Gary, with 23 months abstinent and 106 pounds of weight loss, shares his lifelong struggle with compulsive overeating, exercise builimia and weight loss and the success he has obtained as a result of working the program. He came to OA many times in the past, but pride and ego led him back out. His final wakeup call before his current abstinence was triggered by the death of his father, kidney cancer, and atrial fibrillation. He recovered from all of these complications and knew that it was only by God that he was still alive. In his current abstinence, he focuses on his spiritual connection and on being of service to others.
