As a child chubby turned into obese and brough in speed.
I just wanted to be able to pick a dress off the rack.
I had lost weight but was very unhealthy when I was 12 stepped in a hair salon.
Changed from 'What are you going to do about it' to what am I going to do about it.

Binged and purged my way up to over 200 lbs.
If you think you can't do your food plan the rest of your life, it is a diet.

Food helped me feel safe in an unsafe environment growing up.
When binging and restricting failed me I added exercise bulimia to my repertoire of inappropriate tools.
First came to OA in 2003, Did everything I was told except get a sponsor and do the steps.
Once back I came to believe if it worked for others it could work for me.

Food was not my problem, it was my solution but it was killing me.
I hid my pain by eating compulsively.
Coming from my very dark place the light offered by OA was blinding. I need the program and steps to make the adjustment possible.
