in my 20s and 30s I was a great dieter as a restrictor leading to being under nourished.
Today I turn to my Higher Power in times of stress instead of the food.
1st OA was just me and the speaker. She spoke and got my attention.
Weighing, recording and reporting honestly is critical for my recovery.

Excellence was expected at home and it separated me from my peers. Food filled my emotional holes.
Eating other's leftover from the trash was a hint something was wrong.
In college my life looked good superficially, but it wasn't.
I completely gave up, was suicidal and my recovery began.
My spiritual awakening was transformational but not the end of my journey with food.
I could rationalize minor incremental moves away from abstinence.
Today my FIRST priority will be my addiction OR my recovery. There can be only one.

Every Diet worked once. I tried them all.
I was 12 stepped by my wife and I didn't even know it was happening.
OA was OK but I had a big problem with the word 'GOD'.
After a substantial relapse I was finally, 'Willing to go to any lengths'.
Today my program affords me an astounding life.
