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.

All about Step one.
When I came to OA I thought everyone was abstinent, so I did to.
Last Xmas I 12 stepped 2 caregivers.
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.
