Mill Creek OA 100 Pounder Speaker Meeting
Speakers who have lost 100 pounds tell their stories.

Roz offers her moving story of how it was in the beginning of her eating disorder and how it nearly killed her. She then shares how her life was transformed with the miracles promised in the Big Book.

The first 15 mintues is of her telling her story.  The second 15 minutes are an answer and question section which may be hard to hear.  And the very last 2 minutes is of Roz re-telling the touching story of the Velveteen Rabbit.  Please be patient with the sound quality.

Roz B. is the driving force behind helping to make Orange County, California, the thriving recovering community it now is.  We are all deeply grateful for her continuing positive influence on our lives in OA.

Bob opens his talk saying, “Instead of asking God to give me the strength, I thank God for the strength he’s already given me, and I thank God for the ability to speak clearly, tell the truth and carry the message of hope tonight.”  Once he got to an OA meeting he stayed and did what his sponsor said and got service commitments.  Later on his sponsor asked, “What do you want to do with the rest of your life?”  He felt like a deer in the headlights – He had never considered that since he didn’t think he’d live very long.  Encouraged by his sponsor he was able to go back to school and get his dream job of being an aircraft mechanic.   By example he shows that it’s not just about the weight.

Liz always worried about getting her share of food at home with her family.  She always wanted more, more, more.  She hated school so when she got home she'd eat an entire bag of Doritos - in first grade!

She got abstinent working the steps and will have a year of abstinence soon with about 56 pounds of weight lost.

Even on a cruise she lost weight!!!  Half the reason she choose a cruise was so she could enjoy all the food.  But she brought her program with her, did the work, worked on her fourth step.  She stayed absintent during the whole cruise.  She says God  meet her more than half way.  She says the OA program gave her a level of freedom she never thought she could acheive.
