Episode 14—Rhonda Burrows: Overcoming Food Addiction

Overcoming Food Addiction:

Rhonda Burrows

Rhonda Burrows, an Overcomers Academy member, a trained addiction counselor and ordained minister, knows addiction well. Still, she was sober from alcoholism for over 30 years when the truth hit her that she is also a food addict.

She has been walking out of food addiction for almost six years after joining my various coaching groups and courses. Today she has lost over 50 pounds off of her small 4-foot, 11-inch frame. She says there are mental, spiritual and physical components at play that she has to navigate to walk in the freedom Christ is bringing her.

Along the way, she learned she had to give up her “golden calf” of comfort. “I thought food was my golden calf, but God showed me it really was what I thought I was getting from food and that was comfort.” Today she’s learning how to live in the real, true comfort of the Holy Spirit.

Right now Overcomers Christian Weight Loss Academy is open for new members only through Feb. 7 at noon. To join Rhonda, Teresa and the other members go here: https://TeresaShieldsParker.com/Overcomers-Christian-Weight-Loss-Academy/
