Joe shares his amazing story of how he got out of the isolation and self-destruction of compulsive overeating. He knew that he was different from his peers with regards to food at an early age and turned to food as comfort. His top weight was 550 pounds and he has an abstinence date of 2/14/2009. Through his recovery, he has given away 225 pounds. He finally found the willingness to embrace OA and follow a sponsor's direction. Although there have been many painful moments, he persevered with the help of the fellowship and his Higher Power.
