Speakers who have lost 100 pounds tell their stories.

Sharon celebrated 4 years of rededicated abstinence with us tonight.  She has been around the program for over 35 years which shows her persistence and intent to recover in this program.  She struggled with her weight since she was about 5 years old and started going to diet doctors and taking diet pills at a fairly young age. After the diet pills stopped working as a barrier between the food, she tried commercial weight loss programs for many years and never found much success.  She always struggled with self-esteem and wanted to be something that she wasn't.  Eventually, she came to the program and has not left, even among moving to 3 different states.  Over the course of her recovery, she has realized that she has something valuable to offer those around her.  In addition, she now knows that the program is about the physical, emotional and spiritual recovery.  To this day, she keeps at the forefront of her mind that her 4 priorities are Abstinence, Fellowship, Service, and Faith in her Higher Power.
