. I was obsessed and living in fear, stuck in the unhealthy cycle of binging and restricting.
Then came The Secret. Somehow, I had decided to watch the movie and this time, it made perfect sense! It worked like a charm, attracting the people I wanted into my life. I decided to try it with my dieting problem too. I wanted to stop caring about food.
This was what I did: I asked to be able to eat anything I want and stay thin and healthy. I gave thanks for my wonderful health and beautiful body and truly felt grateful. I told myself that I have an extremely fast metabolism and that my blood sugar is perfect. I held the image of that in my head. I trusted that God would take care of my body for me without me worrying.
Just like that, I stopped caring about what I ate. It was so fast and easy! Now I allow myself to eat anything, as long as it tastes good and makes me happy. The miracle is, I’m not even gaining weight no matter what or how much I eat. In fact, I’m getting thinner! I even ate a bunch of cookies once and when I tested my blood sugar, it was surprisingly normal! In the past, doing this would make my numbers shoot sky high.
I am so grateful that learning The Secret has finally freed me. My eating disorder has been cured!!! Now I can eat whatever I want and still be healthy. I never have to think about food again! Thank you so, so much for sharing The Secret. I hope to write even more success stories in the future.
Remember everyone, this is all you have to do: Ask for what you want, believe you will get it, imagine and feel as if you already have it, and feel grateful for it. Then it will come into your life. Good luck and may your dreams come true!
