I had an amazing husband of 25 years who loved me unconditionally, 5 amazing children, plenty of wonderful friends and family, and a loving relationship with God – truly a life that I loved, yet I could not get my relationship with food in control. I often prayed for God to deliver me from my food addiction and take away all cravings for unhealthy food. I had tried every diet and plan available. In past weight loss attempts, there was usually short term success, but eventually I was right back to obsessing over food and bingeing on sugar and flour filled foods. I began praying for a permanent solution out of this food obsession. I was ready to fully surrender! After one such prayer, I came across the idea of Brightline Eating®. This is simply the idea of following bright lines or boundaries in regards to food; no sugar, no flour, 3 meals a day, and measured portions. I DID have to eat food to survive, but I DID NOT have to eat sugar and flour. I knew in that moment that my rescue boat had arrived and I just had to jump in and paddle! I began eating amazing, delicious, and abundant amounts of food. A lifestyle change, rather than a diet, was exactly what I needed!
