Hi. I’m Clayton. Yup, that’s me with the fishing pole. I know what you’re thinking: “Wow, I can’t believe what an avid outdoorsman he is. I bet he’s wrestled a bear!” I know, right?
I’m overweight. Fat. Obese. Pleasantly Plump.
You know what? I’m sick of it. So, I started this blog. I have two separate purposes in doing so:
- I want to bring my struggles into the light. John (ya know, the Bible John) said, “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” I know, I know, I got all Jesus-y on you. But his words are true. When I keep my struggles in the dark, I’m alone. I struggle alone. I eat alone. I grieve alone. I hate myself alone. That’s dumb. So I’m not doing it anymore.
- I want to be an encouragement to other people on similar journeys. I know plenty of people struggling with food addiction, and I’m certain there are plenty more I don’t know. So let’s walk through this together.
In the coming days I’ll post various stories of my struggles with food – physical, emotional, spiritual, and, well, everything…ual… I hope you’ll join me on this excursion into becoming better versions of ourselves.
