“I will stand tall and proud and know what was done to me.” This is what the author stated as she started her journey to wholeness. Debra Mazda, M.Ed. tells the compelling story of abuse, food addiction, and being an over comer in her book Eating My Secrets.
Debra was raised in a dysfunctional family. Her father left her home at a young age. Her mother was distant and self-absorbed. Debra was sexually abused by her mother’s boyfriend before puberty while her brother was in the bunk above them. To deal with the trauma, she ate until she became morbidly obese. This led to other abusive relationships, feeling of inadequacy and finally a mental breakdown. Debra overcomes through the love of God and accepting who she is on the inside not what she looks like on the outside.
Eating My Secrets is a story of forgiveness, hope and being victorious over the past. Debra is very transparent with her story. I plan on using some of the tools she has shared to lead a healthier life. This is a great book to help you become whole and move forward from the traumas of the past.
