Stats - came in 2011 at 35 years old and 320 Lbs. Now maintaining a 150 lb loss for the last 4 years.
Only one of 5 kids who was overweight.. I was a participant in my life. My weight did not define me but it was always with me.
Lost 90 lbs before getting pregnant, Put on 100 during and after.
I had heard about OA from my mom forever so I knew where to go when I was ready.
3.5 years for physical recovery. Finally hooked up with a sponsor and worked the steps from a phone meeting way before Covid forced it upon us.
Going through the steps and the Big Book transformed my recovery, my relationship with a Higher Power and I achieved food neutrality.
I ended up overeating with fruit which was triggered by dextrose in salt pack at work AND because I did not tell the truth to my sponsor.
Today I maintain my weight and my clothes always fit.
I can be with my family without enjoy them enjoying thier food.
I work the steps every day as need without shame. and wrap my day up with a review of my successes and a ask God to help me get better in other areas.
