MY FIRST OVEREATERS ANONYMOUS MEETING
Everyone in the O.A. meeting looked overweight. I have a phone number for a woman in the meeting.
But I want to get help from someone who’s successfully lost the weight. My friends, Sammie and his wife, have lost their weight. I’d rather talk to his wife about losing weight, since she has had more success than the O.A. folks.
After all, I wouldn’t want to take swimming lessons from someone who can barely keep his/her head above water.
Sammie’s wife has sent me her dieting/eating plan and some sample recipes, after I asked. I feel hopeful for this. I’d like to lose 10-20 pounds (5-9 kg).
The solution to emotional eating is to recognize the signs, and then take steps to care and nurture myself, emotionally.
