Yesterday afternoon I went to my first Overeaters Anonymous meeting. I think I liked the vibe better than WW since there is more intense sharing, although I’ll need to get used to the higher power aspect. I ordered some books and materials to read through and listened to the Step One podcast on the way to work this morning.
I cried a lot listening to other people’s stories and then got two people’s phone numbers at the end for support. Going to check out another meeting later this week or next. Interested in using the tools and learning more about the 12 steps and 12 traditions in order to help me learn to recover from binge eating. I’m a little worried about whether I need to totally eliminate my trigger foods from my food plan, or whether I can ever learn to eat those foods in moderation.
Anybody else out there go to OA? What worked for you?Embed from Getty Images
