Randi Z shares how she has achieved 36 years of abstinence in OA, overcoming the compulsive eating she had since four years old, triggered by family drama, sibling rivalry, and other dysfunctionality that led her to use food as a way to deal with feelings of inadequacy. She describes the trifecta her mom abused her with, how she used her brain to try to build self-esteem and why of that idea failed in college. She describes what triggered 40 pounds of weight gain college, how food became her “lover”, and how she was introduced to OA 1976.
She tells how she was led to believe that nothing is more important than abstinence, how to deal with feelings, how she dealt with being an angry person, how she broke the cycle of food addiction with her children, and what important relationship skills she has learned. Finally, she shares the miracle that occurred when she was looking for a job that helped her never doubt her higher power afterward. We know you will find Randi’s pitch an encouragement in hard times.
