With 13 years of abstinence and a 97 pound weight loss Ron’s story is riveting. In his early teens he was felt insecure and self conscious. After having gained about 100 pounds in 6 months he tried karate, racketball and basketball to try to exercise the weight off. But he could never get his weight down to where he wanted it to be.
His family teased him one day at a restaurant saying, “Just hand Ron the food when you’re done – he’ll eat it.” That embarrassment led him to decide to diet. So he went to some OA meeting and tried it on his own and it went horribly. Finally he looked at the newsletter and the list of sponsors and called one. That changed everything for him.
