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

In my youth I got a rush from stealing and an escape with the food.

Long term cycles of feast and famine(excersize, restriction tec.)

I was in OA for 8 years without a sponsor. 'Surprise' I had no recovery.

Today i have a daily ritual for my recovery which has led to my 2.5 years abstinent,

I was given sugar instead of a bottle.

Program worked when I laid down the food and picked up a pen.

Never, Never, Never give up.

my 4th step made me suicidal because I had no God. 

Since I developed a belief and relationship with a Higher Power he has saved me regularly.

Lost 100 lbs and put it back before entering Law School.

Wore Tee shirts until I was 30 because I was afraid of bursting my buttons.

The beginning of my recovery was a spiritual experience that  makes no sense, cannot be explained and has been with me 40 years.

Huge amount of food and huge amount of laxatives.

It took four months after a 3 week relapse to feel sane.

After a long time in the program I had to give up all my sponsees to work on myself.

I am on a spiritual journey. The food blocks me from this process.

I will never have a normal relationship with food.

Weight kicked up at puberty

My first OA Meeting the church was locked. There was one other person and I knew I was home.

I lost 100 lbs in 9 months and was rocking in OA until Iost my sponsor and decided to sponsor myself.

160 later I found my way back to OA and was welcomed.

The OA community and service makes me know I am not alone.

Dieted from 7th grade to age 50. yo-yo-yo and the swings got bigger.

I had a plan for my college reunion to loose weight. I did not go to my reunion.

I had a friend who talked about OA. She lost weight while I gained.

Gave up sugar after my first OA Meeting. 

God was the hardest part of OA for me. That is absolutely not the case for me today.
