FR.LEO'S DAILY MEDITATION #essentialsofrecovery


“Obesity is really widespread.”

~ Joseph O. Kern II 

To overeat compulsively is to be lost. It is the result of addiction, like alcoholism and drug abuse. Compulsive overeating and other eating disorders are widespread. Sometimes they manifest as one recovers from another addiction. Cross addiction would be a tragedy for me. Today I stay focused and aware. I reach out to others and avoid isolation. I may be tempted to overeat or abuse sugar, but this can be changed. People can and do recover from food compulsion by surrendering to reality.

My people-pleasing must be addressed. Feelings I bury behind food must be expressed. Recovery happens when I love and believe in myself.

Dear God, You hear the prayers of all Your children; please hear my prayers, too.
