Steve came from Long Beach tonight to share his story of honesty and self-discovery.
His top weight was 335 pounds and in 2.5 years of abstinence, he has lost 115 pounds from that top weight.
As a child, he knew he was different from his fellows and had resigned himself to a compulsive overeating death after he got out of high school. His Higher Power stepped in, however, and brought him around Overeaters Anonymous until Steve finally took hold of the program.
His abstinence is not strict like a lot of other 100 pounders, but he knows today what does and doesn't work. In addition, the way he works his program helps him to stay out comparison with others and allows him to focus on his program and his spiritual growth.
